The Best All-Natural Sunscreens
Did you know that most of the sunscreen you buy at the store are filled with potentially harmful chemicals that can leach into your skin and cause long last effects when used over time? This is a bad thing for any person but when you think about putting this sunscreen on babies and toddlers who tend to put their hands and feet in their mouth, we are essentially letting them lick the sunscreen. So not only is it leaching through their skin, they are ingesting it too.
The best way to protect your family from the sun and from harmful chemicals is to pick an all natural sun screen to use. Below are a few suggestions to help you find the best sunscreen for your needs.
