5 All Natural & Chemical-Free Sunscreens Suitable For The Entire Family


Seems you can’t win these days. Looking to avoid getting skin cancer, millions of us slather on sunscreen every year. In the end though we might be actually encouraging skin cancer, especially if using sunscreen with retinyl palmitate. What’s a mom to do? If you’re like me, you seek out organic or natural solutions, put hats on your kids, buy clothing with SPF and keep them in the shade as much as possible.

Here are five all-natural sunscreens to stock up on before summer break gets here:

This broad spectrum spray is perfect for kids. It protects against UVB and UVA rays.

I bought this stick last year for my girls and loved it. Plus, because it’s a stick it was easy for them the apply on their own when they were away at camp.
