I never really thought much about food allergies. My children don’t have them, so my only real shift was to sunflower seed from peanut butter when packing lunches, so as not to cause problems for the kids that do. But I feel so badly for those families who struggle to make everyday foods and products safe for themselves and their kids. For them, life is a constant assessment of potential dangers, adding an additional level of stress to the daily decisions of parenting. So when I discovered that Babo Botanicals truly natural, allergy safe sunscreens are free of nut oils, soy and dairy, I had to share. Ultra sheer and lightweight, yet packing a serious SPF punch, these allergy safe sunscreens are great for everybody. But for families with allergies, they’re a godsend.
Ultra sheer, yet packing a serious SPF punch, these allergy safe sunscreens are great for everybody. But for families with allergies, they’re a godsend. Like all the sunscreens that I recommend, Babo Botanicals are reef-safe and free of red flags like parabens, phthalates and synthetic fragrances—in fact, the entire line is available totally unscented, which makes the allergy safe sunscreens suitable for those with fragrance sensitivities and allergies. Plus, they’re non-GMO and vegan, too.
Formulated with non-nano mineral physical blockers—rather than hormone-disrupting oxybenzone (aka Parsol 1789) and benzophenone-2 (aka BP-2)—these allergy safe sunscreens are still extremely sheer and lightweight. All are top-rated by the Environmental Working Group. And reef safe, of course!
Not just for babies, I especially love Babo Botanicals’ brand-new Daily Sheer Sunscreen SPF 40, which goes on perfectly under makeup and is enhanced with aloe vera, avocado, jojoba, chamomile and calendula, making it super soothing and moisturizing. The Clear Zinc Sunscreen SPF 30—in either lotion or sport stick form—delivers zinc-based protection without white streaks. These allergy safe sunscreens are non-greasy and won’t run into eyes, making them perfect for all ages.
