Is sunscreen safe for my baby’s skin?
Your baby’s skin is extra sensitive to just about every outside element as they’re being introduced to new things every day. Protecting your baby’s skin from UV light is especially important to prevent skin cancer and other dangerous heat-related illness. But many sunscreens on the market use harmful chemical ingredients that can irritate skin and may cause other negative side effects, including:
Oxybenzone is a common chemical filter that absorbs UV light before it reaches the skin, and can also seep into the body and remain there for an unknown period of time. Oxybenzone is a toxic ingredient that’s been linked to hormone disruption, early onset puberty in girls, and even skin cancer.
- Retinyl Palmitate:
This chemical is a synthetic form of vitamin A, and can potentially form lesions when applied to skin in the sun. It can also cause acute toxicity if vitamin A is over-applied or consumed. Symptoms of a toxic reaction include changes in vision, bone pain, and skin damage.
PABA is another popular chemical that blocks UV light irritates skin. Exposure to PABA can result in redness, swelling, inflammation, and itching. It can also darken skin pigmentation and contribute to skin cancer. Colorescience offers PABA-free safe sunblock for babies to protect their skin without causing irritation.
Colorescience offers the safest sunscreen for babies over six months old, rich with natural physical sunscreen ingredients that protect your baby’s skin for the sun while also nourishing it.
Are there safe sunscreen alternatives for my baby?
Absolutely! When purchasing any product for your child, you want to make sure it only uses the best, safest ingredients available. Colorescience safe sunscreen for babies only uses skin-friendly ingredients and gentle minerals to shield their sensitive skin without causing damage or posing harmful side effects. Plus, our safe baby sunscreen with 50 or 30 SPF is easy to apply and totally mess-free. Our SUNFORGETTABLE® TOTAL PROTECTION™ BRUSH-ON SHIELD is an all-mineral SPF powder for sensitive skin so busy parents can reapply on-the-go without the sticky, greasiness of conventional sunblocks. Or, opt for our liquid formula SUNFORGETTABLE® TOTAL PROTECTION™ FACE SHIELD SPF 50 that’s lightweight, hydrating, and never greasy.
What ingredients does Colorescience use in their sunscreen?
Our safe sunscreen for babies only uses high-quality ingredients (no fillers) with gentle minerals like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to deflect UV light without seeping into the skin.
How else can I protect my baby’s skin?
Using a safe baby sunscreen is the most important step in protecting your child’s skin— but parents should always take extra steps to keep them safe from the sun! Cover up your baby’s skin while out and about in the sun with hats, long-sleeved shirts, pants, and rashguards when swimming. Minimize your baby’s exposure to the sun and heat by avoiding the outdoors between 10-2pm, and keep them in the shade whenever possible. And even if the sun’s not totally visible, you should still apply baby sunscreen to make sure they’re safe from UV rays.
Sunforgettable SPF 50 Keeps Me Protected!I love this product! I was introduced to the SPF 30 awhile ago by a friend and just discovered the new SPF 50! What a fantastic product! It's so easy to use and my little ones love it too! they're always asking for me to apply the sunscreen from the blue tube. Thanks Colorescience, for making sun protection fun and easy for the whole family!
Sun protection that feels greatI LOVE this sunscreen. It is so different from anything else I've tried in that it doesn't leave my face feeling greasy, works well with my other makeup and it still protects me from the sun all year round!
Amazing on kiddosNo struggling with goopy lotion of sprays. Just puff them with the brush!
The Face Shield Is PerfectionI purchased this set and am loving the liquid faceshield. It makes my face look so healthy and naturally perfected. I own many high end “tinted” mineral sunscreens in the same price range and a few even in a higher range, but by far, I find the Colorscience to be the best suited for my needs.
While I am also loving the look of the brush-on powder sunscreen on my skin, I am finding it difficult to get the powder to come out. It spits out a small amount of puff in the air, and then it stops delivering. I took it with me on vacation to Kauai, but plan on contacting customer service when I return. I also apply it by closing my eyes and then pat/press it into my skin because I find that it stings and irritates my eyes. To be fair, I have very sensitive eyes. I have absolutely no issues applying the liquid near and around my eyes.
All in all, I’d definitely repurchase the Facehield liquid again and again. While I appreciate the convenience of reapplication of the brush-on powder, the eye stinging might be of further issue. I own several items from this line and look forward to trying other products out.
My kids love this brush!Never a fight to put it on or reapply. I have twin boys who are 7. They have very sensitive skin, and so many other sunscreens irritate their skin. This is perfect! No fights over dusting them with this light brush! This product has been a lifesaver!
