Green Babies sells a line of body care products that contain certified organic ingredients, and are not tested on animals. If you missed my Green Babies Shampoo & Body Wash review last year, their products do not contain synthetic fragrances, phthalates, parabens, sulfates or petrochemicals.
The zinc oxide, broad spectrum, SPF 30 sunscreen is a new addition to their line, and is formulated to meet new FDA guidelines. The sunscreen contains 20 percent zinc oxide, using non-nano sized particles of zinc oxide. Natural pine bark resin makes it water resistant for up to 40 minutes, and it does not contain oxybenzone, parabens or PABA. The sunscreen is available unscented, or with a light tangerine scent (only essential oils are used to add fragrance.)
We found that while it was a bit thick going on, it quickly absorbed, and any white streaks went away. We reapplied after about an hour in the water, and it worked perfectly. Even my super-duper white 6 month old didn’t get any redness or color, and the unscented sunscreen didn’t irritate his skin a bit. It is a bit pricey with an MSRP of $16.99, but it is a 3 ounce tube (travel friendly) and I don’t have to worry about the sunscreen I’m using to prevent cancer, causing cancer.
I received an aromatherapy spray, which my 7 year old promptly nabbed. She has been dying for her own room spray/air freshener, and this is lightly fragranced so that the scent is pleasant even when she goes a bit overboard!
The sunscreen and travel set both came just in time for our family trip. The travel set comes in a PEVA and 100 percent hemp bag, and has everything you need to travel with baby: Baby Me Shampoo & Wash, Calming Bubble Bath, Smooth Me Detangler and Lotion Potion Moisturizer in travel-approved sizes. This was much easier than squeezing everything into travel bottles! When my husband & daughter flew to visit his parents last year, I couldn’t find travel-friendly, natural body care products for her!
Green Babies products are available at many Whole Foods Markets and other specialty stores. Each product meets Whole Foods’ premium body care standards. Shop Green Babies, “like” Green Babies on Facebook and follow Green Babies on Twitter.
