Does anyone know of a safe Suntan lotion for an infant/almost toddler? I bought Hawaiin Tropic's "Baby Faces" Sunblock b/c it only lists: Homosalate, Octisalate, Oxybenzone, Avobenzone and Octocrylene. Any advice?

Ombrelle is safe and the store brand at Rite Aid/Savon Drug Store. As far as I know Hawaiian Tropics has cross contamination. You could call again and ask though. That was last summer.

Yeah after I read the bottle ABOVE the ingredients, the bottle was proudly marked with "nut extracts" - I returned it the next day - will try the Rite Aid brand. I am so stressed!

We use Vanicream on both our PA daughters. We bought it online.

That Baby Faces is only listing the active ingredients, which all appear to be chemical sunscreens.
Physical sunblocks (minerals) actually block more UVA and UVB. They tend to be thicker, however, and need to be reapplied more often when swimming, etc. Since I'm allergic or sensitive to all the chemical sunscreens, I only use physical blocks. I'm also allergic to aloe vera, lanolin, soy, and lots of other common ingredients in skincare products. The sunblock I use most often is Vanicream SPF15. It's been safe for me, though it has the potential to clog pores.

Ocean Potion is the name of the Sunscreen that my DD PA/TNA uses never had a problem. Got it at Longs Drug Store. But it has been at Savon Drugs and Rite Aid.
