I just started using the Neutrogena UVA/UVB Sensitive Skin Sunblock Lotion, SPF 30. I called and they were very concerned and did a search for all warnings on there products and also any cross contamination with TNA/PA as my dd is both. I felt good about trying their product. DD has been using it everyday with no problems. It is PABA free, fragrance-free.
It is based on the original Titanium Dioxide that the life gaurds were on their noses, so it does leave a little white tint to the skin, if you don't mind that then it is great.

We use Ocean Potion - it works great. What you want to look for is the least amount of ingredients and something with Zinc and Titanium Dioxide. Avoid the Paba, TEA, DEA, Fragrances, and Dyes ect....

We use Vanicream (FAAN recommends this one, I believe) on both our PA & MFA DDs. Anyone have a safe bug repellant they use? Worried with the West Nile virus.
