Best baby sunscreen age:
Doctors recommend minimal sun exposure until at least 6 months of age, but if your baby will be exposed then the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends using an SPF product. Harsh chemical blocks should never be applied to a baby. Episencial Sunny Sunscreen SPF 35 is a doctor recommended natural baby sunscreen. The active ingredient minerals zinc and titanium sit on the skin’s surface and reflect sunrays like tin foil, making these natural minerals the best option for baby sunscreen safety. Chemical ingredients are absorbed into the skin and can have unintended and harmful consequences.
Best SPF baby sunscreen rating:
According to Episencial’s natural pediatric expert, sunscreen should be applied daily. "e;The best SPF for your baby’s sunscreen lotion is SPF35 if you are playing at the beach, park or in the back yard and is perfect for newborn skin. The best sunscreen SPF could be less if you will be mostly indoors."e; Alan Greene, MD
A great deal of UV exposure comes from reflected light off the ground and other objects, so a hat or canopy is not quite enough protection. Also keep in mind that dry or damaged skin, as you might see with eczema and chapped lips, should be regularly protected, even during the winter.
Sunny Sunscreen SPF 35 is part of an elite group awarded the EWG sunscreen ratings for effectiveness as well as a top safety rating for natural baby sunscreen.
Meaning of SPF:
SPF is an acronym for “Sun Protection Factor”. The SPF factor refers to how much longer it will take the skin to burn with a given SPF than it would take to burn with no protection. But since product wears off with sweat, water, drool, and when in contact with clothing, food, sand, dirt and so on, it needs to be reapplied every 2 hours anyway. An SPF of more than 35 adds close to zero protective value, and is usually chalky white, sticky, hard to apply and can be overly expensive.
