As we’re currently enjoying summer here in Australia I thought it would be pertinent to talk about sunscreen for sensitive and eczema prone skin.
Gracie’s eczema has virtually cleared, but she still has very sensitive skin and I’m extremely careful what I put on it and that includes sunscreen.
So I thought I would compile my top 3 that I have personally used and recommend.
We used this sunscreen when Gracie was much younger, they also do a ‘body’ one for older children/adults.
It does have a slightly thick consistency and does leave a slight white reflect.
Active ingredient: Zinc Oxide 20%. Inactive ingredients: Capric/Caprylic Triglyceride, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Silicon Dioxide, Cera Alba (Beeswax), Butyrospermum Parkii Seed (Shea) Butter, Euphorbia Antisyphilitica (Candelilla) Wax, Polyhydroxystearic Acid, Simmondsia Chinensia (Jojoba), Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Seed Extract, Persea Gratissima (Avocado), Rosa Canina (Rosehips) Seed Oil, Carota Sativa (Carrot) Oil, Botswellia Carterii (Frankincense)
Wotnot Sunscreen SPF 30+ $28.95
We love all the Wotnot products – especially their baby wipes! This is a great natural sunscreen however it does have a slightly thick consistency therefore you will need to rub it in quite well.
Grapeseed oil, safflower oil, sesame oil, candellila wax, beeswax, carnauba wax, shea butter, gmo-free vitamin e, purified water, certified organic aloe vera*, silica, naticide (all natural preservative). Active: zinc oxide. [*certified organic ingredients]
As well as making an awesome sunscreen, they also have a fab tanning and body care range. Again their sunscreen does come out a little thick and leave a white reflect, it also has a strong coconut smell.
