Updated 2014 Sunscreen Guide – Safer sunblock for your child

http://www.ewg.org/2014sunscreen/ Use this link to evaluate the safety of the ingredients for various sunscreens.  Keep in mind that they are rated based on the safety of their ingredients, not by how well they work or how convenient they might be to apply.  I’d recommend checking them out on a vendor site and reading buyers’ comments first.  As always, just because it’s safer or more natural, doesn’t mean your child won’t get a rash from it.  Be sure to test on a leg first and leave it on for a couple of hours, looking for a rash before applying to the whole body.  Don’t forget that shade is the safest sunscreen, and to bring your hats and sunglasses.  Don’t forget to protect the ears, lips, and nose!  Be safe in the sun!
