Sunscreen for adults & kids

So let’s start with the truth. The best form of sunscreen is clothing, but if that won’t work. One of the safest non-mineral sunscreen are these Alba Botanica versions which don’t contain oxybenzone, the biggest chemical offender; instead, they have 3 percent of avobenzone, which presents a low risk of toxicity, according to the Environmental Working Group.
More is not necessarily best. In fact, some experts say using super-high-SPF sunscreens could lead to more UV exposure — upping your risk for both burns and skin cancer. When used correctly, sunscreen with SPF values between 30 and 50 offers adequate sunburn protection, even for people most sensitive to sunburn.
