When Mum and Dad investigate the search for the best baby sunscreen, there’s no shortage of choices between cheap brands, dermo-cosmetic products and organic sunscreens. To help you with this difficult task, we have listed here, based on experiences and opinions of parents who use sunscreen, the top of the top of this essential accessory on the road to a holiday in the sun.
There is no pre-established definition for what a dermo-cosmetic is. However, we can identify it as a cosmetic product combining efficiency and superior quality that is generally recommended by a pharmacist. This is how we care every day for our skin with a cream brand by Nuxe, Vichy or Clarins.
No. Nothing certifies that the ingredients that make up the formulas of dermo-cosmetic products are of natural origin or from organic farming. Moreover, as far as sun protection is concerned, dermo-cosmetic products generally consist of synthetic filters derived from petrochemicals while the formulas of organic sunscreens essentially consist of mineral filters.
Like other organic items, sun creams with 100% natural ingredients are decorated with Ecocert and / or Cosmebio logo. If you visualize at least one of these two labels on the packaging of the selected product, it means that its ingredients come from renewable resources and are therefore respectful of the environmental standards in force.
No. Whether your child is 5 months, 9 months or 1 year old, all sun creams will protect them in the same way (although some brands mention a minimum age of 3 months).
Parents love its resistance to water.
Labelled Ecocert and not tested on animals, Alphanova milk is the perfect solar product for parents concerned about the environment and the well-being of their child. This milk, enriched with Tamanu oil, is ideal for fighting against baby eczema.
Parents love its non-sticky waterproof texture.
Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic, this soothing and hydrating solar milk, enriched with Avene Thermal Water, is perfect for babies with clear and hypersensitive skin.
Parents love its speedy application.
Certified organic by the Ecocert label, the Biosolis solar milk is essentially composed of Karanja oil and aloe vera, known for their generative and moisturizing properties.
Parents have complained about the rigidity of the tube, which complicates the extraction of the milk.
Naïf sunscreen is made of 98% natural ingredients. Its hybrid formula (physical and mineral filters) based on shea butter and zinc oxide effectively protects baby’s fragile skin from the sun’s rays. This product was born of the association of two Dutch dads who wanted to create a range of high-quality cosmetics entirely dedicated to the care of toddlers. An asset that has immediately attracted the collection of luxury hotels for families Little Guest, which distributes the Naïf sunscreen for free in all the partner hotels.
Parents love the fresh and colourful packaging.
