Sunscreen...and the Honest Truth

As a board member of the Prevent Cancer Foundation I have always taken sun safety extremely seriously - through PSA's I've hosted, research, and spreading the word whether at a baseball game or on the playground. As a mom, the importance of applying sunscreen properly- and using a sunscreen with the best ingredients- has grown exponentially in our daily ritual.

I was extremely disappointed - yet I must admit not completely surprised - to read about Jessica Alba's Honest Company Sunscreen on E!Online not meeting parental standards. I was shocked to hear that the active zinc ingredients had been diluted and proven ineffective- leading to sunburned skin on kiddos across the country. My personal recommendation? Mustela brand. We keep the sticks everywhere - in my purse, the baby bag, strollers, car, etc. for easy access. Non-greasy and easy to apply - we have been very pleased this past year using it on both mom and baby.
