I need help with this one to.. In Florida I tried putting it on her so she wouldn't be able to rub it in her eyes but it still found its way there... Poor little Girl had burning eyes, and that's using water babies... Anyone know of lotion that won't burn?

We're using California Baby and really like it. I've heard Badger is great, too. They are both kinda pricy but they're so small a little goes a long way.

Researching these sunscreens is giving me a headache. Supposedly, even some of the "natural" ones have "nano-particles" that can get in your cells and cause damage. So you have to look for ones that so no nano-particles.

Honestly, I cannot overanalyze everything. I look for the big things my pedi mentioned to look for and then just go with it.

Yeah, it's something about the one mineral ingredient being broken down into such small particles that it is absorbed into the cells and it's toxic at that level. So no better than the regular sunscreens. I've pretty much decided to try the Badger brand. Seems to be the most recommended one.
