Badger ‘Em Up in the Sun!
March 3, 2011
When it comes to your children’s skin, it’s important to use only the most natural and safe products on them. One of my favourite brands that I use on my kids is the Badger line of suncare products. They are safely made up of all Certified Organic ingredients like Zinc Oxide, exotic butters, herbal extracts & pure essential oils. No chemicals, synthetics, parabens, GMOs or any of the other dubious stuff you don’t want to put on your kids skin.
Badger sunscreens use uncoated, non-nano Zinc Oxide as its active sunscreen agent. Zinc oxide is a mineral that provides broad-spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays. It works by sitting on top of your skin, acting as a protective barrier that blocks the sun’s damaging rays before they reach your skin. It is also said to have anti-inflammatory properties and is considered the safest and most protective active sunscreen ingredient.
The sunscreen products are also water resistant, which is important when on swimming holidays with your kids. The reason they are water resistant is that they have an oil and wax balm base (no water) and you can tell by the thick consistency when applying the cream that they are coating your kids skin well. Each sunscreen has been tested to retain its original SPF on human skin after 40 minutes of exposure to vigorous warm water.
Lastly, Badger creams are safe for the environment (nothing to harm sealife or coral formations), and all products are cruelty free. They comply with the “Leaping Bunny Standard” ensuring that none of their products or ingredients are ever tested on animals. You can see the Leaping Bunny Logo on all products. Give them a try and let us know what you think!
