Babo Botanicals, a favorite on our annual list of the 10 Best Sunscreens, has released three innovative new sunscreens just in time for summer: Sheer Zinc SPF 30 Continuous Spray Sunscreen, The Sport Stick, Nutri-Soothe SPF 15 Lip Treatment.
The new sunscreen formulations ensure extraordinarily highly levels of safety and sun-blocking effectiveness. Babo Botanicals Safe Sun Care Collection is rated #1 in safety bu The Environmental Working Group (EWG).
With formulations based on non-nano zinc oxide, each offers the safest form of sunscreen for the entire family- even those with sensitive skin. Zinc oxide is used in sunscreen formulas because of its effectiveness in blocking UVA, UVB, and even UVC rays. But zinc can present health risks when the nano form is used , as nano particles are small enough to pass from the skin into the bloodstream. In contrast, non-nano particles are too large to penetrate the skin.
From a user standpoint, I love the Babo Botanicals spray because it's lightweight, not greasy, and rubs in nicely. The spray makes it easier for me apply despite constantly flailing limbs and little boys who don't want to wait for sunscreen before jumping in the pool! The Sport Stick is great for face and makes it easy to reapply on the go. Lip protection is a must and I have the coconut apple-scented Lip Treatment stashed all over the place.
