Organic Children Sun Lotion - Review

I wouldn't say that C has particularly sensitive skin, but a few months ago we picked up a chemists' own brand sun cream which broke C's skin out in a rash. We had originally been using a well-known brand and had no problems whatsoever.

With the summer arriving and weather getting hotter, Green People sent us some of their Organic Children 25SPF sun lotion to try out. Because of our past experience with C's rash, I did worry that maybe this lotion would contain something that would react with him in the same way.

The Organic Babies & Children range is made without harsh or irritating chemicals. I was really surprised to hear about some of the stuff that was in well-known baby products, such as SLS (sodium lauryl sulphate) which is also used car soaps and engine degreasers. This is usually added to create bubbles to your baby's bath! Organic Babies have used natural corn starch and coconut foaming agents to get that same bubbliness!

Anyway, I digress. We were sent a 150ml tube of the 25SPF medium sun lotion to try out with C and we have had no problems with rashes at all (and sunburn for that matter!). The lotion is scent/fragrance free so that is definitely a plus. I do hate the chemically smell of most sun creams and it contains 81% of certified organic ingredients such as aloe vera, edelweiss, avocado and chamomile.

Chris did get a bit iffy that it was only 25SPF. I think he'd slather C in factor 100 if he could but it did give him 100% protection from the sun. It applies really easily and I did find that it was less greasy than the sun creams that I have used in the past.

This sun lotion retails at £16.95 for 150ml which may seem a bit pricey but I like the guarantee that you're not using harsh chemicals on your child's skin.
