When prepping for a day at the pool, beach or another outdoor activity, it’s important to remember to pack the essentials. Aside from the obvious essentials for the family like snacks and swimsuits, proper sun protection is a must. If you are packing on the lighter side, you may want to consider smaller sizes of sunscreens. While it’s easy to head down to your local store to shop the travel toiletries aisle, you may have a hard time finding safe and effective skin protection for the whole family. Instead, we suggest you head over to the baby/kids aisle and look for these California Baby sunscreens.

California Baby sun care products are all natural and mineral-based. Unlike chemical sun filtering agents, California Baby’s sunscreen products sit on top of the skin, scattering and reflecting dangerous UV rays, which means no harsh chemicals enter your skin and cause harm to your body. With products ranging from everyday year-round sunscreen to super sensitive sunscreen, there’s a product to protect everyone’s type of skin. And, not only are they perfect for babies, but they can be used on adults too, ensuring your skin is just as protected!
We’re loving the California Baby Everyday/Year Round Broad Spectrum SPF 30+ Sunscreen Stick ($14.99). Pop this convenient PABA free, lightly scented, mineral-based sunscreen stick into your pocket, purse or diaper bag. The whole family will love this easy-to-use stick that gives those “hot spots” a boost of extra protection. This mineral-based sunscreen stick offers a highly micronized, non-whitening titanium dioxide that scatters and reflects dangerous UV rays, offering UVA-UVB broad-spectrum protection. This product goes on smoothly, is non-staining and non greasy.
All of the California Baby sunscreens are great for the entire family. Moms, apply these sunscreens under makeup for a non-greasy sun protection that lasts. Also, remember to apply sunscreen often especially if you are swimming or perspiring.
If you prefer a product with no scent at all, check out the California Baby Board Spectrum SPF 30+ Super Sensitive (unscented) Stick ($14.99). This product works just like the scented version, without the light scent.
Tip: Apply the California Baby Sunscreen Sticks in lines and blend with your hands for even coverage.
