Eco-Friendly Sunscreen for Babies & Kids
Keeping our family safe is the main priority of any holiday in a foreign country. Of course, we want to protect our little ones from damaging UV rays but not at the expense of the gorgeous tropical reefs and marine life that we so eagerly want to see on holiday. Fortunately, there is a simple solution: environmentally-friendly sunscreen for kids and babies. We’ve put together this list of sunscreen that meets four main criteria:
- Sunscreen that doesn’t damage coral reefs
- Sunscreen that is better for your skin than other mainstream sunscreens
- Sunscreen that is biodegradable
- Sunscreen that is suitable for babies and children.
Take a look at our list of child-friendly natural and environmentally-friendly sunscreens below! Plus, pick up some more health tips from our How to Stay Safe in Fiji, as well as our advice on What Medication to Pack in Your First Aid Kit for Fiji.
