Sunscreen for Toddler with Eczema
Does anyone have any suggestions for a good sunscreen for my toddler who has mild eczema? I tried aveeno baby last summer but that seemed to irritate it even more. Looking to try something new that will be gentler on sensitive skin.

I have a 16 mo daughter who also has eczema, the only one I find that works is Baby Lizard which is fromt he Australian company Blue Lizard. You can find it in CVS and Whole Foods. Hope this helps you.

A friend of mine tried every lotion out there for her toddler and has had great success with Baby Magic. It's the only thing that doens't bother her son's eczema. She's also heard good things about California Baby, but has never tried it.

I shop for safer products for my home through a company called Melaleuca. This past year, I have used there mineral sunscreen for my family & have been very happy with the results. My sister's 3 children all have eczema & have had no problems with it either! They also have wonderful products for those with dry skin & eczema that may help as well! Go to saferformyhome.com or contact me & I'll help you get these great products! Hope this helps! S.

Arbonne has a spf 30 sunscreen made for babies and can be used by adults with sensitive skin.All of Arbonnes products work so well that I have seen over and over parents that switch to the baby care no longer deal with eczema! They have a 45 day guarantee as well,so what do you have to lose, but some skin ailments. No nuts in it and it is made with plants.:) I am listed under mom owned businesses and give 20% off the first order for anyone on mamasource. check it out (it doesn't have any chemicals in it either). Feel free to call for more information. 1-###-###-#### or check my website www.seethedifference.myarbonne.com & I can send you a free sample of the baby care product line. I look forward to hearing from you. L.

Have you tried California Baby? They have sunscreen for babies and todlers with sensitive skin. Target sells the brand, but not all products. You can also buy it online at californiababy.com. It's what I use for myself and for my toddler!

I am an independent consultant for Arbonne International and have a sample of our entire baby line including the baby sunscreen that I would be happy to mail out to you to try. Arbonne prides itself on being a botanical product based company that does not use any fragrances, artificial colors, or animal by product. Lots of my clients have had success with this product. Our baby line also does not have any nuts in their ingredients. Let me know your address if you would like to try a sample!

there is this australian sunscreen you can get at sporting goods stores or online called Blue Lizard. they have different strengths and they make an all natural version for sensitive skin. I have used tons of differnt kinds of sunscreen because my son is borderline albino nad lots of sunscreen doesn't protect him well enough. Also dark chocolate is a natural skin healer. It has a natural spf and it has been known to calm or heal some skin irritations.

It is a direct selling company so, you need to order it through a consultant. I'd be more than happy to help. I am a consultant and a Mom who uses the entire babycare line on my 2 year old. You can reach me through email at ____@____.com care,

Try JASON SUNBRELLA for kids. It's all natural and can be found at your local health food store. Try not to overapply, the sun is good for us as long as we don't overdo it, that's how we get our vitamin D. I don't use sunscreen unless we are going to be in full sun for over 20 minutes...and my daughter never burns! She has sensitive skin too.
