    Default Success! I found a sunscreen that doesn't leave white residue!

    Thanks to everyone who replied to my earlier thread. I bought the All Terrain Kidsport Natural 30spf SPRAY () and tried it on DDs today. It left no white residue at all! It was reasonably priced, scored a 3 from EWG with a "low" in health concerns, and was recommended on the safe mama blog that someone posted in the thread. The only drawback is I've never seen it in stores. But, winner, winner, we have a winner!!! I really appreciate all of your advice.

    ETA2: Thanks to Belleoftheballflagstaff for the orginal recommendation.

    I've never heard of this. Where did you get it? I need to know! Also, what are the ingredients?

    I had never heard of it either someone recommended it in my earlier post (I have to go back and see who it was). Here's the link to the EWG page

    The active ingredient is zinc oxide, it's a physical not chemical sunblock.

    These aren't the ingredients on the one I got. I think it was reformulated this year, there are no parabens. That was a big concern of mine. All of the ones safemama.com recommends are paraben free.

    Oh sorry, that was for the lotion, not the spray.

    Sorry, I should have posted this link in my initial post, I'll do that now. Although, yikes, it wasn't $20 when I bought it!

    ETA: I just checked, it was $11 + free shipping when I bought it!

    The one I ordered didn't have parabens or vitamin A (those are big no no's on my list).

    ZINC OXIDE 19% OTHER INGREDIENTS: ALOE VERA (ALOE BARBADENSIS) GEL, BLADDERWRACK (FUCUS VESICULOSUS) EXTRACT, CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDES, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL, CUCUMBER (CUCUMIS SATIVUS) EXTRACT, D-ALPHA TOCOPHEROL (VITAMIN E), GRAPEFRUIT (CITRUS GRANDIS) EXTRACT, JOJOBA OIL, MAGNESIUM ASCORBYL PHOSPHATE (VITAMIN C), SEA KELP (MACROCYSTIS PYRIFERA) EXTRACT, SUNFLOWER (HELIANTHUS ANNUUS) OIL
