It's extremely important to protect our kids from sun exposure during the summer. Applying sunscreen, wearing protective clothing, and playing in the shade are all great strategies to help reduce the risk of sunburn for children playing outdoors. Yet it is not always easy to find a kid sunscreen that's both safe and effective. I'm so glad to be introduced to KINeSYS sunscreen , which includes a dedicated product line for kids and is good to use for the entire family.
KINeSYS sunscreens are unique in many aspects. They are the only sunscreens that are 100% carbon neutral (manufactured with clean and sustainable electricity generated by wind power), 100% cruelty free (not tested on animals and certified vegan), and 100% recyclable (packaged in BPA-free, fully recyclable bottles). While providing broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection, they are FREE from oil, alcohol, PABA and preservative. They are water and sweat-resistant. They are also hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic. With all these great features, KINeSYS products can be trusted to work for sensitive skin users.
KINeSYS has generously offered me the opportunity to sample their KIDS SPF 30 Sunscreen Spray and Girl SPF 30 Sunscreen Spray. The bright colored bottles immediately attracted my son's attention. The fun-shaped bottles are also very easy for the little hands to grip. It's in fact the first time I've ever tried any spray sunscreen. Every time I started to apply the conventional cream suncreen, my son tried very hard to push the tube away. Apparently, he doesn't like the greasiness. By contrast, he giggled when I sprayed KINeSYS KIDS on his arms and legs. He enjoyed this novel experience. The application was fast, easy, and effortless. I'm happy to learn that the non-aerosol sprayer used by KINeSYS is eco-friendly! I like that the kids sunscreen is fragrance-free, non-irritating, fast-drying, and leaves no residue on skin.
The GIRL spray is the latest addition to the kids product line. Packaged in a girly pink bottle, it's gently scented with vanilla green tea (What a sweet choice!). Like the other KINeSYS sunscreens, it has all the great features I have summarized earlier. But it's designed with the active female in mind :)
KINeSYS sunscreens are award-winning too. The KIDS spray I reviewed above recently won the iParenting Greatest Products of 2008 Award, the PTPA Green Award 2009, PTPA Award 2008, and the Mom's Best Award.
If you're looking for the best sunscreen for kids, don't miss out KINeSYS. You may start with a small bottle at $6.99 or go straight to the value bottle that provides over 700 sprays at only $18.99.
Many thanks to Extraordinary Mothers and KINeSYS for this great review opportunity!
