Protect Your Baby from Toxic Sunscreens

Sometimes, it can be difficult to protect our children from everything, but one way we can prevent some serious damage to their skin is with sunscreen. It is often recommended that you use other forms of protection before using sunscreen on babies under than six months, but small amounts can be beneficial. Though any run-of-the-mill sunscreen might seem to do the trick, Bourgeois Baby wants you to stop and consider some of the ingredients in these products, and how they can be bad for your little ones.

Many sunscreens on the market contain chemical filters, which is supposed to protect the skin from sunlight. There are plenty of bad elements to stay away from, and here’s a short list of chemicals you should avoid.



  • Parabens
  • Phthalates
  • Ozybenzone
  • Propylene Glycol
  • Phenoxyethanol

These items contain items like hormones, skin irritants, release free radicals in sunlight, and can be absorbed into the blood which can cause some serious side effects. We suggest searching for a mineral sunscreen that suits your needs with natural ingredients and elements like zinc or titanium.

Bourgeois Baby knows how important it is to give our kids the best and healthiest options for them. That’s why we make suggestions about sunscreens and create organic baby bibs that won’t irritate their skin. The backing is a velvet soft organic cotton and bamboo blend terry cloth that is manufactured especially for modern cloth diapers- they are built to be super soft and absorbent. Not only do we create product that gets the job done, it is made with the safest materials around.
