I used to buy California Baby, but I haven't in a long time and I don't know how the ingredients list looks. For years now I've just used rash guards and hats.

We use loving naturals. We also have badger, but i really don't like how thick it is and it's hard to rub in completely.

I've used California Baby and Purple Prairie Botanicals. CB would be my recommendation. It's hard to rub in but it doesn't wash off in the pool. Purple Prairie is great for a daily sun screen but not if you'll be in the water.

I think it's called blue lizard? I believe it only has the better kind of zinc in it and nothing else. It's the only one I use for my very fair skinned children
