Whether you have a baby, or children, or not, you’ll want to know about BabyGanics. Their all-natural products for babies are also good for “babies” of any age. If your skin is sensitive, you want to treat it as carefully as a baby’s. Moreover, if you are an overburdened parent toting all the stuff that kids need for backyard, beach, and beyond, you’re probably searching for “family friendly” products that every member of the family can use.

Now that Summer is in full force, and people are traveling, visiting, and hanging out at home, sun protection is more important than ever. The items you choose to take in your tote, carry-on and purse, matter.
When it comes to sun protection, BabyGanics has an impressive collection of sun screens with high SPF from solid sticks to lip balms, pump bottles to tiny, travel-friendly tubes, and sprays. All of them offer broad spectrum sun protection including some as high as SPF 5o. The products also moisturize, they’re hypoallergenic, without PABA, parabens, sulfates, phthlates, non-particles, or retinyl palmitate, plus they have a mineral based formula.
In a nice twist, it was two dads that designed this line. Kevin & Keith, BabyGanics founding-fathers, call themselves: “compulsive, clean-freaks,” but also “family guys.” According to their press literature, they read other ‘green’ labels and didn’t like what they saw. They believed they should make products that are not just safe for the planet, but also for people of all ages. Baby Ganics doesn’t just have sun protection, there are cleansers, and all sorts of other things you might want that will be good for your baby, and for yourself.
This feaure is, however, about sun protection. What caught this columnist’s eye, initially, was that some of the products, such as Cover Up Kids Face & Body sun screen and Cover Up Baby Face & Body sun screen, are water resistant up to 80 minutes and are available in SPF 50+ and SPF 30. The SPF protection is high, but the prices are low, although the quality is impressive. A dozen, single-use tubes of the very nice, Cover Up Baby Face & Body Sun Screen comes nicely boxed for just $12.99. The tubes aren’t just travel-friendly, smaller than the size of a traditional lip balm, they let you know how much lotion you really should be applying to an average body for good coverage. A baby’s body might get two uses out of a tube, but an adult will need all of one tube. The thing is, with travel-friendly tubes like these, you have just lost your last reason why you can’t wear sun block all the time. For example, it’s a nice day and you want to eat your lunch in the park, but the sun is high, and hitting your bare arms and legs. If you have one of these tubes in your tote, you’ll get enough for a few hours worth of protection. No reason to carry around a bulky bottle (and potentially messy) of sun block if you’re just going out for an hour or two.
A lot of these BabyGanics products are just nicely packaged, perfect for travel. . One of my willing reviewers with extremely sensitive skin grabbed the Cover Up Baby Sun Screen Stick. She applied it before going outside on a very hot, sunny day, and hours later, realized that she wasn’t even “pink.” The SPF 50 actives are are 11.2% zinc oxide, 5% ocitisalate, and 7.5% oxtinoxate, and the SPF 30 lotion for children features 5% octinoxate, 3.5% octisalate, and 6.6% ZINC oxide. No smell, no greasy mess, no staining, well worth trying no matter what your age.
The BabyGanics Cover-Up Kisses Lip Balm Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 20 (UVA/UVB protection) is yet another that might be for babies and kids, but adults will want their own. These are available in orange cream or apple berry. The non greasy, non shiny balm has just a hint of scent to make it nicer for everyone. The balm is lightweight with no taste, and it feels moisturizing and pampering. You can even slick on your favorite lip color over it. The water resistant formula is supposed to last up to 80 minutes. In addition, this is also a mineral sunscreen formula without paba, sulfates, phthalates, nano particles, parabens, or retinyl palmitate. The actives are 10% zinc oxide and 1.25% titanium dioxide. Everyone in your family will want one!
