Best sunscreen for infants?
Well, contrary to what many may believe, the USFDA and the American Academy of Pediatrics do not recommend using sunscreen on infants less than the age of 6 months old. That’s because infants are at greater risk than adults of sunscreen-related effects such as rash or dermatitis usually resulting from active ingredients used in the sunscreen. The key here is to understand that the skin of a baby is much more permeable. The other additives present in sunscreen that usually help to keep the formula stable can penetrate the thin epidermis and dermis of a baby.
