Having an organic and chemical free sunscreen on hand, even in the fall and winter is important if you enjoy the outdoors like we do.

UVA and UVB sunrays travel directly to the earth, regardless of the weather.  We absorb these rays, but our babies absorb them much faster because their skin is so thin and sensitive.  Things like sand and snow actually reflect these dangerous rays too.  Reflective rays are powerful, and snow can reflect dangerous sun rays up to 88%!

Protecting our babies from reflective rays is best done with a safe, chemical free sunscreen!

Q&A With Soleo USA

SafBaby Question:  What ingredients in your sunscreen are organic?

Soleo USA:  All of our “Inactive ingredients” (the cream) are organic.

SafBaby Question:  Your packaging states that your sunscreen is “hypo-allergenic”.  Can you define that term please.

Soleo USA:  Soleo is formulated for even the most sensitive skin, and is designed for even the most sensitive skin types.

SafBaby Question:  What is the particle size of the zinc you use?

Soleo USA:   We do use micro sized zinc oxide. While the specific sizes are proprietary, they are larger than 100 nanometers. That being said, one of the key reasons for ONLY using zinc oxide (in addition to being the most widely acclaimed, physical sunscreen), is that zinc is also an essential mineral that is typically deficient in most people’s diets.

We really like the way that this sunscreen feels on the skin.  Sometimes our eyes burn from other natural sunscreens, but not with Soleo USA!   With all these natural ingredients, simply massage your tube of sunscreen for a few moments to get all those organic ingredients creamed together!

Soleo USA is a SPF 30, blocking both UVA and UVB rays, and is water resistant.
