What a wonderful giveaway! One thing that I'd like to see more of (in general, not necessarily on your website since it is focused on kids) is a 'natural' moisturizer. There are lots of moisturizers with SPF at the drugstores but they are typically from the 'big' companies which may test on animals and use chemical sunscreen ingredients. It's pretty hard to find a good, eco-friendly moisturizer for daily use!

We agree, it IS hard to find a good natural moisturizer for the wee ones. We're going to look into this so 'watch this space'. Thanks Nina!

Sunscreen is a summertime essential around our house. With the sun reflecting off the water don't forget to do under your chin and make sure you rub it in well on your face so it doesn't migrate into your eyes :)

It would be great to win this to try it out for the heat of the summer.

I'm always on the lookout for skin care products that I can trust (i.e. that are organic and healthy for me and my family). Thanks for letting us know about Soleo... I'd love to win this prize!

We just got our tube on the weekend, tried it on the kids and they loved it. They used to hate putting sunscreen on because it stings their eyes...now I get no complains and I know it is good for them!!!! We love the sunscreen!!

It's nice to see more options becoming available for nontoxic sunscreen.

It's so hard to find Soleo Organics Sunscreen, it's wonderful that you have it available!

Rosalia said...

I heard about this product on CityLine! I think I will give it a try!

I would love to try this sunscreen. Just bought a tube of a popular kids' brand because it was on sale, and both my kids ended up with rashes on their faces!

I am truly in need of a remarkable sunscreen, as I am not currently using anything at the moment. I have tried others and the chemicals give me a headache; so I end up washing it off right away. I recently tried suncreen by Badger and it was okay, but it ended up becoming streaky when applied to my face. White blotches everywhere!

I like that it is natural. Very important on a 22 month old! We would love to give it a try. I stay away from the 'big name' brands but the natural ones are hard to find.

Soleo has 'patented nanofine zinc technology' which means it doesn't leave your skin with white streaks. And in terms of consistency, here's a recent comment we received from the publisher of Westcoast Families magazine: 'One thing I’ve noticed is how well it applies. I’ve used other “natural” sunscreens for the baby and they’ve been really difficult to spread around. Soleo is a really great consistency.' There you go!

I have been searching high and low for a great daily moisturizer that has a natural sunscreen in it. I did a lot of research on the EWG site and looked at all sorts of sunscreens. The soleo is definitely one of the best and for safety too. Oprah uses it and loves it too!

the people who suffered a major sunburn incident in their childhood are at double the risk of developing a melanoma later in life..so protecting children from too much sun is something parents and carers should pay more attention to.
