Quick Overview

We are always looking for safe, chemical-free sunscreen that parents can feel good about putting on their babies and kids (and themselves). We do extensive research to find the best and safest, as most sunscreens that are readily available contain a wide range of toxins that are simply not good for your children (or you!).

Matter Company's Sun Care Creme for babies and children is our latest find. This excellent Canadian made Sunscreen uses micronized zinc dioxide (a physical, not a chemical barrier) to safely block harmful UVA and UVB rays. In combination with the natural oils of Shea Butter, Sesame Seed and jojoba as well as calendula, grapeseed and green tea extract, the sun care creme helps to moisturize and soothe tender skin.

Sunscreen is not recommended for babies under six months, but sometimes it is necessary. If you need to use sunscreen, definitely choose one that uses a physical, rather than chemical barrier (such as Matter).

Sunscreen products are typically recommended only for babies over six months because an infant's skin is still very thin and sensitive. It is strongly recommended that very young babies be kept out of intense, direct sun, or be protected with physical barriers such as sunsuits, hats, sunsocks etc. Realistically though, it is sometimes necessary to use a sunscreen for younger babies if areas of their body are going to be exposed to the sun. The majority of sunscreens contain ingredients that are not safe for babies, even if they are "organic" or "natural".

We at Mountain Baby have done extensive research on sunscreens and have chosen one of the very safest available. Matter Company Baby Sun Care Creme/SPF30 is specifically formulated to be as safe for babies as possible. This Canadian made sunblock prides itself on the purity and safety of it's ingredients. Here is some info from the company:

The Ingredients are the Product:
Active Ingredient:  Zinc Oxide 20% which is a Sun block, protects against UVA/UVB rays; i is water resistant; anti-inflammatory; anti-bacterial

Inactive Ingredients: Soyabean oil, calendula flowers, St. john's wort flowers, jojoba oil, sesame seed oil, green tea extract, grapeseed extract, glycerine, shea butter, vitamin E acetate, xanthan gum, phenoxyethanol, capryl glycol, sorbic acid, deionized water, essential oils of lavender, orange, geranium, palmarosa and mint.
Shea Butter is moisturizing; reparative; a water barrier; and offers natural sun protection. Calendula is anti-inflammatory; healing;  and anti-bacterial. Grape Seed Extract - is an anti-oxidant;  is healing; and a natural anti-inflammatory. Green Tea Extract - Anti-oxidant

Matter Baby Sun Care Cream is the equivalent to an SPF 30 and is safe for infants 3 months and up.  It foes on smoothly and easily. It is always recommended to do a patch test before using in case your baby has sensitivities to any f the ingreadients. Apply the suncream liberally on exposed skin. Mineral sunscreens will often leave a white residue. This white residue is the active zinc oxide, which acts as a reflector to the sun's rays. To reduce the whitening effect, rub in until the whiteness dissipates.

At Mountain Baby we never recommend a product that we do not feel really good about in terms of health, safety, developmental appropriateness, etc. We feel good about Matter Baby Sun Care Creme and many of us use it for ourselves and our families.
