If you haven’t already read the recent report from the FDA regarding the removal of antibacterials from hand soaps, or safer alternatives, then keep reading!
The FDA has made another move in the right direction with their recent declaration regarding the safety of antibacterials. “Companies will no longer be able to market antibacterial washes with these ingredients because manufacturers did not demonstrate that the ingredients are both safe for long-term daily use and more effective than plain soap and water in preventing illness and the spread of certain infections,” said the FDA.
As some of you may have heard, we have some BIG news here at Beautycounter! We just launched the Protect Body Sun Stick Sunscreen with SPF 30. It’s a new jumbo size that kids love, and so will you.
Why is this my new favorite you ask?—it’s like a spray (easy to apply), but in the form of a stick for your body. I love it because I can use it on the kids (they enjoy applying it onto themselves). The sunscreen stick is great for camp, travel, beach, pool, and everywhere else you use sunscreen. So make sure to replace your aerosol sun spray with this fabulous new product! Spray sunscreens are dangerous, especially for kids because they are more likely than adults to breathe in the chemical toxins being sprayed out of the can, which can cause damage to their lungs. It is also easy to apply in the car. I know that sounds funny but its true. On the way to camp today, my 4 year old covered his whole body with sunscreen without getting messy cream all over the car and his hands. He was so proud, and mom was too!
