With summer upon us we decided to delve into the realm of sunscreen, hoping to find one that isn’t loaded in chemicals and actually works. Our search lead us to this All Good Baby and Kids Mineral Sunscreen Butter Stick. The ingredients were an immediate attention grabber for us and we were curious to see the results.
All Good Baby & Kids Sunscreen Overview
For around $15 you get a 2.75 oz “butter stick”, which as stated in the product description, doesn’t mean a literal stick of butter (although it glides on like one!) The ingredients consist of two categories, active and inactive. The only active ingredient is apparently “Zinc Oxide 25% (Non-nanoparticle)” and the inactive ingredients are said to be “Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Organic Cera Alba (Beeswax), Organic Calendula Of cinalis (Calendula) Flowers infused in Organic Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Non-GMO Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Matricaria Recutita (Chamomile)”. The chamomile being the component for sensitive skin.
This All Good Baby and Kids Mineral Sunscreen Butter Stick is SPF 50, which is kind of hard to find with these ingredients, since most are around SPF 30. The product claims to be safe for face, nose, ears along with the rest of the body. Plus adults can use it too even though there is another version for them without the chamomile.
All Good says their product is “Coral Reef friendly and water resistant”. Also claiming it has no “chemical UV absorbers, parabens or harmful additives”.
Mineral sunscreen is supposed to stay on top of your skin instead of being absorbed into your bloodstream, giving you better protection against the sun along with avoiding any chemicals entering your body.
Conclusion of All Good Sunscreen
After some testing we are pretty happy overall with this product. It glides on smooth and fairly thick, but can be rubbed in to be made clear, although some may prefer to leave it white to see where it’s been applied and how long it lasts. All Good claims it should be water resistant up to 80 minutes, and it does seem to do well when wet. There is no strong odor coming from it and it simply feels like a thick lotion being applied to your skin.
We’ve since ordered the All Good Sport Sunscreen Butter Stick SPF 50 as well to test that one out next. It seems to have very little difference from the ingredients in the kid version, but time will tell which stick pulls ahead as our favorite. You can purchase the All Good sunscreen on Amazon.
