In moderation, the sun gives children a feeling of well-being and stimulates vital life processes. Sunlight strengthens the immune system, activates the metabolism, and promotes the production of Vitamin D, which is vital for healthy bone development. It is extremely important, however, to protect young children's thin, sensitive, skin from the damaging effects of the sun's rays.
Weleda's biodynamic, chemical-free, and water-resistant sunscreen reflects both UVA and UVB rays with an SPF of 18. Unlike conventional chemical sunscreens, which need to be applied 30 minutes before sun exposure to work, Weleda's natural mineral-based formulation offers protection immediately on application.
Both children and adults can use this gentle, non-toxic formulation to protect their skin. Before going out in the sun, apply this sunscreen to both the face and entire body (UV rays can pass through clothing). Reapply as necessary during prolonged sun exposure and after swimming.
Made in Switzerland
Ages: 6+ months
This product is one of our very favorite Weleda products. While getting outside every day is an important part of a child's routine, too much sun can be harmful. Weleda's mineral-based sunscreen provides strong, non-toxic protection that starts working right away.
We suggest you get at least one tube, and you may want more depending on how many people will use it and how often you go outside. Keep it in your diaper bag, near the front door, and always take it with you to the beach!

Weleda was founded in 1921, making it one of the oldest companies to follow biodynamic and organic cultivation.
At the heart of Weleda is anthroposophy, a Greek word meaning "human wisdom", that stems from the teachings of philosopher Dr. Rudolph Steiner, who also developed biodynamic agriculture and the Waldorf education system. This philosophical movement encourages the individual to view the importance of his or her life in conjunction with the entire universe. The forces of our body, soul, and spirit are intrinsically connected, and they are closely related to the processes that occur in nature.
In accordance with anthroposophy, Weleda keeps all ingredients as close to their natural state as possible. Weleda's products are biodynamic--a step beyond organic--using special cultivation techniques to create a connection the earth's rhythms. These techniques include homeopathic preparations and herbally infused compost preparations to support the soil and enhance the cultivation of Weleda's delicate ingredients. Through biodynamic practices, Weleda's products carry harmony, healing, life force, and the rhythm of all parts of the universe to you and your child.
