KINeSYS is different. I used the Kids KINeSYS Sunscreen on my two-year old daughter. The directions say it will dry within 2-3 minutes after spraying it on but I found that my daughters skin was dry almost immediately. Her skin was not greasy at all. You wouldn't be able to tell I had even put sunscreen on since no residue was left behind. To put it on her face, I just sprayed my hands well and rubbed it on her little face. I also put it on her scalp since keeping a hat on her is impossible.
I worried that the SPF 30 would not be enough protection but after being in the sun for over an hour my skin and my daughter's was well protected and neither of us had any sunburn at all. Even better, I love that there was no fragrance to the sunscreen and it was oil-free, alcohol-free, paraben-free, and preservative-free. The sunscreen is sweat and water-resistant which is good for a moms piece of mind, whether you have active toddlers or teens.
KINeSYS has been featured in O, Real Simple, Newsweek and other publications. They also have made a commitment being an eco-friendly company. All bottles are 100% recyclable. The sunscreens have non-aerosol pharmaceutical-grade sprayers that do not have a negative impact on the environment. They also purchase electricity generated by wind power to offset the other electricity used by their manufacturing and offices. Click here to read more about KINeSYS commitment to the environment.
According to the KINeSYS website, 1 in 5 Americans may develop skin cancer in their lifetime which is an alarming statistic. My mom and grandfather have both had skin cancer so I know the importance of applying sunscreen when outside. Sunscreen is one of the things I always have in my diaper bag and purse regardless of the season.
This mom is definitely giving KINeSYS sunscreen two thumbs up. Easy application, suitable for all members of the family, gentle on our skin, and giving us all the protection that we need helps put my mind at ease during the spring and summer months as my family ventures outdoors more. I also respect KINeSYS for respecting our environment. Who could ask for more out of their sunscreen?
