We use lavera

We use Sunsense Sensitive factor 50 on DS due to his allergies and severe eczema. We've been using it for a couple of summers now and so far find it really good, no reactions and good protection. However, in the past we've found that he suddenly reacts to suncreams that he's previously been fine with so I'm still holding my breath just in case he has a reaction to this one too. It's not cheap but if you shop around on the internet and buy in bulk you can get some discounts (we usually buy 3 at a time via an online pharmacy as it works out cheaper).

Hi All,

My DD has severe photosensitive sun lotion allergy and we have been through 8 different chemical lotions (low allergy, etc. etc.) but they have all failed. There are a few topics on sunscreens, but I wanted advice specifically on the mineral screens... they seem really hard to get hold of in the UK.

Does anyone have any experience of Invisible Zinc products or SunSense Sensitive in particular?

Or any other Mineral Sunscreen suggestions?

We are desperate... Thanks in advance.
