Babo Botanicals Introduces 1st Zinc-based Continuous Spray Sunscreen

Also Adds New Sport Stick and Lip Treatment to Family-friendly Line of Hair, Skin and Lip Products

Babo Botanicals, makers of natural, dairy-, soy- and gluten-free hair, skin and sun care products announced three innovative sunscreens.  With formulations based on non-nano zinc oxide, the new products offer the safest form of sunscreen for the entire family – from babies to adults with sensitive skin.

Zinc oxide is used in sunscreen formulas because of its unique effectiveness in blocking UVA, UVB and even UVC rays. But zinc can present health risks when the nano form is used, as nano particles are small enough to pass from skin into the bloodstream. By contrast, non-nano particles are too large to penetrate skin.  For this reason, Babo Botanicals developed the non-nano zinc sunscreens being announced today. These new sunscreen formulations ensure extraordinarily high levels of safety and sun-blocking effectiveness. In fact, Babo Botanicals innovative Safe Sun Care Collection is rated #1 in safety by The Environmental Working Group (EWG).

I’m most proud of these new zinc natural sunscreens because of how incredibly safe they are while still being effective on even the most sensitive and palest skin of adults and children. And the best part is that my kids love putting them on!” said Kate Solomon, Founder & CEO of Babo Botanicals.
