TruKid sunscreens are designed for kids, and tailored for the whole family. All natural, non-nano sunscreens that are eczema safe, SPF30+ strong, but gentle enough for the whole family to enjoy!
All natural sunscreens use titanium dioxide and zinc oxide particles to create a physical block. Physical sunscreens reflect the UVA and UVB rays away from your skin, acting like a reflective fabric to protect your skin. Chemical sunscreens need 20 minutes to interact with your skin and change the chemical process that occurs when the sun's rays hit your skin. Physical blocks work immediately, and prevent that chemical process from ever occurring!
Many sunscreens claim to be "natural" because they use a physical block as the active ingredient. But read those ingredient lists carefully! Many have PEG, salicylates, alumina, artificial fragrances and other chemicals that can irritate or inflame sensitive skin. TruKid is 100% all natural, and free of gluten, parabens, and phthalates.
Size matters! While nano-particles may pass through your skin and into your bloodstream, the zinc and titanium micron-sized particles (1000 x larger) in TruKid sunscreens sit on top of your skin, are safe sunscreen ingredients that are less likely to cause skin irritation, and act as a physical barrier to reflect off the harmful UV rays the minute that it is applied.
To ensure that you get the full SPF of a sunscreen, you need to apply 1 oz – about a tablespoon. Studies show that most people apply only half to a quarter of that amount, which means the actual SPF they have applied on their body is not enough to adequately protect their skin. "Water-, sweat-, or perspiration-resistant” is an accurate description, and means the sunscreen offers SPF protection after 40 minutes of water exposure. “Very water resistant” provides up to 80 minutes of protection. Sunscreen is only one piece of the puzzle. Other key factors include seeking shade between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM, covering up with clothing, wearing broad-brimmed hats and UV-blocking sunglasses, completing self-exams/exams on your children, and scheduling annual professional skin evaluations.

Before using any sunscreen, a patch test is a way to determine if a specific substance causes allergic inflammation of the skin. Apply a small amount of the TruKid Product to a clean, small patch of skin and cover it. Wait 24 hours to see if there is any reaction to any of the ingredients. If inflammation develops at the test site, discontinue use and contact a physician. Ask your doctor before putting products onto your body if you are pregnant or nursing.
