By now we all know the impact that applying sunscreen on our children can have on protecting them from sunburns and skin cancer, but they can't all use the same products. Kids can have all sorts of skin sensitivities, from Summer rashes to eczema and allergies, and you need to shop accordingly.

To begin, you'll likely want to search for mineral-based sunscreens only (skip the chemical ones), and then pay close attention to the ingredient list. If you know what irritates them then you're ahead of the game. Otherwise, start by avoiding some of the big offenders. Tip: kids can have reactions to the ingredient octyl methoxycinnamate (OMC), which helps filter UVB rays from the sun, so try starting there.
