Alison has long been an advocate of the Environmental Working Group’s Cosmetic Database – a stellar resource for information on many bath and body products (they even have small companies like Lusa – which of course scored a “low hazard” across the board) that we discovered when searching for safe-for-kids sunscreen.

You might want to go take a look – even products boasting “natural” such as many of Aveeno’s “natural” line are rated “moderate – high hazard”.
