Sensitive skin needs gentle ingredients

With a thinner skin and a developing natural protection system, a baby’s skin needs special protection from the sun and irritating chemicals. That’s why you need a sunscreen with gentle, yet effective ingredients.

That’s why Neutrogena® created Pure & Free® Baby sunscreen. It provides superior broad spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection that is gentle on baby’s delicate skin.

Dermatologists often recommend 100% mineral sunscreen for babies. Mineral sunscreens are known to be gentle on the most sensitive skin. They form a protective screen on top of baby’s delicate skin to absorb and scatter harmful UVA/UVB rays before they even have a chance to touch your baby.

This dermatologist recommended mineral ingredient is ideal because it provides superior broad spectrum sun protection, especially from deep penetrating UVA rays.

Neutrogena® Pure & Free® Baby Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 50

Unlike the leading baby sunscreen, it provides naturally-sourced 100% mineral sun protection without irritating chemicals, fragrance, parabens, phthalates, PABA, and dyes. It’s clinically shown to be safe on delicate skin, and it won’t run or sting eyes.
