We recommend applying sunscreen liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure and allow it to absorb. Reapply at least every two hours and more frequently after swimming/sweating and towel drying. Our little ones are constantly running around in and out of the water so we put together a few steps to help make sure their covered head to toe.

Outside of Coconuts, Kukui Nuts, and Argan oil, which some consider to be tree nuts, we don’t put nuts in any of our Baby Bum or Sun Bum products. But we can’t guarantee zero traces as we don’t currently have a program in place to certify our manufacturing facilities as nut-free. For severe allergies, please consult your doctor before you try any of our stuff.
Mineral based sunscreens act as a physical blocker that sits on top of the skin and works to actively block UV rays. So, we feel good that our little ones' sensitive skin will stay protected while they're out playing in the sun.
