Carefully formulated with awesomely natural ingredients like olive oil and green tea extract and devoid of any chemicals or synthetics, Vivesana is like a fabulous body lotion that just so happens to be a 42 SPF sunscreen. It’s so gentle you can use it on little ones who aren’t technically supposed to be wearing sunscreen, which beats trying to wrestle with the stupid clip-on umbrella over the stroller every time you turn the corner and the sun direction shifts.
Vivesana is a bit more expensive than ordinary sunscreen, and because it’s thicker it takes a little longer to put on. But keep in mind that means you use half as much (if not less) than you might usually use.
I love how the company is truly dedicated to natural and eco-friendly practices – from the unique and recyclable aluminum packaging to the full disclosure of every single ingredient right on their website. Oh–and it really works. -Kristen
