non staining but effective SPF cream

Postby gainsboroughgirl on Thu May 11, 2017 12:07 pm

It sounds like a laundry question but bear with me. In my attempts to care for my kids in the sun, I have used SPF 50 from a well known brand (not sure if allowed to say names) beginning with N anyway. Do you know of one that is effective but doesn't leave yellow stains on clothing? I researched this and have forgotten the chemical names but some have a product in that causes the stains and some don't. I don't want to choose between safety in the sun and ruined clothes..

It's often avobenzones that stain clothes. I don't think we can mention brands here but if you search on line you should be able to find a few avobezone-free sun screens
