This rich, water-resistant cream ensures double skin protection from the sun. Reflective mineral filters (titanium dioxide-iron and zinc oxide) ensure optimal surface protection from an extra-broad spectrum (infrared/long and short as well as UVA/UVB rays), while a unique combination of zinc salts and natural plant ingredients (Aloe Vera and Soy Phytosterols containing Vitamin E) provides skin protection at the cellular level. Photostable, so there is no loss of potency in the sun. Developed in conjunction with pediatricians and dermatologists to be alcohol-free, hypoallergenic and non-toxic.
Why do we love Mustela products? Because they work. Sure, they feel great and they smell wonderful, but once you've used their wipes, their diaper cream, their soap or any of their extraordinary products, there's just no going back.
Created in France in 1950, the Mustela line is a part of Expanscience Laboratories and is overseen by dermatologists and pediatricians. Their hypoallergenic products are made with natural ingredients, contain no artificial coloring, and are non-irritating. Baby products can often have overpowering perfumes, but Mustela’s signature scent is light and floral. Baby will smell fresh, not fragranced.
Mustela has four distinct product lines: Mustela Bebe addresses the skin needs of newborns, babies, and young children, Mustela Sun Protection provides safe and natural protection from UVA/UVB rays, Mustela Dermo-Pediatrics targets specific skin disorders (eczema, cradle cap, and severe diaper rash), and Mustela 9 Months gives mothers a line of products to use during pregnancy and post-partum.
Sturdy Construction, Works Great, Portable
Complicated Use, Difficult To Clean
I love Mustela. I use their products every day. So when I needed to buy sunblock, I knew I wanted to try theirs first.
I've been using this product on my 9m.o. daughter, and it has done a great job of protecting her from the harmful sun rays. We were at the pool for a few hours one day, and I was sure her skin would be at least a little affected afterwards, but she didn't seem to be affected by the sun at all!
One huge drawback, though, is that the sunblock is extremely hard to put on. It's pretty greasy and makes the baby's skin look like she has white foundation on. With a squirmy infant, having a product that's easy to put on is crucial and my favorite brand disappoints.
