Default Favorite safe sunscreen?

We aren't sensitive to any ingredients, just trying to switch out the mainstream stuff we normally use. My kids have olive-ish skin and have never had a sunburn. We mainly use sunscreen for zoo/amusement parks/beach and not for everyday.

Anyone have a recommendation, especially available from Amazon?

We use Badger, too. It's VERY thick, though! Any safe sunscreen will be, though, since they are barriers instead of chemicals. I very occasionally put it on my light brown and medium brown skinned kids (for full days in the sun like you said), and it shows up very white on their skin. It doesn't show up so badly on my very light skinned kid. I found that the lavender scented goes on better than the unscented.

So babyganics has a non aerosol spray. Comes out white, rubs in easily. Didn't get a tan using it for a week in Vegas. Sat by pool all day.

Here's a review. Also Vegas.

Walgreen's , Target, and babies r us sell it.

I have liked Kiss My Face - comes in an orange tube. It rubs in better than some of the other natural/mineral kinds we've tried that are just awful.
