  1. It might be worth adding a disclaimer at the top that you are talking to the US market here. The website you linked to with better alternatives also has this page:

    The chemicals you mentioned are not in any of the sunscreens I have on my shelf (and as a very pale skinned lady, I can burn whilst hanging out the washing on a hot day). So your readers over this side of the pond don’t need to worry!

  2. We’ve been using Badger brand sunscreen, which seems to be one of the better ones. So far we’ve loved it. We do limit our time outside anyways, wearing clothes that are light and cover us, when the sun is at it’s hottest.
