Unfortunately, we couldn’t find our go-to kid-safe sunblock here when we prepared for our recent beach trip. So we scoured the internet for affordable, safe sunscreen for our little boy and the clear winner was Kindee Organic sunscreen lotion.
I remember visiting their booth in one of the Mommy Mundo Expos back in the Philippines. What first caught my eye was their cute packaging–I know, that’s a minor thing a mom would consider when buying a baby product, but admittedly, we’re suckers for good ones.
I never thought I’d try it a couple of years later, in a different country. We browsed their shop and learned that their products are organic, natural, and certified hypoallergenic. To make the most of the shipping fee, we allowed ourselves to try their other products.
Here’s what we think:
Kindee Sunscreen Lotion
-For face and body
-SPF 40 PA+++
It was easy to spread and comes with Aloe Vera to moisturize the skin while protecting it. We would have liked it to have a higher SPF level and be less sticky, but hey, it does the job!
Kindee Organic Mosquito Lotion
-With Lavender and Eucalyptus essential oil
-Repels mosquitos for up to 3 hours
-For newborn babies and up
We were not into essential oils back when our son was an infant, and I couldn’t find an insect repellent for him because what was available in the market were usually for kids two years old and up. If you live in a tropical country, you know how pesky mosquitoes are and their threat of bringing Dengue fever.
Kindee’s Organic Mosquito Lotion is a nice-smelling, infant-safe formula that keeps these annoying bugs at bay. I have to stress “nice-smelling” because, in my experience with natural solutions, they usually come in a strong citronella scent, which I’m rather not fond of.
Kindee Organic Food Grade Hand Sanitizer
-Sweet orange scent
-Contains 72.5% Alcohol
-Made with natural ingredients
-Kills virus, bacteria and mold
When we can’t wash our hands, the most convenient option is to use hand sanitizers. There are several available natural options, yet Kindee offers a food-grade sanitizer, so it’s safe for kids to eat with their hands or put them in their mouths in the cases of smaller babies. Other than that, it passed the Nanotec evaluation, so moms can rest assured that it effectively kills microorganisms, even salmonella! It’s a little sticky, though, but it’s safe.
