I feel privileged to introduce you to an absolutely wonderful company {and it’s Owner} today.  Sierra Summits, was founded in 2006 by Jennifer Rice, a MPAS PA-C in Dermatology.  “It was patient feedback and concerns about the “mainstream” sunscreen brands, which prompted Rice to bring a high quality, dermatology grade sunscreen to market at an affordable price point.”
In my opinion, Sierra Summits has found a Winner.  I am absolutely in love with this sunscreen.  Weird?  Maybe.  Believe me, I’ve tried quite a few sunscreens on the market and this is the first one I reach for… for Sophia and me!

Haven’t heard of Sierra Summits’ Tahoe Kids sunscreen before?  That’s not surprising.  They are still a relatively small brand and are working on getting their name out through grass roots campaigns.  Let me tell you a bit about the Tahoe Kids sunscreen.

  • It has an SPF of 40.
  • It is based on a Zinc Oxide formula {exactly what you want in a good sunscreen!}
  • It is Oil-Free and Fragrance-Free.
  • It is Hypoallergenic.
  • It will not burn your eyes.
  • Best of All… It has received the approval of the Melanoma International Foundation.
I was asked recently if the sunscreens that I use are chemical free, since I’m proclaiming to be a green Mama.  Sunscreen is one thing that I will not compromise with.  I have battled skin cancer and I will do everything in my power {that is healthy} to protect and prevent my child from going through the issues that I have.

There are some areas that I choose to go the natural route and some areas that I choose to heed my Doctor’s advice.

Why I Love Tahoe Kids Sunscreen:  It’s smooth, creamy, and I really feel like it protects our skin.  Sophia’s skin seems sensitive at times and it’s never dried her out or made her skin red.  It rubs in easily, isn’t greasy at all, and has NO scent.  I hate walking around smelling like sunscreen {unless I’m at the beach!}

Buy It:  You can buy a 3 oz tube of Tahoe Kids Sunscreen on the Sierra Summits website for $12.99.
