If you don’t already know, we live in a country where it’s mostly sunny, all through the year. Even in winters, when winds are chilly and nights are cold, parts of day always get extreme sun exposure. And I have been searching for a good, kid-safe sunscreen for a long time now. And I came across the Biotique Baby Sun Block sunscreen that claims to be all herbal and pediatrician approved.
I have used Banana Boat, but I wanted something that has natural ingredients because I didn’t want to use chemicals when it comes to a product that is to be used on a daily basis.

3 years from manufacturing
Babies who are 6 months or older.
Ghrit Kumari (Aloevera barbadensis) 2.0%, Yahsad bhasam (Zincum) 1.0%, Surajmukhi tail (Helianthus annuus oil) 5.0%, Kusumbhi tail (Carthamus tinctorius oil) 3.0%, Mom (Bees wax) 7.5%, Purified water Q.S.
Feather light texture. The consistency of this sunscreen is somewhere in between a gel and a lotion.
Very subtle smell of aloe vera, that stays for a few minutes after application, which is perfect for children.
For babies 6 months or older, apply liberally before sun exposure. Reapply every two hours. Use sunscreen even on cloudy days as clouds don’t absorb all the UV radiation which may cause harm to your child.
What I like about Biotique Baby Sun Block Sunscreen:
- Extremely light in weight.
- Doesn’t feel sticky.
- Suitable for all skin types including oily skin.
- Has subtle fragrance.
- Absorbs quickly.
- Doesn’t leave a white cast behind.
- Hygienic and travel-friendly packaging.
What I don’t like about Biotique Baby Sun Block Sunscreen:
- Price is a bit higher for the quantity of the product that you get.
- Availability is one issue since it’s not available internationally. Even in India it’s not available everywhere. Very few online stores stock it.
- Reapplication is one more thing that bothers me. The product needs to re-applied every two hours.
My experience with Biotique Baby Sun Block Sunscreen:
We have been using this sunscreen for over the past a month and a half and we can never have enough of it. The soft texture and light fragrance is so welcoming.
It absorbs beautifully like water which is just perfect when it comes to children. Also I don’t have to worry about any white cast or greasiness for application.
Although I’m not very impressed with the fact that it needs to be re-applied every two hours. I obviously don’t want to keep bugging my children every now and then. I just wish it lasted for at least 6 hours at a stretch.
As it’s not available internationally, or at least I never came across it so far, I had to order it from India. So if you are in India then you have an advantage, just grab it while you have a chance.
Will I re-purchase Biotique Baby Sun Block Sunscreen:
Totally. I’m going to purchase it again and again, until I find a sunscreen that’s better or as good as this one.
