I use Ombrelle Sunscreen. It is also not perfumed - so it's safe for my insect allergic son. :)

We used Coppertone Spectra 3 for our son this past summer. He has a lot of trouble with sunscreens in terms of his eczema, but he seemed to fare a little better with this one - although, his skin would begin to get irritated by it. We used to use Ombrelle for Kids, and it's fine for the sesame-allergic, but it bothered his skin more, so we had to look for an alternate. If we hear of another good one to try, safe for the sesame-allergic, we would be happy to learn of a new one. (Aside note: our daughter, who has no food allergies, and no skin issues, was not able to use the Coppertone Spectra 3 - she broke out in a rash! Fortunately, she can use any old sunscreen, and it doesn't bother her in any way.)

I use vanicream SPF15. I'm allergic to tons of stuff, including but not limited to: soy, peanut, lanolin, aloe vera, lavender, parabens, EDTA, papaya, chemical sunscreens, etc. I can't use anything with a fragrance, either.

So vanicream it is!

Neutrogena has a mineral block, but it contains something I'm allergic to. Presun also has a mineral block.

I use the Neutrogena and have for years. The oldest DS with the allergies has no problems, the youngest, no allergies, can only use this one!! Develops a lovely facial rash.

This year I had to switch to a baby 60 SPF sensitive skin Neutrogena - no problemo!

We have switched to Coppertone Oil Free sunscreen. My son requires "oil free" products if they are to be put on his face.
