All the moms were talking about it yesterday at the pool: the renewed concern about spray sunscreen.
Check out this article from Consumer Reports.
The Food and Drug Administration is currently researching these sprays, testing to see if they cause asthma or allergy attacks. It's possible for kids to inhale the mist from these sunscreens, as spray swirls around their heads.
If no other product is available, Consumer Reports recommends parents spray it on their hands first, then apply it to the child's face and body.
