Is it better to use Organic Sunscreen on my child ?

I've been looking around for a natural sunscreen for my toddler, since I've heard that many other sunscreens contain all sorts of chemicals. The organic sunscreens are a little more expensive though, but I figure it's worth it for the sake of my daughter's health. Can anyone recommend a good one? I have been looking on the organic eczema shop website and they have one called wotnot natural sunscreen. If anyone can recommend it I'll try this one. It's a really informative website so I think it would be a good product but I just wanted to check with some other mummies first . .

I haven't used that one. We use another one called Badger and like it. The one issue is it doesn't rub in as well. Think old fashioned zinc oxide, the life guards with the white on the nose. We usually use the natural. I think it is also better at staying on in water. But I keep the regular stuff on hand too. I keep that as like my extra one in the car incase I forget the sunscreen since it is an extra and it is less expensive. I also use natural non toxic bug stuff most if the time, but if we are going hiking or camping and we will really be in the woods I use the regular stuff since the natural stuff doesn't usually repel ticks and they are a problem in our area.
