Don’t forget to always read labels for allergens, even on non-food items like sunscreens. Nuts, soy and other foods are common ingredients in skin care products, especially organic/non-chemical ones.
These are some sunscreens our members have liked, but may not work for you; it may be trial and error to find a sunscreen doesn’t flare your eczema. Always read labels and start with a small area of skin, your own ‘patch testing,’ if you will. A general rule of thumb is to avoid fragranced products as these can exacerbate allergies/eczema.
For additional suggestions, try The National Eczema Foundation and The Environmental Working Group (EWG) which has great research on sunscreens but is not focused on allergens so read ingredients carefully.
