We recently shared one of Awestruck’s videos, “Almost Perfect Beach Hacks” and followed-up with a day at the beach ourselves. We tried out several of the recommended hacks including using baby powder to get sand off of wet hands and bodies. It works! BUT – the baby powder sparked an internal conversation here at MomAngeles. There’s been a lot of talk lately in the media about the safety concerns of talc powder. So we wanted to know – which baby powders are the safest and will still work at the beach?
So we went to our trusty online resource, EWG (Environmental Working Group) Skin Deep Cosmetics DB. They do the research to determine which products are safest for families. They rate products from 1-5, a “1” rating means the safest. At the top of their list of safer baby powders was Ajara, Ava Anderson, Episencial, Be Green and California Baby, many of which have tapioca starch in them to dry moisture. You can also try using an all natural food items like corn starch.
We don’t know for sure if any of the above will have the same results at the beach as talc powder, but we wanted to give you options to try out. To learn more about EWG and the work they do on behalf of US families visit them online.
