In early 2021, 55 families around the country sampled, tested, and reviewed almost 300 products in conjunction with PARENTS experts. A list of 30 products--including Green Goo's natural Bugs Be Gone spray--free from dyes, parabens, and oxybenzone were approved by PARENTS advisor and dermatologist Jody Alpert Levine, M.D., for PARENTS' Best Skin Care for Kids 2021 list.
In a press release, PARENTS Editor-in-Chief Julia Edelstein said: "With summer around the corner, it is imperative to protect your skin from head-to-toe. Our team at PARENTS compiled the top products that are safe for kids just in time for the warmer months ahead."
In the Outdoor Skincare category, Green Goo's Bugs Be Gone was named Best Bug Spray. Made with only natural herbs and essential oils--never synthetic chemicals, DEET, or citronella--Bugs Be Gone repels insects and also acts as a deodorizer. It's safe to apply directly to the skin and safe for the whole family.
From the PARENTS award listing: "DEET-free Green Goo Bugs Be Gone uses lemongrass, peppermint, and lavender essential oils to repel insects. After testing, one parent told us they'll keep a bottle in the house, the car, and the diaper bag all summer."
The full list of winning products is available on Parents.com/Skincare and in the July issue of PARENTS magazine.
