From Stillwater, New York, USA:

I have a six year old daughter with type 1 diabetes, diagnosed about a half-year ago. I just bought a sunscreen product for my children. I don't usually use this brand, and I notice that the third inactive ingredient listed is sorbitol. Should my daughter's absorbing this through her skin be of concern?


This product is not absorbed through the skin and should have no effect on her blood sugars.
