And the Winner Is: Baby Waxhead Sun Defense

Most of your sun damage happens before adulthood, which means you’ll play a big role in protecting baby from harmful rays. Once they’re mobile, sun protection is essential for everyday park hangs and outdoor adventures. Finding a sunblock that rubs in easily while offering mineral protection is no easy task, but Waxhead Sun Defense is up for the challenge. Made with only six ingredients, including sun-shielding non-nano zinc oxide, this formula is safe for people (including babies) and marine life. It’s thick but rubs in easily, leaving a subtle whitish hue—protection you can see. It’s not sticky or greasy, just incredibly effective at protecting baby’s delicate skin. And the EWG, our go-to resource for clean ingredient products, gives it their seal of approval.
