And the Winner Is: Thinkbaby Safe Sunscreen

Did you know people get most of their sun exposure before age 18? That means you’ll play a big role in protecting baby’s delicate skin now and for years to come. Slathering SPF onto a squirmy 6-month old or an energetic toddler presents its own set of challenges. Finding a sunblock that glides on easily and offers mineral-based protection is crucial. Thinkbaby Safe Sunscreen checks all the boxes. It applies and absorbs easily—no oily feel like others we tested. It boasts SPF 50 broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection without any toxic chemicals. And the EWG, our go to resource when choosing a safe sunscreen, gives it top billing. Best of all, it’s water-resistant (up to 80 minutes), which means your little one is fully protected while they splash about.

What We Love

• This sunscreen offers powerful SPF 50 protection from broad spectrum UVA and UVB rays; it’s also water-resistant for up to 80 minutes so your little one can hit the park’s splash pad and still stay protected

• The formula glides on easily and absorbs quickly, especially for a mineral-based formula, which cuts application time down compared to other brands

• A top rated pick by the EWG, it’s free of harmful chemicals, including those known to damage coral reefs

• It contains no PABA, parabens, phthalates, BPA, oxybenzone, avobenzone, petroleum, gluten or dairy
