thinkbaby Sunscreen takes you and your baby's health very seriously. They know how the very chemicals that you may have used in the past to protect your skin from cancer could actually be carcinogenic themselves; when you apply lotion to your skin, many of the chemicals from the lotion go into your bloodstream almost immediately.

thinkbaby waterproof sunscreen, which donates a percentage of its revenue to support Lance Armstrong's LiveStrong Foundation to fight cancer, has a broad spectrum of UVA and UVB protection; has no parabens, PABA or oxybenzone, which has been known to disrupt hormones; received the Environmental Working Group's (EWG) highest sunscreen rating in 2010, is the only sunscreen to meet the Whole Foods Premium Body requirements, and is a member of the Safe Cosmetics Campaign Compact; has no titanium dioxide, and includes antioxidants C and E to protect your skin from sunlight's free radicals.

We love this sunscreen for how much it truly protects baby from the sun without causing any additional damage.
