Description

The majority of sunscreens currently on the market are full of questionable ingredients and known carcinogens. Simply look at the ingredients and you’ll quickly realize you don’t recognize any of them. Not only do ingredients in sunscreen interact with skin, but data shows that after applying a lotion, some of the same chemicals can be detected in the bloodstream. At Thinkbaby we are continually expanding our mission to provide safe products by identifying consumer product categories with known human health issues. Specifically, we target products that contain high levels of hormone disruptors and carcinogens. We then work with leading scientists worldwide to create safe alternatives.

 

Thinkbaby sunscreen is highly effective, falls into the highest category for water resistance and has a sensible SPF 50+ rating.  An SPF higher than SPF 30 offers only minimal improvement in sun protection and does not provide insight into its ability to protect from both UVA and UVB. Instead, these ultra-high SPFs are inflated through the use of chemical UV absorbers.   The FDA has recently ruled that SPF numbers above 50 are not allowed. They have also ruled the terms “Sweatproof” and “Waterproof” as false claims.

Usage

Children over the age of 6 months and anyone who will be exposed to sunlight should use sunscreen.

Thinkbaby and Thinksport sunscreen is perfect for daily use and for anyone spending time in the sun, including pregnant women, children over 6 months, and anyone with sensitive skin.  Please note that use of sunscreen on children younger than 6 months of age requires a doctor’s prescription for any sunscreen brand.

Thinkbaby and Thinksport  sunscreen is a physical sunscreen which means it works immediately upon application. It is not necessary to apply 30 minutes before you are exposed to sunlight as is the case with chemical sunscreens. Thinkbaby and Thinksport sunscreen is classified as water resistant (80 minutes). This is the FDA’s highest possible rating. It will maintain its SPF after 80 minutes of water immersion. The Environmental Working Group recommends reapplying sunscreen every two hours.

Thinkbaby and Thinksport  sunscreen is perfect for sensitive skin. We recommend testing on a small area of the body to ensure that you don’t have any sensitivities.

Tips for Application

Thinkbaby and Thinksport formula applies easily and absorbs quickly. Be sure to apply all areas that will be exposed to sunlight, including behind the ears, neck, hands, feet, and scalp. Reapply every two hours or more as needed. While the sunscreen applies very easily, we recommend not spreading it too thin. Otherwise you will decrease the effectiveness of the sunscreen. Keep in mind that physical sunscreens work by reflecting sunlight.

Packaging

Thinkbaby and Thinksport  sunscreen comes in tubes made of environmentally friendly packaging that does not contain BPA, vinyl, or phthalates. The packaging and contents are environmentally safe. Each tube is marked with an expiration date.
