Top Picks for Children’s Sunscreen

Safe, healthy, non-toxic sunscreens for children and adults alike

Badger SPF 30 Baby Sunscreen Cream

For me Badger is the ultimate healthy sunblock for my family. It has the cleanest ingredients list of all the sunscreens listed here and is the most affordable. Unfortunately it is also the thickest, stickiest, and hardest to rub into your little ones skin. Apply liberally with patience 🙂

Goddess Garden Organics SPF 30 Kids Natural Sunscreen

This is the natural sunblock that behaves most like a sunscreen. It is the thinnest and easiest to apply of all the blocks listed here. It has a fairly natural ingredients list but it does use a mix of Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide, and I usually try to go with Zinc Oxide only for children.

Erbaviva SPF 30 Sunscreen

Like Badger, Erbaviva’s sunblock formula only uses Zinc Oxide which is a plus. It also has a totally organic ingredient list and is very luxurious and smells divine!

Green Beaver Company SPF 4o Kids Sunscreen

Green Beaver has another strong natural sunblock to consider. I love that it is a Canadian Company. Since it uses only about 50% certified organic ingredients and combines Zinc Oxide with Titanium Dioxide it makes our 4th spot on best sunscreens for kids 2016.
