The Thinkbaby brand was also highly recommended on Amazon and has an almost 5-star rating. I like this option because it offers SPF 50+ protection, which is good for very fair skin. The active ingredient, like most sunscreens is zinc oxide, along with: aloe barbadensis leaf juice, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), capric caprylic triglycerides, cranberry seed oil, dimethicone, hyaluronic acid (made from vegetables), hydrogenated castor oil, jojoba oil, magnesium sulfate (epsom salt), methyl abietate (pine wood resin), papaya, olive oil, polyglycerol-10 laurate (vegetable glycerin), raspberry seed oil, sorbitan stearate (coconut based), sunflower oil, and tocopherols.
I'm a little confused by why this company advertises this sunscreen as “gluten-free” because you're not exactly supposed to eat sunscreen, but the ingredient list still passes my no “-ates” list. (No sulfates, etc., which are the worrisome chemicals for babies and everyone, really.)
The ingredients in this sunscreen are: Grape Seed Oil, Organic Sunflower Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglycerides (from Coconut Oil), Organic Beeswax, Organic Cocoa Butter, Organic Shea Butter, Stearic Acid (from Palm Oil), Purified Water and the sunscreen is SPF 30+.
I'm guessing living in Australia would mean you would know a thing or two about protecting yourself from the sun. This version, meant specifically for babies, is made with 10% Zinc Oxide and 5% Titanium Dioxide and is Paraben-Free, Fragrance-Free, and Chemical Free. G'day mates.
