California Baby SPF 30 + Sunblock Stick

Top 5 Sunscreens

California Baby SPF 30 is non-chemical, fragrance-free, water resistant and hypoallergenic

When we first had children, all products seemed potentially lethal. Sunscreen? We might as well slather our innocent infants in toxins. Then we discovered California Baby, which is still our go-to sunscreen now that the kids survived the toddler age. (Selma Blair is reportedly a fan of the brand.) This USA-made, organic, sustainably grown, allergy-tested line isn’t on the cheap side, but you’ll feel good putting it on your wee ones because it’s PABA-free, non-chemical, fragrance-free, water resistant and hypoallergenic. Its main ingredient is a micronized titanium dioxide. Our fave is the easy-application sunblock stick, which is perfect for feisty small faces wiggling away from Mom’s fiddling fingers, and thick enough not to wash off easily in the pool or ocean.

Main Ingredient: micronized titanium dioxide
Price: $16 for 0.5 oz.
