How do I use THINKBABY sunscreen?
Children over the age of 6 months and anyone who will be exposed to sunlight should use sunscreen.
THINKBABY sunscreen is perfect for anyone spending time in the sun, including pregnant women, children over 6 months, and anyone with sensitive skin.
THINKBABY 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 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 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.
Sunscreens that claim to be hypo-allergenic are nothing more than marketing hype in our opinion. As the population's exposure to chemicals has risen, there has been a direct correlation to things that people become allergic to. Simply google environmental exposure and allergies to view some of this research.
Tips for Application
THINKBABY 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.
What else you might want to know....
The difference between physical and chemical sunscreens
Physical (or mineral) sunscreens work by protecting the skin with a physical barrier on top of the skin. Mineral sunscreens contain an active ingredient of either zinc or titanium oxide. Thinkbaby sunscreen has the active ingredient of zinc oxide. Chemical sunscreens penetrate the skin and are absorbed into the blood stream. Active ingredients such as oxybenzone are found in chemical sunscreens and can act as endocrine disruptors in the body.
The truth about SPF ratings
THINKBABY sunscreen is rated SPF 50+. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends children over 6 months and adults use a sunscreen with SPF of 30 or higher. Some chemical sunscreens advertise SPF ratings as high as 100, however, the FDA revisited the system and set the upper limit to SPF 50 for 2012. The rating system as it stands causes more misperceptions than it solves. In short, sunscreens with very high SPF ratings do not provide better protection than a SPF 30 in relative terms. It’s important to note that the current SPF rating system does not rate UVA; it only rates UVB. Dermatologists recommend using a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB exposure. UVB is what commonly is associated with causing sunburn and free radical generation. Where UVA has been linked to skin damage and even more serious potential for free radical generation.
