The First Sunscreen Line to Pass Whole Foods Premium Care

No matter where you like to obtain your information, if you type in "chemical sunscreen", you'll be confronted by a tremendous amount of concern relating to chemicals in sunscreen. In addition, most chemical sunscreens are in aerosol spray form, which the FDA is beginning to review. Studies have not only shown their lack of effectiveness, but there is concern about the particulates being inhaled.

Over the last 5 years, there has been a move to mineral-based sunscreen. As the world becomes more informed on this issue through sun care safety databases like Skin Deep, we wanted to make sure you were aware of our safer solutions.

Thinkbaby and Thinksport were created ten years ago to address the growing concern of harmful chemicals leaching from consumer products. Our founder, having previously worked for a lab funded by the National Institutes of Health on endocrine disrupting chemicals leaching from consumer products, became painfully aware of the expanse of this issue from everything from baby bottles to sunscreen.

Thinkbaby launched the first BPA free baby bottle line and Thinksport followed by launching the first insulated BPA free sports bottle line. Since our inception, we have targeted products that are harmful and provided consumers with safer alternatives. Along the way, we have also been a heavy supporter of health centric non-profit organizations from Breast Cancer Fund to Healthy Child Healthy World. 

My Thoughts

Summer is just around the corner, and that means it's time to stock up on your sunblock. Even now, in the spring,  my family spends a lot of time outside. I love hiking along the nature trails and taking the kids on the beach to search for shells.  The weather is just starting to warm up, but your skin can still get damaged by the harsh rays of the sun. This year, I don't want to use the same old greasy sunscreens, but I still want superior protection for me and my children. ThinkSport and ThinkBaby was the perfect choice for me.

These sunscreens come in formulas that work on both the face and body, but they are more than just sunscreen. In addition to providing powerful SPF protection, their mineral based formula is a safer, more natural alternative to other moisturizers. It even has a pleasant scent that doesn't smell too much like chemicals.

I tried both the ThinkBaby and the ThinkSport. Each one offers a smooth formula that glides onto skin, rubbing in evenly and leaving behind no greasy residue.  Each application leaves your skin feeling soft and touchable.  Each one offers SPF 50 protection, which gives you the perfect coverage every time. Each one is is also water resistant. ThinkSport offers the perfect protection. You can trust your skint to it all summer long.
