EWG Best Sunscreens for Kids

Does Your Sunscreen Make the List?

Each year the Environmental Working Group (EWG) rates the best sunscreens. The EWG selected the sunscreens below that are marketed for use on babies and children.

The EWG recommends using lotions rather than sunscreen sticks because some studies indicate that people tend to apply too little sunscreen when using sticks, so those products are not listed here.


Other ways to protect children from the sun’s UV rays is to:

Wear Clothes
Shirts, hats, shorts, and pants reduce the burn risk by 27%.

Find Shade or Make It
Find shade under a tree or make shade using a canopy, or umbrella which can reduce the risk of burns by 30%.

Sunglasses
Sunglass protect your eyes from UV radiation.

Plan Around the Sun
Go outdoors early in the morning or later in the afternoon when the sun is lower in the sky.

Check UV Index
The UV index provides important information to help plan your outdoor activities in ways to prevent sun overexposure.
