We’ve all heard the debate about sunscreens. Yes they protect us from the sun’s harmful rays, but they are so full of chemicals is it even worth the risk? Not to mention I recently read an article about Rickets disease making a comeback due to the lack of vitamin D from all our hard work shielding our skin from the sun. It seems we just can’t win!
Well, I’m not worried about Rickets, but I am worried about UVA/UVB rays and sun damage, especially when it comes to my 3 year old son. But get out there and try to decide on a sunscreen and I’m lost. There are so many choices. You can narrow your choices by choosing a brand that isn’t chemical based. But I’ve been slowly making my way through those brands and haven’t found one I like.
I quickly ran out and picked up a bottle before our trip to Mexico and I am so pleased with it. It goes on easy and doesn’t look like I just dusted my son in chalk or dipped him in a vat of grease, it smells good, and it just plain works. But the best part? It has a safety rating of 1 on the Environmental Working Group websites database. The lower the number the better. I feel so much better knowing I’m not covering my son in chemicals every time I try to protect him from the suns harmful rays.
We spent a week in Mexico and 5 days at the cottage – we were in the sun all day, every day for 2 weeks and no sunburns!
If you are looking to buy ThinkSport you can check out their website & buy directly from them, or check out the ‘where to buy’ section, however it wasn’t up to date. I had the best luck just googling it and found it locally.

Here’s to summer & spending time outside! Hope you’re enjoying your summer!
