Expand Parents should look for sunscreens that are specifically designed for children as these are sometimes tested by pediatricians and may have additional benefits to prevent stinging or tearing if they get it in their eyes. In addition, typically these products utilize colors and images that may get children excited about wearing sunscreen. It’s important to remember that the best sunscreen is the one that they are likely to use! Both inorganic and organic broad-spectrum sunscreens are designed to stay on the skin and are safe. Active ingredients like titanium dioxide and/or zinc oxide may be less likely to irritate a baby's sensitive skin.
