What it is: Banana Boat Baby Tear-Free Sunblock is made especially for a baby's delicate skin. It provides broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection and is hypoallergenic, PABA- and fragrance-free and waterproof. Importantly, the manufacturer says that if it gets in a child's eyes, it won't sting. This lotion is highly water resistant and is white in color, so parents can easily see if any skin is left unprotected. The active ingredients are Homosalate (15.0 percent), Octinoxate (7.5 percent), Octisalate (5.0 percent), Titanium Dioxide (2.4 percent) [source: EWG]. Banana Boat also makes a children's version. Be sure to ask a doctor before using this or any product on a child of six months or younger.
