Fortunately several savvy sunscreen manufactures have mastered the art of creating safe and effective sunscreens.
Listed below are our Top 4 sunscreen picks which just might become your family favorites too.

- A score of no more than 1 from the SkinDeep website, in other words these sunscreen will contain very few if any chemicals that are deemed hazardous. Keep in mind anything that you put on your skin (the largest organ in the body), absorbs right into the blood stream, so that is why you want to choose only the safest sunscreens.
- Passed real-world usability tests based on the many reviews and emails sent from our readers about which sunscreens actually work.
