This non-toxic, non-whitening, non-nano mineral sunscreen has only one active sunscreen ingredient: zinc oxide. This baby-safe product is water resistant (40 minutes), vegetarian, biodegradable, unscented, and provides broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) protection. Added bonus? A handful of Honest products (including sunscreen) are now available at Target if you can’t wait for it to be shipped or don’t subscribe to their bundles.

  • I love Honest Company products but this wasn’t my favorite. The sunscreen is thick when applying and leaves a heavy white residue on your skin. I definitely don’t recommend this product. Feb 13, 2019

  • It is tricky to dispense without a mess when its warm outside, tends to squirt out when warm. And it stains clothes, but IT WORKS, and thats why it stays in my beach bag regardless of the drawbacks. Jan 02, 2019

  • We like some Honest products, but found this sunscreen to be greasy and hard to apply. Oil leaks from the lid and it always seems to make a mess. Don't recommend! Jan 23, 2018

  • Bought this for my toddler. Wanted something more on the organic side. Something that wasn’t so greasy. I would buy this again Dec 08, 2017

  • Great ingredients, but it is super thick and hard to rub in. Does not feel good on the skin. Oct 23, 2017

  • Does not spread easily which is a pain on a child who just wants to be done - love the safe ingredients but we didn't use it more than once and bought others. Oct 19, 2017

  • Wanted to love this sunscreen, but we hated the consistency. It was very thick and hard to rub into squirmy baby. Aug 15, 2017

  • I will never buy this sunscreen again. It feels like rubbing butter on your face, it's so greasy. Jul 16, 2017

  • Do not like the smell. Doesn't rub in well Jun 28, 2017

    Very very greasy and shiny. It feels like you are rubbing pure coconut oil all over your skin. It doesn't feel like it provides much coverage. May 05, 2017

    Love this product! My son has shown a sensitivity to all sunscreens and this is the only one that doesn't make him break out in a rash! Apr 29, 2017

  • Works great! Apr 17, 2017

  • I don't know if they ended up changing their formula (I hope so), but I got terribly burnt using this sunscreen. I apply every hour and liberally and was fried! Feb 18, 2017

  • Great, effective and affordable natural sunscreen with trusted ingredients. Dec 04, 2016

  • Love this sunscreen! The whole family uses it! Sep 18, 2016

  • Applies white Sep 12, 2016

    For some reason my daughter got a little sunburn with this product. I am religious about applying and reapplying. I have heard similar complaints from other parents. Apr 26, 2016

    It is too greasy and oily! Mar 11, 2016

    Also, so very greasy (like the Babyganics one too). Felt like baby was going to fry, not be protected from the sun. Jan 30, 2016

  • Never had an issue with it. My son never got sun burn and he was a sun virgin this past summer. I applied probably every 45 minutes bc he was only 9 mos at the time. Definitely will use it next year! Dec 11, 2015

    All natural and it smells fantastic! Nov 28, 2015

  • Works great for us. We use it every day and don't have any issues (despite the recent backlash) Aug 05, 2015

  • Great to use because of its safety - no chemicals. However the smell is not the best, it rubs off on the stroller and therefore more laundry and does not apply easily. Jul 20, 2015

  • It is a little thick to apply but it has the most zinc of any product on the market. Zinc is the best for blocking sun. Jul 17, 2015
