Babyganics Sunscreen in Single-Use Tubes

With all of the sunscreen options available these days, it’s nice to know there are companies out there doing their research and pledging to abide by safety standards. Babyganics is run by two friends who are also dads and their company prides themselves on their baby-safe standards. The variety shown below is extra awesome because it comes in single-use tubes so it packs light and easy in your purse or diaper bag for those “oh no, I forgot the sunscreen!” moments.

Living in Colorado, we’ve become very accustomed to grabbing shades every time we go out in the sun. Babiators makes sunglasses for even the youngest member of your family and is guaranteed to be safe, as they say, “whether they’re on your child’s face or end up in their mouth.” They are also very durable and shatter-resistant so they will hold up to the test of time with little ones.
