Thinksport Sunscreen Review 2022

Thinksport and Thinkbaby sunscreens have been a go-to natural sunscreen for years and one of my top recommendations for safe, affordable and mineral sunscreens for the whole family. The EWG verified Thinksport sunscreens are SPF 50+ and are one of the most versatile sunscreens I’ve tried. Their sunscreens have been rated “1” by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) since 2010. Thinksport and Thinkbaby were both founded by Kevin Brodwick, who has a background in preventative medicine and biotechnology, with a team of physicians and scientists to make clean, healthier science-based products for families. Thinksport and Thinkbaby are most known for their safe sunscreens, but also have a wide range of deodorants, baby skincare and bodycare products. All Think products are in the $10-$15 range, making them affordable for families with tight budgets who want the cleanest products possible. Read on for my Thinksport review!

The Thinksport and Thinkbaby founder set out to create clean products that were functional and sustainable:

“It became clear during my work within a biological testing lab (non-animal) that products on the market were fraught with issues. It didn’t matter if the product was made in China, the US or Switzerland, there were chemicals leaching that had the potential to cause endocrine disruption, cancer and reproductive harm. It also became quickly clear that government regulation was not on the near horizon. So Thinkbaby and Thinksport set off to create alternatives. The company first identified baby bottle, as 95% of the bottles on the market were composed of Bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical that is suspected to disrupt the endocrine system. We then proceeded to target other products within the baby feeding realm and were led by parents to design a sports bottle. Thinkbaby and Thinksport approaches each product category with the same criteria. Safe. Functional. Sustainable.

The Most All-Purpose Natural Sunscreen

Thinksport sunscreens are the most versatile sunscreens I’ve come across. It’s hard to find a sunscreen that works well for outdoors and sports activity days that can also work well as a face sunscreen. The Thinksport sunscreens are the ideal safe sunscreen for athletes who sweat a lot because they’re water resistant, but they also work for the face and under makeup. Usually you need to purchase a face sunscreen separately from your sports sunscreen, but Thinksport works for both occasions.

The trick is in the consistency. They didn’t make the Thinksport sunscreen so rich it couldn’t be used for the face. But it’s still thick enough to stay put through sweat-filled activities. While there are more lightweight lotion type sunscreens that work for both face and body, some people prefer a balm consistency because it absorbs and applies quicker and easier for them. If you prefer a light lotion I recommend Babo Botanicals or Pipette which is also great for the whole family.

The Thinksport sunscreens are also a fantastic face sunscreen and the water resistance is a great bonus if you’re sweating while outdoors. I find that I don’t need to use a moisturizer because the Thinksport sunscreen is rich enough to replace them.

Men like the Thinksport sunscreens for the minimal and sporty look. So if you’re having trouble getting your husband to apply sunscreen daily, have them try Thinksport.

Scent

All Thinksport and Thinkbaby sunscreens have a tropical pina colada smell.

Is There a White Cast

There is a hint of white cast as it’s a 100% mineral zinc oxide formula.

Consistency

Thinksport and Thinkbaby sunscreens feel like a creamy balm and are on the emollient side. It does not feel like a lightweight lotion and is not a milky fluid. Thinksport sunscreens feel much more like a balm.
