They are really not that much different from those that are made for adults, so you don't really have to buy a separate sunscreen just for your kids.
Remember that a sunscreen isn't better just because it is more expensive. In fact, some of the highest rated sunscreens in a Consumer Reports test were the least expensive, including Up & Up Sport Continuous Spray SPF 30 (Target) and Walgreens Sport Continuous Spray SPF 50. All of the most popular sunscreen brands tested by Consumer Reports tested either good or very good though.
Things to look for that would indicate that you are buying the 'best sunscreen,' include that it:
provides broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection.
has an SPF of at least 15 to 30. You could go for a higher SPF, but most experts believe that these high SPF sunscreens don't provide that much extra protection. Some experts go as far as to say the SPF rating should be capped at SPF 30 or SPF 50, which provides protection against 97 to 98 percent of UVB rays. Using a high SPF sunscreen might provide more protection for those parents who don't use enough sunscreen and don't reapply it often enough though.
is water-resistant. Even if you aren't going swimming, if your child is outside, he will likely be sweating, so a water resistant might provide better protection than a regular sunscreen.
is hypoallergenic and fragrance free, especially if your child has sensitive skin.
is in a form that is easy to use on your child, whether that means it is a stick, gel, lotion, spray, or continuous spray, etc.
