If you haven’t heard the hype about the Yuka app, you will soon. Let us fill you in so that when your friend asks if you have the app, you know exactly what they’re talking about. Yuka is a free mobile app that allows you to scan the barcodes of food and personal-care products and immediately see their impact on your health. Each product page features information and a rating to help you understand the breakdown. Yuka recently shared a list of sunscreens rated “excellent” in the app, so you know the ingredients are not harmful to you or the environment. Here are the top healthy sunscreens, according to Yuka’s data. (The top seven were tied with a rating of 93 out of 100, so there are a ton of stellar options.)

The top sunscreens, according to Yuka

Thinkbaby Safe Sunscreen SPF 50+ ($24)

This hypoallergenic formula devoid of harmful chemicals is so good that it’s even safe and gentle enough for even the littlest one in the family.

2 / 12

Coppertone Pure & Simple Baby SPF 50 Mineral Stick ($8)

We’re glad to see that many of the top-ranking sunscreens are for our most sensitive users—babies. But who says you can’t also swipe on this easy-to-apply cocoa butter SPF stick after covering your kids in it?

Blue Lizard Sensitive SPF 50+ Mineral Sunscreen ($9)

I was ecstatic to learn that the Australian brand Blue Lizard, a personal favorite, made the list. This stick glides on easily and dries clear and smooth after being rubbed in, and I can attest sunburn is not breaking through this formula.

5 / 12

ThinkKids Safe Sunscreen SPF 50+ ($24)

Another sunscreen from Think further proves how worthwhile it is. A big benefit of this one is that non-sticky application, which makes it easier to get on kids that don’t love the feeling of SPF.

365 by Whole Foods Market Mineral Sport Lotion Sunscreen SPF 30 (store dependent)

Next time you’re at the grocery store grab this trustworthy sunscreen made with 80 percent organic ingredients.

First Aid Beauty Mineral Sunscreen Zinc Oxide Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($28)

This non-greasy mineral sunscreen is the perfect daily protection that keeps skin safe without leaving a white cast behind.

9 / 12

Pipette Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 ($17)

This non-toxic, fragrance-free sunscreen made for babies and adults alike is widely beloved—you’ll notice it in many a diaper bag. They say it’s for “toddlers, teenagers, grandparents and everyone in between.”

10 / 12

Avène Mineral Sunscreen Face & Body Lotion SPF 50 ($38)

This French sunscreen melts into skin at the speed of light. The lightweight texture makes it feel as if nothing is there, but it’s packed with hydrating, soothing and skin-protecting benefits.

11 / 12

Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen ($38)

We were glad to see that this fan favorite hit the mark. It’s beloved for its broad spectrum SPF production, skin-care benefits and natural finish.

This Native Body Sunscreen, specifically the Coconut & Pineapple scent, closes out the list. It’s vegan, safe for sensitive skin and smells live vacation.
