Company Profile: Thinkbaby and Thinksport

Just in time for all the fun in the sun, the Moscow Food Co-op has begun carrying an excellent new line of sunscreen from the company Thinkbaby and Thinksport.  Their sunscreens are top rated by the Environmental Working Group; they have the highest SPF, water resistance and UVA/UVB coverage allowed by the FDA; and they are free of harmful chemicals.

While working in a biological testing lab, the company’s founder, Kevin Brodwick, discovered that products being used routinely by consumers were leaching chemicals that have the potential to cause cancer, developmental problems, and reproductive harm. Thinkbaby and Thinksport was born out of his frustration with trying and failing to get major corporations to alter their chemical policies and to produce safer products.

Now Kevin, with a team of physicians and scientists, focus on the latest biological and chemical research -unbiased research not industry sponsored research- in order to create consumer goods that are functional, safe and sustainable.  In addition to the sunscreen that the Co-op carries, the company also manufactures other toxin-free body care products; BPA-free baby bottles, sippy cups, food containers, and insulated sports bottles; and PVC-free yoga mats.

In 2014 Thinkbaby and Thinksport became a certified B Corporation, which means it is using business to solve social and environmental problems and is meeting rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.  This year Thinkbaby and Thinksport was awarded B Corporation’s “Best for the Community” designation, which means that the company’s positive impact on its workers, community and environment ranks in the top 10% among all B Corp companies.  

The Thinkbaby and Thinksport mission is to deliver safe, functional, and sustainable product that is free of biologically harmful chemicals.

After looking at the Environmental Working Group’s website: ewg.org/2015sunscreen, Amy Newsome is definitely going to purchase Thinksport sunscreen since she discovered that her usual sunscreen does not rank nearly as well as theirs does!
