Summa, summa, summa time—it’s here! Today marks the first official day of summer, which makes me incredibly happy. Time for easy days, pool and beach breaks, cute dresses, and lots of sunblock, obviously. If you want to stay protected (as you should) but aren’t into the loads of toxins in most mainstream sunscreens, we’ve got you. Here are 5 clean sunscreens that are healthy for you and the environment:
Honest Mineral Sunscreen
SPF 50 that is safe for the whole family and free of parabens, fragrances and chemical sunscreens like oxybenzone and octinoxate. This mineral sunscreen is water resistant up 80 minutes, so you can swim and protect simultaneously.
All Good Sunscreen Butter
This sunscreen, or butter (how lux?!,) option is made with organic ingredients, is water resistant for up to 80 minutes, and as a plus, is gluten free. It offers SPF 50 protection which is the lowest number I’ll go personally.
Babo Sheer Zinc Continuous Spray Sunscreen
This sunscreen will spray on sheer, so no worries about streaks. This option is free of parabens, dyes and sulfates so you also don’t have to worry about negative side effects on sensitive skin. I really, really this kind.
Green Goo Solar Goo Sun Protection Stick
If you prefer a stick to a cream or a runny spray, you’ll love Green Goo. This is a wonderful option for faces because it’s infused with coconut oil and made with only seven organic ingredients, so no breakouts. Yay!
Kabana Green Screen Organic Sunscreen
This sunscreen is available in a few different SPFs and only has nine ingredients on the label, but the most important thing about this brand is that they are the only one on the shelves that shares OTC SPF testing data. Aka they list the actual size of zinc oxide particles. Amazing, right?
What brands should I add to my summer bag?
