Protect Your Skin with These Safe, Natural Sunscreens
Summer will be here before we know it, and many of us are looking forward to leaving our coats behind and soaking up a few warming rays. However you prefer to enjoy the balmy weather, never forget to give yourself a generous coating of sunscreen.
We’ve rounded up some of the most popular sunscreens with natural formulas (no chemical UV absorbers and no nano-particles). Keep one on your vanity and another in your purse, so you can stay protected while you’re on the go!

Aloe is the first ingredient in this lightweight, sheer sunscreen, so you know it’s extra soothing. Infused with shea butter, jojoba oil, avocado, white tea leaf extract, and rose flower extract, Babo Daily Sheer Facial Sunscreen is like superfood for your complexion.
Beautycounter Protect Stick SPF 30 (Body)
If you feel like a goopy mess after applying sunscreen, consider using a stick. This mess-free option protects from both UVA and UVB rays without leaving a ghostly white residue. The Protect Stick is kid-friendly and water resistant for up to 80 minutes, making it an essential in any wellness kit.
Kypris Pot of Shade Heliotropic SPF 30
For translucent, everyday protection, you can’t beat Kypris broad-spectrum Pot of Shade. This zinc-based sunscreen is free of essential oils, so it’s safe for even the most sensitive of skin. Bonus—it doubles as a moisturizing primer.

All Good Lip Balm - Coconut - SPF 20
This ultra-hydrating lip balm is certified organic, completely non-toxic (which is good because some will inevitably end up in your mouth), and leaves lips feeling silky soft.
