Top Picks for Safe Sunscreens

There is definitely an ideal amount of sun exposure. Too little, and we don’t derive the health benefits of vitamin D. Plus we run the risk of looking anemic, pasty, and generally unwell.

Too much and we risk sunburn and skin cancer. Also not a good look. Especially the sunburn that leaves you with the raccoon eye appearance of sunglass use. But, back to my point.

The vast majority of sunscreen available in the US contains toxic chemicals, many of which are banned in Europe.

Sunscreen is unique among personal care products in that it is meant to remain on your skin for HOURS. Therefore looking for less toxic alternatives is critical.

Here is a list of sunscreens rated by the EWG (Environmental Working Group) as safe and effective:

  • Bare Republic SPF 50 Mineral Shimmer Sunscreen

  • Alba Botanica Facial Mineral Sunscreen, Fragrance-Free, SPF 20

  • All Good Sunstick, Unscented, SPF 30

  • Badger Sunscreen

  • La Roche-Posay Anthelios Melt-In Sunscreen Milk SPF 60

  • CeraVe Baby Sunscreen Lotion, SPF 45

  • SkinCeuticals Light Moisture UV Defense SPF 50

  • Think Sunscreens
