4 Best Non-Toxic Sunscreens

Have you made the switch to mineral sunscreen? If not, check out this post on why you need to! A lot of the name brands you’re used to seeing and buying … Banana Boat, Coppertone, SunBum, Panama Jack and even Neutrogena are all chemical sunscreens. The EWG (Environmental Working Group), a consumer protection agency, shared this list of sunscreens ranked worst to best. The household names you’re used to buying top the worst end of the spectrum.

One of the downsides of chemical sunscreens is that they contain harmful ingredients and because chemical sunscreens are absorbed into the skin, the ingredients can then enter your bloodstream, including potentially harmful ingredients such as avobenzone, oxybenzone, ecamsule and octocrylene. Check out this article for more information.

Why not just avoid all of those ingredients and switch to a clean, non-toxic SPF? Today I’m sharing the 4 best non-toxic sunscreens!

This time of year is the PERFECT time to stock up on non-toxic sunscreen.

4 Best Non-Toxic Sunscreens

Beautycounter Countersun Sunscreen

Beautycounter’s Countersun Sunscreen is available in both lotion and spray. I keep both on hand! It’s SPF 30. I use the lotion for weekends outdoors and pool days. I prefer the spray version for beach trips!

Both versions are available in full size and travel size. Check out the regular size lotion here and the travel size here. The full size spray version is here and the travel size is here!

Supergoop Mineral Matte Tinted Sunscreen

I use Supergoop Mineral Matte Tinted Sunscreen everyday as part of my morning skincare routine. I love it! it’s SPF 40. I apply it after all of my serums and moisturizers but before any of my makeup. I love the matte finish. And the tint acts as a nice primer for my everyday makeup!

Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer

I use the Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer as a lightweight foundation during the spring/summer months. It has SPF 20 in it, which is perfect on top of the Supergoop Mineral Matte sunscreen. The Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer is definitely more of a makeup product that has sunscreen in it rather than a stand alone sunscreen. For shade reference, I wear No. 3.

Beautycounter Mineral Sunscreen Stick

Last but not least, I like the Beautycounter Mineral Sunscreen Stick for applying sunscreen to my face when I know I’m going to be outside for long periods of time. For example, if I’m going on a bike ride, hanging by the pool, or at the beach. The stick makes it super easy to apply (I’ve heard it’s great for kids too!).
