4 Chemical-Free Sunscreen Products

Natural Sunscreen Continuous Sport Spray: Goddess Garden 

If you like the convenience of spray sunscreens but don’t want the chemicals, give Goddess Garden’s Sport Spray a go. While you won’t get the clear mist that chemical versions offer, this product is one of the best alternatives out there. The active ingredients are zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, unlike many other sunscreens that use active synthetic chemical ingredients such as oxybenzone and avobenzone. When zinc and titanium are used together, as in Goddess Garden, they help make sunscreen application sheer and non-whitening. The container is recyclable and non-aerosol. The formula is 100 percent biodegradable and packed with nourishing organic ingredients like aloe vera and sunflower oil.

Natural & Organic Sunscreen Stick: Just Skin Food 

As with all of Just Skin Food’s products, the Natural & Organic Sunscreen stick is made by hand in small batches. This young company uses only organic ingredients, and this stick doesn’t contain any water or liquid, making it a thicker, longer-lasting formula. We love that it contains mango butter—how luxurious is that! Non-nano zinc oxide protects from the sun’s harmful rays. We also appreciate the cardboard tube that is easily recyclable.

California Baby Sunscreen: California Baby

If you’re anxious about applying sunscreen to your baby, we don’t blame you; a baby’s tender skin needs pure products. California Baby Sunscreen is formulated especially for baby and uses non-nano zinc oxide to block the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays. It can be used alone or in combination with a sunscreen stick on all exposed skin. It also contains organic sunflower oil, cocoa butter and shea butter for smooth application and moisturizing benefits. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) states that if exposure to the sun is unavoidable and your baby is under six months, a mineral-based sunscreen (like this) should be used; consult with your physician.

Sport Sunscreen: Badger

If pure is your thing, then so is this sunscreen that contains only five ingredients and no added scent. Made with uncoated, non-nano zinc oxide for the safest, most effective sun protection for the whole family, Badger’s cream sunscreens are rich in certified organic ingredients, naturally water resistant for 40 minutes, safe for children of all ages, block both UVA and UVB rays, and thoroughly moisturize while they protect you from the sun. They also meet the rigid standards for sunscreen allowed in the protected coral reef lagoons of Mexico.
