Natural sunscreen is a hotly contested topic - who’s got the best natural sunscreen? How often do we need sunscreen? Is sunscreen bad for you? In that order: us, daily, gosh no!

What is the best natural sunscreen?

We think we’re biased, but our Clean Beauty definition is very stringent, so few SPFs make the cut! Edible Beauty Basking Beauty Natural Sunscreen,Hunter Lab SPF 50+ Facial Sunscreen, Colorescience Sunforgettable Total Protection Brush SPF30 and Eco Tan Natural Rose Hip Sunscreen are all incredible options - for all completely different reasons!

What if I’m looking for a sunscreen for sensitive skin?

Then a Clean Beauty sun cream may be the one for you! Free from potentially irritating chemicals and fragrances, as well as being mineral based sunscreens, rather than chemical sunscreens - this selection is overall much less likely to cause irritation, and much more likely to become your new BFF!!

I’m looking for a natural sunscreen for the face - not the body. 

All sunscreens contained in this category are facial sunscreens - but can also be used on the body. So no stress - these are double duty winners!

What if I’m after an organic sunscreen?

If it’s organic sunscreen you’re in the market for, you can’t go past Eco Tan Natural Rose Hip Sunscreen, which is an untinted zinc-based sunscreen. Organic sunscreens are quite hard to come by - often because organic certification can be a pricey endeavour - so although all sunscreens found in our natural sunscreen range can be considered clean and natural, only Eco Tan Natural Rose Hip Sunscreen is organically certified. The great news is that suitable for face AND body - so what more could you need?

Is sunscreen bad for you?

Say it with us: Sunscreen is FRIEND, not FOE. We get it - being conscious of what you’re putting on your skin is totally your right - even responsibility! But the dangers of skin cancer (as well as the less vital, but entirely important anti-ageing concerns!) far outway any potential concerns there. Further - our Clean Beauty category is SUPER stringent - so you can be sure there are no nasties in these hallowed halls.

Fantastic, love it.

I have sensitive skin and HATE the feeling of sunscreen. This product is light-weight, doesn't get greasy with heat and doesn't have an offensive smell. It does give a white sheen to the face, but can be covered easily with foundation.
Love that is it ethical, vegan and locally made also.

Very Thick and Heavy

This is a thick, heavy formula that leaves greasy residue on the skin. It works ok as a body sunscreen but it is too heavy for the face. I have dry skin and it is greasy on me, I imagine it would be even worse for someone with oily skin.

you got a friend in me

As with any physical SPF there’s going to be a slight whitening effect, I found it to be quite minimal with this product and it bends / drys without a trace (I have a fair-medium skin tone).
I also have combination blemish prone skin and if anything I feel like my breakouts reduced after I started using this which has not been my experience with previous sunscreens.
