Natural Sunscreen Has Come a Long Way, and We Have the Proof

If the words “natural sunscreen” conjure nothing but dollops of chalky gloop in your mind’s eye, we’d like to be the first to deliver this exciting news: skin care companies realized this, and they fixed it. Yep, gone are the days when even the best natural sunscreens were impossible to rub in and you had to spend your summer covered in sticky white residue while wondering if it was even working.

Brands from Green People and Juice Beauty to Suntegrity and Coola are all now offering up the latest innovation in mineral suncare, with endless options of creams, milks, lotions and sprays carrying protection as high as broad-spectrum SPF 50+. Many have got the vegan life covered too by eliminating ingredients such as honey and beeswax.
