The Best Natural Sunscreens for Summer-Loving Families

I am a firm believer that sunscreens should be designed for entire families – from babies to elders. Loving summer has no age restriction, and neither should the sunscreen we use to ward off harsh UV rays.  I am also a firm believer in using only the best - those created with natural ingredients rather than harboring harmful additives.

For the aforementioned reasons, I have compiled a short list of three awesome sunscreens – each one is perfect for every member of your family. You can swipe or spray on a good portion for a day at the beach or next to the swimming pool. Or, use a dollop as an extra precaution while you are catching up on yard work, or while your kiddos are running around in the backyard.

The three hand-picked, best of the best natural sunscreens are...


Alba Botanica Very Emollient Kids Sprays Sunscreen SPF 40

Formulated from an intermingling of all-natural botanicals, this sunscreen is marketed towards children (so sayeth the bottle), but in actuality, anyone in your family could use it.

The combination of natural vitamins and minerals absorb into your skin, building an innate protection against the harshness of too much sunshine. This means you and your babies can enjoy the warmth and beauty of summer, without the damaging sunburn that follows.

Additionally, this sunscreen is water-resistant for up to half an hour.


Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Sunscreen Stick SPF 30

One brand you can always count on is Burt’s Bees! Using all-natural ingredients, such as vanilla and beeswax, the Sunscreen Stick gives you the option of spot-targeting.

Safe for babies, toddlers, adults, and every one older or in-between, this sunscreen glides on over your lips, under your eyes, and in harder to reach areas where spray-on or slick sunscreen might miss.

For afternoon strolls in the sunshine with your favorite youngster, swipe a dollop across exposed skin and enjoy your summer’s day.


Kiss My Face Natural Mineral Sunscreen with Hydresia SPF 40

I love everything about Kiss My Face! For one, their name is adorable, and for two, they have consistently made amazing products, such as this all-natural sunscreen that overflows with essential antioxidants and minerals.

A dose of Hydresia lends this sunscreen an ultra-moisturizing element, eliminating blemishes, sun damage spots, and softening your skin.

For summer-loving families, this sunscreen has everything you could want. The ingredients are natural, and the fragrance is pleasant, reminiscent of paradise. SPF 40 gives you allover protection in the sunshine, while this is water-resistant for up to 45 minutes.
