By Tonya Brisnehan | Updated early 2016 - More and more concern has gone into sunscreens with chemical additives - but what is available for those with natural and organic ingredients? Here is info on this year's best natural suncreen and sunblock products...
These sunscreens are designed for ultimate protection against the damages of too much sunshine. Sure, vitamin D is a great thing, but an overabundance of those beneficial sunny rays can be harmful. There are strong links between skin cancers and overexposure to sunshine, so a good, strong sunscreen is important.
It is a common misconception that you only need sunscreen when the weather is super sunny. Not true. Sunshine pierces through gray skies and clouds, and it can be just as damaging to your skin on a cloudy day as it is on a sunny day.
The following 3 among the best natural organic sunscreens are protective anytime, everywhere.
Alba Botanica Hawaiian Aloe Vera Sunscreen (SPF 30)
This sunscreen smells WOW, like you would imagine the brightest, most beautiful flowers in Hawaii would smell.
Ranked at SPF 30, this sunscreen has extreme water resistance for 80 minutes, making it a go-to for swimmers who love splashing around in outdoor pools, rivers, lakes, and oceans.
As for organic ingredients, this sunscreen combines the nourishing benefits of sunflower oil, the protective elements of tropical fruit extracts, and the healing abilities of aloe vera.
Yep, pure protection perfection!
Goddess Garden Sunny Natural Sunscreen (SPF 30)
Goddess Garden…the name, to me, conjures images of Grecian goddesses, basking in sparkling pools, warm but well-protected from the sunshine.
It makes me want to be a goddess. Ha! What a spa weekend that would be. But I digress.
This sunscreen is wow-worthy because, while there are protective benefits, it packs an extra wallop of nourishing sunflower oils to hydrate, soften, and smooth your skin.
It lasts for 40 minutes of swimming and strolling.
Kiss My Face—Face Factor Sunscreen for Face and Neck (SPF 50)
I love this sunscreen brand because the name is adorable, but intimate.
It describes the relationship that your skin has with protective, natural creams, like sunscreen. It also describes the after effects—lots of kisses on smooth, unblemished, well-taken care of skin.
Yes, this particular sunscreen is marketed for your face and neck, but you can really use it anywhere on your body.
Rated at an SPF 50, this sunscreen protects your skin, while encouraging a natural, healthy glow—courtesy of the natural vitamins and minerals packed inside every dollop.
