Natural Alternatives To Toxic Sunscreens You Can Buy
If you’re environmentally-savvy, you may already know that there are natural alternatives to toxic sunscreens that you can buy. Most often, you’ll find these options in your local natural grocery store or health food store. You can also find some natural sunscreens at Amazon! Here’s a small sampling of what’s available:
- Sun Bum puts out an effective SPF 50 sun lotion suitable for kids and adults. It is free of parabens, oxybenzone and octinoxate, which are all known to harm coral reefs.
- I used an Alba Botanica SPF 45 sunscreen during a recent beach vacation, and this variety is tropical fruit-scented just for kids.
- If you prefer the ease of a spray-on sunscreen, try Hint Pineapple sunscreen spray with SPF 30. This is a compressed-air spray that is also water-resistant.
