This sunscreen has won a ton of certificates and awards including the Winner of Redbook Award for Best Sunscreen and Prevention Natural Beauty Award.

It’s nontoxic, and mineral-based, with non-nano zinc oxide. It will stay on and protect for up to 80 minutes while in the water or sweating. It is unscented and hypoallergenic, so it’s great for people with sensitivities or allergies. It contains loads of soothing, anti-inflammatory botanicals to soothe even the most sensitive skin. No synthetic fragrances or dyes and it’s gluten-free.

It sprays white initially but dries clear. This is a great alternative and less expensive than the Coola sunscreen spray we recommend.

We believe that sunscreens with natural ingredients that are aerosol or spray are OK if you take precautions. Avoid spraying on your face and avoid inhaling. Use a cream for the face. Also “Reapply” often, they don't always spread as even as a cream.

This sunscreen meets the "Reapply" standard and marks off on all our requirements.
