The Highest-Rated Nontoxic Sunscreens
We’ve come a long way since the days when oil dominated the sun-care scene. Now we get our tans from a bottle, stock up on oversize hats and slather on sunscreen at the mere mention of sunlight (thankfully). But you can still go a step further—replacing chemical-filled SPF for its nontoxic and all natural counterparts. If, like us, you don’t know where to start, let this list of the top-rated natural sunscreens be your guide.
ColoreScience Brush-on SPF 50
Highly reviewed on every website from Ulta to Amazon, this product is a fan favorite for people who are out and about in the sun. Just twist up and reapply the powder SPF right over your makeup. Many reviewers give serious kudos to this product for helping them avoid any breakouts or oily skin that lotion can sometimes cause.
Drunk Elephant Umbra Sheer SPF 30
Although new to the market, this product has racked up more than 3,000 “loves” on Sephora’s website due to its non-greasy formula. Many suggest it’s not quite as lightweight as others; it gets the sun-protection job done like a pro.

EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46
This is the pick when it comes to moisturizer with SPF, and over 2,500 reviewers on Amazon agree. Meant to help combat acne, rosacea and any hyperpigmentation, this formula actually clears and soothes skin while protecting from the sun.
Elta MD ($33)
Supergoop! Everyday SPF 50
If you spend a good chunk of your time in direct sunlight, this creamy lotion is your best bet. Reviewers like that it’s lightweight and dries quickly, but they love that it’s practically odorless. (Great for applying along with your daily moisturizer.)
Coola Unscented Sport SPF 50
When it comes to beach vacations, this is hands down the winner. Water-resistant, clear formula and quick drying time are just some of the reasons users love this spray.
Thinkbaby SPF 50+
If you’ve got little fingers and toes to protect, this extra-safe baby formula is the ticket. With just under 2,000 positive reviews on Amazon, fans love that its ingredient list is filled with all-natural and good-for-you names—from aloe to jojoba oil. It’s also gentle enough for delicate skin and eyes, and totally water-resistant for up to 80 minutes.
Coola Mineral Liplux SPF 30
Although oft overlooked, your lips are incredibly susceptible to sun damage. For the best, all-natural option that offers protection and a hint of color, beauty devotees turn to this tube from Coola. Offered in six sheer shades, the lip balm is a welcome dose of sun safe nourishment.
