Our baby-friendly sunscreen uses 100% mineral, non-nano zinc oxide for broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection that works for the whole family. This lightweight, fast-absorbing, non-sticky formula rubs in easily (no ghostly white cast—seriously!), protecting from the sun’s harmful rays. Plant extracts also moisturize and calm the effects of infrared—the type of light that causes skin to heat up—to keep baby’s skin comfortable. And because our sunscreen goes on sheer and is made with non-comedogenic ingredients (i.e., they won’t clog pores), moms love it for themselves, too.

Also available in Travel size.

Mineral Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50

Clean ingredients you can trust

Safely protects from the sun

Instead of risky chemical UV absorbers like oxybenzone and octinoxate (ingredients that can damage reefs and marine life), we use reef-friendly, non-nano zinc oxide to provide broad-spectrum protection. Not only that, we obsessively tested it to make sure it actually rubs in and disappears on skin (for real!).


Cools and calms

Wild gooseberry extract helps calm the effects of infrared light, which can heat and irritate baby’s delicate skin—while plant-derived antioxidant bisabolol calms irritation and moisturizes.


Replenishes what they’re born with

Squalene is a skin-moisturizing superhero all babies are born with, but it depletes over time. Our stable version, renewable, sugarcane-derived squalane, helps sunscreen glide on, adding weightless moisture to help bring natural balance to the skin.

Great for dry skin

Reviewing this as a face sunscreen! I had such high hopes for this sunscreen because of all the instagram ads I kept seeing about it leaving no white cast and it's "clean" ingredients. For context, I have sensitive skin that's very reactive to fragrance and essential oils. I also have normal to dry skin that is very acne prone. And I also have eczema :) Needless to say, my skin has very high standards. When I initially put this on the first thing that struck me was how oily it was. Given that squalane is the third ingredient I was sort of expecting this but, still, it was pretty greasy. It went on pretty easily and didn't have to be worked in too much I also didn't notice too much balling up around the hair line, but there were some parts that I had to use a tapping motion to blend in, particularly between my eyebrows, around my nose, and a bit around my mouth. I also think that's why the ads showed that it was so easy to blend into the skin because of how oily the formulation is. So if you have oily skin, you will probably hate this. But if you have dry skin, you may like this formula. Let's talk about the white cast. It's not the worst, but, given the amount of sunscreen you're actually supposed to use, it will leave a slight cast. I have olive to tan skin, so it's not super noticable on me, but you can definitely still see it. The ads literally show people using the smallest amount, which is not sufficient sun protection, and that's why there's no cast left on them. Lastly, we need to talk about the reapplication. I am someone that reapplies my sunscreen at least once throughout the day, usually 2-3 hours after my first application. If we didn't have to quarantine I'd probably reapply twice. I was afraid to reapply because of how oily the formula is and thought that the second application would cause pilling. Well, I was right and, even though the balls aren't super big and not that noticable, it did reactivate the pilling in my problem areas (eyebrows, nose, mouth), so I had to do a tapping motion to blend them out. Overall I think this is a good sunscreen for people with dry to very dry skin. It's oily when you put it in but if you have dry skin that tends to drink up everything you put in your face (like me) that goes away and it looks really nice and fresh on. There is a learning curve with application and reapplication, which is why I took off a couple stars, but I would still repurchase for those cold winter months where my skin is really dry.

Ok

It’s nice but it leaves a purple/white cast. It kinda has a scent to it but it’s not bad.

Not Bad

I like it has high percentage of zinc oxide but it has a sticky feeling on my face.

Great! I love the body lotion! It is amazing. I was not expecting a product with such quality. I will definitely be ordering again from you. I plan on trying the body wash next. I hope that the quality is the same as the body lotion.

Sunscreen was alright. Wish it didn’t leave a sheen on my skin but appreciate that it doesn’t have fragrance.
