Our Favorite Mineral Based Sunscreens
It's finally SUMMER and we're jumping in to our summer safety series with our sunscreen round up. Check out our most favorite , safe and effective mineral based suncreens. Mineral based sunscreens are just as effective and much safer than traditional sunscreens made from harmful chemicals. Mineral based sunscreens use two natural minerals, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, as their active ingredience. The minerals sit on the top of the skin and reflect UV rays rather than absorbing rays through chemical reations like traditional suncreens. Mineral based sunscreens have been a round for a few years but have drastically improved in availability and price point.
1. Beautycounter Sunscreen, starting at $20
Why we love it? Beautycounter sunscreens are mineral based, tear free, water resistant formulated with non-nano zinc oxide and California Poppy. They're super lightweight, not cakey, and don't leave a heavy residue that takes more than one shower to shed.
