This is not your mother's sunscreen. A generation ago, sunscreens blocked UV rays by using physical barriers like titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. While these natural compounds were highly effective, the lotions often felt chalky and thick and were hard to spread. As sunscreen technology progressed, chemical compounds were developed to absorb UV rays rather than reflect them. Avobenzone, octinoxate, and Mexoryl SX make for effective, light, comfortable sunscreens, but these chemicals can sometimes irritate sensitive skin. If you're worried about the health risks of chemical sunscreens or want to avoid skin reactions, these chemical-free and organic physical blocks, made to be more comfortable and easier to use than ever, are the best bets for natural, safe, soothing sun protection.
