Eight of the Top-Rated All-Natural Sunscreens to Slather On This Summer

Throw one of these into your beach bag as you head down to Cape Cod or the Islands.


It’s no secret that sunscreen is essential for protecting your skin—but what we often don’t realize is that conventional sunscreens can also be full of chemicals. So while we may be saving our skin, harmful ingredients may be getting absorbed into our bodies.

This summer, when you’re heading out to one of the best beaches in Massachusetts or a public pool around the city, throw one of these all-natural sunscreens into your bag. Best part? They’re the top-rated ones on Amazon, and they’re all under $30.

1. André Lorent Daily Rehydrating Sunscreen: SPF 30+

This sunscreen is paraben and fragrance free for those who are sensitive to scent. Ingredients like Vitamin E, C, Japanese Green Tea Extract, and more help to moisturize your skin, protect it from the sun, and provide anti-aging properties.

2. Miami Gorgeous SPF 30 Sunscreen Stick

For those who prefer stick sunscreens to creams, this is a great organic option. It’s sweat and water resistant and is safe for children and babies over six months. This stick is best as an option for face sunscreen, not body.
