Biodegradable Sunscreens With No Oxybenzone
We all love spending time in the sun or on the beach, but we also know that too much sun can be harmful to us. Sunblock helps, but many cheap and affordable sunscreens are also full of a lot of synthetic substances and chemicals that aren't good to absorb into our skin. If you want a natural sun block that offers SPF 30 UV protection and is chemical-free, then choose chemical free sunblock. With special lotions designed for use on the body and on the face in particular, our organic sunblock is 92% organic, the highest level of organic sunscreen available on the market right now. A little goes a long way, with each container offering long-lasting UV protection from the sun.

Best Waterproof Sunscreen for Kids, Babies & Allergies
You don't want your children absorbing a bunch of harmful chemicals and UV rays when they spend a day out in the sun. Our chemical free sunblock is made from 92% organic ingredients and contains no whiteners or oxybenzone, a potentially harmful sunscreen additive raising new concerns in the healthcare community. It is a common misconception that high SPF sunblocks offer the best UV protection. In fact, health experts have found that SPF 50 sunscreen gives you only a little more UV protection than SPF 30 but contains higher amounts of oxybenzone. Not just for little kids and babies, our limited ingredient natural sunscreen is also good for people with allergies and sensitive skin.
No Paraben, Benzophenone or PABA: Chemical Free Sunscreen
Sunblock is supposed to protect you from the harmful effects of the sun, but it is ridiculous how many bad chemicals are added to many sunscreens these days. What is paraben and why is it bad for you? Parabens are artificial chemicals used in many skin care products and more than 60% of sunscreen on the market. While still OK with the FDA, some health researchers have linked paraben to breast cancer and the development of reproductive abnormalities
Benzophenone is another sunscreen ingredient raising eyebrows among alternative health experts today. Benzophenone is also a UV blocker, but researchers have recently found a shocking pattern that links the development of endometriosis among women who used sunscreen that contains benzophenone.
Like oxybenzone and benzophenone, para-aminobenzoic acid, more commonly known as PABA, is another ultraviolet light absorber used in sunblock that has been known to cause allergic reactions. It is a good idea to avoid all sunscreen that includes PABA as an ingredient. We offer only no paraben and PABA free sunscreen without oxybenzone at MoreNature.
