Organic Bunny Approved SPF

With SO many different clean SPF options to choose from in the Organic Bunny store, I realized that it just might be tricky to pick out the best SPF for you so in an effort to make SPF shopping a little bit easier on you, I will break down my top picks by category!

The best part of every SPF you will see below is that it is Reef-Friendly, Non-Nano and entirely mineral-based which means there are no yucky toxins to worry about being on you or your family. Remember that because these use minerals to block the sun instead of chemicals that absorb into your skin, they need to be thoroughly cleansed off with a gel-based cleanser after each use. I suggest using the Aleavia Facial Cleanser to effectively get your SPF off each day.

Best SPF Under Makeup

Looking for an SPF that sits nicely under your makeup? Check out my faves!

If you are looking for a great, everyday SPF that sits great under makeup, my top choice would be the Babo Botanicals SPF40 as it applies totally sheer, has no scent, and best of all, does not leave my makeup melting off by hour 2. This has a more lotion-like, semi-dewy feel and finish so I actually love how this feels on my skin. Not too thick, not too thin, just right and great for those with just about any skin type or tone!

Looking for a daytime moisturizer that gives glowing, healthy-looking skin and protects against the effects of daytime stress? Check out this day cream by Vooqo! This formula minimizes the appearance of fine lines, boosts skin’s radiance, and provides the skin with full-spectrum protection against UVA/UVB/UVC plus SPF of 15 to 20. It contains Grapeseed and Agave stem cell technology to enhance cellular metabolism and is powered by probiotics (Rosehip and Ginkgo Biloba) to target revitalizing and antioxidant action to where your skin needs it most.

For those with dry or sensitive skin, the Suntegrity SPF30 Moisturizing Primer is a great option! It is a facial moisturizer, primer + SPF 30, all in one! It applies totally clear, and is amazing for preventing sunburns and damage, all while keeping the skin soothed and calm. This non-greasy formula is super light with a citrusy scent, suitable for Vegans and those with sensitive skin! You simply apply this under makeup in place of your AM moisturizer or you can wear it alone if you prefer not to wear any foundation but still want SPF protection. It works great worn either way!

Best Tinted Moisturizers with SPF

Love SPF moisturizers with a slight tint to them? Check out my fave!

For those that LOVE the dew, my top pick is the Suntegrity 5-in-1 tinted moisturizer! This comes in 4 shades and will actually treat your all while adding the perfect amount of color to leave your skin looking flawless! Made with ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, Red Algae, Organic Aloe, Jojoba, and Cucumber this keeps the skin calm and soothed making it perfect for those with acne, rosacea, or melasma! I personally love this because it leaves my skin not only looking healthy but truly feeling health as well. Most people over-apply this but you only need a small amount and it should be worn as a tinted lotion, not a foundation! Not sure your shade? I wear the LIGHT option, however, we can color match you at any time- info@theorganicbunny.com

Best Powder SPF

Looking for an effortless way to get your SPF on each day? Try a powder SPF!

Great for over makeup or the scalp, these Brush on Block powders come in a tinted color or translucent, both applying easy breezy with SPF 30 protection! Many people know they need to re-apply SPF every 2 hours, but almost never do so this product solves that problem. Got makeup on? Simply tap more of this on as needed for your protection.

Best Body Lotion SPF for Adults

Looking for a way to protect larger portions of your body? Check out my top pick!

I am obsessed with the Suntegrity Natural Mineral SPF for the body, and have been for quite some time! It applies white at first but if you have a lotion under, this really can be spread on easily and totally sheer. This comes in two sizes a 3 and 5 ounce and is a must-have beach bag item in my opinion! Besides providing a super clean, Non-Nano Zinc Oxide UVA and UVB protection, this sunscreen is also made with nourishing Organic ingredients like Green Tea Extract, Cucumber and Pomegranate Seed Oil for added protection. This is my favorite for a day at the beach or jog when I want an easy lotion-like application! They also just came out with tinted sun sticks which are awesome too!

Another SPF that I love for neck, chest, arms & body is the Clear Zinc SPF by Babo! This natural sunscreen is non-nano, reef-safe, non-greasy and safe enough for babies or kids too!

Best SPF Foundation

Thank goodness for Suntegrity, as you can see, they make pretty much everything one could want or need for SPF protection, including their brand new mineral matte foundation Impeccable Skin! This is literally the best SPF foundation there ever was, truly giving your skin that airbrushed finish, and the best part is, girls apply it with their hands and it still looks amazing. Great for vacations, a day at the beach, or just out with friends, this has semi-matte coverage you will be blown away by! I am the shade BUFF but if you need a color match, email us at info@theorganicbunny.com

Best SPF For Outdoor Activities

Whether it be on your next jog or swim, here are my favorite SPFs that hold up great when up against sweat, tears, or water!

Suntegrity just released their brand new SPORT Mineral Sun Stick, perfect for those more active outdoor people! This comes in small or large size and is water-resistant for up to 80 minutes! I love these sticks because they glide on very smoothly, feeling almost like body butter with SPF and they can be used on your hands, face, chest, shoulders, or full body! Another super popular option is the Babo Sheer Mineral SPF which is a spray-on SPF50! This lightweight, hypoallergenic formula is enriched with organic Aloe Vera and Calendula to soothe and moisturize the skin.

For swimming or beach days, again the SPORT Mineral Sun Stick is perfect for those more active outdoor people! This comes in small or large size and is water-resistant for up to 80 minutes! They now offer the Sport Stick in tinted options like Light or Medium so you don’t have to worry about a white cast!

If you don’t plan on being in the water, I also love the Suntegrity Moisturizing Primer or their above Tinted Moisturizers. I find myself reaching for this face SPF when I am going on a hike or jog as it sits more lightweight and it is still long-lasting.

Best SPF for Kids

One of my favorite SPF choices for kids is the Babo Botanicals collection as they make a ton of great, kid-friendly options in various application methods! Another easy choice is Suntegrity as it can be used by the entire family (babies 6+ months and up)! Their Sport Mineral Lotion is great for larger areas or their Sticks make it super easy to apply onto your hands first and then on them. They also make smaller stick sizes making it easy for little faces and touch-ups on the go! ☀️

  1. Thank you for the blog! What about Triethoxycaprylsilane? That is a silicon coating they use for the zinc oxide. Do you have any information on the safety of that ingredient? Thank you 🙂
