There’s a lot to consider when you purchase a new sunscreen. What’s the formula? How high is the SPF? Will the ingredients make you break out? On top of this list of questions, however, is another very important factor: Chemicals. Chemical-free sunscreen may be a bit tougher to find, but considering the lengths we go to to use sunscreen and protect our skin from sun damage, we’d like to keep the chemicals from harming our skin in the process.
We love Alba’s all-natural products, and their chemical-free sunscreen is no exception. The mix of sunflower seed oils and aloe vera make this the perfect fragrance-free option for your dose of SPF.
