Not only do we advocate for properly wearing sunscreen to protect yourself, but we also want to give you our list of sunscreens that are much less harmful to the environment. You can click on the product link to get more details on each item.

1. Best for active travelers: Think Sport

Think Sport is a great option, especially if you plan on partaking in rigorous water activities like scuba diving or snorkeling, due to its lasting power.

2. Best organic option: Badger Balm

Badger Balm is a great choice, not only because it’s organic, but it’s also clear!

3. Best for body and coral: All Good

This option is a great balance of protection for both your body as well as corals. They also offer a tinted option, so it won’t leave behind that annoying white residue.

4. Best for portability: Olita Mineral

This option comes in a 3-ounce stick, meaning you can drop it in your carry-on and be ready to hit the beach!
