  • Hello, thank you for your blog!! I am using the kimberly Sayer ultra light spf 30. It´s amazing beacuse it´s very light wihtout White effect. Does not Kimberly Sayer use really nanoparticles not micronized?

  • Really all this tips are great…Amazing tips!!!
    we can also go for sun protective swimwear is typically used in a highly intense UV environment ? at the beach or at the pool during summer. … UV protective swimwear that fully covers your shoulders and arms like swim shirts (and swim tights for legs) is the best choice for guaranteed all-day.

  • Hello, Can you think of any reason, other than the cost, not to use 100% red raspberry seed oil for sunscreen? Seems like this might be a very basic healthy organic sunscreen.

    • Hi Curtis,

      To be honest I am not sure if it will work because I wonder if it will stay put. I think it’s a great addition to a normal natural sunscreen but if it works on its own, well I guess we’ll have to try! Thanks for your question!

    • Hi Curtis,

      Following up on this, I added a paragraph to my article about why pure oils can not be used as sunscreen…

  • wow….finally a well explained article about sun screens!!! It’s been weeks since I started to look around to find a good organic sun protection for my “angry” skin. I think i will try the Eco by Sonya one, maybe in tinted version. btw, since i discovered the amazingy magazine, I read it every day now 😀 Thanks for the many useful info. Greetings from the south of Germany. Jo.

  • Great article!
    I have been looking for the best sunscreen to prevent melasma. I know physical filters are recommended for this problem. Wich sunscreen (brand) would you recommend?

    • Hi Sandra,
      Thank you! I’m glad you enjoyed it.

      Both Eco by Sonya and Eco Cosmetics are very good sunscreens, fully compliant with the latest EU standards and they both user mineral filters. It really is a matter of preference. If you are looking for a facial cream (a moisturizer) for your face, Kimberly Sayers are great!

      If you are simply looking for the best protection sunscreen, without questionable ingredients, which can also be used safely in swimming pools with chlorinated water, Eco by Sonya is your best bet, because they use non-coated, non-nana zinc oxide.

      Hope this helps!

      • Thanks Floris!
        I didnt know these brands, for sure very helpful!! It was difiicult for me to find natural sunscreens, I recently checked Photoderm MINERAL SPF 50+ – UVA 22, do you know about it?

        • You’re welcome Sandra. I checked the ingredients of the photoderm sunscreen for you, and was not impressed. It does contain mineral filters but it also contains lots of bad stuff, like silicons, which is the nr 1 pore clogger ingredient out there 🙂

  • Excellent article Floris!! A friend posted it on FB and I am so glad that I read it! For those of us who are trying to live as much of a “natural” life as possible, this is great information.
