Aubrey Organics Natural Sun SPF 30+ Sunscreen

Looking for a strong sunscreen that is  more natural ? Aubrey Organics Natural Sun SPF 30+ might be just for you.  These are heavy,  physical/ mineral based SPFs .

They have  Zinc Oxide and  Titanium Dioxide, so are stable, and as I said,  physical sunscreens. I don't get a whit-ish cast but they are thick and white . They blend easily so you lose the whiteness fast and the tackiness goes away in about a half hour and then skin feels pretty dry. They provide UVA/UVB and are SPF 30+ . 

These are thick, slighty sticky sunscreens so you will feel them on skin. They are not the best choice for every day wear but that's what makes them good for outdoor activites like gardening, lounging poolside or the softball game. They will hold up better in hot conditions and so far this holiday weekend have done the job for me.

The 2 formulas are Tropical Scent and Green Tea. Both have similar scents, which are also both very light. It's not a Hawaiian Tropic type scent but a light herbal fragrance that fades fast for those who don't want a lot of fragrance.

Green Tea has organic matcha tea and 11 % zinc oxide and 6.3% titanium dioxide .  Tropical Scent has 12 % zinc oxide and 5.8 % titanium dioxide.  Both have shea butter and various organic oil emollients  like jojoba and macadamia nut oils.

Retail is $ 15.95 but currently they are on sale at the company website. You should also be able to find these at Whole Foods, Vitamin Shoppes and your local natural food store.
