5 Zero Waste Sunscreens for the Summer 🌞

Hey muffins! With the summer months comes lots of sun which leads to many sunburns (for me) if I'm not careful. 😬 I am about to use up the last of the aerosol sunscreens I had tucked away in my bathroom... That made me think - are there zero/low waste alternatives? And I found that there are a TON of products on the market that have a much smaller impact on the environment. As I assume you won't want to research about this yourself, I compiled a list of 5 sunscreens you should give a try! 😃

1. Taylor's Elevated - SUN! Natural Sunscreen ($11.99, 2 oz., SPF 30)

This product is not just all-natural, it comes in a glass container that is completely plastic-free (which is perfect since it is Plastic Free July!!). The sunscreen is also made in the US, which is perfect for any of my domestic followers. 😊

2. Butterbean Sunscreen ($12.50, 3 oz., SPF 30)

While this brand is targeted towards babies and kids, there is no reason why an adult can't use a nice zero waste sunscreen too! For less than double the price, you can get a larger 7 oz. container as well!

3. All Good Water Resistant Zinc Sunscreen ($9.99, 1 oz., SPF 50)

This sunscreen only uses 6 ingredients, which is definitely WAY less than those found in aerosols. The container is fully made out of tin, so it could be reused or recycled once the product is used up. 😊

4. Rare Earth Skincare Sun Cream ($10, 1 oz., SPF 20)

Advertised as a "sun cream", this sunscreen will not only protect your skin from the UV rays of the sun but will also give your skin the moisture it needs after a nice long day at the beach. This brand has a lot of other great zero waste products, so definitely check out their website!

5. Not the Norm Shade All-Natural Sunscreen ($4.72 USD, 0.5 oz, SPF 25)

Not the Norm's sunscreen has four different size options and is only made with four ingredients. The product itself is in a tin and is unscented (if that is an important attribute for you!). 🎉

  1. I'd literally never heard of no waste sunscreen and never really considered the containers sunscreens come in. I swear, I am learning so much from your blog. Thank you!
