A Guide to the Best Mineral Sunscreens


Невыполнимая миссия по поиску натуральных кремов от загара для лета может поставить в тупик любого, когда на прилавках столько много разных вариантов. Спреи очень вредны при распрыскивании для людей и природы. Некоторые минеральные крема остаются белой маской. В других полно химии. Какие средства из моря продукции выбрала журналист WSJ после многочисленных проб читайте ниже. Главное, пользоваться кремом регулярно!

THE SOLAR SPECTRUM // Products We Tested and How They Fared

These Rubbed Us the Wrong Way…

Badger Balm Unscented Sunscreen Cream SPF 30 and Sunday Riley Cashmere Sunscreen SPF 30 F. Martin Ramin/The Wall Street Journal (2)

Badger Balm Unscented Sunscreen Cream SPF 30, $16, badgerbalm.com

Badger has a high EWG rating. It contains only a handful of ingredients, mostly organic. But even the improved formula has a thick consistency that's only suitable for those who spend hours in the water and people with extreme sun sensitivity. It kept me protected through a hike in the Arizona desert, but I was happy the only onlookers were my family, outdoorsy retirees and a shy Gila monster.

Sunday Riley Cashmere Sunscreen SPF 30, $125, nordstrom.com

This hydrating cream dries quickly with no residue. It contains no potentially irritating fragrance, and it's made by one of my favorite botanical-based lines. I applied it before a 2-hour-long Little League game and a quick dip in the pool and my skin stayed protected all day. But the glass bottle (recyclable, yes, but bad for the beach and travel) and the hefty price tag made me wince.

The Ones Worth Trying—If You're Very Pale, Very Rich or Both…

Radical Skincare Skin Perfecting Screen SPF 30 and MD Solar Sciences Mineral Tinted Crème Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 F. Martin Ramin/The Wall Street Journal (2)

Radical Skincare Skin Perfecting Screen SPF 30, $55, radicalskincare.com

Products from Radical Skincare—founded by two Southern California sisters to combat skin issues from rosacea to adult acne—are cult favorites at Barneys and high-end apothecary Space NK. The feather-light blend of titanium dioxide and zinc oxide made my skin look hydrated and subtly illuminated, even during the third hour of an outdoor school graduation ceremony.

MD Solar Sciences Mineral Tinted Crème Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30, $32,mdsolarsciences.com

This velvety cream is the star of the physician-developed line. The tinted formula is deep enough for dark skin but suitable for fairer tones. At $32 for a scant amount, it's on the pricey side. It protected my arms, chest and face for a 3-hour ride on the Santa Monica bike path, but there was scarcely enough left for a second application.

The Keepers…

Soleil Toujours Zinc Based Sunscreen Mist SPF 50, $36, soleiltoujours.com

Soleil Toujours is as innovative and user-friendly as sunscreen gets. Formulated with SPF-boosting EcoSun Complex, and without parabens, oxybenzone, retinyl palmitate, phthalates or synthetic fragrance, it's also as clean as sunscreen gets. The mist isn't as fine as other brands—a good thing, when it comes to inhalation. I used up my supply during a 3-day visit to Florida and was desperate for more.

La Roche-Posay Anthelios 50 Tinted Mineral Ultra Light Sunscreen SPF 50, $37,laroche-posay.us

French cosmetics giant La Roche-Posay revolutionized the sunscreen market eight years ago when it brought its potent Anthelios formulas to the U.S. market. This ultralight liquid is real next-level stuff. It's 100% mineral protection with a clean, matte finish, water-light consistency (a little goes a very long way), and the sheer tint offers light-diffusing coverage and a hint of golden color.

Hang Ten Mineral Sport Sunscreen SPF 30, $13, hangtensunscreen.com

Hang Ten, the recently launched lower-priced line from luxury organic label Coola, uses the same technology as the mother brand, but, to keep costs down, the sunscreen base isn't entirely organic. It does, however, use the smallest amount of chemicals without compromising performance. It's on the thick side, but one application lasted through an afternoon in the pool at the Ritz-Carlton in Tucson.

IS Eclipse Translucent Sunscreen SPF 50, $38, innovativeskincare.com

Even the most transparent of the lightweight zinc and titanium blends can leave a ghoulish cast on the skin, which is problematic for darker skin tones. IS Eclipse's translucent formula is sheer enough to disappear on fairer skin, and the flesh tone shades, PerfecTint Beige and PerfecTint Brown, offer hard-to-find and effective alternatives for deeper complexions.
