Supergoop Skin Soothing Mineral Sunscreen: $16

This mineral sunscreen with SPF 40 is one of our top picks for sensitive skin types. It goes on so smooth and literally feels like moisturizer, and doesn't have the heavy white or tacky feeling that most mineral sunscreens have. It also contains olive polyphenols to calm redness and it works really well under makeup.

Albeit on the pricey side, this Cool Creme Organic Sunscreen is like dripping your face with silk. It's an oil-free, super light and airy formula with non-nano Zinc oxide along with supercharged antioxidants to protect and soothe.

Alba Botanica Sensitive Mineral Sunscreen: $15

Alba is definitely our fave grocery store SPF brand. You can find it in the aisles at healthy stores like Whole Foods and you can't beat the price or the sun protection. Our fave is this Sensitive Mineral SPF 30 that sprays clear, is ocean and reef friendly, and has a water resistance of 85 minutes, so you can enjoy all the ocean time you want.

Green Goddess Organics Baby SPF 30 Mineral Sunscreen Pump Spray: $18

If it's good enough for baby, than you betcha it's safe enough for sensitive skin! We love shopping in the baby SPF aisle, and this Green Goddess Organics SPF 30 comes in a convenient pump spray, which is also much better for the environment than an aerosol. The coverage is great and it's perfect for the whole fam.

From the SPF brand that you know and love, Neutrogena recently launched their new mineral zinc formula with Purescreen, which is naturally sourced 100% zinc oxide technology, and it's free from the other harmful skin irritants often found in SPFs like phthalates, parabens and dyes.
