Lavera Sunscreen

A sunscreen that’s free of hormone-disrupting chemicals.

It feels great to choose a sunscreen that’s free of hormone-disrupting chemicals – until you apply the stuff, at which point you are covered in the ghostly, telltale glow of zinc. If this drawback has kept you away from natural formulas in the past, we suggest you try this mineral-based, fragrance-free sunscreen from Lavera. With a fluid texture, it’s more of a spritzing lotion than a spray, and while it does leave an initial whitish haze that disappears quickly, it provides transparent, waterproof sun protection that will leave your hormones alone and your dignity mercifully intact. About $31 for a 6.6-ounce bottle at
