  • Sweet's top picks for clean sunscreen that WORKS!  

😎What does that SPF number mean anyway?

Consider the time YOU would normally burn in the sun WITHOUT protection. Usually, around 20 minutes will produce redness on a light-colored skin; while darkest tones will begin to sustain damage around 75-90 minutes.

Multiply this number by the SPF of your product.

EXAMPLE: An SPF 15 product x 20 minutes of sun time = 300. This is how many minutes you can stay in the sun without burning IF you have applied the product correctly.

REMEMBER: Re-apply after swimming, serious sweating or toweling off, regardless of the time you've calculated!

We've tried a LOT of varieties in search of non-greasy, easy-to-use, long-lasting products that actually WORK.

2.  Alba Botanica Clear Mineral Sunscreen: Great for your face during outdoor activities. No rubbing in white stuff!

3.  Alba Botanica Hawaiian Sunscreen:  In general, cream sunscreens offer more consistent coverage and less waste, and your kids aren't potentially inhaling ingredients.  But sometimes, you need a quick option! This is our go-to spray-on sunscreen.  It's 100% vegetarian with biodegradable ingredients and is water-resistant up to 80 minutes.  Still, watch your SPF time, and remember to always reapply after toweling off!
