An all-natural sunscreen with SPF 30 UVA/UVB protection. This body cream uses a new generation of mineral sunscreens for broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection. Infused with green tea, organic shea butter, and soothing cucumber, this luxurious formula works to hydrate, nourish, and protect.
Lavanila’s The Healthy Sun Screen SPF 30 Body Cream is one of several suncare products the company offers. It’s marketed as being hydrating as well as sun-protecting. Keep reading for my thoughts and for more photos.
This sunscreen comes in an opaque squeeze tube, which helps keep the product sanitary and protected from sun exposure (which degrades the active ingredients inside). The cap screws on. This packaging makes it easy to control how much product you dispense, though I wish it had a flip-open cap to make use more convenient.
This sunscreen’s formula doesn’t have that classic sunscreen smell–it doesn’t really smell like anything and, importantly, doesn’t contain any fragrance in the ingredients. The formula is creamy without being overly thick. This sunscreen doesn’t leave an oily or greasy finish either. It, of course, leaves a slight sheen on the skin, but otherwise sinks in and feels pleasant.
Most importantly, this sunscreen provides full-spectrum sun protection, guarding the skin against both UVA and UVB rays via the active ingredient Zinc Oxide. As an added bonus, Zinc Oxide can serve as an anti-irritant and helps hydrate the skin.
Overall, this is a great sunscreen for the body because it effectively protects your skin against both aging and burning while maintaining a pleasant-to-wear formula. I will note that this formula isn’t durable enough to withstand high-exposure sports (it doesn’t seem to keep me fully sunburn-free when I use it consistently during rock climbing). So don’t rely on it for sports where you have direct exposure to the sun for more than a few hours or for sports involving water. But for everyday wear, it will do a great job at keeping your skin protected.
