At Vert, we always wear sunscreen, every day, every season. Come rain, cloud cover, or sunny days, these clean, reef-safe SPFs are our most-loved, and will be tried-and-true additions to your daily suncare routine.
When we research and source sun care products, we look for options that are free of toxic ingredients (think parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol, mineral oil, synthetic dyes, sulfates, nanoparticles and chemical UV absorbers) and healthy for our oceans.
When it comes to everyday use, both coated and uncoated zinc oxide work in sunscreens to help reflect or absorb the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays—their effects on the environment (and possibly humans) are what set them apart. In sunscreen, uncoated zinc oxide is a broad-spectrum protectant that sits on top of the skin, forming a protective physical barrier that protects from cancer-causing rays and a reef-friendly alternative. On the other hand, coated zinc oxide can be harmful when inhaled and is a significant contributor to the bleaching and death of coral reefs.
Below, you’ll find a lineup of safe formulations for every skin type and activity, from tinted serums to creamy and nourishing.
