While Weston A. Price Foundation experts argue that sun exposure without sunscreen is safe and beneficial to health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention asserts that spending long hours in UVA and UVB rays calls for coverage of at least SPF 30. If you want to ditch chemical sunscreens—those with oxybenzone and octinoxate can affect marine life—and opt for a mineral formula, here are a few of our faves.
