Best mineral sunscreen

When it comes to your face, you already know that daily sunscreen is essential to shield your skin from sunburn, skin cancer and premature aging.

But if you're not using a mineral sunscreen, with the right concentration of active ingredients, you're probably getting less protection than you think!

Of the 16 different sunscreen filters used in the US, the FDA regards ONLY the mineral ones—zinc oxide and titanium dioxide—to be "GRASE" (Generally Recognized As Safe and Effective). The other, chemical sunscreen filters (including avobenzone, oxybenzone, octocrylene and ecamsule) were recently delisted.

Also consider that zinc oxide is the single most effective ingredient available for filtering out UVA rays. Not only does UVA account for more than 90 percent of the UV light that reaches our skin, it is also highly carcinogenic and the culprit behind sun-related skin damage.

That's why I've put together the ultimate guide to the best mineral sunscreens, and how to choose the right one for you.

Whether you prefer sheer or tinted, matte or dewy, there are more mineral formulas to choose from than ever before!

What to Look for in a Mineral Sunscreen

Before we take a look at my product picks, here are the most important considerations when choosing a facial sunscreen. (My sunscreen ingredients tutorial covers these in more detail!)

  • High in zinc oxide: To get full broad-spectrum protection from both UVA and UVB, you have two choices. You can look for a formula that contains at least 20 percent zinc oxide on its own. Alternatively, a combination of 15 to 20 percent zinc oxide along with at least five percent titanium dioxide will be equally effective.
  • Low in PUFAs: Oils with a high proportion of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) are easily oxidized in UV light, releasing free radicals and triggering cellular damage. So they shouldn't be present in high quantities—I avoid them in the first five ingredients, which typically make up about 80 percent of a product. (Note: If the ingredients are listed in alphabetical order, there's no way to gauge the concentration, so I've excluded such products from this guide.)
  • Low in fragrance: Since they're a common cause of irritation, fragrances and essential oils are best to be avoided or at least limited, especially if you have sensitive skin. 
  • Low in silicones: Although it's a matter of personal preference rather than safety or efficacy, I prefer to avoid silicones because they congest and dehydrate my skin (not to mention I dislike how they look and feel!). 
  • Water-resistant: If you plan to swim or sweat a lot, you may want a water-resistant sunscreen. Just keep in mind that many brands don't make this claim, even if their products are water-resistant, because they have to pay to perform the test.
  • Reef-safe: Mineral sunscreen ingredients will not do damage to coral reefs. 

To make your shopping decisions easier, I've noted which of these features are applicable to the products below, along with their cruelty-free status.
