Even with all the eco-friendly sunscreens on the market these days, it’s hard to find one that covers all my criteria. My favorite sunscreens are safe with no harmful chemicals, effective for long-time everyday wear, good for both babies legs and adult faces, and not splotchy, gloppy, or leaving thick white streaks. After a test run it looks like Miessence Reflect Outdoor Balm has all the bases covered.
A water-free nourishing balm with natural minerals that help reflect damaging ultraviolet radiation, Miessence outdoor balm sunscreen isn’t diluted like conventional brands so a little goes a long way.
Zinc oxide offers protection from harmful rays while organic olive oil keeps the skin supple. Potent antioxidants including natural vitamin E, beta carotene and polygonum extract, protect the skin from premature aging and prevent damage caused by the elements. It also smells a bit like coconut, and not in a synthetic smell kind of way!
Miessence outdoor balm sunscreen lists its SPF as 15 but technically tests up to 27. (Due to regulations in Australia for SPF ratings, ONE Group would have to have this product manufactured in a licensed SPF facility instead of their own manufacturing plant to claim an SPF higher than 15.)
