Mineral Sunscreen Review: ECO Logical Skin Care

Looking for a reef-safe sunscreen that uses only zinc oxide as an active ingredient? You’re making a smart choice!

Natural Mineral Sunscreens that are good but not great. Over 100 brands tested by one family.

My family has tested over 100 natural mineral sunscreens over the last 10 years, so we know what really works. This brand is pretty good, but in my opinion, if you’re looking for the cleanest ingredients and smoothest application, then head over to my ultimate guide to natural mineral sunscreens and grab one of my top recommended zinc oxide sunscreens instead. My standards are really high though, so this one is still pretty good. 🙂

You can read all the details below to find out why this safe sunscreen brand did not make my top recommended list.

ECO Logical Skin Care: Baby, Body and Face Sunblocks


HUGE Natural Sunscreen Review (updated every year) - Which One is Right For You? Find the very safest that won't make you look like Casper the Friendly Ghost or be super annoying to apply.Price: 2017 price estimate: ~$13-$15 (1.8 oz. face) OR ~$13-$18 (3.5 oz. baby) OR ~$19-21 (5.3 oz. body)
EWG rating: 1 for all formulas (listed under “eco skin care” not “eco logical”)
SPF: 30+
Active ingredient(s): zinc oxide (22%) non-nano
Antioxidants added: green tea extract and grape seed oil
Ease of application: + Our whole family really likes this product and how well it goes on. It’s very thick, which is actually kind of nice, but it rubs in quite nicely.
Scent: fairly neutral, although son doesn’t love it, probably because it has no added fragrances.
Water resistant? Yes! Water beads up visibly so nicely, and it definitely stays on a long time in the water.
My experience: When I emailed ECO logical to ask for a sample for summer 2011, they replied “hold the presses!” They assured me I would love the product. Skeptical of such claims, of course, I was still happy to have a company work with me so readily. Well. ECO logical is by far my favorite brand of this summer’s field. The baby version seems expensive in comparison, so I’d go with the “body” for everyone myself. I highly recommend ECO. UPDATE 2012: I learned why the baby version is more expensive – there are 3 pricey ingredients added: avocado and carrot oils for the delicate infant skin, and frankincense, a natural skin antiseptic. Some moms even use the baby Eco on diaper rashes.
Star Feature: the company is very committed to education, community, sustainability – ECO stands for “Environmentally Conscious Origins.” Plus, their product is great! UPDATE 2012: “ECO was named the exclusive sunscreen of The Surfrider Foundation ( a globally recognized advocate for marine and beach ecology (over 50,000 members worldwide!). We believe so strongly in their mission that we’ve pledged to donate up to 3% of our net revenues to support them.” Wow, I’m liking this company more and more!
