Our a/b tests have been stringent, and we really know what mineral sunscreens are effective, rub in well, and last a long time.
Of all those well over 100 choices, we only have about a dozen that we love and this brand is one of them.
If you’re looking for one of the best natural sunscreens, you’re in the right place!
As you’ll read in the full review below, this zinc oxide sunscreen covers all the bases and keeps your family safe from sunburn. It uses pristine ingredients to the highest standard, goes on smooth, and actually lasts.
If you’d like to see how it stacks up against other natural mineral sunscreen brands that use reef-safe zinc oxide, then head over to my ultimate guide to natural mineral sunscreens for the complete list of safe sunscreen reviews.

Ease of Application: OrganiBlock goes on really easily and rubs in smoothly. It could even be in the running for a daily SPF moisturizer for the face.
Scent: Has a very pleasant citrus and vanilla scent that most people have enjoyed.
Water Resistance: This is where OrganiBlock might not perform as well. So I would recommend it more for adults than busy, active families. My daughter definitely got too pink on the OrganiBlock side versus another sunscreen after time in the pool. Because we have tested OrganiBlock versus nothing at all, we know that it does offer protection from the sun, but perhaps it’s not as waterproof or maybe just not as strong as it claims to be.
My Experience: We tested OrganiBlock quite extensively; and although we all love putting it on, I would rate it guessed as an SPF 15 and no higher. Great for casual wear, but not for anything too intense like a day at the pool or the beach.
Star Feature: Clean ingredients and pleasant scent.
My Review: OrganiBlock has a lot going for it on paper, with great ingredients including non-nano zinc oxide. We were all impressed with how smoothly it went on, but it just didn’t hold up against a lot of other brands. I would not recommend this for busy families, but again, perhaps for adults who want something that goes on really smoothly and don’t need a very high SPF number.
- Goes on smoothly
- Very clean ingredients
