Looking for a reef-safe sunscreen that uses only zinc oxide as an active ingredient? Good idea! Chemical sunscreen is harmful to humans and to the environment, so it’s worth seeking out a brand that is safe.
My family has tested over 100 natural mineral sunscreens over the last 10 years, so we know what really works. I haven’t tried this particular brand, but I’ll share my thoughts about the ingredient list here. 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.
Tropic Skincare Sun Balm
Tropic Skincare is one people often ask about out of the UK. The ingredients are pretty good, titanium dioxide in the SPF 30 and above, and they don’t have to list percentage of active ingredients I guess, so it’s hard to compare from afar. But if you live in the UK and have trouble sourcing others, this one would be good to try in my opinion. If you do, let me know how it goes on!

I organized alllll the sunscreens we reviewed in each one’s recommendation category – one page, at-a-glance to find out what is safe to buy AND works! Print it or save to your phone for reference!
