Top Five orGLAMic Sunscreens

If getting fried on Memorial Day weekend or fellow blogger Raylene Bartolacci’s post on the effects of sun damage didn’t scare you – then you should be inspired to wear sunscreen this summer and all year long because it is the orGLAMic things to do!  Taking care of your body, inside and out, is super-chic and there is no better way than to do it with these Top Five orGLAMic Sunscreens.  Seychelles to Santa Barbara – the sun’s rays got nothin’ on you!

Josie Maran Cosmetics

If supermodel Josie Maran’s skin is any indication, Argan Protect SPF 40+ Natural Daily Sun Protection is a year-round must-have item.  Blocking both UVA and UVB rays, this lightweight formula can easily be worn under makeup, even acting a perfect primer. It is infused with Josie’s favorite, argan oil, which repairs and reverses sun damage, fights sign of aging, and improves skin tone for a radiant, renewed complexion.

Juice Beauty

Because more than just your face needs daily attention, Juice Beauty offers a Green Apple SPF 20 Antioxidant Body Moisturizer.  This lightweight formula combines broad-spectrum SPF with peptides, DMEA, alpha lipoic acid, coenzyme Q10 and a fruit acid complex to keep skin young looking and diminish the appearance of fine lines.  Like all Juice Beauty products, this formula contains their patented, anti-oxidant rich, organic juice base among other potent natural ingredients.


On the 2010 The Environmental Working Group’s best sunscreens list, Badger provides a variety of options for eco- and health-conscious sunscreen.  This organic, physical-barrier sunscreen uses zinc oxide to provide UVA and UVB protection and is even naturally water resistant.  The new unscented version, pictured above, is my personal orGLAMic pick.

Soleo Organics

Also on the Environmental Working Group’s list, Soleo Organics is made in Southern California from a man who knows his sun well.  This orGLAMic company provides sunscreen that is free of any chemical UV-absorbers, titanium dioxide or synthetic preservatives.  The organic, water resistant formula is biodegradable and won’t irritate even the most sensitive skin (perfect for that fifth day out in San Tropez.)


This 100% natural, SPF 20 sunscreen has no chemicals, additives, PABAs or other harmful toxins.  The combination of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide provide broad-spectrum protection for your skin without leaving a white residue, the supercharged anti-aging ingredient argan oil acts as an age-defying moisturizer.  An orGLAMic combo indeed!
