Alba Botanica

In a similar fashion to Neutorgena’s push to give consumers power over their skincare, Alba Botanica seeks to make high quality skin protection specifically without compromising the health of coral reefs. They specifically advertise themselves as not containing the two “Bad O’s” of the sunscreen world and the fragrance free version specifically is an excellent option for the ecologically conscious skincare enthusiast.

Alba Botanica got some pushback years ago for purportedly changing their formula and including some irritants for the sake of scent. As of 2020 they hold the second highest rating the EWG can give a sunblock, and seem to have figured out an awesome product that doest compromise on the health of their customers or the health of the ocean.
