Finding a #skincare and #makeup compatible sunscreen can be a challenge, especially if you want one that is #crueltyfree. Luckily, I’m here to provide you with some #SPF information to help you make an informed choice!
There are two categories of SPF: mineral and chemical. Mineral sunscreens, also known as physical sunscreens, are better for sensitive skin but can feel heavier and leave a white cast on the skin. On the other hand, chemical sunscreens are clear and lightweight, but may not be as well-tolerated by sensitive skin.
If you’re looking for the best of both worlds, a hybrid sunscreen may be the solution. These sunscreens combine both chemical and physical filters to provide maximum protection while minimizing any drawbacks. Hybrid sunscreens are generally well-tolerated by sensitive skin and feel lightweight and elegant on the skin, without leaving a white cast.
It’s important to note that sunscreens do expire, so make sure to check the expiration dates on your products. Ultimately, choose a sunscreen that meets your skin’s unique needs, aligns with your personal preferences, and is something you’ll actually enjoy wearing and applying.
One sunscreen option to consider is the Cocokind Silk SPF. This lightweight sunscreen has a reduced white cast and is suitable for those with sensitive skin. It has been clinically tested and dermatologist reviewed to ensure it is non-irritating. The Cocokind Silk SPF is also vegan, cruelty-free, and gluten-free.
For those looking for a mineral-only SPF option, the Cocokind Daily SPF lotion is a great choice. This non-irritating sunscreen uses non-nano zinc oxide, blue phytoplankton, and microalgae to protect the skin from everyday stressors like UVA rays, UVB rays, and pollution. It also contains rice starch to leave a soft, dewy feel without any greasiness. The Cocokind Daily SPF lotion is fragrance-free and comes in a 1.7 oz size.
If you’re in need of lip protection, the Cocokind tinted lip shield SPF 24 is worth considering. This lip SPF not only protects against both UVA and UVB rays but also provides a flattering tint. It contains antioxidant-rich starfruit extract to moisturize and add an extra layer of protection. The lip shield also includes shea butter for added hydration.

Whether you choose a mineral, chemical, or hybrid sunscreen, protecting your skin from the sun is essential for maintaining its health and beauty.
Finding a skin compatible and makeup compatible sunscreen is an art and a science! And finding those not tested on animals can be frustrating. I’m here to help with skincare sunscreen SPF information! Here’s quick tutorial on sunscreens and their formulations and how it benefits your skin.
Active ingredients in sunscreens protect skin from UVa and UVB rays. SPF’s are in two categories: mineral and chemical. Mineral sunscreen, also called physical sunscreens, are better tolerated by sensitive skin types, but can make sunscreens feel heavier and leave a white cast on skin.
Chemical sunscreens are generally clear and look invisible on skin and feel more cosmetically elegant and lightweight, but can be less tolerated by sensitive skin types.
A hybrid sunscreen uses both chemical and physical sunscreens to maximize the pros and minimize the cons of each filter. Hybrid sunscreens are usually well tolerated by sensitive skin types, feel cosmetically elegant, and have less of a white cast from zinc.
