I received Block Island Organics Natural Mineral Sunscreen to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.
With Summer now over half over, it’s so easy to start slipping on good habits. But being proactive about sun safety is still super important to me. It has to be! The health of my family rests on my diligence. So as I worked on replenishing our sunblock supply to get us through another month, I turned to Block Island Organics and their Mineral Sunscreen for help.
Block Island Organics offers an SPF 30 Natural Mineral Sunscreen as a great choice for a face and body sunblock. On a mission to develop a natural product for their customers sun protection needs, this great sunblock is the result.
Safe Sun Protection
Their mineral sunscreen is created with the active ingredient Zinc Oxide 22%. However, it’s always sure to be free from harmful ingredients.

Natural Mineral Sunscreen
No longer is a high SPF the indicator of a good sunscreen. As a matter of fact, a broad spectrum sunscreen is what’s more important. For the vast majority of the population, SPF 15 or 30 is more than adequate. Any SPF higher than that offers very little increased benefit. Many chemical sunscreens are considered to be endocrine disruptors. So finding a mineral based sunscreen that your family loves is a safer alternative.
The dreaded application of sunblock. It’s really not THAT bad but still one of my least favorite parts. However, I found Block Island Organics Natural Mineral Sunscreen to go on fairly easily. Word of warning though, it did come out of the tube fast! I found a small amount to go a long way with this sunscreen so that first squeeze adequately covered all of Lucy’s exposed skin.
I found that the sunscreen rubbed in well and left minimal traces of white behind after a quick application. But if I rubbed a little more, I was actually able to get it to absorb completely. The ultra-lightweight and non-greasy formula makes it a good choice for everyone in the family.
Get Out, Be Confident, & Have Fun
So whether hitting up the trails, visiting the ocean, or just playing at a park, grab some Block Island Organics Natural Mineral Sunscreen. Great sun protection in a matte finish that leaves everyone feeling great. Plus, they even won the 2017 Best Beach & Sport Sunscreen (Environmental Working Group – EWG)!
