Gluten Free Sunscreens

June 8, 2015Living Freely Gluten Free

That time has approached once again and the sun is in full bloom. For me that means Costco size containers of sunscreen. However, I get very cautious because I react strongly topically to gluten. Once my skin comes in contact with it, it will take weeks and often a steroid cream to get it to clear up. Nasty Rash + Sunscreen + Sunburn = One very unhappy pasty pale red person.  

There is a lot of people talking about the chemicals in sunscreen and its about time. Always read your ingredients and never use a product that has chemicals in it that you don’t feel comfortable with. I always go all natural for my kids sunscreen and Honest has been a great and affordable brand. There formula has improved over the last few years and I use it exclusively.

My personal favorite gluten free sunscreen that I have used is:

This is one of my favorites. I put it on the kids exclusively. It does not contain any nasty chemicals and it does its job. I buy it on the monthly plan through and that makes it incredibly affordable .


California Baby -this one is pricey but it does not contain any nasty ingredients. You can trust it putting it on the kids.

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch – I like this one because it does dry on contact it doesn’t leave grease and it really protects my skin, however this sunscreen contains BHT and this is YUCKY!!! I save this one for really sunny days when I will be in the direct sun and need the extra protection) and I make sure to wash it off in the same day! 

 Banana Boat- This sunscreen works well, its affordable and easy to find.

 Babyganics- This one is a great natural sunscreen for the kids. I like it.


 And this is my NUMBER ONE PICK!! 

Coola- This sunscreen is organic and it smells heavenly. I have spent enough of my life smelling like sunscreen. This sunscreen goes on clear, it smells fantastic and does its job without containing extra unnecessary chemicals.
I hope this list helps you and your family stay protected from the sun and gluten this summer. Happy Summer everyone!!!

Here are my favorite Coola products.
