    Supergoop! founder and CEO Holly Thaggard and co-owner Maria Sharapova say it’s incredibly important to read labels and look for a water-resistant broad-spectrum formula with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 to 50.  Thaggard also recommends staying away from Oxybenzone as it was named the number one skin allergen of 2014. I agree!


    While I prefer mineral-only sunscreens, I have been able to tolerate Supergoop formulas even though other similar products have caused me to have an allergic reaction. The line is also a favourite of celebrities and beauty mavens because of its light feel and skin pampering ingredients.


    The Supergoop line now offers primers, serums, and a wide range of cosmetic and skin care products with sun protection.


    Here are two to try:


    Supergoop! Antioxidant-Infused Sunscreen Mist with Vitamin C. It is available in both SPF 30 and SPF50. The non-aerosol formula UV protection and defends skin from dehydrating and free radical damage. It has added Vitamin C to protect skin from free radical damage.

    It costs $13.00 – $19.00
