If you’re looking for a list of gluten-free sunscreen or gluten-free sunblock, this list is just for you…
Many people have skin reactions when gluten anchors its slime and goo on them, so gluten-free sunscreen is a must. But for those who have celiac disease or gluten intolerance and don’t have problems with gluten on the skin…should you use Gluten-free sunscreen?
My personal vote is yes… simply because everything but the sharks ends up in your mouth when you go to the beach.
The bottom line is that you touch the sunblock at the beach, then wipe your mouth – gluten goes down the hatchet along with a pound of sand. Nasty. So, I’m a fan of gluten-free sunblock.
Thankfully, there are tons of gluten-free sunblocks to choose from. To the best of my knowledge, the following is a list of products with no gluten added. And since companies may change their formulas. Always double-check the ingredients (I know…gag, lol).
Sun Bum Sunscreen: This sunscreen is one of the best smelling sunscreens; it’s like the tropical forest in a bottle. The smell isn’t even the best part—it’s vegan! No animal testing. It’s hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic. So, not only does it not test on animals, it doesn’t have all the horrible chemicals in it, and it STILL works 100% better than big name brands out there—magic in a bottle.
Kiss My Face Sunscreen: It’s fragrance-free, soaks in quickly, isn’t sticky, no residue. Good ingredients and peptides too. And best of all, it’s a weightless “wonder.” I’m not too fond of the feel of anything on my face, whether it be moisturizer, make-up, or sunscreen. A few minutes after application, the feeling of it being on my skin completely vanishes. I feel this gives excellent protection.
Coppertone Oil Free Sunscreen Lotion: This one is oil-free, fragrance-free , and hypoallergenic. This is great if you don’t like the feel of a normal sunscreen. This goes on and disappears. It is dry to the touch and works great in the sun. It doesn’t leave skin greasy at all.
Banana Boat Ultra Sport Sunscreen Lotion: This fragrance-free sunscreen has a very “thin” feel to it and spreads easily onto your skin. Banana Boat company rep. said that they don’t use wheat protein or wheat-derived oils in their products. However, they can’t claim that their facilities are gluten-free, as some of the ingredients may have been cross-contained.
Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen: All Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen formulations are gluten-free, with no wheat proteins found in any of the products.
California Baby Sunscreen Lotion: Here is a quote from the website”California Baby® products are proudly blended, manufactured and packaged in our FDA registered & certified organic solar-powered U.S.A facility. All products are allergy tested and free of gluten, soy, dairy, or nuts (except coconut).”
Badger SPF 30 Clear Zinc Sunscreen: Certified cruelty-free and gluten-free, 84% organic base ingredients and Clear Zinc Oxide, it’s non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic – safe for sensitive skin.
BullFrog Sunscreen: According to BullFrog representative, all BullFrog sunscreens are gluten-free.
Alba Botanica Sensitive: Another excellent product free from harmful chemicals is 100% vegetarian ingredients. They don’t do animal testing.
