Beauty By Earth Facial Sunscreen – SPF 20
Your face deserves a little love. Keep it safe and happy with our non-toxic Facial Sunscreen. We skipped the parabens, phthalates, and nano-particles to give you just what your lovely complexion needs: SPF 20 protection without anything toxic or dangerous.
Why bother wearing facial sunscreen? Good question! You don’t have to bask on the beach for the sun’s rays to impact your skin. Even running to the store or getting a few minutes of fresh air on your break can expose your face to harmful UV rays. Wearing a daily facial sunscreen gives you an added line of defense against sunburn, skin damage, and even skin cancer.
Why bother wearing a non-toxic sunscreen? Even better question! Conventional sunscreens block out UV rays with chemicals that sink into your skin and enter your body’s systems. Not great. Our mineral sunscreen, on the other hand, sits pretty on the top of your face, forming a barrier on the outside of your skin. We don’t use any nano-particles in our sunscreen, which means there’s nothing small enough to enter your body. You’ll get the sun protection you need without putting yourself at risk.
Speaking of reducing risk… You can wear our facial sunscreen with confidence, knowing that it’s reef and marine friendly. It’s also safe to use for all skin types, including people with sensitive skin and children. The sunblock’s active ingredient, zinc oxide, is supplemented with aloe vera leaf extract, vitamin E, green tea extract, and other natural ingredients that help nourish your skin as it protects. Use every day for best results! Vegan and Gluten Free.
How to Use
Use our non-toxic Facial Sunscreen every morning. After washing your face but before applying makeup, apply a generous amount to your neck, nose, forehead, chin, and upper lip. Make sure to extend your application to your hairline. If you are wearing a v-neck shirt, apply sunscreen to the exposed portion of your chest. Proceed with your regular makeup routine. If necessary, rinse with water to remove.

Beauty By Earth was created by two friends asking a question that is so often considered these days: how can you find health and beauty products that are safe to use around young children? Like so many parents, we found it incredibly difficult to find products that were effective, easy to access, and natural. So we figured why not make them ourselves?
Since we first decided to create Beauty By Earth, it’s been one heck of a ride! But throughout this experience, we’ve stayed dedicated to the idea that got us started: inspiring beauty and nurturing health. We’re thrilled to bring the items that have enriched our lives and improved our wellbeing to you and your family.
At Beauty By Earth, we’re here to bring you all natural skin care products that harmonize with your body’s natural state. We skip the junk you’ll find all to often in mainstream cosmetics and skin products. Instead, we use organic, natural ingredients that nourish your body and help inspire your beauty. We’re committed to helping you take care of yourself and your family without fear of unnecessary or harmful ingredients. We’re also proud to say that our products are gluten free, non-GMO, and mostly vegan, making them accessible to just about anyone.
Our commitment to inspiring beauty and nurturing health extends to everything and everyone that goes into creating our products. That means that all Beauty by Earth products are cruelty free and are proudly made in the USA under sterile conditions in a secure, FDA certified facility.
Question: Is this organic facial sunscreen?
Answer: Our facial sunscreen is not certified organic. However, we always use organic ingredients whenever they are available. Our face sunscreen contains organic aloe vera leaf extract, and a number of other nourishing, naturally derived ingredients.
Question: Is this a mineral face sunscreen?
Answer: It sure is! The active ingredient in our facial sunscreen is zinc oxide. Because it is a mineral sunscreen, it sits on top of your skin instead of sinking into it. It’s a lot safer than chemical sunscreens, which are absorbed by the skin.
Question: How do I use your face sunblock with zinc oxide?
Answer: We recommend applying our sunblock in the morning. Put it on after you wash your face but before you put on your makeup. Apply a generous amount to your neck, nose, forehead, chin, and upper lip. If you’re wearing a v-neck shirt, add a little sunscreen to the exposed portion of your chest too. Make sure you use sunscreen every day, even if it’s cloudy!
Question: Is this a good face sunscreen for sensitive skin?
Answer: Absolutely! We don’t use phthalates, parabens, sulfates, or other junk that is known for causing skin irritation.
Question: Is this a moisturizing facial sunscreen?
Answer: Yes, our face sunscreen moisturizes as it protects your skin. It is formulated with organic butters and oils specifically for their moisturizing properties.
Question: Will this face sunscreen help reduce the signs of aging?
Answer: This sunscreen will protect your face from the type of sun damage that can lead to aging. Wear it every day to avoid the type of skin damage that can lead to wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots.
Question: I’m looking for a face sunscreen that won’t cause breakouts: does your sunscreen cause acne?
Answer: Our sunblock is light, non-greasy, and designed not to block your pores. Many of our customers have reported that they don’t experience breakouts with this sunscreen, even when they have from others.
Question: Is this a good face sunblock for men?
Answer: It sure is! Sunblock is equally as important for fellas as it is for ladies. This sunblock doesn’t have a strong scent, plus it contains aloe vera leaf juice, so it will feel amazing if you apply it after shaving.
Question: What SPF is your face sunblock?
Answer: Our face sunblock is SPF 20.

1. What inspired you to create your brand?
We found that clean, green skincare products were just not widely available at a good price point. The ones that were marketed as clean and were maybe affordable were not truly clean ingredients. We wanted to make truly clean products more widely available at an affordable price.
2. If you could go back to the beginning of the creation of your brand what would you do differently?
We would bring more products to market more rapidly, rather than dripping them out.
3. What advice do you have to offer for those entrepreneurs in the green beauty industry just starting out?
Do your homework. Learn about ingredients and work with a good lab and chemist to get you to where you want. Really do your homework on your market demographic so your marketing efforts are targeting the right people.
4. What is your most favorite product you have created and why?
Oh, that is a hard one. I absolutely love our self tanner. Being naturally pale, there are times I just need some color and this is definitely my go-to. But the product I use most often is the foaming face wash. It’s just so light and gives a great cleanse.
5. How do you juggle your life with such huge demands from your company?
The first few years were rough. Lot of late nights after putting the kids to bed. We would carve out from 4-8pm for the kids each day and worked into the night to keep the grind going in the beginning. It gets easier.
6. What is your morning and evening beauty routine?
In the morning I wash my face with Beauty By Earth Face Wash first. If I’m having problem skin, I’ll use the Beauty By Earth scrub and black Konjac sponge to give it an extra good clean. Then I spritz the Beauty By Earth Facial Toner and follow it up with their oil control moisturizer and eye cream. Finally, I’ll apply the Beauty By Earth tinted sunscreen before applying makeup.
At night I’ll wipe my face clean with the Shea Moisture face wipes and follow it up with the Beauty By Earth moisturizer and eye cream. If I’m having problem skin, I’ll apply the Beauty By Earth face mask before the moisturizer.
7. What ingredients are never added to any of your products?
Parabens, SLS, SLES, artificial fragrance, artificial dye, avobenzone, oxybenzone, formaldyhyde, phthalates, PEGs, petrolatum, mineral oil, soy, propylene glycol and anything harmful for your skin.
8. What is the best beauty advice you have received?
I love to follow beauty blogs like Organic Bunny and SunKissAlba for beauty advice about how to take care of your skin or even just every day routines. I’d say the best advice I have received is to follow the EWG Skin Deep database to find out how harmful each ingredient in your products are and what are the safest products to use.
9. What sets you apart from the sea of competition?
We go through a rigorous testing and formation process with all of our products before we put it in our store. We personally test everything ourselves to our satisfaction, and ensure all ingredients used in our products are safe. That’s why all of us on the Beauty By Earth team love to use our own products. We also test it on all skin types first to make sure the products are effective and great for everyone. Lastly, our price point for the quality of our products is quite reasonable.
