10 Oils with Natural SPF


I think Sunblock is great – especially when it’s non-toxic and safe for your body. If you’d really like to go all natural with your sunblock, you can use oils to provide you with your sun protection needs!

I’ve heard of people using coconut oil or olive as a natural SPF, but after seeing what their SPF rating it, neither of those two oils have enough sun protection for my fair skin. I believe that something is better than nothing, but I would definitely look at using carrot seed oil or raspberry oil for an all natural sunblock.

Oils with the Most Sun Protection Factor (SPF)

Carrot Seed Oil: SPF 38-40

Raspberry Seed Oil: SPF 28-50

Wheatgerm Oil: SPF 20

Avocado Oil: SPF 4-15

Coconut Oil: SPF 2-8

Olive Oil: SPF 2-8

Macadamia Nut Oil: SPF 6

Almond Oil: SPF 5

Shea Butter: SPF 3-6

Jojoba Oil: SPF 4

Have you tried any of these oils as an all natural sunblock? I’d love to hear about your experience!
