Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

I use Rubber Ducky SPF Lip Balms (Reviewed HERE) and absolutely love them, and now I can say the same of their sunscreens. Their products are cruelty-free, eco-friendly and very effective.

About Rubber Ducky,

Rubber Ducky, the original water-resistant sunscreen, has been cruelty-free since 1984 and chemical-free since 2013. The sunscreen, which is formulated and made in the USA, is eight hours water-resistant—you can actually see the water bead up and not soak in. It also won’t “sweat” in the eyes, freeing you from irritation and making it perfect for outdoor sports. Rubber Ducky Sunscreen natural SPF 50 tinted and SPF 30 un-tinted, both for face and body are pure, natural, and chemical-free. Both natural sunscreens are free of oxybenzone, parabens, gluten, and non-GMO, eco-friendly, and reef-safe. Each of Rubber Ducky sunscreens has achieved the highest rating on the United States 8 Hour Water Resistance test and the Australian 4 Hour Water Resistance test (the most rigorous sunscreen test in the world). Unlike other sunscreens, Rubber Ducky truly stays on and protects.

Rubber Ducky Natural SPF 30 Untinted Sunscreen - Face and Body ($18.00 for 3.3 oz. from Carefree Skincare and Amazon): This mineral sunscreen is formulated for adults and children alike, and while it has no added fragrance it does have a very faint lavender aroma from the lavender oil. It offers an SPF 30 and it is water-resistant for up to 8 hours, but naturally you will need to reapply it every 60-80 minutes for sun protection. While it is white, it doesn't leave a white film on the skin, and it turns clear upon contact with the skin.

According to Rubber Ducky,

Rubber Ducky® all natural broad spectrum SPF 30 un-tinted crème is perfect for the whole body and safe on face, hands, children and seniors.

FACE and BODY - This sunscreen formula is 100% natural, untinted, paraben-free, and hypoallergenic. Stays on in water and won't sweat into eyes.

LIKE WATER OFF A DUCK'S BACK-  Rubber Ducky sunscreens are the most thoroughly tested and highest rated on the market today. They achieved the highest rating on the U.S. 8 Hour Water Resistance test and Australian 4 Hour Water Resistance test (the most rigorous sunscreen test in the world). Unlike other sunscreens, Rubber Ducky sunscreen "stays on in water".
