Block Island Organics Awarded EWG Best Beach & Sport Sunscreen and Best Daily SPF

We’ve done it again! We're proud to announce that the Environmental Working Group’s (EWG) has named us a best in their 2021 Guide to Sunscreens & Daily SPFs:

EWG’s Guide to Sunscreens

This is the 15th year of the EWG’s Annual Guide to Sunscreens. The EWG is a non-profit and non-partisan organization and its mission is to protect our health and the environment. They want their sunscreen guide every year to be a "a one-stop location for finding safer, more effective products".

This year their guide reviewed over 1800 sunscreens and SPF product and found that 75% of the sunscreens did not provide adequate sun protection or included ingredients linked to harm. According to the EWG

"We have found that only about a quarter of them offer adequate protection, without concerning ingredients, such as oxybenzone, a potentially hormone-disrupting chemical that is readily absorbed by the body."

Block Island Organics Commitment

None of our sunscreen or SPF products contain any chemical sunscreen ingredients. Our sunscreens are mineral ONLY. And with only a quarter of the products deemed safe and effective by the EWG, we're excited to be on their list!

Of course our goal is to be on the EWG list every year. It's our commitment to you to be open and honest with you and make products that you'll feel comfortable and confident using everyday.
