Traditional sunscreen comes with a lot of problems. Environmental concerns go beyond saving the oceans, as plastic sunscreen bottles take up space in landfills. In terms of ease of use, traditional sunscreen can be messy and hardly feels enjoyable once you’ve slathered it all over your body. If you don’t buy just the right type, it could irritate sensitive or acne-prone skin, and don’t even think about wearing a high-SPF sunscreen with makeup.

So, how do you keep both your skin and the sea safe?


Larkly offers a sustainable, reef-safe, vegan sunscreen that’s refillable and reusable, making for fewer plastic bottles in landfills. Portable and easy to apply, the mineral-based sunscreen offers SPF 30 protection. It’s chemical-free, fragrance-free and cruelty-free, and even incorporates antioxidants from ingredients like green tea and licorice root extract to protect your skin further from environmental damage. The translucent powder sweeps on with the help of a handy brush and can be applied anywhere. Powder refills just snap onto the brush applicator whenever needed.

You can purchase Larkly sunscreen for $32 for both the applicator and your first powder refill; later refills are $17 each and available in a subscription. A bundle option includes all of the above, for $44.
