Healthy Planet

568 Danforth Ave, Toronto, ON M4K 1R1

Healthy Planet is a vitamin, supplement and remedy store that happens to also carry beauty and skincare products, including all-natural sunscreen. Here you can find sunscreen brands like Boo Bamboo for babies and kids, antioxidant Derma E, shea butter and aloe vera Goddess Garden, mineral-based MyChelle, and skin nourishing Kiss My Face. They also have tinted SPF face balms by plant-powered Andalou Naturals and SPF brightening day cream by Derma E.

Consonant Skincare

2479 Yonge St, Toronto, ON M4P 2H6

Toronto’s Consonant Skincare is known for its natural sunscreen, which they call “the perfect sunscreen.” You can grab one in a travel-sized 50 ml bottle, which has an SPF-30 protection and is made with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide minerals. It also contains a hydrating formula and natural mica tint that helps even out skin tone. Tip: It gives off a tan tint colour, so it’s best to apply it before putting on clothes. Looking for more sun care? Try the antioxidant Superhero serum that also helps protect from the sun and moisturizes the skin.

The Detox Market

You can find so many natural and organic products from skincare to makeup to haircare to tea at The Detox Market. They carry the popular Coola (infused with kukui and coconut oil), which comes in the sport SPF-30, baby SPF-50, and face SPF-30. Find it in an unscented matte tint, cucumber matte finish and SPF-20 rose essence tint. Protect your lips, too, with Hurraw’s SPF-15 lip balm. They also have tinted and regular SPF-30 day cream by active herbal extract and plant oil Josh Rosebrook. For anti-aging, try the Sunlove Screen by Skinlove.

2375 Yonge St, Toronto, ON M4P 2C8

This all-natural skincare and wellness spa offers top-notch sunscreen brands like Coola and the light-weight and non-greasy Graydon face and body sun cream. I personally love Graydon’s face glow, which acts also as a primer and adds a shimmer to your skin that is oh-so-perfect for summertime and tropical vacations. You can also opt for Jane Iredale’s mineral BB cream with SPF-25; you can use it in lieu of your regular foundation.
