Are Organic SPF Moisturisers Effective?

We all know that it is important to use an SPF moisturiser when spending long stretches of time outdoors. Not only to protect the skin from long term damage but also to help stave off those pesky fine lines and wrinkles!

Here at Handmade Naturals we specialise in all-natural, vegan products that are free from chemicals and animal products. This includes SPF moisturisers, which are designed to be not only kind to your skin, but gentle on the planet, too!

However, some people wonder whether organic products are as effective as non-organic. So, are organic SPF moisturisers effective in protecting you from the sun’s rays? Let’s find out…

What Are Organic SPF Moisturisers?

An organic SPF moisturiser takes the benefits of hydration and combines it with the protective power of sunscreens. 

These formulations use organic ingredients that are free from harsh chemicals, parabens, sulphates, artificial fragrances and colours, as well as pesticides, all of which can be damaging to both the skin and the environment.

Are They Effective?

Ultimately, whether or not organic SPF moisturisers are an effective hinges on the ingredients they contain. Sadly, not all organic formulations are created equal, and their efficacy depends on how effective their ingredients are at repelling the sun’s rays.

While some organic moisturisers may falter in providing comprehensive sun protection, others stand tall by integrating robust natural ingredients.

All of our SPF moisturisers are effective in keeping your skin protected. Made from natural ingredients, they ensure the skin is hydrated, healthy and most importantly, shielded from the harm the sun can do to the skin.

Benefits Of Organic SPF Moisturisers

The organic SPF moisturisers we offer provide a range of benefits for not only your skin but the planet, too, including:


Our organic SPF moisturiser products eschew PABA (Para-Aminobenzoic Acid), which is a common ingredient found in traditional sunscreens. PABA is notorious for causing skin irritation in some individuals, which is why it has no place in our products.


Many organic formulations avoid the use of alcohol due to its ability to dry out the skin and cause irritation. Instead, we opt for ingredients that nourish and hydrate, while compromising on none of the UV protection.


Knowing your moisturiser isn’t going to wash straight off as soon as your skin comes into contact with water is reassuring. Thankfully, many organic SPF moisturisers are as water-resistant as their non-organic counterparts, so whether you’re braving the waves or caught in an unexpected downpour, your skin should remain protected.


Free from ingredients that are linked to coral reef damage, the SPF moisturisers we offer will allow you to bask in the sun safe in the knowledge your moisturiser isn’t having a detrimental impact on marine life.

These products are great for keeping your skin youthful, staving off fine lines and wrinkles caused by the sun’s UV rays. As well as hydrating and nourishing your skin, our natural products are environmentally-friendly too.
