Courtesy of BadgerNew Hampshire-based Badger produces some of the best mineral sunscreen on the market. Its Badger Balm contains no parabens, sulfates, or other harmful chemicals.

Badger—based in Gilsum, N.H.—produces a range of mineral sunscreens formulated with pharmaceutical-grade zinc oxide, like the Badger Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Natural Mineral Sunscreen Cream ($16.99, 2.9 ounce bottle). In addition to being environmentally friendly, Badger products do not contain parabens, sulfates, or other synthetic chemicals that have been linked to potentially negative health effects from absorption into the skin.
