Our take You’ve probably heard that chemical sunscreens have been linked to skin damage and cancer. The problem is that they work by absorbing the sun’s rays, rather than reflecting them. But physical sunscreens, which work by providing an actual barrier between your skin and the sun’s rays, get a bad rap because they can leave you looking ghostly white. Not this one. The All Good zinc-based, broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen sprays on absolutely clear from a non-aerosol, no-clog can. It kept us shielded on above-treeline pursuits in Colorado and on sun-blasted days in the Grand Canyon. Note: The spray is only available in one size (6 oz.), which is bulky if you’re going ultralight.
Trail cred “I hate the greasy residue that lingers on your hands and fingers after you apply sunscreen, especially in the backcountry when you can’t wash it off easily,” says a tester who brought the Sunscreen Spray on a three-day trek in the Grand Canyon, “but you don’t get that with this spray.”
