Today Beyond Coastal continues to produce the healthiest sun screens in both our Natural and Active lines as shown by the Environmental Working Group (EWG.org) Beyond Coastal is one of only two brands tested out of 500 plus brands that got top rating by the EWG for both it’s Natural and their Active sunscreen formulas.
