Catch rays, not toxins

We know sunscreen is a must. But harmful chemicals in standard formulas are most definitely not. This SPF 30 fragrance-free sunscreen spray protects the whole family (little ones, too) against damaging UVA and UVB rays, while providing 80 minutes of water and sweat resistance. It’s safe to use on sensitive skin, so you never have to worry about irritation or a sunburn ruining a perfectly good beach day.

Shake well and apply liberally (avoiding face) at least 15 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply after 80 minutes of swimming or sweating and immediately after towel drying.


This SPF is totally sheer. Spray it on your hairline and part to protect your scalp from a painful sunburn (and those resulting flakes).

About The Brand

  • SO Chalky - Not transparant at all

    L June 10, 2021

    This was a very dissapointing purchase for me. I’ve tried applying this sunscreen different ways to avoid the white residue (holding the bottle farther/closer, rubbing in extra hard), and I simply can’t use it. Not only does it leave a chalky look, but the white residue rubs off on everything I come into contact with, and it’s not easy to get off. It’s straight up false advertising for this product description to say it won’t leave a white residue.

  • Disappointing - not sheer

    R August 05, 2020

    I loved this sunscreen at first — it went on sheer, wasn’t irritating, and felt cool on my skin. But after a few uses, it started leaving a white residue on my skin, then started coming out in a few thick white sprays rather than a sheer mist, even after I cleaned the spray nozzle. It has occasionally been left on my porch or in a bag while outside, so perhaps it got hot? But there is nothing on the instructions that warns against this. Perhaps I got a bad batch? Not sure, but disappointing.

  • Now THIS is some good sunscreen

    Jenny S. May 28, 2020

    I have been using this product in hot/humid Georgia and it was been working like a charm. Yes, it does leave a little bit of white zinc film…but, that’s because this contains zinc. All I have to do is give my skin a round of quick massage and you can’t see the whiteness anymore. There is no scent with this and after playing tennis for 2 hours, I noticed it was still on.

  • My go to for body sunscreen

    Lisa November 20, 2019

    I love this product! This has been my go-to for sunscreen for my neck and body (I’ll quite particular about face coverage) for the last few years. It is white and needs to be rubbed in a bit because of the zinc but I’m ok with that. It’s not sticky or perfumy and stands up to outdoor exercise.

  • Easier to apply than most zinc-based sunscreens; still doesn't absorb all that well

    Briana October 07, 2019

    I’ve been trying to switch over to zinc-based sunscreens, but man… the texture is difficult! Most don’t ever really absorb, and many leave a pretty thick, white layer on top of your skin that not only looks pretty bad, but comes off on things like upholstery and car seats as well. This one is much easier and faster to apply than the creams I’ve tried, but still has the aforementioned drawbacks… Still holding out hope for a non-chemical sunscreen that feels and looks ok on the skin!

  • Perfect for every day

    Amber A. August 04, 2019

    I love the fine mist! It doesn’t have much of a smell, it doesn’t clog, and it’s easy to use – I can spray to cover my own back b

  • Pretty good

    S&ra July 29, 2019

    It is very effective, but be careful not to spray it too close to your skin. It will definitely leave a white cast if you do. Great for sensitive skin.

  • Let Down

    Haley S. July 26, 2019

    Way too much residue! I am a big beach person so go through a lot of sun block. It’s quite challenging to find a good clean sun block. This one leaves so much residue, does not rub in at all. I accidentally ordered two unfortunately. I will probably be returning. Love Follain though!

    • From Follain:

      Hi there! We are so sorry to hear that the Babo Spray Sunscreen was not a perfect match for you. Please feel free to reach out to and we can make sure to find you a product that you will love! Best, Team Follain

  • Too much residue

    Laura P. July 19, 2019

    I use this for my kids and it was nice and sheer the first few times we used it, but every time since it leaves a white residue. Which means that we have to rub in just like we would any non-spray and that my wiggly kids get the zinc all over my clothes!

  • Awesome Product!

    Lisa L. July 02, 2019

    I wanted a spray because it’s easier to work in and because it’s a spray it doesn’t need so much blending in. It’s lightweight and isn’t sticky. It does the job. Also there is no residue on clothes. This is my 3rd bottle. The only issue I had is that it leaked on the airplane and I had to toss it but this is a minor thing – just beware in case you are traveling with it.

  • Leaves a white residue

    Huong B. June 23, 2019

    Im tan and want to prevent getting darker. This left a white residue over my skin and dries it out.

  • A good buy

    Meg June 09, 2019

    I really like this product. I bought it primarily to apply before biking to work and so far, so good. Goes on very easily, sprays well, blends in, and doesn’t leave any sort of residue. Have also been applying to my toddler before he heads to daycare in the morning and he’s a-ok with it, too!

  • nice and lightweight!

    Kimberly C. May 16, 2019

    goes on clear, feels lightweight and not sticky!

  • Good sunscreen!

    Emma R. April 26, 2019

    This stuff it great for any day in the sun! Not too “heavy” or sticky either!

  • easy to use, but doesn't rub in

    Emily S. November 08, 2018

    it sprays smoothly on to skin, but then it quickly turns into a chalky zinc-y texture, making it difficult to rub in and leaving me looking like a ghost. it’s a great product if you have fair skin or you’re using it for little kids (might look awkward on dark-skin kids). amazing ingredients. I feel very clean using it. I will not buy again, though.

  • Perfect Lightweight Safe Sunscreen!

    Caroline N. August 29, 2018

    I always shake the bottle before I apply since it is a mineral sunscreen. I really enjoy the spray feature and how lightweight it is when you apply. Easy go to sunscreen for when reapplying after you have been in the water.

  • When all other sunscreens fail...

    Annie W. August 24, 2018

    I love this stuff. It is so amazing to find an all natural sunscreen in a spray bottle. My sister absolutely HATES body sunscreen, she’ll just refuse to wear it at all. I sprayed this on her once and she told me to go buy another bottle for herself. It’s so easy to spray, extremely light weight, and never feels greasy. Make sure to shake the bottle before using!

  • Best sunscreen

    Lisa B. August 13, 2018

    This is by far the best – sprays very smoothly, is very lightweight and lists the best natural products I have seen so far, with a high percentage of zinc!

  • Sunscreen for kiddos

    Seema J. August 08, 2018

    So I detest applying sunscreen on my kiddos in the morning before school but it’s the “good mom”/“right” thing to do! The spray makes it easy but it does not rub I great – leaves a white ghostly film – my kids have a darker skin tone. It also doesn’t seem to wash off easily. I bought it for its “clean” rating and am happy with that but would would prefer an easy application that doesn’t leave my kids with a sticky-Esque white appearance

  • Easy application

    Morgan G. July 05, 2018

    The spray function makes application super easy. Unlike some other sunscreens I’ve tried, this one rubs in well and is very effective. So glad I found it!

  • Awesome sunscreen

    Zoie P. June 20, 2018

    This sunscreen is awesome. It is not greasy at all. It sprays on slightly white but blends into my skin nearly sheer. I prefer the zinc based sunscreen and am happy to find a spray on kind. This makes protecting my skin a breeze! I just ordered a second one so I am prepared this summer 🙂

  • Great sunscreen

    Kimberly G. June 12, 2018

    Nice and light. Doesn’t leave you stuck or greasy, and no harsh chemicals
