The search for the perfect mineral sunscreen is finally over. This week The Clean Beauty Edit welcomes Vive Sana to our carefully curated edit of clean beauty brands, and we couldn’t be more excited to share their two gorgeous sunscreens with you.
Trying to source an effective natural sunscreen can be tricky, as mineral sunscreens tend to sit on top of the skin rather than being absorbed, often leaving a heavy, coated look on the skin, but Vive Sana create organic products, with all botanically-sourced ingredients that not only offer sheer, broad-spectrum SPF protection but leave a pleasant feel and finish while also meeting skin’s daily nutrient needs. Instead of using chemical sunscreens, Vive Sana decided to use the very best barrier-supporting, skin improving, plant-based ingredients in its products, allowing you to have a luxurious daily regimen for healthier, more beautiful skin.
Both their Serum Crema and Daily Protezione contain organic Argan, Apricot and Avocado to deeply hydrate and build the skin’s natural barrier, while clean, non-nano uncoated zinc naturally protects.
- Non-comedogenic, ceramide-rich botanicals help support skin’s natural barrier to keep it hydrated, pliable and prepared for sun, pollution & other stressors
- Non-nano, uncoated, Zinc & photoprotective extracts provide durable, broad spectrum SPF
- Potent antioxidants repair damage before it’s irreversible & help improve brightness, tone & elasticity
- 70%+ organic
- 100% natural ingredients
- Broad spectrum sun protection
Daily Protezione, €69
Vogue magazine have called Daily Protezione “a neutralizing shield... subtly tinted and semi-matte. Not to mention, infused with non-nano zinc, moisturizing argan, collagen-boosting raspberry seed, and anti-inflammatory licorice root”.
Daily Protezione is a deeply moisturizing, barrier-supporting and antioxidant-rich organic SPF 30 face cream. Its remarkable natural & organic ingredients & integrated approach are critical to healthy & consistently beautiful skin. It offers support through 3 phases of protection:
Pre-Sun: Dry skin is particularly vulnerable to UV rays, yet most sun care is filled with topically drying ingredients. Organic, non-clogging emollients like Argan, Apricot, Avocado & Jojoba nourish & hydrate deeply.
In-Sun: Non-nano zinc provides broad spectrum, very water resistant, works-on-contact protection. Ceramide-rich organic Safflower & Sunflower help build skin’s natural barrier to lock in moisture, maintain elasticity & improve sun & pollution protection.
Post-Sun: Daily Protezione’s potent antioxidants scavenge free radicals to help prevent tumor growth, repair, improve collagen regeneration & protect skin. Nourishing botanicals soothe and soften skin.
Daily Protezione is a repairing moisturizer with SPF that should be first thing you put on in the morning. It is ideal in dry conditions, to combat against pollution & other stressors, for active lifestyles or sensitive skin, and for those who want deeply nourished skin & strong UV protection. It is moisturising enough to be used alone, but it’s semi-matte finish also allows for easy application of other products if desired.
Serum Crema, €89
Serum Crema is a light, antioxidant-rich organic face serum, blending the best qualities of a nourishing, daily face cream & a potent improving serum. VIVE SANA identified critical multi-phase treatment areas and curated the optimal organic & natural ingredient for each purpose. The result is an elegant, all-natural serum engineered to deeply hydrate, protect from sun & pollution, repair sun damage, stimulate skin cell repair, improve elasticity & even skin tone.
Goop have said that VIVE SANA is lusciously hydrating and that it ‘feels more like a silky night cream than a typical sunblock, melts in like a dream’.
Serum Crema mimics skin structure to absorb on contact, sit comfortably on skin, and to assist the natural barrier. Its natural & organic ingredients provide luxuriously sheer, lightly tinted, brightening coverage, upon which you can apply other products.
Serum Crema is designed for everyday use, especially at times when you need a lighter feel, moderate moisturization & sun/pollution protection, a potent antioxidant blend & a glowing finish.

- LICORICE ROOT - An ancient remedy for balancing skin tone & improving blood flow to brighten & soothe skin.
