Hey Crish,

You might want to try UV Natural Sport Sunscreen SPF30+. We took it when we went to Mexico and it worked great. It is not only made from 100% natural ingredients, but it also moisturizes your skin because it contains natural oils. I'm not one-hundred percent sure if its good for snorkeling as we never used the sport.. we just used the regular, but the one we used seemed to stay on even when we went into the water, so the sport should stay on. Its definitely a great pick for eco-friendly and it has not side effects/health risks like normal sunscreen. However, you must keep in mind that as it is natural, it is more expensive and has its own drawbacks. Its made in Australia from green tea, grape seed extracts and natural oils. They advertise that it is not oily, but I will worn you that until it dries it does tend to be quite oily (this usually only lasts 10 or so minutes). We tried various other natural sunscreens and this was the only one that works and had no strong smell (our kids couldn't stand one of the natural sunscreens we bough as it smelled strongly of herbal tea and peppermint.) Hope this helps and have a safe trip! Here is the link for the sunscreen company and if you scroll down you can see the sport sunscreen and view the ingredients (you might want to shop around to find a good price)
