The oil I know of with natural sunsceen properties is sesame oil. Also chapparal herb has some sunsceen properties. I don't know the spf. I used a homemade blend that did pretty good. If you get toasted sesame oil it makes you smell delicious! But you'll crave chinese food!

Carrot creme has some spf value. I have Burt's Bees creme for my face and I haven't burned all summer. I put some on dd and she hasn't had a sunburn either.

I don't know if this constitutes natural, but I have been using a zinc diaper rash cream as baby sunscreen.
