The Environmental Working Group’s recommendations for sunscreen includes the following statement:

Our top-rated sunscreens all contain the minerals zinc or titanium. They are the right choice for people who are looking for the best UVA protection without any sunscreen chemical considered to be a potential hormone disruptor. None of the products contain oxybenzone or vitamin A and none are sprayed or powdered.

I believe they also mean that these recommended types have good UVB protection, as well.
