Thanks for the response, but I asked for a sunscreen that is all natural.
Whoops! Sorry about that- I answered your question right after I woke up and I must have skimmed over that part.
Good luck in your search!

Hey guys I am looking for a sunscreen that has a good SPF meaning its over 30 atleast or 30 and it is all natural and non-comedogenic. It must be all natural or organic because nowadays there are a lot of chemicals in sunscreens that may cause skin cancer themselves. I am also looking for a sunscreen that is not really water proof, not sweat proof and not a spray, glue. I do not want water proof or sweat proof because these types of sunscreens can clog the pores and I do not want sprays or glues that much because these are not as effective as creams.
I agree with Ripon about how hard its going to be finding a sunscreen. I'm kind of on the same page as you though. I'm trying to look for a sunscreen that works when applied so I don't have to wait 15-30 minutes before going out.

Tinosorb M or Tinosorb S
Why? Because these sun filtering agents protect against UVA and UVB, have low risk in skin allergies, are very stable and our body hardly absorbs it.
Sadly enough, sunscreens that use these sun filtering agents are relatively expensive.
Other good sun filtering agents are:
Has the same properties as Tinosorb M and Tinosorb S, only less Stable.
The same as Mexoryl XL, but it only protects against UVA, so has to be combined with another sun filtering agent.
Tinosorb M, S and Mexoryl SX,XL aren't chemical filters neither physical.
This means they have all the benefits combined, and don't carry the disadvantages!
Then we have the physical filters which are: Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide
When you look for a sunscreen containing one of this filters, It's better to choose a brand that didn't use nanotechnology.
If they didn't use nanotechnology, the Sunscreen will probably leave a slight white haze on your skin.
No Nanotechnology sunscreens are also very suitable for kids.
If you choose a suncreenbrand that used Nanotechnology then skip the spray bottles please.
Both Zinc Oxide and Titanium dioxide protect against UVA and UVB.
Other good (But less familiar) sun filtering agents include:
Uvinul T 150
Neo heliopan AP. Only UVA
Uvinal A plus. Only UVA
You better avoid sunscreens that contain:
Plant Extracts (Examples: orange, grapefruit, lemon, lavender, rosemary, tea tree)
Last but not least: avoid sunscreens that contain oxybenzone (due to safety concerns) A LOT OF sunscreens contain oxybenzone.

It's a bit pricey, but it feels really great on my skin. And yes, it is all-natural. I've been using it for at least a year and am sure that it is non-comedogenic.
