Coconut oil seems most neutral to me.
For a sunblock i would use a sunblock specifically designed for that purpose.

Here's something I was wondering....

Let's say coconut oil has an SPF of 2 and macadamia oil has an SPF of 6. If I put both oils on my skin does that give me an SPF protection of 8?

If the oils would stay on your skin, layer of layer, yes.
But that is not the case, some of the added oil will replace the formerly applied oil, and that mixture will have the properties of a mixture (something like 6+2 / 2 = 4)

Thank you.

can you recommend the sunblocks / sunscreens to use? Can you give the brand? I am using coconut nut oil now as recommended but not sure what sunscreen to use? What is the brand you use.? I only have pigmentation and sun marks and acne scars. Thank you very much.
Im sorry, i cant.
But you can check various brands for unwanted ingredients.
