Description

Moisturize your face and body while protecting it from harmful UVA/UVB rays with the Black Girl Sunscreen. This sunscreen is broad spectrum with an SPF of 30. It blends effortlessly and eliminates all white cast. It is infused with natural ingredients such as avocado, jojoba, cacao, carrot juice and sunflower oil. These soothe, moisturize, protect, hydrate and heal skin.

Our story begins with the need for a sunscreen brand that caters exclusively to women of color.

From carrying expensive umbrellas to the beach to avoiding the sunshine all together, women of color have come up with their own methods of protecting their skin. For years, sunscreen has been tailored to light skin individuals, leaving behind a visible white-residue on our darker skin sisters. Blotchy makeup and white residue were enough to keep people from truly enjoying a beautiful sunny day. Our founder thought it was about time to change that.

In 2016, Shontay Lundy created Black Girl Sunscreen, a 30 SPF lotion infused with natural ingredients and formulated for women of color. Made with melanated skin in mind, BGS dries completely clear and protects melanin without the white-cast.

Today, BGS is making moves! Black Girl Sunscreen has grown exponentially because of you. The goal of BGS is to start the conversation globally around sun safety to educate and protect melanin beauties worldwide. Now with four products, we’re saying Black does crack and it’s in our power to protect it.

Q: Well if this isn’t racial division.

submitted by MollieMae - 3 years ago
  • A: Its not. Its clearly formulated for use by more melanated individuals, by melanated individuals.. as opposed to the *other* sunscreen that does not offer the "Black Girl" prefix. Thankyouuuu

    submitted bybeesbites - 9 months ago
  • A: You're right, it isn't racial division -- it's introducing a product to fill a need that hasn't been filled before: sunscreen that doesn't make dark skin look chalky. Which means that people with darker-hued skin can protect themselves without having to sacrifice appearance, which wasn't a problem for lighter-hued people. Now we can all put our skin health first! Hooray for inclusivity! (recognizing factual differences isn't division ... it's only "division" if you apply qualitative judgements to them)

    submitted byAster - 3 years ago
  • A: You're ridiculous.

    submitted bySuperMama42 - 2 years ago
  • A: Black Girl Sunscreen protects people of ALL skin tones and helps to reach people of color who are more likely to skip sunscreen because most other brands leave a chalky residue on darker skin. I hope this helps!

If you have dry skin and want something super moisturizing this is it!!! I have combo skin and I love this sunscreen so much it! It does have a smell at first but it goes away as soon as you apply it. I don’t recommend on oily skin though since this is a very dewy formula, reminds me of Korean sunscreens.

I’m afraid to try it again to make sure…but I’m pretty SURE this broke me out. Pimples all over my face that I didn’t have until I tried this before my makeup. I won’t be wearing it again because I’m scared to even try. Now I have to find another sun screen and hope it’ll work for me

This is amazing stuff. It is truly made for black girls or anyone who hates the whitecast that most sunscreens leave behind. There are some complaints of it smelling bad or having a bad odor, but I don't agree. There will always be some scent when it comes to sunscreens, but it is not overwhelming. I saw a reviewer that complained about price compared to the size of the bottle, but a little bit goes a long way, especially if you mix it with your facial moisturizer.

I love the feel, it is not oily, it is very moisturizing. Also there is no bad odor, it’s a light fragrance associated with sunscreens in general. The only flaw I can say is it’s very pricey for the size. do not hesitate to buy this product!

Love the formula of the product. It makes it so much easier for me not to forgo my use of daily sunscreen now that I’m 50 y/o. I’m actually forever sold on the product. A little pricey for me; but I’m at the age where you got to spend a lil more for quality products.
