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: 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!

    submitted byTeam BGS - 3 years 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: 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

Bought this to try and give a black owned business support, but sadly this contains so much fragrance that I had to take it off immediately. Also, the ingredients are not that great to use and they’re toxic to the environment. I will be returning

TxMama16 - 23 days ago, Verified purchaser
The title says it all. The sunscreen does exactly what I expected based on reviews and research. Just like many of the reviews mention the bottle is too small. I don't mind paying a premium for something that is quality but I do mind having to buy several at one time so that I am not constantly needing to go to the store.

Chemical sunscreen, not mineral nor reef safe

2 out of 5 stars
Thumbs down graphic, would not recommend
targetshopher - 2 months ago, Verified purchaser
Because of product claim to be free of oxybenzone and other chemicals and I saw the company answer it was reef safe, I was under the impression that this was a mineral sunscreen. It is not unfortunately. It's made of similar chemicals like avobenzone and none of these are reef safe. Moreover it's misleading the way they have this posted on the site. Also I saw all the great reviews about it leaving no white cast thinking it sounds like an amazing mineral option. However, since this is a chemical sunscreen, of course it wouldn't leave a white cast. The white cast is more of an issue with mineral sunscreens. I will be returning this product ASAP.

Screen for the Queen - 2 months ago, Verified purchaser
I use this as well as my son. It leaves my skin with the right amount of hydration and moisture and I like how my skin looks when I wear it. At times I don’t makeup because of the glow and appropriate amount of shine on my skin. It doesn’t irritate my skin which I like cause my skin is sensitive. I bought some for my son cause he’s always in the sun with his job and it’s not too early to get him into wearing sunscreen. I just love this. It’s great on black screen, I promise
