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 is lightweight and eliminates all white residue.

It has been specifically crafted for women of color and is infused with natural ingredient such as avocado, jojoba, cacao, carrot juice and sun flower 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 - 1 year 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 - 1 year 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 - 2 years ago
  • A: There is no difference between this chemical sunscreen and other chemical sunscreens other than the non-active ingredients, which may or may not be beneficial depending on your skin type (dry, normal or oily), rather than your skin color.

Q: What is the difference between the regular version and the kids version?

submitted by - 2 years ago
  • A: Hi there! Great question! The main difference between BGS Kids and the signature Black Girl Sunscreen is the SPF protection 50 vs 30. The BGS Kids contains soothing ingredients such as chamomile, hypoallergenic, and is great for ultra-sensitive skin. It can be used at age 6 months or older. The SPF 30 is sufficient for adult skin. It also contains ingredients such as jojoba which is beneficial for acne-prone skin and avocado a great moisturizer. And remember, a little goes a long way. Hope this helps!

Fell in love with this. Amazing texture, no white cast, doesn't pill, and left my skin velvety. I've never used a sunscreen that left my skin so soft. If you're on the oily side you can skip a moisturizer because it already does that and you risk being overly shiny. If you have dry skin you need this. Looks great under makeup too.

Fit Babe - 3 months ago, Verified purchaser
I LOVE this sunscreen! This is the best one I’ve ever tried. It goes on very smooth and completely clear. It doesn’t leave that ugly, ghostly white cast on your face. While it does have a typical sunscreen smell it’s not strong at all. I can hardly smell it. It leaves a nice glow on my face, which is nice since I have somewhat dry skin. I highly recommend this sunscreen. It’s well worth the money!
