Description

Black Girl Sunscreen for Kids is an everyday SPF 50 moisturizing sunscreen lotion for the face and body. Our FDA-approved sunscreen protects against harmful UVA/UVB rays and has eliminated all white residue. Soothes, moisturizes, protects, hydrates and heals your child's skin. Water resistant for 80 minutes. No fragrance. No Parabens. No silicones. No aluminum. Oxybenzone and octinoxate free means your child's broad spectrum sunscreen is environmentally friendly.


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 altogether, women of color have come up with their own methods of protecting their skin. For years, sunscreen has been tailored to light-skinned individuals, leaving behind a visible white residue on our darker-skinned 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, Black Girl Sunscreen 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: Can this be used for colored 11-year-olds with oily skin?

submitted by Naula Isa - 4 years ago
  • A: We are unsure of what "colored 11-year-old" means. However, BGS Kids SPF 50 can be used on melaninated skin ages 6 months and older.

    submitted byTeam BGS - 4 years ago
  • A: Guys, Naula Isa is a Spanish name. It's also common in South America. These countries never had Jim Crow. The term "colored" is not offensive as it is in America. It just means brown or dark olive complexion. She just wants to know if she can use this on her daughter.

    submitted byTruthInAdvertising - 3 years ago
  • A: Homosalate is a chemical sunscreen and is recommended to be avoided by pregnant women and CHILDREN due to its harmful effects . SMH this has 15% homosalate. Do better.

    submitted byDo your Research - 2 months ago
  • A: If you mean POC yes...colored should not be a word used to describe melaninated skin.

Q: Does this sunscreen work for combination skin?

submitted by Omar - 3 years ago
  • A: Hello Omar! Yes, Each skin type is different. Our customers with sensitive skin tend to lean towards the Kids formula as it has more healing properties than the adult (for kids' delicate skin) such as chamomile and shea butter. BGS was also created with acne-prone skin in mind. Which is why we are toxin-free, paraben-free, and oxybenzone-free and we would recommend our Make It Matte formula. Hope this helps!

Depends on who's using it

3 out of 5 stars
AR - 4 days ago, Verified purchaser
I've bought about 5 tubes of this so far and never had a problem. My eldest daughter likes to layer this under her makeup because it's not greasy and doesn't leave a white cast. However, today I applied this to my 7 month old, and she broke out in red rashes. (The picture is after I had washed her face and her rashes were calming down already) All my other kids use this sunscreen with no issues, so I guess it just depends on your skin type. If you have sensitive skin, I would probably pass on this.

I have run through several tubes of this sunscreen! The formula is so light and it smells pleasant. Little to no white cast and I use it on my body. Has never let me down for a long outing or a beach trip. I do prefer a much lighter, less greasy, watery formula for my face so I use a different sunscreen for my face.

All-time favorite sunscreen

Molly - 18 days ago, Verified purchaser
This is my favorite sunscreen, I refuse to use anything else (besides the spray version of the same thing). I buy several at a time so that I never run out and can apply liberally. I apply this as a base in the morning/before I get dressed, and then reapply with the spray throughout the day. I don’t use it on my face usually, but I have before and it works great. There is no white cast at all! (I have medium tan skin that gets even darker in the summer, so if there was a cast you’d see it for sure.) My only tiny complaint is that it’s slightly oily; I think this is impossible to avoid with sunscreen so it’s not really an issue and doesn’t stop me from using it. I just notice smudges in my car or on my desk if I lean my arms after using this sunscreen. It’s nothing crazy and is easy to wipe away when you clean.

I’m so angry about this sunscreen. I’ve seen many rave reviews about how well it wears under makeup, doesn’t sting eyes and protects against sun damage. I’m a daily available user with EXTREMELY DRY sensitive eyes, and have a hard time finding sunscreen that’s affordable and easily available. DO NOT USE THIS. I’m a pharmacy tech that’s been doing local deliveries for my pharmacy this week, and in just one week of applying this to my face, neck, chest and arms up under my scrubs, I look like I’ve spent a week at the beach. Mind you, I’m not burned in the least. But I am fair and freckled with red hair, and after feeling (and looking) like I was basting myself in cooking oil and thinking I was beginning to notice a tan, my Mother was the one to say this evening that I look like I’ve been to the beach, which is exactly what I’m trying to avoid. Never again. Not on my face or body

I believe all the one star reviews for this product, I was struggling to find the reason why my face became irritated , itching, , my face turned like I have "Lupus" in my forehead and cheeks I Promise, then it clear up then again, till I started restorative balm to fix my face, my face calmed down , then the day I needed to go out I cleaned my face as soon as I applied this sunscreen that I didn't use for 5 days my forehead turned to sweet potato color, then I said that's it, this is the product caused me this issues, I returned home watched my face and still my face forehead and cheeks are red and irritated, the problem I returned the restorative balm and a new face wach thinking they are the ones caused me this, I also noticed that my forehead close to my hair is burned turned like black, so I Believe the review who said it turned her skin to black is true same here, I thought for a while it's the hair dye.. but it's not, this sunscreen is terrible avoid it , I was using it for a long time, I have dry skin, my face needs a treatment now, it never been like this ,.

I love this sunscreen. I saw that it was much cheaper than the “adult” version so I gave it a try. My skin is as dry as the Sahara but when I apply this, I honestly can't do without moisturizer. However, it's not greasy. Finally, a sunscreen for us!

I love this SPF. It's lightweight, has a nice sheen that doesn't look too oily like other sunscreens, protects well, and doesn't have an overwhelming scent. Love that it has no added fragrance. The naturally occurring scent is mild, maybe a bit grassy or something? Very mild and not bothersome at all, even if it's not your favorite. I'd rather have this than a super strong coconut profile that overrides my perfume. And best of all, so so affordable. I'd definitely recommend this as a body sunscreen for anyone who likes using Asian sunscreens on their face. It is quite as cosmetically elegant? No. But it's about as close as you'll get in the US market without spending a fortune.

Black Girl Sunscreen Kids SPF 50 is my favorite sunscreen and I now wear it daily. I have dry and sensitive skin and was not happy with the scents on other sunscreens in the past. I randomly saw an ad for this on Instagram and decided to add it to a Target order. I have been wearing it everyday ever since. No white cast and feels very moisturizing. It absorbs very well and an affordable price. The only thing I have to say be wary of is that it is not tear free so be very careful applying near eyes.
