The name is everything. The weightless, melanin-protecting Black Girl SPF 30 Sunscreen won’t leave skin with a sticky residue or white cast. Plus, the cocoa butter and carrot seed oil keeps skin moisturized and protected as you play in the sunshine.

Ultra Sheer SPF. The moisturizing blend of carrot seed, jojoba and almonds leaves skin protected and nourished, without the sticky effects of traditional sunscreens.

Carrot seed oil - With antioxidants galore, carrot seed oil helps naturally treat sun damaged skin. Thanks to the beta carotene, carrot oil has wonderful skin healing and rejuvenating properties, too.

Cocoa seed butter - This nourishing butter diminishes dark spots and reverses dull skin. Filled with healthy saturated fats similar to coconut oil, it even helps reduce inflammation.

Avocado oil - Hydrating and softening, avocado oil helps treat acne, blackheads and eczema. It’s highly emollient with an excellent source of antioxidants, fatty acids, minerals, and vitaminseven acts a natural mini sunblock.

My Melanin is Protected!

The worst part of sunscreen is the ashy thick cream that colors your face. Perhaps, that’s what prevents some people from using it all. But this product has you covered (pun intended!) it’s light enough to use all year long and safe enough to use on my toddler son at school. It’s winter time, but that doesn’t mean, my melanin doesn’t need coverage and Black Girl Sunscreen has me protected!

Truly Ultrasheer!

Sunscreen is something I've never really valued and even as I've gotten older and began to understand the necessity of suncreen, I still had reservations towards any of the mass produced brand available at local stores. However, after seeing this product featured on the BLK + GRN's Instagram and watching a few reviews, I went ahead and purchased BGS. I love it! Having a skin tone similar to Gabrielle Union the usual grayish residue left behind by popular suncreens is not a problem here. I use this suncreen on all exposed areas including my face. I haven't experienced any skin irritation or clogged pores nor has my toddler. I ordered two bottles and while I was planning on keeping the second one just in case, I instead decided to give it to my friend. I absolutely recommend this suncreen and I hope everyone who buys it loves it as much I do!

Love It

What I like most is all the education on the product regarding the harmfulness of the sun. Next this goes on clear and you can’t even tell you are wearing sunscreen. I do use this on my arms and legs as well as my face. I do wish they had a version for males because the men in my life are not messing with it because it says girl.

Black Girl Sunscreen

Shontay Lundy loves to be outside. She often hikes, practices yoga and walks her bulldog on the beach. Unfortunately, she couldn’t find a sunscreen that would protect her from the sun without cramping her style. Like many women with dark skin tones, applying sunscreen meant dealing with the white residue left behind by traditional products—and it wasn’t a good look.

Armed with an MBA and a personal vendetta against this unappealing residue, the New York-rais... read more
