NOT Tested on Animals SUNSCREENS we LOVE


Sun can be a blessing on a picnic day. It can be the perfect addition to your day at the beach. Trying to keep your skin safe from too much sun can be challenging in todays world. While it seems that we see new and innovative sun protection products hit the market almost every day, there are a select few that customers love best. So many sunscreens have unhealthy additives which can clog pores, harm your skin and harmed countless animals with painful processes to ensure its not toxic for humans to wear. We have compiled a handful of cruelty-free sunscreens and many contain the mineral zinc oxide, which blocks both UVB and UVA rays.




Learning the lingo: UVA, UVB, chemical vs mineral and more

UVA: The sun’s rays are divided into two types: UVA and UVB. Most of the rays you’re exposed to are UVA (and UVA can penetrate glass). Look for ‘broad spectrum sunscreens’ in the US, which mean they protect both UVA and UVB. In the UK, look for the star rating for UVA protection; the rating is between 0 and 5 with 5 being the highest. This actually shows the ratio of UVA to UVB protection.

UVB: UVB rays are responsible for sunburn, and sunscreens were originally developed to protect from UVB. SPF ratings rate the UVB protection.

SPF: SPF stands for sun protection factor and describes how much longer you can stay in the sun without getting a sunburn; for example, if you’d burn within 10 minutes of being in the sun, an SPF of 15 will allow you to stay in the sun 150 minutes (15 times longer).
