Our story begins with the need for melanin women to have a sunscreen brand that caters exclusively to them.
From carrying expensive umbrellas to the beach and downright neglecting to go outside all together, our founder thought it was time to create a natural non-white residue sunscreen brand for women of color.
2016 was the year Black Girl Sun Screen was created in the ever-popular city of Miami, Florida. Beach days are always necessary but blotchy makeup and white residue are two things we were frustrated with when enjoying a sunny day.
In fact, all outside activities began to come to a halt since we knew how much sun rays would damage the skin. (even ours)
Now it’s 2018 and Black Girl Sun Screen has gone viral
Now it’s 2018 and Black Girl Sun Screen has gone viral, won awards and even has a new product launching for kids in 2019. You’ll find us in online publications, local fundraisers and events.
It’s our goal to educate our community while helping you to stay protected when enjoying time outside.
You’re reading about the sunscreen brand that recently won “Best of What’s New” by Popular Science.
Taking over social media this year was just the beginning of our goal to spread awareness in the community.
Black Girl Sunscreen uses no parabens, or other harmful chemicals and infuses the finest ingredients to protect and moisturize the skin without the dreaded white residue common with most sun screen.
As a busy woman you can take BGS with you on the go without worrying about skin damage and the hassle of finding a brown skin friendly product.
Be bold, be healthy, be fearless, be confident.
