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 Sunscreen 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)
Here We Come!
Here We Come!
This past year has been truly amazing! From touching down in Nigeria (yay we’re international now!) to being featured in Essence Magazine and debuting our kid’s line of Sunscreen-BGS Kids!
We’re showing no signs of stopping anytime soon. Did we mention the fact that you can find us in Target too!?
It’s our goal to educate and protect melanin beauties worldwide.
We’re reaching new heights and we want you in on the ride.
Black Girl Sunscreen uses NO parabens, or other harmful chemicals while infusing the finest ingredients to shield and moisturize your melanated skin without the dreaded white residue common with most sunscreen.
We plan on sprinkling this Melanin Magic everywhere…
Come glow up with us! We’ll be glowing and growing all 2020 + beyond!
