the story behind black girl sunscreen

Our Story

This is a new concept; black people don’t normally wear sunscreen. We are here and excited to live and embrace the journey of being people of the sun. Exhausted from the shortage and inefficient product for women of color, I decided to create

Our approach for BGS is to use natural ingredients that moisturize the skin without leaving a white residue or as we know it being ashy. Ingredients include carrot seed oil, jojoba oil, almond oil and shea butter while being fragrance free. BGS wants you to be smart, come out from the shade, and protect your skin.

I thought to myself, why don’t I have those same options?

Whenever I would go to the beach or the pool with friends, I would immediately look for shade because the fear of burning-meanwhile my other girlfriends were enjoying the sun with many options to protect their skin. And I thought to myself, why don’t I have those same options? Hence BlackGirlSunscreen….

BlackGirlSunscreen is a weightless, ultra-sheer, fragrance free, melanin reinforcing SPF 30 sunscreen moisturizer that empowers the everyday women to have fun under the sun. BlackGirlSunscreen should be worn by the pool, to the beach, for sporty activities, and even during day to day errands. Leaving no white residue and having a product specifically made for your skin enables you to feel fearless and confident while being outside. Women that wear BGS are women of the sun-and they exemplify a happy and healthy lifestyle.
