Black Girl Sunscreen: Black Owned & No White Cast!

Black Girl Sunscreen

This amazing product is a dream. An essential summer item that also benefits your skin, while also being a Black-Owned Female founded Company!

I was thrilled to find BGS via Instagram couple of weeks prior to #Juneteenth. I purchased it and have been enjoying it every beach day thus far.

Black Girl Sunscreen is founded by owner Ms. new tab)" rel="noreferrer noopener">Shontay Lundy. After much development and seeking the right financial fit, Ms. Lundy and her team were able to secure investments from a big-box retailer, which has provided national exposure for her brand.

Black Girl Sunscreen is infused with Jojoba and Avocado. It has a Broad Spectrum Protection rating of SPF 30 so like many sunscreens, multiple applications a day are necessary if in prolonged sun exposure.

The best part of it, is the lack of a white cast on your skin!

For so many years, women with Melanin have been forced to appear discolored when applying sunscreen. But thanks to BGS, that’s a thing of the past. Soon all the companies who refused to acknowledge the need for a sunscreen tailored to darker skin will try to copy what Black Girl Sunscreen has accomplished.

Riding high after a mention on Beyonce’s Black Parade, I’m sure we will be seeing a lot more products from them!

Make sure to visit Black Girl Sunscreen today, and always think to buy #BLACKFIRST.
