Keep Your Skin Protected With Black, Female-Owned Brand: Black Girl Sunscreen


Founder Shontay Lundy has a revolutionary sunscreen for women of color that is cruelty-free, vegan, and made from natural ingredients.

The brand was first created in 2016 in Miami, Florida. Lundy wanted to create a sunscreen that worked for women of color. A sunscreen that left no white residue and is specially formulated for use under makeup. Black Girl Sunscreen (BGS) was the solution.

BGS is designed specifically for women of color and can be found in Target stores as well as online. It is also available internationally now, landing in Nigeria. It has an SPF of 30, water-resistant for 80 minutes after application, is fragrance-free, doubles as moisturizing lotion, and has no parabens. BGS is perfect for those with sensitive skin.

Aside from their main sunscreen, they have also debuted a BGS Kids with an SPF of 50. You can count on it having the same great qualities as their main product, especially the fact that it leaves no white cast.

On May 27, 2020, BGS secured a $1 million investment from a female investor to help support and grow the brand. Lundy is beyond grateful and so excited for what is to come with BGS. A new product will be launching later this year. Be on the lookout for it.
