7 Cruelty-Free Vegan Sunscreens for Summer 2020

It’s always important to put on sunscreen, but not all sunscreens are vegan. We did the research for you and rounded up seven vegan and cruelty-free brands to keep you protected this summer.

Alba Botanica

Mostly-vegan brand Alba Botanica is a line of body, hair, and skincare products, which includes suncare items like sunscreen. Their wide range of vegan-friendly sunscreens consists of sprays, lotions, sticks, gels, and oils in a variety of options, including some specifically made for kids, sensitive skin, and sports. Each formula is biodegradable and reef-safe.

Babo Botanicals

Babo Botanicals is a mostly-vegan collection of hair, skin, and 100% mineral zinc suncare products that are sensitive skin-safe. Note that their lip products, Sport Sticks, and SPF 40 Daily Sheer Sunscreen are NOT vegan. Besides that, the vegan items in their suncare lineup feature mineral, facial, baby, and sport sunscreens in sprays, pumps, and lotions. All are reef-friendly.

Mostly-vegan brand Bare Republic is dedicated to making reef-friendly mineral sunscreen. Their options encompass lotions, gel-lotions, sprays, sticks, neon sticks, baby, and shimmer products—the only non-vegan option is their Mineral SPF 50 Sport Sunscreen Stick. In addition to being cruelty-free and vegan, their products are gluten-free, free of chemical sunscreen actives, and non-GMO.

Vegan-friendly skin and makeup brand Glossier’s range includes a vegan sunscreen. Their non-comedogenic Invisible Shield is a lightweight, daily sunscreen with an SPF of 35 in a water-gel formula that feels like a serum. It protects against sunburn, helps prevent sun damage and skin cancer, and works to neutralize harmful free radicals. The transparent formula allows for a grease and white cast-free finish that works well with makeup.


Goddess Garden Organics

Fully-vegan Goddess Garden is a line of body, skin, and aromatherapy products that incorporates mineral sunscreen—all of which are reef-safe and sensitive skin-friendly. This array includes lotions, sprays, and sticks in daily, sport, kids, and baby formulas.
