Vegan Face Sunscreen Guide: Your Ultimate Guide

‍When we think of sunscreen, we usually imagine an SPF-filled bottle that smells like coconuts and conjures images of tropical locations. However, many people don't (yet) consider vegan face sunscreens, but they are catching on. Many conventional versions of sunscreen are packed with animal byproducts and fragrant oils that leave a burning sensation when applied.

Now, you might be wondering: what does ‘vegan’ mean when it comes to sunscreen? And which type of sunscreen is best for vegans? Keep reading to find out everything you need to know about vegan face sunscreen.

Our Vegan Sunscreen is the right choice for your vegan skin care goals.  It has a long list of clinically proven plant based ingredients and superior natural sun protection.

What Does Vegan Sunscreen Mean?

Vegan face sunscreen means that no animals were harmed or killed in the making of the product. You may have also heard the term cruelty-free, which means that no animals were harmed or tested on during the product’s creation. Vegan-friendly sunscreen is usually plant-based, meaning that no beeswax or other animal-based ingredients are used in the formula.

Why Use a Vegan-Friendly Sunscreen?

They’re easier on sensitive skin.  Most animal-based sunscreen ingredients can cause skin irritation, rashes, and burns. Vegan face sunscreen is much more gentle on sensitive skin types, allowing you to wear it more frequently without any negative side effects.

They’re better for your health.  Many conventional sunscreen brands are packed with harmful chemicals like oxybenzone, which can disrupt your hormones and lead to serious health issues. Vegan-friendly sunscreen brands are free from harmful synthetic ingredients, meaning that you’re applying fewer toxins to your skin.

They protect the environment.  Did you know that most conventional sunscreen brands are harmful to marine life? This is because UV rays are very harmful to coral reefs and other wildlife, causing coral bleaching and death. Vegan-friendly sunscreen brands typically contain ingredients that protect the environment, preventing the death of marine animals.

They are more sustainable.  Many conventional sunscreen brands are non-biodegradable, meaning that they take a very long time to break down and are harmful to the environment. Vegan-friendly sunscreen brands are usually biodegradable, meaning that they break down easily and are safe to use.

Our Vegan Sunscreen is the right choice for your vegan skin care goals.  It has a long list of clinically proven plant based ingredients and superior natural sun protection.

Which Ingredients to Look for in Your Vegan Sunscreen?

Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide.  These two ingredients are often used as natural sunscreens, protecting your skin from UV rays naturally. Unlike conventional sunscreen brands, many vegan-friendly brands do not contain chemicals that disrupt your hormones or cause other serious side effects.

Coconut oil and cocoa butter.  These oils are great for moisturizing the skin and protecting it from the sun’s harmful rays. Coconut oil and cocoa butter are often used in vegan-friendly sunscreen brands because they are hypoallergenic, affordable, and effective for protecting the skin!

Green tea.  Green tea is often used in vegan sunscreen brands because it contains powerful antioxidants that prevent UV damage to the skin!

Plant-based extracts.  These extracts include ingredients like calendula, cucumber, and carrot, which have soothing and moisturizing properties.

Peptides.  Peptides are amino acid chains that are used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines while protecting your skin from the sun.

Other ingredients to look for in vegan sunscreen include aloe vera extract, oat extract, and Vitamin E.

Which Ingredients Should You Avoid?

Oxybenzone.  This common sunscreen chemical is often found in conventional sunscreen brands and is known to disrupt your hormones, cause skin irritation, and be harmful to marine life. Avoid any sunscreen with this harmful chemical, as you can find a vegan-friendly alternative.

Vitamin A.  This chemical is harmful for your skin and is often used in conventional sunscreen brands to increase the SPF level. You can find vegan-friendly alternatives with lower SPF levels that don’t contain harmful ingredients.

Parabens.  These preservatives are often found in conventional sunscreen brands and are known to be harmful for the human body. Vegan-friendly sunscreen brands are free from these harmful chemicals, allowing you to protect your skin in a more sustainable way.

Fragrant oils.  These oils can cause irritation and breakouts on the skin. Avoid any sunscreen products that contain fragrant oils, as they are not suitable for sensitive skin types.

Titanium dioxide.  This chemical is often used as a sunscreen whitener and is harmful to the environment. Look for vegan-friendly sunscreens that do not contain this chemical, as it is harmful to marine life and does not enhance the product’s effectiveness.
