Black Girl Sunscreen SPF30 - 89ml
Black Girl Sunscreen was made for people of colour (or anyone who doesn't want their sunscreen to leave a white cast). Clean, vegan and cruelty-free, BGS is formulated with extracts of moisturizing avocado, sunflower oil and jojoba as well as cacao and carrot juice (known for their anti-oxidant properties). In addition, it is Oxybenzone and Octinoxate free - which means you won’t have to worry about toxic chemicals disrupting your hormones.
Black Girl Sunscreen is for every day use. Not only does it protect your skin from harmful UV rays, it also serves as an excellent primer or a standalone moisturizer.
Product of the U.S.A.
Anyone and everyone! Black Girl Sunscreen dries completely clear so it’s perfect to use before any outdoor activity or under your favourite makeup products. Try it as a primer, or as a standalone day cream.
The best practice is to apply 30 minutes before going outside to allow the sunscreen to bind to your skin. Re-apply every two hours of exposure and immediately after swimming or excessive sweating. Even when it's cloudy, up to 80 percent of the sun's UV radiation still reaches the earth. For more information, see Cancer Council Australia's information on sunscreen here.
If you are unsure about a possible sensitivity to a product, always do a patch test before use or consult your healthcare professional.

Yay—let's recycle! Here’s a quick guide for when you've finished using all your products:
1. Make the products 'recycle ready' by rinsing it out and cleaning it. What if the product doesn't work for me? Give it to someone who might like to try it! That way, you will minimise wastage and give the product a second home. ♡♡
2. Get the DETAILS! Typically, most skin care packaging is recyclable in Australia, but what can and can’t be recycled depends on where you live. A quick Google search will reveal a recycling guideline based on your state / territory.
3. Can I put this in my recycling bin? If you've checked and the answer is 'yes', give these items a second life and put them in the recycling bin. If it's not, look into enterprises like TerraCycle, to help you properly recycle your beauty products. If the product is recycable through TerraCycle, it is FREE and all you have to do is gather your empty products together, print a recycling label and ship it out - that’s it! They’ll take care of the rest for you.
FYI, recycling plants uses numbers ranging from 1 to 7 to help sort all the materials. PETE stands for Polyethylene Terephthalate and PP stands for Polypropylene — these are both plastics. PAP represents paper / mixed paper / cardboard. See Earth Easy to learn more about your plastics.
That's it babes! Remember to love our earth; love our planet! #dontbetrashy
