Favourite Vegan Sunscreen

By Samantha - Five Vegans

Our two favourite Sunscreens for summer updated January 2023

I will admit I have tried so many sunscreens over the years. Before becoming vegan I was not scanning ingredients like I do now but was conscious about whether the sunscreen was tested on animals. I have had some interesting experiences with sunscreens like the time one particular sunscreen stained my daughter’s tee-shirt purple. Another time I ended up getting a sunscreen, you spray on, in my eyes and all I can say is ouch!

It honestly took me years to find a sunscreen I was happy with and one I like using on my kids also. By looking for a vegan sunscreen in the first place that often means that they already do not have a lot of the nasties in them like parabens and chemicals etc. I am also looking for something that offers high protection and is non greasy.

With all that in mind, and after years of personally testing a variety of vegan and natural sunscreen options out there, here are the two that I love the most and now use for my family. Which is why I have chosen to stock them.

When this sunscreen came out I really wanted to try it. We found this to be easy to apply, it smells nice and does the job well. No complaints from my kids when I applied this which believe me is a huge win. It was not greasy and no purple stains in sight.

If you have young kids and want to make sure you are using a toxic free sunscreen then this is an excellent choice. My kids can vouch for this.

This sunscreen comes in a handy tube so if you prefer that over a tin (like our “Sunbutter” sunscreen) then you might prefer this option.

I have only recently started using this sunscreen (I think it is fairly new to the market) but I already love it. This sunscreen is not greasy, rubs in clear, is SPF50 and comes in a clear or tinted option.

I love that the handy tin it comes in is made out of recycled and reusable material. It is easy to pop into your bag and nice and secure so no spills. It is non greasy and easy for the kids to use. There were no complains when we used it on our girls.

It is also suitable for use from 6 months of age for another added bonus. I really like the ethics of this company as well. It is made in Australia in a solar powered factory.

This is the sunscreen our family uses these days. I personally prefer a tin over a tube and think it is awesome that the tin is recyclable.
