While it is recommended to wear sunscreen year-round, Americans might be purchasing more in the summer months as we re-apply during all our outdoor activities. There are plenty of great vegan and cruelty-free sunscreens on the market these days, but we have listed a few of our favorites to keep an eye out for the next time you are at the store! All companies listed below offer at least one vegan sunscreen and are cruelty-free, meaning they do not test their products on animals.
Remember to be safe! Wear protective clothing when you can, always follow the guidelines on sunscreen packaging, and re-apply as needed!
Sun Bum’s website has a handy vegan filter for easy shopping. Both the Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 and 50 are vegan, and they come in a convenient spray bottle option! They are also water-resistant to varying extents, suitable for sensitive skin, and reef-friendly.

Kiss My Face has a few vegan sunscreens available, but our favorite is the Purely Mineral Sun Spray Lotion. It is water-resistant for up to 80 minutes, reef-friendly, and it is fragrance-free!
Bare Republic is not a fully vegan company, but they have various vegan sunscreens to choose from! The Clearscreen line is another option that does not leave a white “cast” after application, is water-resistant to varying extents, and is reef-friendly.
