SPF S.O.S : 5 Highly favoured SPF products
By: Shaza Elnour
We often hear the misconception that people of colour do not need to wear sunscreen lotions or other products with high Sun Protection Factor (SPF) because the melanin in their skin provides protection against UVA/UVB rays. While melanin provides some protection against UV rays, sunscreen is still needed to ensure higher levels of protection.
While the beauty and skincare industry is expanding to be more colour-inclusive with the products they put out, it can still be tricky to find just the right products that won’t leave your skin feeling (and looking) greasy, pale or under-protected. To help you get started with finding the right product, we have compiled a list of the top 5 highly favoured sunscreens for People of Colour down below.
1. SuperGoop! Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40
2. Black Girl Sunscreen SPF 30
3. Bolden SPF 30 Brightening Moisturizer
4. Glossier Invisible Shield SPF 35
5. Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Eventone Suncare
