Vegan Sunscreens We Can’t Get Enough Of

Vegan Sunscreens We Can’t Get Enough Of
Here are six brands to shop on Adore Beauty this summer!

While the cruelty-free beauty movement is having a moment, many moisturisers, serums, cleansers, foundations, bronzers, eye shadows, and lip balms are still tested on our four-legged friends and packed with non-vegan ingredients like collegian, lanolin, elastin, and beeswax.

And do you know what else falls into this camp? Sunscreen!

This feels especially important as summer rolls in and the UV rays rise through the (sun) roof. Thankfully, there are now a stack of amazing sunscreens on the market that are cruelty-free and vegan-friendly. Phew!

If you want to be sun-smart and prevent early signs of ageing, slapping on sunscreen is your best defence and something that should be part of your daily routine. Skin cancer is also a very real risk, especially here in Australia, which is why the Cancer Council recommends using a sunscreen labelled SPF 30 or higher on the reg.

To help you make the right sun care choice for your body, our planet, and the animals we share it with, we’ve pulled together a list of the six best vegan sunscreens you can shop for now at Adore Beauty.

Let’s find the best one for you!

Eco Tan: Natural Sunscreen Untinted

A silky, hydrating, zinc-based sunscreen that glides on like a dream and leaves no white cast? Yes, please! Eco Tan’s Natural Sunscreen is created with zinc oxide to arm you against harmful UV rays. What’s more, it’s vegetarian, Australian made, certified organic, and accredited toxin-free, so you can apply it knowing there’s no nasties lurking about.

Ultra Violette: Queen Screen SPF 50+ Luminising Skinscreen Serum

Hello, glow town! Ultra Violette’s SPF 50+ has a serum-like texture that’s absolutely nothing like that thick, gluggy sun cream your parents coated you in as a kid. Free from oils and packed with active ingredients that work hard to keep you safe from the sun, this sunscreen is the bomb – particularly if you want to protect yourself and turn heads at the same time. Promising a luminising finish, Queen Screen is luxe, dewy, and works as a base layer under makeup or on its own.

Aspect: Sun Hydrating Face SPF 50+

This SPF 50+ sunscreen doubles as a daily moisturiser, so you get all the sun protection benefits while caring for your skin at the same time. Win! This product is plumping, hydrating, and promises an immediate even glow – perfect to lather on before makeup. It’s suitable for all skin types, lightweight (never sticky!), and made without animal products. It’s also proudly Australian made and owned.

Alpha-H: Daily Essential Moisturiser SPF 50

The Alpha-H Daily Essential Moisturiser blends skincare and sun care in one heavenly formula. Rich in antioxidants, vitamin B5, silica, and vitamin E, this nourishing product promises no chalky finish or greasy residue. It’s Australian made, SPF 50, vegan, produced with locally sourced botanicals, and it’s perfect if your skin is a little on the sensitive side.

AB LAB: Barrier Boost SPF 50 Mineral Sun Cream

Haven’t tried Adore Beauty’s own community-driven label yet? Now’s the time! The AB LAB Barrier Boost is a mineral sun cream that promises to maintain your skin’s natural moisture barrier. Adore Beauty spoke with hundreds of customers to formulate a dewy, high protection sunscreen that you can rely on every day. It’s sulphate free, cruelty free, and completely vegan – and it’s also totally affordable too!

MAAEMO: Pure Defence SPF 30

Fragrance free, toxin free, reef safe, and vegan. Need we say more? This mineral sunscreen from MAAEMO is formulated specifically for your face and blends into the skin effortlessly. Heads up: this one’s a little on the thicker side, but it will still leave you with a gorgeous glow (not to mention an amazing armour against the harsh UV rays). It’s perfect for outdoor adventures or endless days in the surf.
