Cruelty-Free Product Reviews

June 16, 2017

Sun Protection is a serious business. Consumers must put faith in a company and its products to properly protect their skin from sun and its potential damage. Conventional sunscreen can often have chemicals and ingredients that individuals want to avoid. Additionally, they may be tested on animals. Therefore, it is important to be well educated in cruelty-free sun protection options.

Goddess Garden is a Leaping Bunny certified brand that specializes in organic, cruelty-free sunscreen. With a wide variety of products, consumers can find facial mineral sunscreen, everyday mineral sunscreen, sunscreen lip balm, and after sun skincare. 

The Facial Natural Suncreen is certified organic and contains antioxidants such as aloe vera, shea butter, and essential oils. It is lightly scented with lavender and applies easily to the skin without leaving behind a white film. It does a wonderful job at protecting the face from the sun and is an spf 30. This sunscreen is non-nano, reef safe, non-GMO, biodegradable, vegan, alcohol free, paraben and phthalate free, and gluten-free. It is water resistant for up to 40 minutes. However, it is important to reapply every few hours.

The Everyday Continuous Spray Natural Sunscreen comes in a spray bottle which disperses the product very well. This formula can leave a white film if it is not quickly rubbed into the skin. It does not have a scent and is also spf 30. Ingredients include aloe vera, sunflower oil, and shea butter. It is water resistant for up to 80 minutes. However, it is very important that you reapply every couple of hours if you are sweating a lot and/or exposed to the sun for long periods of time. It is non-nano, reef safe, non-GMO, biodegradable, vegan, alcohol free, paraben and phthalate free, and gluten-free.
