Sunscreen and SPF products are a staple step of any summer beauty routine. As the warmer months approach, we each start to look for new sun protection products which will protect our skin, prevent burning and minimise skin damage to ensure we are safe in the sun.
As many of us are also choosing to be a little bit more mindful and looking for cruelty-free products, we have selected our favourite cruelty-free sunscreens and SPFs that will keep your skin protected and healthy this summer.
It is also so important to always remember to look after your skin post-sun exposure with a hydrating cream. Cruelty-free and free from chemical nasties, we love to use Dear, Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream if we get a little too much sun.
Which are the best cruelty-free sunscreen and SPFs?
Whether you are simply looking for a suncreen for the whole family or want a lightweight SPF to apply underneath your makeup for everyday protection, you will find your perfect formula in our edit.
