Katonya Breaux founded Unsun Cosmetics in 2016 after much frustration by the lack of options within the world of clean sunscreen products for women of color. So, she set out to create clean, inclusive, no-residue options that are kind to the person using it as well as the environment it's being used in. Today, we are proud to be “hands-down” the favorite mineral tinted sunscreen for darker skin tones among Allure editors.
What is the Unsun difference?
We believe what you put on your skin should be clean, cruelty-free, and reef-safe. All Unsun products are vegan, and we have banned over 1,700 ingredients including oxybenzone octinoxate, octocrylene, homosalate, avobenzone, parabens, phthalates, sulfates, and synthetic fragrances. We also use 50% post-consumer recycled packaging and FSC-certified cartons, and work with only U.S.-based manufacturers—because we value the well-being of our customers and our planet in equal measure.
