Of course, all Green People products are vegetarian and not tested on animals and many of their products are also vegan (which is clearly marked), including a factor 15 vegan sun cream.
"Our natural sunscreens contain antioxidants and anti inflammatory ingredients with skin vitamins A, C and E (Green Tea, Olive, Avocado and Rosemary extract) to help support the skin's immune system and protect against cell damage."The SPF 25 sun lotion we tried out was unscented, as Miss Ony has been known to come out in a nasty all-over skin rash when she uses scented sun creams and the eczema-prone Miss Kahonie says that most sun creams (even unscented ones) make her face sting. The Green People lotion was thick, rich and easy to apply, although it did take more rubbing in than a spray-on sun lotion would; It felt very moisturising too.

"SPF25 sunscreen offers 96% protection from rays while SPF50 offers 98%. SPF 30 sun lotions do not offer twice the protection of SP15. Applied properly , SP15 filters out 93% of UVB rays, while SPF 30 filters out 97%. Even the highest SPF100 offers 99% protection against UVB rays. It is far more important to apply sun lotions regularly and liberally."The cream protected us all well, even on hot sunny days (with several applications) and neither of the girls suffered any reaction to it. Miss Kahonie's dry skin actually looked better after using the cream for a few days.
At £15.95 for a 150ml tube, the cream is not cheap, but worth the money if you can't use cheaper lotions. As we generally go through 4-5 bottles of sun lotion between us on a summer 2 week holiday in the sun, I reckon that buying a tube of Green People for us all to use on our faces and then getting a cheaper store's-own unscented product to use on our bodies is a good compromise between cost and sensitivity!
Green People stock a wide variety of skin, body and hair care products, which can all be purchased from their online shop.
I received a 150ml tube of Green People children's sun lotion to review. I did not receive payment, and the views expressed are genuinely those of myself and my family. Pin It
