To naturally safeguard skin cells and collagen, we’ve packed our sun care with free-radical fighting antioxidants.

  • Rosemary Extract is rich in actives that protect fats (lipids) and cell membranes from free-radical damage
  • Edelweiss Extract has evolved to grow at high altitudes in strong UV light and contains actives that protect cell nuclei from free radicals
  • Green Tea contains catechins which protect both lipids and cells from free radical damage, and reduce the ageing effects of sunlight

Our unscented sunscreens are ideal if you have fragrance allergies or you have ultra-sensitive skin. They are also eczema friendly.

All of our sun creams are also suitable for those prone to prickly heat. This itchy condition develops when sweat glands become blocked, causing a bumpy rash or blister to develop on the skin.

Green People’s water-repellent sun creams contain organic plant oils, plant-based waxes and emollients that repel water yet still allow the skin to breathe. Because our sun care is non-pore clogging it enables the skin to sweat and helps protect against prickly heat.

Anti-inflammatory plant extracts we use to help soothe skin inflammation caused by sun exposure include Organic Rosemary, Organic Edelweiss, Organic Green Tea and Organic Chamomile. Read more about how to calm prickly heat.

Anti-inflammatory plant extracts

Our organic sun creams provide protection through a blend of safe, non-toxic filters.

Green People uses both physical and chemical filters to achieve broad-spectrum UV protection. The physical filters that we use are Titanium Dioxide and non-nano Zinc Oxide from minerals. These work by physically reflecting or refracting UV rays to prevent UV radiation reaching the skin surface.

All Green People sun creams also feature Organic Edelweiss which acts as a natural UV-booster. It’s powerful antioxidant properties help fight free radicals and protect skin cells from photo-damage.


Green People’s ocean-friendly sun creams are free from Oxybenzone, Octinoxate and Octocrylene. Read more about our Oxybenzone-free sunscreens.

To further protect our seas and shorelines, we are proud to continue our partnership with the Marine Conservation Society and donate 20p from the sale of every full-size Scent Free SPF30 Sun Cream to this worthy cause.


We are proud to present our sun cream in fully recyclable, renewable sugar cane tubes with a favourable carbon emissions profile.

For every 1 kilo of sugar cane plastic produced, 3 kilos of C0is removed from our atmosphere. This exchange can be described as being climate positive. Read more about our innovative sugar cane packaging.
