Green People’s organic suncare range avoids the use of harmful chemicals and is designed to protect even the most sensitive skin, as they are free from parabens, silicones and synthetic fragrance.

With ethical viability at the heart of its brand, Green People’s sun lotions are in renewable sugar cane packaging. Farmed on sustainable land, this carbon-neutral raw material captures CO2 so efficiently that for every 1kg produced, over 3kgs of CO2 is removed from the air.

As well as making eco-safe sun lotions Green People has been supporting The Marine Conservation Society since 2011, donating 20p from the sale of every one of their full sized marine-friendly sun lotions to this worthy cause.
