With its truly universal formula and velvety texture, Beet The Sun is our simple solution to once-complicated SPF protection that’ll have you reaching for it again and again.

PETA-certified vegan and cruelty-free.

Key Ingredients:
Beetroot Extract: provides anti-inflammatory & antioxidant properties to combat free radicals and UV rays.
Vitamin E: helps reinforce barrier repair and smooths out the look of skin.
Hyaluronic Acid: attracts & retains moisture to keep skin hydrated all day.
Propanediol: helps prevent skin damage & water loss.

Actives:
Homosalate 10% which absorb short-wave UVB rays
Octisalate 5% to help with the water-resistance of the formula and also provide protection from UVB rays
Avobenzone 3% to keep skin safe from both UVB and UVA rays
Octocrylene 3% to capture harmful UV rays before its absorbed into the skin and also has emollient properties

Test Results:
For Beet The Sun we carried out a total of 6 tests: 2 FDA Broad Spectrum Tests, 2 FDA SPF Static Tests, 1 ISO 24444 (2019 version) and 1 ISO 24442. It’s common to only perform these tests once, but we knew it was important for you to be extra clear.

The Broad Spectrum Test and ISO 24442 helps measure UVA protection and results in the “+++” in the PA value. Through these tests, we found that Beet The Sun can protect against 88 to 94% of UVA rays!

The SPF Determination Test (AKA the FDA Method and the ISO 24444:2019) measures UVB protection and results in the SPF rating value. For Beet The Sun, we found the exact rating to be 42 & 43 which fell under our projected 40 SPF rating.

    May Be the GOAT

    If you like wearing SPF and have facial hair Beet the Sun is for you. I've tried lots of SPF's that absorb well into the skin, but none have gone on without leaving a white cast or having to be aggressively rubbed into my facial hair until now. Beet the Sun is easy to apply, lightweight, absorbs quickly and doesn't leave a white cast on hair.

    Hi Isabella, thanks for giving Beet The Sun a shot, and we're so sorry to hear about your experience!

    While our products do not contain any highly clogging ingredients, the comedogenic potential of the formula will differ among individuals as that depends on the component of your skin’s sebum/oil production which becomes thicker or potentially pore-clogging when it is mixed with certain ingredients. With that said, we are sorry to hear that Beet The Sun didn't work out for you.

    In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us anytime at hello@kravebeauty.com. Have a great day!
