A lightweight chemical sunscreen that’s made to look and feel like your skin. It has UV and antioxidant properties from supercharged beetroot extract to help defend against the sun and other environmental aggressors without any extra drama.

A Simple Solution to a Once-Complicated SPF Protection

We’ve all been there before. You’ve completed your skincare routine and now you’re trying to find the right sunscreen so you can get on with your day. But now you’re faced with so many options and too many SPF facts that’re making you, your brain, and your skin go haywire.

Enter Beet The Sun SPF 40 PA+++! We formulated it to remove the barrier that once made us stressed out when thinking about sun protection. With its truly universal formula and full transparency from production to launch, it’s the sunscreen you know that has your back and wants to keep reaching for 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.

How to recycle

Step 1: Clean and separate! Before recycling, make sure you rinse the tube and cap so that they’re completely free of product. It’s important to separate the cap from the tube.

Step 2: Investigate! The tube is made from 90% PCR CoEx tube. Unfortunately, because CoEx is a mix of 3 different plastics (LDPE, PCR HDPE, and EVOH), it is not currently recyclable throughout most of the U.S., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. The cap is made from 100% PCR PP [5] cap. PP is a “rigid plastic” so it can be recycled through some curbside programs. We recommend checking with your local recycling.

Step 3: Recycle (the cap)! If your local recycling program accepts type 5 plastic, feel free to toss the cap into your recycling bin.

Materials Used
Tube: 90% PCR CoEx tube
Cap: 100% PCR PP [5] cap
Box: FSC paper and soy based inks

    Love under make up

    Love to wear this under my make up. Light weight and easily reapplied without feeling liked you are adding a bunch of layers to your face.

    Good but miss the OG beet shield

    This sunscreen is still very good, I just can’t get over the fluidity and blendability of the Beet Sheild. I find that this one feels a little grainy/more like traditional sunscreen on the skin and not as moisturizing. I still enjoy it especially for the glow but if you are listening Krave please bring back the beet shield 😉

    Love it but truly miss the Beet Shield

    I was super excited when I heard this sunscreen was making a come back and really missed having it in my routine. Everything seemed the same with the new formula but now I’m having really dry skin and patches. I also have a bit of texture but it’s not a full breakout. I love this product and brand, so I’m trying to find moisturizing products to help with the dry patchy areas, but I’m not sure it’s going to work. I also wish they had different packaging.. the product leaks into the cap and gets messy. I’ve learned to live with it but rather not waste product.

    Sunscreen formula is great, packaging may be faulty?

    I love the sunscreen itself. Its easy to apply and doesn't have an overpowering sunscreen smell. The only issue is that the cap doesn't seem to close tightly enough so it leaking sunscreen into the cap. This means when I store it cap-side down it leaks a bunch of sunscreen and becomes messy. I wouldn't feel comfortable putting this in my bag. When I store it cap-side up (upside down basically) this doesn't happen so that's how I store it on my desk. I'm hoping that this is a fluke of my particular package and not a consistent problem. I'll probably re-order it since this is not a huge issue for me at the moment but if my next bottle has the same problem I may not be willing to repurchase until packaging is updated.

    Love this sunscreen!! 💚

    I just finished the bottle and it was such an amazing sunscreen! The texture is light and leaves your skin GLOWING! I have combo/oily skin and never had any issues with this. I would recommend it for sure but just be mindful around the eyes. It’s a chemical sunscreen so you might feel some sensitivity, but if you’re careful it shouldn’t be an issue!!
