Green People is a UK-based organic skincare brand that specialises in natural and organic beauty products including skincare, haircare, body care, and sun care products. It is the Green People sun cream we consider in this review.
Green People place an emphasis on using natural and organic ingredients, avoiding harsh chemicals, and prioritising ethical and sustainable practices. Their products are often formulated with plant extracts, essential oils, and other natural ingredients. Green People has gained popularity for not only their commitment to producing environmentally friendly and skin-friendly products, but for those products being amazing to use too.
Created in 1997 by Charlotte, a Mother who simply wanted sensitive organic suncream for her daughter and found none available, the brand has gone from strength to strength.
What Green People Products we used?
Green People Sun Cream Factor 30
We used factor 30 Green People sun cream every day in Dubai. It was smooth and easy to apply, absorbed quickly and felt lovely when on. The cream is also fantastic for people with very sensitive skin, those prone to eczema and even those prone to prickly heat. Green People sun cream is made with chamomile, aloe vera, myrrh and also contains Rosemary which is said to soothe and nourish the skin. It suggests it has no scent but I disagree, I think it had a lovely scent although I couldn’t quite put my finger on what it smelled of. There is however no added fragrance or essential oils in the sun cream so any scent is naturally occurring from the raw materials.
Green People Organic Childrens sun cream is made with aloe vera, green tea, myrrh oil and edelweiss. It’s also 100% organic and 100% vegan too.
In our opinion it was incredibly similar in terms of how easy it was to apply and how it absorbed and we used both this and the Green People sun cream factor 30 referred to above interchangeably.
For the end of the day, after the shower, we used Green People After Sun Lotion. It smells lovely like mint, and feels cool as you rub it in. Green People After Sun Lotion is made with chamomile, calendula, apricot kernel oil, rosemary, mint and lavender oil, even the kids could be persuaded to apply some.
What we thought of Green People Sun Cream
Overall we really liked the Green People products. The easy absorption was a big hit with the kids.
Sun Cream that doesn’t stain clothes
I also really like the fact that the Green People Sun Cream didn’t seem to stain the clothes we were wearing like many sun creams often do. I can’t guarantee this obviously and in fact Green People do address staining in a blog post they wrote so it can occur.
I also love the Plant-based packaging which given all the plastic usually involved in sun cream is a fabulous idea.
Green People state on their website that they are proud to present their sun cream in a fully recyclable, renewable sugar cane tube with a favourable carbon emissions profile. Which means that for every 1 kilo of sugar cane plastic produced, 3 kilos of C02 is removed from our atmosphere. This exchange can be described as being climate positive.
