Project Sunscreen surely has something to celebrate.
The California-based mineral sunscreen brand announced that it has been certified by PETA as an approved Global Beauty without Bunnies brand.
To obtain this approval from the organization, brands must include ethical and sustainable choices in regards to their formulas, packaging and innovation, the company said.
"When Project Sunscreen was born in 2016, we pledged from the beginning to create the best product possible without compromising our commitment to the planet," said CEO Rachel Henderson.
Products from the Aussie-inspired and dermatologist-developed sunscreen brand are created without the use of any proven or suspected toxic ingredients, are mineral based, and both reef- and ocean-friendly, as well as are free of fragrances, dyes, GMOs, oxybenzone, octinoxate, parabens and PABA, the company said.
"We never have — and never will — use animal-derived ingredients in our products. Not only are we cruelty-free, but we pledge to not sell into countries that conduct animal testing on cosmetic formulas," Henderson said. "PETA is the gold standard when it comes to compassionate consumerism, and receiving this designation is a high-water mark for Project Sunscreen."
PETA’s logo will be featured on Project Sunscreen packaging moving forward, the company said.
