Spring’s warm weather is here and the brash summer sun is just around the corner, which means many of us will need to use a sunblock to protect our skin when we’re outdoors for extended periods of time. When it’s time to cover up, sunblocks from 3rd Rock Sunblock are great vegan and cruelty-free options.
Who is 3rd Rock Sunblock?
3rd Rock Sunblock is a company that makes super-effective vegan and cruelty-free sunblocks from plant-based, food-grade ingredients. All of the company’s sunblocks are free of synthetic ingredients and toxic substances that harm the earth and human skin. And, they’re free of animal ingredients and any cruelty by way of testing on animals.
When you buy a 3rd Rock Sunblock product, you get your hands on the world’s only alkaline sunscreen that’s made with unparalleled UVA protection. All 3rd Rock Sunblock products are petrol free too, which means they’re perfect for those who have sensitive skin or simply want to keep damaging substances off of their body.
3rd Rock Sunblock’s Motto and Mission
3rd Rock Sunblock says, “If you wouldn’t put it in your mouth, why would you put it on your skin?” This makes complete sense to us, so we thank the company’s founder, Guerry Grune, for coming up with his pure products that were inspired by his surfing adventures in Hawaii, Australian, Costa Rica, and even Japan.
Guerry is a long-time surfer who may have spent his entire life in the sun, and in the water, if not for finding out in 1992 about his long-time surfing partner who was diagnosed with a melanoma. Guerry’s buddy was just 22 years old at the time, and he had his surfing career cut short due to sun overexposure that may have been preventable.
Over the years that followed Guerry’s friend’s diagnosis, Guerry had a hard time finding an effective sunblock or sunscreen for use on his surfing adventures. He decided to make his own product with titanium dioxide (an inorganic agent that won’t break down in the sun), but his original product contained many dangerous synthetic ingredients that were later called “endocrine disrupters.”
Guerry got back to work on his perfect sunblock, with the help of many experts, and he come up with a sunblock that worked, contained ingredients that wouldn’t harm the body or the skin, and that was animal-product free so that all of the earth’s creatures could stay safe.
