According to popular belief black people don’t need sunscreen as we have our rich melanin shield to protect us from the sun rays. Let’s disband that fallacy as we are here to tell you right now that notion is absolutely false. Melanin does not protect against all forms of damage. UV rays may still damage the skin cells and put black people at risk of skin cancer.
Despite skin cancer being quite low amongst black people it is still imperative that we keep our skin protected.
For those that have attempted to try and protect their skin from sun rays but had no luck with cast-less sunscreens we’ve gathered a black skin friendly list below.
