At Sunology, we’re committed to supporting causes that are reflective of our brand values and progressive nature. We are dedicated to the development of products derived from natural sources that are safer for you and the environment, and we strive to associate ourselves with organizations that are as committed to furthering public knowledge and global health as we are.
Sunology is honored to partner with the following organizations, which through their own efforts work to educate the public on the critical importance of safer sun care:
The Environmental Working Group
The Environmental Working Group is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to protecting human health and the environment. Their mission, much like our own, is to empower people to live healthier lives in a healthier environment.
To carry out this mission, the EWG conducts investigations through independent studies of suspected toxins and their impact on food and agriculture, environmental health, and water and energy. Through privately funded efforts, the EWG works to educate the public on the critical importance of safer consumer products such as sun care. For two decades the EWG has been committed to driving consumer choice by arming the public with revolutionary developments in ongoing debates over consumer safety.
We are proud to have received a number one rating from the EWG (the highest on their rating scale) for every Sunology product since the first formulation was available for purchase more than three years ago. Since 2014, Sunology has also been featured on the EWG’s Guide to Sunscreens, a comprehensive list of only sunscreens that meet the EWG’s criteria for containing gentle, “low hazard” ingredients. Visit the EWG for more information regarding the Guide to Sunscreens and the EWG hazard rating system here: 2016 Guide to Sunscreens.
The Leaping Bunny Program
Sunology is also honored to announce that we are Leaping Bunny certified, 100% cruelty-free. The Leaping Bunny organization was established to connect compassionate consumers to cruelty-free brands. Founded in 1996 with the purpose of clearing the air around cruelty-free shopping, Leaping Bunny has come to set the standard for cruelty-free labeling. All of the companies that hold the Leaping Bunny certification must comply with the same set of strict criteria laid out by the organization.
Sunology proudly displays the Leaping Bunny badge as it further communicates our mission to be all things better as a sunscreen option. Our cruelty-free certification goes hand in hand with our gentle-for you, gentle-on-the-environment mentality.
Sunology is reef friendly sunscreen. Using only mineral active ingredients that won’t harm the coral reefs or other ocean creatures Sunology is packaged in a combination of recycled and recyclable materials. Our concern with your future wellbeing extends beyond the immediate effects of sun safety and reaches well into environmental concerns, sustainability measures, and a general commitment to ingredients that are safe and gentle in every way.
As Sunology continues to grow, we aim to keep advancing our conscious and caring presence. We hope to inspire both consumers, and other brands, to change their behaviors by recognizing the global impact each and every one of us has in choices as seemingly small and simple as sunscreen.
