The best investment for Summer is a trusty sunscreen that never let you down (in protection). If you are like us and ask more about your skincare, you are likely in the look for something that does more for your skin and the environment. SOS SPF 50 checks all these boxes.

Loved and raved by the UK vegan creator community, SOS SPF 50 is already a cult classic online. This broad-spectrum sunscreen is empowered by active plant stem cells and is completely Coral reef-safe.

SOS SPF 50, The Formula

This SOS Serum sunscreen is the point of arrival in skincare research. SOS SPF 50 sun cream combines mineral-filter sunblock and anti-ageing in one bottle to ensure broad-spectrum protection from UVA/UVB and blue light, and to shield from free radicals causing earlier ageing. The moisturising formula uses an ultra-sheer form of zinc oxide to protect from both UVA/UVB rays and blue light, anti-inflammatory Vitamin E and soybean stem cells to actively reduce wrinkles and increase skin firmness.

If this is not enough, SOS SPF 50 sun cream is skin-friendly thanks to its fragrance-free and non-comedogenic formulation that is suitable for face, body and all skin types. This product is a passe-partout for the holidays of the whole family, including children.

A common issue found in many sunscreens is their poor survival rate to water and sweat. SOS SPF 50 is waterproof and featherlight. Its formulator, chemist Bruce Green, calls it 'Gore-Tex for the skin’! With SOS SPF 50 your skin can breathe but wears waterproof protection like Gore-Tex.


  • Non-sensitising, non-greasy and non-whitening formulation
  • Mineral-based filters
  • 5 Ultra rating (tested according to the Boots star rating system)
  • Delivers ultimate UVA, UVB and blue light protection
  • With active plant stem cells to protect the skin from photo-ageing and radical-induced damages
  • Infused with antioxidants to help fight the effects of damaging free radicals

SOS SPF 50 is cruelty-free and coral reef-safe, but how did SOS Serum Skincare create this sustainable sun cream?

Bruce Green, chemist and founder says: 'Sustainable cosmetic is seeing rising consumer enthusiasm; sunscreens are a key segment where this is of notable importance. Euromonitor predicts that ethical skincare will be one of the leading trends. Non-Toxic, not just to you, but most importantly, to the world’s oceans, where up to 6,000 tons of sunscreen end up each year. Avoiding reef damaging chemicals like oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate, octinoxate, 4 -methylbenzylidene, camphor, PABA, and triclosan is of the utmost importance to preserve marine ecosystems. Also ensuring products are Palm oil-free, use ethical ingredient sourcing policies, recyclable packaging, and are vegan & cruelty-free.'

SOS Serum Skincare SOS SPF 50 is available online in three sizes: 15 ml (£5), 50ml (£15), and 200ml (£30).
