Is Sun Bum Cruelty-Free?

Sun Bum has confirmed that they are 100% cruelty-free. They don’t test their ingredients or final products on animals, and they don’t sell their products where animal testing is required by law. Sun Bum is not certified cruelty-free by any third-party cruelty-free organizations. Sun Bum is also owned by S.C. Johnson who is NOT cruelty-free.

Is Sun Bum Vegan?

Sun Bum is NOT a 100% vegan brand, but they do have a lot of vegan products. All of Sun Bum’s vegan products are listed here:

Sun Bum also has a Baby Bum line that is entirely vegan. If Sun Bum adds a new vegan product, you should be able to find it on this list.

Email to the Company

Before classifying any brand as cruelty-free and vegan, I send them an email with the following questions. 

  1. Are your products vegan? If only some are vegan, which ones?
  2. Are any of your products or ingredients tested on animals?
  3. Do you have a Leaping Bunny or PETA certification?
  4. Do your suppliers or any third parties test animals on your behalf?
  5. Does your company sell products in mainland China (except for Hong Kong and online sales)?
  6. Are you owned by a parent company that tests on animals?

This is how Sun Bum responded to my email:

We have a long list of vegan products, as well as a full Baby Bum line that is plant-based. The only non-vegan products are those that contain beeswax or honey. You can find the full list of vegan products here:
We do our R&D on our staff, family, and friends – we do not test our products on animals, and we do not contract for others to perform animal testing on our behalf. We do not currently sell within territories that require animal testing. With that in mind, we also do not pay for certification that states we are cruelty-free.
Our parent company owns many other brands that are not associated with Sun Bum, so we can only provide the relevant information on our own products and brand.
We’re still just a super small company out of Cocoa Beach, FL, and Encinitas, CA doing our best to make an awesome product we feel good about using to protect our friends and family.
