Shontay Lundy is the Founder of Black Girl Sunscreen (BGS). In 2016, when Shontay became tired of using sunscreen that left a white residue, she decided to leverage her MBA and knack for business to develop a melanin friendly option for women who look like her. The groundbreaking product has not only provided women with darker skin tones with a healthy option to protect their skin, but the brand has cultivated a strong reputation for empowering black women.
With a sharp-witted and creative personality, Shontay has continued to fuel her passion by traveling the world educating women of color on the importance of wearing sunscreen. Shontay’s success has been chronicled by Forbes, Black Enterprise, and countless other national media outlets.
Today, BGS is the only indie black-owned brand sold in Target’s sun care section full time.
