While many fashion and beauty brands have embraced the world’s diversity, work still needs to be done to make the industries truly inclusive. Katonya Breaux, founder of new sunscreen brand Unsun, spent years trying to find a natural, tinted sunscreen.

The tint provides a glow to lighter skin tones and blends in effortlessly with a broad spectrum of darker and olive-toned skins.
