Is Ultrasun an ethical sun protection brand?

Founded by Willem Fabels, a Swiss chemist whose brother had been a victim of skin cancer, Ultrasun is a popular sun protection brand.

Unfortunately, within The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Sun Protection sector, Ultrasun has a below-benchmark score and as a result, cannot yet be classed as an ethical brand.

Despite not quite reaching our minimum Ethical Benchmark, we still encourage Ultrasun to get in touch and apply for Ethical Accreditation. After we received its application, The Good Shopping Guide would be able to offer Ultrasun an evaluation and some advice on how to work on its bottom scores.

Would you like to see how Ultrasun compares against other brands within the Ethical Sun Protection sector? Visit the Sun Protection Ethical Ratings Table. The Good Shopping Guide’s Ratings Table can teach you all about the criteria that our top-rated brands fulfilled in order to meet our minimum Ethical Benchmark.

All brands are encouraged by The Good Shopping Guide to follow in the footsteps of our top-rated brands and adopt more sustainable policies.

What does Ultrasun receive a top score for?

For its lack of negative criticism, Ultrasun receives a top rating for our research categories of Genetic Modification and Political Donations.

Why does Ultrasun receive a bottom rating for its Environmental Report?

Lalique Group, Ultrasun’s parent company has a recent Sustainability Report. However, it does not contain any targets and also has limited evidence of progress on previous targets.

What could Ultrasun do to improve its score? 

Ultrasun’s below-benchmark score within The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Sun Protection sector is the result of a calculation of a variety of ethical criteria.

As it has a low score in the Ethical Sun Protection sector we recommend that Ultrasun get in touch and apply for Ethical Accreditation. By getting in touch and applying, Ultrasun would receive tailored ESG/ CSR advice and business ethics consultation from The Good Shopping Guide on how to become one of our best sun cream brands.
