the forecast calls for sunscreen.

Understanding what’s inside the products you use shouldn’t slow down your fun in the sun. Here’s a quick overview on our sunscreens so you can get back to exploring the great outdoors.

let’s shine a light on some basic suncreen terms.

physical vs. chemical sunscreen

Physical sunscreen, with mineral active ingredients, is designed to sit on top of the skin & physically block UVA/UVB rays.

Chemical sunscreen uses non-mineral active ingredients and is designed to absorb into the skin & dissipate UVA/UVB rays.

broad spectrum

This term means a sunscreen product protects your skin from both UVA and UVB rays.

UVA/UVB

These types of ultraviolet radation damage the skin & increase your risk of skin cancer. UVB rays are the main culprit behind sunburn. UVA rays penetrate the skin more deeply and are associated with the effects of aging.

SPF

A.K.A. Sun Protection Factor. This number tells you comparatively how long the sun’s UVB rays will take to redden your skin if you apply the sunscreen (exactly as directed) versus with the amount of time without sunscreen. That means: if you use an SPF 50 product it will take you 50x longer to burn than if you used no sunscreen.

what about
what’s not in our suncare products?

Our sunscreens are made without PABA, oxybenzone, octinoxate, phthalates, parabens, fragrances or nanoparticles.

Our sunscreens are dermatologist tested, tear free, non-allergenic, and not tested on animals.

who, when & how much to use?

Babies under 6 months should not be exposed to the sun. Look for shade & adorable outfits to keep their skin covered.
Anyone over the age of 6 months should use sunscreen on exposed skin daily & year-round, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics and The Skin Cancer Foundation. Reapply often according to the package’s directions.
Sun exposure happens all year, not just in the warm summer months. Incidental exposure (through windows, on a quick walk, etc.) can still cause sunburns and create skin damage.
To ensure you get the full SPF benefit of a sunscreen, follow the package’s directions and be sure to reapply often. If you’re going swimming, use a water-resistant sunscreen.
Our sunscreens go on white, so you don’t miss a spot. They're easy to rub in and be on your way!

we want to protect our underwater friends, too.

Our sunscreens are Reef Safe, meaning they are made without oxybenzone & octinoxate. Some localities have banned these ingredients, suggesting that they may be damaging to reef ecosystems. So,
swim on & splash freely!
