Our Story

 
Having a love of the outdoors and the glorious benefits of sunshine, together with a deep interest
in health and the environment, I was led into research of the benefits of natural and organic suncare products. This, together with the fact that I have lost both a brother and a cousin far too early in life to melanoma, ignited the desire to obtain a uniquely healthy option.

Working with 5 independent laboratories, 3 biochemists, 2 photo biologists, and several technical and field researchers, we finally produced a sunscreen that provides:
- effective, stable, high level protection against both UVA and UVB light
- protection against free radical damage and atmospheric toxins
- active natural nutrients to reverse the effects of damage and ensure against future damage
- that every ingredient provides a clear and direct benefit and is not merely a 'filler' or included to 'look good' in the ingredients list

A prime focus of our research has been to find natural ingredients that are also effective in sun protection. An enhanced photo protective effect can be obtained by applying appropriate combinations of antioxidants, which act synergistically. This is basically due to the fact that the cutaneous antioxidant system is complex, interlinked and operates as a network.

The discovery of a unique combination of plant extracts is the key 'hidden secret' to being able to substitute these 'botanicals' for the harmful chemical filters found in almost all sunscreens sold today.
