Each year we purchase over one million sunscreen items from supermarkets in New Zealand.* All in plastic.
We're changing the face of sunscreen by putting our certified natural, water-free sunscreen into a refillable packaging system, without plastic tubes or bottles.
Two years in the making, and hard won, introducing Sustainable Sunscreen. From personal size, to families, clubs, teams and workplaces- this is a sunscreen system that works at every level.
It all starts with that cutie little size that fits right in the palm of your hand. Your purse. Your pocket. Backpack. Even tucked into a wetsuit or togs! Because using sunscreen means having your sunscreen with you when you need it, it needs to be small. To have it handy to apply and reapply.
Then, every now and then, you refill, using a spoon, from your larger size stored at home or workplace. How's that!? Too easy.
Here's a couple of things to know-
Our custom made stainless steel comes with 200g of certified natural, water-free SPF 50 and 2 hr water resistant sunscreen. This is a LOT of sunscreen, because water-free sunscreen is efficient. Once you begin to use it, it's best to use through it in six months. This is because over time, air begins to oxidise the beautiful oils. It would be sad to have to rubbish this because you did not use through it.
If you are new to our sunscreen, or are not sure how much you need, we suggest you start with our Sustainable Sunscreen Starter Kit to test drive the whole system for yourself.
It all starts with how many people need sunscreen
Each person gets their own personal tin- and each can be personalised. Then, in a central place, there's our stainless steel 200g sunscreen for refill using a spoon to add sunscreen to the small personal tins as needed.
What team around you needs sunscreen? What workplace needs sunscreen?
This is health and safety meets sustainability in sunscreen- we'll call it sunstainability
Celebrate with us- as we tick off one more thing that you no longer need to have in plastic. Sunscreen is one small thing, but it's no small thing. Thanks for changing the world with us.
