save our skin
The skin is the reflection of your inner health and happiness. Inside and outside stressors damage our skin. Keep your skin protected and healthy even in the toughest environments.
COVER WHAT YOU CAN
Wear a hat, every inch of brim can reduce your skin cancer risk by 10%. Wear sunglasses and UPF clothing. The tighter the weave and darker the color, the better protection it offers.
BE AWARE OF THE UV INDEX
Myriad factors impact the sun that reaches your skin. Clouds filter 20%, snow reflects 90% & water reflects 10% of radiation. The higher the UV index the less time the sun needs to harm your skin.
KNOW YOUR SKIN CANCER RISK
Factors including skin lightness, hair and eye color, and family history increase your risk of skin cancer. To protect your skin, you should use an all mineral, water-resistant SPF 50 sunscreen.

THE SECRET TO THE ANTIAGING REVOLUTION
"Skin aging" is caused by oxidative reactions in the skin that are catalysed by intrinsic and extrinsic stressors such as UV exposure. UVA is mainly responsible for oxidative damage and it not only can cause skin cancer indirectly but induces irregular pigment formation in the skin, damages lipids and thereby drying the skin and destroys collagen causing fine lines and wrinkles. Antioxidants, used in proper formulations, fight oxidative damage, serve as the second line of defense, delaying skin aging and helping to maintain skin youth and health.

THE ABCDE'S OF MELANOMA
Check your spots for...
- Asymetry If you were to fold it in half, the two sides wouldn't line up.
- Border An irregular, uneven, or poorly defined border.
- Color Color varies from one area to another, including shades of tan, brown, black, and even red, white, and blue.
- Diameter Usually larger than 6 millimeters when diagnosed (the size of a pencil eraser), but they can be smaller.
- Evolving A mole that is changing in size, shape, or color, or looks different from the rest.
If you observe any kind of change on a mole, see your dermatologist.

Save our sailors
Sailors, by the nature of our love for the water, are exposed to high levels of radiation, and are at high risk of skin cancer and early ageing. Find out how our formulas protect people at sea.
Save our seas
Chemical filters in sunscreens are proven to kill coral and harm the marine habitat. Our sunscreen only uses all-mineral filters, so that we can protect the seas that we share.
