why this product

The first sunscreens appeared on the market in the 1930s and ’40s, but they were unpopular due to their white color and thick, pasty consistency that sat conspicuously on top of the skin (think Jeff Spicoli of Fast Times at Ridgemont High). Scientists remedied this by formulating synthetic sunscreens with clear chemicals that absorb ultraviolet light and blend easily and undetectably into the skin. However, this created a whole new problem, since the unknown and possibly poisonous chemicals can potentially leach into our systems through our largest organ: our skin. This natural, mineral-based sunscreen has a non-greasy texture that blocks harmful light rays. It may leave a touch of whiteness in its wake, since it doesn’t rub in but creates a physical barrier between your skin and the sun. The formula contains only 11 ingredients, each benefitting and moisturizing the skin while out in the sun – including natural beeswax, which makes the sunscreen water-resistant. So feel free to take a dip.

use & care

Apply over face, ears and lips every two hours for sun protection. 

production & design

A devoted skier and surfer, Shawn Biega spends countless hours in the sun with his family and friends. Although conscientious to always apply sunscreen, he was also dismayed to find that available sun care products were full of greasy, chemical-laden formulas that traded one danger for another. After years of research and testing on himself in surf and snow, Shawn developed his natural line of skincare products. The highest SPF they offer is 31, since anything over that quotient delivers unnecessary chemicals and only incrementally increases protection by one or two percent. The company is based in Utah’s mountains, where they ski and continue to learn more about the sun’s negative and positive effects.
