Sun Care & Tanning
After a close friend was diagnosed with skin cancer, Supergoop founder, Holly Thaggard, took it upon herself to educate herself about the dangers of sun exposure, before then teaching everyone she could about just how important wearing sun cream is. As a schoolteacher, Holly recognised that there was a lack of information surrounding sun protection within school curriculums, which further drove her passion to inform and spread the word around sun care products.
But that wasn't enough. Holly soon discovered that there was a resistance from both adults and children when it came to wearing sun cream every day – and the answer seemed pretty clear. People did not like sticky, smelly, chalky formulas that were packed with 'not so good for you' ingredients. This realisation sparked the birth of Supergoop.
Recognising that sun cream needed to be reinvented, Holly made it her mission to hunt down some amazing chemists and together created a totally reinvented sun cream formulation – the Everyday Sun Cream. This was the first clean sun cream to banish the likes of oxybenzone, parabens and propylene glycol, and better still, it both smelt and felt great.
Today, the brand has an impressive line-up of skin-loving formulations that work to protect your skin whilst wearing comfortably throughout the day.
