Welcome to my journey to help protect your skin from sun damage.
I grew up in Queensland, Australia on a farm and close to the beach, so I had a pretty amazing lifestyle.
At every opportunity as children we were enjoying the outdoors and sunshine. In my teen years along with friends we were regularly at the beach, laying in the sun to gain that gorgeous tan.
In my 20s after studying Beauty Therapy I realised those years in the sun were not such a good idea without sun protection.
Welcome to my journey to help protect your skin from sun damage, providing you with a product which is safe for you and our environment.
As someone who has grown up in Queensland, and having spent 18 years in Noosa I have had my own fair share of sun and have had several skin cancers removed. So to me, prevention is the key and the next step was to find products which could prevent more skin cancers. After searching for a tinted sunscreen I could use on my face and not finding one I liked, I decided to formulate a product which can be used as both a foundation and sunscreen, similar to a BB Cream and Surfpaste was created.
Surfpaste Sunscreen SPF30+ contains only certified organic ingredients and non - nano zinc oxide, all the ingredients I chose for my product are highly beneficial for the skin.
The high levels of antioxidants from the certified organic oils protect and repair the skin from damage and premature ageing.
For anyone that struggles with sensitive or acne-prone skin, the zinc oxide in Surfpaste helps to soothe the inflammation and may reduce sebum production.
Formulating a product with ingredients which are certified organic, safe for consumers and our environment was also very important to me.
Stay safe in the sun everyone!
