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.

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.
As someone who has grown up in Queensland, and having spent 21 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.

Formulating a sunscreen with ingredients which are certified organic, safe for consumers and our environment was very important to me.

 Surfpaste Tinted Sunscreen SPF30+

Surfpaste Tinted Sunscreen SPF30+

Surfpaste contains only certified organic ingredients and 38% 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. Our natural zinc sunscreen is suitable for all skin types.

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.

Surfpaste Tinted Sunscreen SPF30+ has been tested in Australia under our conditions and complies with Australian standards as a high protection broad spectrum sunscreen. So anyone who is serious about sun protection can rely on our product.

Surfpaste is such a great tan colour, the perfect shade for most skin tones, is easy to apply and stays on for hours.

Sun Protection Time

We recommend as with all sunscreens you should be reapplying Surfpaste every 2 hours for maximum sun protection.

For all you ladies, Surfpaste can be used as your sunscreen, concealer and foundation all in one product, similar to a BB Cream which helps to reduce premature ageing caused by sun exposure.
