Born from the love of nature

As surf teachers and outdoor fanatics we had grown tired of not being able to find high performing sunscreens which were also safe for nature. We realised if we wanted environmentally friendly, highly functional natural sunscreens we had to create them ourselves - so that's what we did.

OUR ENVIRONMENTAL MISSION

Every year, 14 000 tons of sunscreen are washed into the ocean from swimmers, leading to widespread destruction of marine life. 10% of the world’s coral reefs are threatened by bleaching caused by the most commonly used chemical UV-filter, Oxybenzone. To counter the problem, at Suntribe we scientifically validate our sunscreens to be 100% safe for marine life. We are also proud to be partnering with Nordic Ocean Watch and Sea Going Green - two organisations focused on reducing the negative impact us humans have on the oceans of our planet.

TRUSTED BY PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES


For athletes taking on demanding challenges in extreme weather conditions, it’s especially important to be confident in the sunscreen they use. For this reason, Suntribe is the choice of numerous professional athletes around the world.

As part of the tribe, we count Swedish pro surfer Tim Latte, British kitesurfing champion Rachael Hooper and the Olympic class sailors Jimmy & Ubo. So whether you surf giant waves on a far away tropical coast or sail around the world you can feel certain Suntribe is up to the challenge.

NATURAL SUNSCREENS YOU CAN TRUST

Wondering whether a natural sunscreen can protect you against the sun just as well as a conventional one? Don't worry. All Suntribe sunscreens offer broad spectrum protection against both UVA and UVB-rays and are certified by independent laboratories.

Our sunscreens have achieved the highest possible rating in regards to safety for human health and the environment by acclaimed organisations such as the Environmental Working Group (EWG.org) and the Clean Beauty Awards (cleanbeautyawards.com).


SPF 30 VERSUS SPF 50

We are often asked why we do not offer SPF 50 products. The reason is simple: the difference between SPF 30 and SPF 50 is only 1 percent measured in protection.

SPF 50 sunscreens do not offer significantly more protection and can mislead people into thinking they have more protection than they actually do. For this reason we never go above SPF 30.

  • 🌞 Sun Fun Fact No 7: Not all sunscreen are created equal⁠
⁠
👆 The biggest differentiator is the type of UV-filter used: chemical or mineral ⁠
✌️ Mineral UV-filters are also referred to as physical UV-filters because they build a physical layer on top of your skin that protects you from the sun immediately after application⁠
⁠
🙂 Mineral sunscreens can leave a white cast right after application, which almost entirely disappears within a few minutes and the more diligently you rub them in ⁠
⁠
😯 Chemical UV-filters on the other hand need to penetrate your skin to become effective, which is why they start protecting you only 20 minutes after application ⁠
⁠
🐡 They are linked to severe sideeffects for human and nature including coral reef bleaching and hormonal disruption in sea animals and humans, resulting for example in infertility⁠
⁠
👉 Knowing this, mineral sunscreens are the obvious choice! By choosing a mineral sunscreen you protect the reefs, the oceans and your own health - triple win! ⁠
⁠

  • 🤔 Which other concerns or questions do you have in relation to sunscreen? Sun protection can be very confusing so we're happy to clarify your questions! ⁠🙂

  • 🌞 Sun Fun Fact No 6: You need sun protection when being inside too ⁠
⁠
👆 Most of us remember to put on sunscreen before we head out into the sun but did you know that UVA rays (which cause skin ageing) also reach through glass windows for example? ⁠
⁠
🚙 This means you should also apply sunscreen when driving in a car or working inside a building with direct sun light⁠
⁠
🙌 To make it easier for you to apply sunscreen on a daily basis, we have developed our naturally tinted and mattifying day cream! You can use it under your make-up or replace your make-up with it entirely ⁠
⁠
✌️ Of course it exclusively contains Non-Nano Zinc Oxide as a mineral UV-filter and is 100% free from microplastics, preservatives and perfume⁠

  • ⁠🌞 Sun Fun Fact No 5: Why SPF 30 is the new SPF 50 ⁠
⁠
🤔 Oftentimes we get asked why we only offer SPF 30 (and lower) but no SPF 50 sunscreens. There are several reasons: ⁠
⁠
1) SPF 30 blocks 97% of UVB rays, whereas SPF 50 blocks 98% of UVB rays - the difference being a meager 1% ⁠👆
⁠
2) Oftentimes the actual cause of too little sun protection is that not enough sunscreen was applied. An  insufficiently applied SPF 50 sunscreen can be less protective than a correctly applied SPF 30 sunscreen ⁠👆
⁠
3) If we wanted to offer an SPF 50 sunscreen, we'd have to use additional UV-filters that are less safe than non-nano Zinc Oxide. For example nanosized Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide (which degrades when in contact with UV-light or chlorine) or, even worse, chemical UV-filters ⁠👆
⁠
👉 While there's much misleading information out there about why you would need an SPF 50 sunscreen, this myth is slowly being resolved. Governments are starting to cap the SPF rating, in Australia for example the highest possible SPF rating for a sunscreen is SPF 30⁠

  • 🌞 Sun Fun Fact No 4: "Reef safe" is not a protected term, meaning that it can easily be used for greenwashing ⁠
⁠
🐠 Instead of trusting a label claiming that a sunscreen is "reef safe" you should check the ingredient list yourself. 👉 Here's the two main UV-filters currently considered to be the safest options for corals and human health alike: ⁠
⁠
- Non-Nano Zinc Oxide (the only UV-filter we use)⁠
- Non-Nano Titanium Dioxide ⁠
⁠
🐡 If a sunscreen contains any of the following ingredients it is definitely NOT reefsafe: ⁠
⁠
- Oxybenzone ⁠
- Avobenzone ⁠
- Octinoxate ⁠
- Octocrylene ⁠
- PABA / 4-Aminobenzoic Acid
- 4-Methylbenzylidene Camphor ⁠
- Nano Zinc Oxide ⁠
- Nano Titanium Dioxide ⁠
⁠
🐟 These commonly used sunscreen ingredients can affect marine wildlife in the following ways: ⁠
⁠
⁠- Green Algae: Can impair growth and photosynthesis⁠
- Coral: Accumulates in tissues. Can induce bleaching, damage DNA, deform young, and even kill⁠
- Mussels: Can induce defects in young⁠
- Sea Urchins: Can damage immune and reproductive systems, and deform young⁠
- Fish: Can decrease fertility and reproduction, and cause female characteristics in male fish⁠
- Dolphins: Can accumulate in tissue and be transferred to young⁠

🙌 Easy enough to see why you should always choose a mineral based sunscreen, that is a sunscreen that is based on either Non-Nano Zinc Oxide or Non-Nano Titanium Dioxide. Help us spread the word! ⁠ 📷 Photo by @montannacoolson

🌞 Sun Fun Fact No 3: Chemical sunscreen ingredients have already been banned in 6 countries and regions around the world - a reason for joy! ⁠
⁠
🐢 It started small: in Mexico and Galapagos for example you're told not to put on chemical sunscreen in order to protect these fragile ecosystems
⁠
🌺 Then Hawaii officially put a ban the two most toxic sunscreen ingredients (Oxybenzone and Octinoxate) ⁠
⁠
✌️Followed suit by Palau, which became the first nation worlwide to ban sunscreen chemicals, the list includes 10 commonly used chemical sunscreen ingredients. ⁠
⁠
🙌 Since then, more countries and regions have joined the regulatory movement for reefsafe sunscreen: Bonaire, Key West, the U.S. Virgin Island ⁠
