10% of Profits Go To Saving Our Planet

Did you know, only 3% of total philanthropy is currently given to environmental causes? We would not exist without our incredible space ship Earth, yet it feels although we've forgotten our place.

The UVB rays, which carry the most energy are the chief cause of skin reddening and sunburn, and tend to damage the skin's more superficial epidermal layers. They play a key role in the development of skin cancer and a contributory role in tanning and photoaging.   The intensity of UVB rays varies by season, location, and time of day and is weakest in winter, which is why we feel we can escape being sunburnt 💪🏻🔥 !
