Eleanor Killen (aka Elk Draws), the legend behind the SunButter logo, has penned some cute notes on the genesis of the design...

"SunButter was one of the first logos I ever created and was brought to life in the first few months of 2017. 
I remember it went something like this...
Plus 40 outside. 
Perched in my studio oven.
Resisting the urge for aircon. 
The aircon that screamed like a 747 jet. 

Pre-iPad or Adobe design suite. 
Sweaty arm sticking to the page. 
The page a tangle of ideas. 
Ideas in pen, pencil, pastels and paint.
Fan blasting hot ceiling air. 



Days and emails passed. 
Phone chats and giggles with Sach.
Phone chats and stories with Tom. 
The wave got drawn. 
CMYK, RGB and Pantone wreaked havoc. 
But thankfully the colours were found and the logo was born!



We are now three years later and @sunbuttersuncare are kicking goals and have some epic products! Super proud of founders @sachaguggenheimer and @tom.wildlife.travel and excited by what's to come for them."

Our plastic-free journey began before SunButter was even born. As ocean lovers working, playing and relaxing on coastlines, we watched the tide of plastic slowly creep into the ocean both from street litter and from far-away places.

DIY oatmeal face scrub for yummy skin
DIY oatmeal face scrub for yummy skin

June 02, 2020

We absolutely lurrrve this face scrub. Made with oats, almond oil and spices, it will leave your skin looking, smelling and feeling utterly delicious. And the best thing about it is that it's homemade using ingredients you probably already have lying around (meaning a lower carbon footprint, less packaging and fewer nasty chemicals).
