Your Sunscreen Purchase Gives Back

2% of our revenue annually is donated to local ocean conservation initiatives

Your purchase helps to support ocean conservation and education! Did you know 2% of our revenue is donated to local ocean conservation initiatives? Read on to learn more about the awesome kaupapa we support and how you can help.

Over 15,000 marine species have been identified in New Zealand waters but scientists estimate that there may be as many as 65,000 species. The ocean is our best defence against climate change so protecting it and all the weird and wonderful creatures that call the ocean home is what we are all about!

Imagine the Blue Belt of Wellington sustaining a healthy and vibrant ocean forest; able to absorb more carbon than trees, improving water quality and providing habitat for thousands of marine creatures. Regenerating our seaweed forests is a way to make this a reality - and it’s what this project is all about.

Every time you purchase a tin of our sunscreen, a donation is made to support the establishment of the seaweed nursery which is a crucial part of the regeneration process.

What the team at Love Rimurimu has to say:

"We love being outdoors and getting some good ol' Vitamin D, but we hate the idea that the slippery white stuff we put on to keep us safe is making our oceans sick. The sad truth is that the majority of our sunscreens are filled with chemicals that harm our precious sea life. We love our friends at Seasick for giving us a better option."
