Join Our Mission

Are you fed up with conventional sunscreen running and stinging your children’s eyes or causing painful skin irritations? A lot of people avoid wearing sunscreen because it smells bad and has a greasy feel. On top of this, many conventional brands of sunscreen have failed to meet their SPF claims.

Protect your skin (and your family) against the risk of melanoma and skin damage by using our natural sunscreen made with zinc and 100% naturally-derived ingredients, specifically developed for sensitive skin. Our sunscreen is unscented, feels great and your kids won’t get any nasty skin irritations…plus, it’s plastic free and your purchase contributes to ocean conservation.
You can feel relaxed and confident knowing Seasick Sunscreen Co has got you covered.

Meet the Maker

Kia ora!  My name is Nat - that's me there next to the octopuses (or octopi depending on who you talk to)

As a redheaded sun worshipper who loves surfing, hiking and diving, sunscreen is a daily essential for me. I'm also a passionate conservationist - that's why I went on a mission to create an ocean-friendly sunscreen in plastic-free packaging I know I can trust to protect my skin without harming the environment.

After doing a great deal of research, I turned my kitchen into a lab and began formulating my own sunscreen. I figured less was best so my first sunscreen was made with just four naturally-derived ingredients. I spent the next three years listening to customer feedback and am stoked to have launched a new and improved Daily Face and Body Sunscreen in 2022. We are based in Wellington, Aotearoa and are 100% NZ made and operated.

Ngā mihi nui, thank you so much for your support!
