Plastic-free sunscreen and sustainable practices
Seasick was born out of our desire to reduce the amount of pollution from sunscreen chemicals and plastic bottles entering our oceans. Protecting the environment is at the heart of what we do - that's why we take a holistic approach to sustainability.
By choosing our product you are...
Up to 70% of a chemical sunscreen is water. Counter-intuitive? Yes, water is a precious resource and that's why Seasick Sunscreen doesn't contain any! This also means a little goes a long way.
Saying no to plastic
Plastic is choking our oceans. Given up plastic bags and straws? ... Let us help you make your skincare more sustainable! Our aluminium tins are reusable or recyclable, our labels are made of paper and we ship online orders in home-compostable (certified) packaging. The sustainability journey is a work-in-progress for us all but we continue to strive for the most sustainable option in all areas of our business.
Certified sustainable palm oil
While you won't find palm oil listed on our ingredients, we are required to declare that some of our ingredients MAY contain Roundtable Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). RSPO certification is an assurance that the standard of palm oil production is sustainable.
Thanks for supporting a NZ made sunscreen business rather than an international corporation. At Seasick, caring for our environment and local community is at the heart of everything we do.
