Sustainability

Sunscreen, our environment and the seasick solution

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...

Saving water

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. We're using aluminium tins for now, but are fully committed to finding a home-compostable alternative. The sustainability journey is a work-in-progress for us all.

Certified sustainable palm oil 

The demand for unsustainably produced palm oil from the cosmetics industry is destroying our rainforests. While you won't find palm oil listed on our ingredients, some of our ingredients are derived from Roundtable Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO).  RSPO certification is an assurance that the standard of palm oil production is sustainable.
