Aloha Care Story
As frequent travelers we have seen so many beautiful beaches full of plastic waste. We decided to make a step forward and create a sunscreen in plastic-free packaging, based mostly on natural ingredients – healthy for the skin and safe for the environment. Being surfers ourselves we understand the needs of water sports enthusiasts – we aimed to create a product that we would personally enjoy using – water resistant, easy to apply, with strong sun protection and simply fun!
Why choose our suncare products?
Our Aloha Sun Sticks provide high, mineral sun protection for your face, lips and sensitive areas even during long sessions in the water or on adventurous days. Formulated with natural ingredients, and only non-nano mineral filters. Designed for outdoor and nature lovers, in eco-friendly zero-waste packaging. Safe for corals according to the Hawaiian law and the American National Ocean Service. Made in compliance with restrictive EU regulations.
Effective Sun Protection
High protection against UVB and UVA radiation. The SPF factor was proven by the accredited laboratory according to strict EU regulations.
Both sticks are based on mineral UV filters (titanium dioxide & zinc oxide) which creates a mineral shield. For your safety, our products do not contain any nano-particles.
The formulas are non-toxic to reefs according to the Hawaii Law. We search for efficient ingredients which are marine life safe.
Eco-friendly, plastic-free paper tube
It is made of multiple kraft paper layers, which makes it durable and possible to use even with wet hands. FSC certified.
The sunscreens formulas are laboratory verified as water-resistant. With the SPF 50+, thanks to the colours you can see how long the coating stays on your face:)

How sunscreen chemicals enter our environment?
The sunscreen you apply may not stay on your skin – especially when we do water sports, swim, jump in the water, rub our body etc. Also, when we shower, sunscreen may wash off and enter our waterways.
How sunscreen chemicals can affect marine life?
- Green Algae: Can impair growth and photosynthesis.
- Coral: Accumulates in tissues. Can induce bleaching, damage DNA, deform young, and even kill.
- Mussels: Can induce defects in young.
- Sea Urchins: Can damage immune and reproductive systems, and deform young.
- Fish: Can decrease fertility and reproduction, and cause female characteristics in male fish.
- Dolphins: Can accumulate in the tissue and be transferred to young.
That is why it’s so important to read your sunscreen’s ingredient lists, educate your friends and choose products that are marine-life-friendly!
