Hello, I'm Sue Ingram and I've lived most of my life in Africa. I have a love of the outdoors, and sunshine.

Africa gets a lot of sunshine!

My dual interests in health and the environment led me to research the benefits of natural and organic products and because of my love of the outdoors I focused on sun protection.

Let me tell you what we've been doing for the past 3+ years (I say 'we' as I've been working with 5 independent laboratories, 3 biochemists, 2 photo biologists, and several technical and field researchers)...

This statement encapsulates the principles that have guided my research...

'To produce a sunscreen that provides...


  • effective, stable, high level protection against both UVA and UVB light
  • protection against free radical damage and atmospheric toxins
  • active natural nutrients to reverse the effects of damage and ensure against future damage
  • that every ingredient provides a clear and direct benefit and is not merely a 'filler' or included to 'look good' in the ingredients list

Number 2 is a favorite of mine! Here's why...

The cutaneous antioxidant system is complex, interlinked and operates as a network. Because of this, an enhanced photo protective effect can be obtained by applying appropriate combinations of antioxidants. These combinations act synergistically. This has been a prime focus of our research...

...to find natural ingredients that are also effective.

The discovery of a unique combination of plant extracts is the key 'hidden secret' to being able to substitute these 'botanicals' for the harmful chemical filters found in almost all sunscreens sold today.

To your good health in the sun,
