How does your sun cream directly appeal to those who partake in action sports?
After spending years in the water, and getting an occasional sunburn while at it, we are convinced that maximum sun protection is needed to be able to enjoy our favourite sports to the fullest. Like most, we do not conceive that our sun protection could put our health at risk or harm the planet (every year, more than 14 000 tons of sunscreen end up in the oceans).
With the knowledge in dermatological formulation acquired during four generations of pharmacists and following our philosophy, “there are only two places you can’t leave: your body and the planet”, we offer a high-quality product that guarantees the highest levels of sun protection even in the most extreme conditions while being completely respectful towards our health and the planet.
That is why our products are:
- 0% chemical filters
- 0% NANO ingredients
- Very High Protection UVB / UVA / IR
- SPF 50 / 50+
- Ocean & reef respect
- Highly biodegradable
- Natural Index certified

All of our products are developed and manufactured in Barcelona meeting the maximum European quality standards.
What materials are you using? Any innovations to talk about?
We apply our brand philosophy “ there are only two places you can’t leave: your body and the planet” to everything we do, including our packaging.
All of our packagings is designed to minimize their environmental impact, even if this means that we have to use different materials with each product.

Any exciting marketing campaigns coming up for your product line?
We are starting in a different way from the conventional Marketing plans. Normally companies create a budget to be spent in communications, outdoors, riders salary, etc. With NUURA we decided to grab that budget and to produce samples of what we do the best and sent it, offering, to key role opinion leaders that will give us the image we really want by using our products. We are talking of personalities that belong to the action sports world, like a mountain bike, Surf, Windsurf, Sail, Snow and so on, where the sun exists. We want to be a premium brand in the sunscreens market.
