How does your sun cream appeal to those who partake in action sports?
We’re surfers, snowboarders, hikers, bikers, beach nappers and sunworshippers. We love tacos, and probably take too many surf breaks during work hours and we make our product the way we like them and for that reason we think you’ll like them too.
What materials are you using? Any innovations to talk about?
We really made it our mission to make product we feel good about using on our own friends and family. Products that feel good to use, that are better for you, the animals, and the environment. Our sun cream literally “smells like summer” and people are obsessed with that, and we also have a bunch of good-for-you product qualities consistent across our range that include UVA/UVB broad spectrum protection, vegan, gluten free, cruelty free, hypoallergenic, and water resistant (80 minutes).]
How do you address sustainability/eco friendliness in your products?
One of Sun Bum’s core values is Respect Your Mother (Earth) and we take the responsibility that we have to our community and to the planet very seriously. We design our products to be recyclable, but we still recommend checking with your local recycling unit to see what they will/won’t accept.
Any exciting marketing campaigns coming up for your product line?
Every May we launch our Skin Cancer Awareness campaign globally. We show up at planned events and activations around the world and provide sun protection and education to the local community. Launching in the UK in 2020 and navigating the pandemic made it hard for us to plan in person events and activations that are so core to our brand and community. This year look out for Sonny at your local beaches and shops. We have plans to show up this spring and summer at key events and retailer activations across the UK, Italy, Benelux and France.
What other benefits, apart from sun protection, does your product offer?
Protecting your skin from the sun should also feel good and nourishing, so our sunscreen formulas are developed to moisturize and enrich your skin with Vitamin E, an antioxidant that helps to neutralize free radicals, which are the main cause of premature skin aging.
Why should retailers stock your brand & your latest collection?
We live and breathe the Sun Bum lifestyle so we don’t need focus groups. We create products the way we like them and market them how we want to be marketed to. It’s an easy strategy to follow, and we trust it.
What POS are you helping retailers out with?
We’re really known for our custom wooden floor fixtures topped with our world-famous Sonny vinyl figure. It does such an awesome job of showcasing the vibe of who we are as a company.
