Not only are our mineral sunscreens ocean and reef friendly, but they are also strong enough for extreme surf conditions and natural enough for everyday use.
Not only are our mineral sunscreens ocean and reef friendly, but they are also strong enough for extreme surf conditions and natural enough for everyday use. And, our sunscreens meet the U.S. FDA 80-minute water resistance test to keep you protected.
The tropics isn’t just a beautiful place to surf. It’s the place our ingredients originate from, like natural essential oils and exfoliating rice husks. Our cleansers and scrubs safely and effectively remove sunscreen, chlorine, salt and sand.
After a day of having fun in the sun, our replenishing products leave your skin feeling moisturized and refreshed and ready for another day of doing what you love most.
The way we see it, the more you play in or on the water, the more you need a quality, long lasting sunscreen that’s not only skin friendly, but also ocean and reef friendly.
Tropicsurf is a complete suncare and skincare line that protects, cleanses and replenishes the skin. Created to work in the harsh sun of the tropics, it’s made from the most effective natural ingredients on earth. It will standup to marathon surf sessions in the hot sun, so you can do what you love most - enjoy the ocean and outdoors longer - while minimizing skin damage.
Much like surfing, creating the ultimate skin protection takes balance, understanding your environment and years of trial and error. We scoured the globe for ingredients, met botanists, chemists and naturalists. At the end of our quest, we’ve found and combined the most natural and effective ingredients on earth and used consciously designed recyclable packaging.
BUILT FOR YOUR EXTREMES
While the surf is pumping all day, so is the sun. The sun’s rays can be 60% stronger in the water than on the beach. Higher if you’re surfing near the equator. And when one in four sunscreens don't meet their own SPF claims*, the sunscreen you think you can trust might not be doing enough. Or, just as bad, might not be staying on long enough, which is vital to any oceanic or outdoor enthusiast.

OUR SKINCARE STORY
After 25 years of sharing the stoke of surf travel and empty line ups for hours at a time, Ross Phillips, our founder, knows a thing or two about the damage the sun can do to anyone who shares his passion for the ocean.
Recognizing a need for better skincare for surfers, Ross teamed up with fellow Aussie, surfer and global brand exec, Tony Palmer. Together they used the most effective, sustainable and reef friendly ingredients on earth to create a product surfers believe is better than anything you’ll find in any lineup.
