Discover feel-good, super-effective sun protection for all skin types from the American sun care experts

With another Hong Kong summer of long beach days and intense sunshine beckoning, finding a good sunscreen is essential—and as the 'Experts in SPF™', Supergoop!’s extensive range of clean and effective sun protection products have more than got you covered. In fact, wearing sunscreen is vital whatever the time of year, and here’s why.

A Brand With A Mission

Supergoop! was launched in 2005 by ‘Sunscreen Queen’ Holly Thaggard after her close friend was diagnosed with melanoma. Thaggard realised that skin cancer could be largely prevented in the simplest of ways—by wearing an effective sunscreen daily—and swiftly set about investing in the meticulous research and development required to create the very best suncare on the planet.

Supergoop!’s mission is to eradicate skin cancer by making sunscreen that people actually want to wear every single day of the year, with over 40 feelgood versatile formulas designed for every skin type and routine, all of which are broad-spectrum, protecting skin from both UVA and UVB rays.

Clean Without Compromise

Supergoop! is passionate about keeping all their products completely clean, reef-safe, and certified cruelty-free. They were the first brand to formulate sunscreen without potentially harmful chemicals like oxybenzone, parabens and synthetic fragrances; meanwhile, their stringent 'No List' contains over 1,600 ingredients that they have committed to never using in their products, and is constantly updated to reflect the latest health and safety research.

If an ingredient is even remotely controversial, Supergoop! takes the onus to leave it out of their formulas; the brand removed octinoxate, a chemical SPF linked to coral reef damage, from their products in 2019.

The Unseen Hero

If you’re not sure where to start, try Supergoop!’s number one bestseller: Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40 PA+++.

This sunscreen superstar is 100 per cent invisible, weightless, scentless and has a silky-smooth, easily absorbed, non-greasy texture that can be used by all skin tones and complexion types without clogging pores. Meanwhile, its makeup-gripping formula ensures it works equally well as a convenient daily primer used underneath your usual cosmetics or worn alone for a smooth velvety ‘no makeup’ look.

Alongside providing full protection from the sun’s UVA and UVB rays, Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40 also features tried-and-tested ingredients like red algae to help protect your skin from blue light. Other superpowered clean ingredients in its formula include frankincense to fortify skin and soothe irritation, and a meadowfoam seed complex to even out skin texture and enhance hydration levels.

So, now’s the time to take up a habit worth keeping and find the perfect Supergoop! sunscreen for you, ensuring that keeping your skin protected all year round is a breeze.
