I’ve always had an easier time than most with the sun. Maybe it’s my olive skin, maybe it’s that I can wear long sleeves in high heat. I also believe in hats and shade. Some would argue that my motorcycle gear and helmet is my favourite protection. So, I wasn’t sure our Sun Sense broad-spectrum sunscreen was going to be a big addition to the products I am passionate about.
Then, to make matters worse, came this years reluctant Vancouver summer, but there was this family wedding in Toronto. And Kate (my wife and Co-Founder of Saje) decided to invite 16 nieces and nephews to the beach. I organized a soccer game and then it was time to take my shirt off and put sun protection on. What a relief it was to be free of the petrochemicals and fake coconut smells. In fact, the great Lavender smell made the application a joy.
