In 2016 marine biologist and conservation ecologist team Sacha Guggenheimer and Tom Hiney were just learning about the negative impacts of chemical sunscreen pollution on our oceans and in particular coral reefs.

At the time, Tom and Sacha were working on the Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia. Feeling the squeeze between the need to wear sunscreen whilst swimming with whale sharks, and with the passion to protect the World Heritage Listed Ningaloo Reef, the pair began to develop a natural high-quality sun protection. A formula that possessed the highest sun protection factor possible for their outdoor lifestyle, SPF50, but was not going to compromise their skin with harsh chemicals or have adverse effects on marine life and corals.

This is how SunButter™ was born. The original SunButter sunblock was handmade for the whale shark guides, photographers, spearo’s, divers and fishermen of the Ningaloo Reef. Since August 2019 the company has expanded from handmade sunblock to Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration listed sunscreen, with their Sunbutter being SPF50, 4 hours water-resistant, reef-safe sunscreen.

The team behind Sunbutter is passionate to grow a socially and environmentally ethical skincare company and driven by the mantra: “Protecting People & Oceans”.

Net Weight: 100g of non-aqueous solution in an aluminium tin.

Non-aqueous means it’s not water-based. This means your tin lasts longer than water-based sunscreens, as well as locking in more of your skins natural moisture.

Tins are food grade safe, made from REUSABLE and recyclable material and BPA free.

    Thank you so much for such a great product.

    My child is allergic to most brands of sunscreen, there is nothing in the pharmacy or supermarket that we can use. We have been buying organic zink products for quite a while, and most of the products textures are oily and unpleasant and hard to use, messy and leaving stains on clothes. BUT THIS IS A GOD SEND.

    My child can take it to school and apply when needed himself, it is easy to apply and does not leave any oily residues or stains. The smell is great and my child now looks forward to sunscreen. Its one of the more superior products that we have tried to date.

    I will be definitely returning to this store to buy more.
