palm & pine skincare
It all started with homemade batch of sunscreen.
We relocated to western Portugal and a new beach lifestyle meant two things - we needed good sunscreen and wanted to protect the ocean. We gave some natural sunscreens a try but didn't like what we found. Thick, white formulas, plastic packaging. It was a no from us.
So we got to work on creating the products that we couldn't find.
Imagined on a beach in Portugal and developed in Cyprus. Palm & Pine is of European origins with a mission to be loved worldwide.
You can read our full story here. Read on for why we're different.
THE NEW STANDARD
Standard sunscreens contain chemical UV filters and fragrances, packaged in plastic with pumps and sprays, producing plastic waste. Bad for our us, bad for our world.
It would be predictable if we told you how we're better than the rest, so it's easier if we show you.
zero plastic waste
For the other sunscreen companies being ocean-friendly is all about the product. It’s a claim that their product doesn’t contain any of the chemicals that have been linked to coral bleaching and damage to marine life.
For us, it means this and so much more.
What’s the number one threat to the ocean? Plastic. So our ocean friendly claim goes beyond the product. We include the packaging, too. Ocean friendly but sold in ‘green’ plastic? Nah, we’re not buying it.
true ocean friendly
Palm & Pine is ocean-friendly from product to packaging. No greenwashing and no harm to the ocean.
Zero-plastic packaging. Recycled, recyclable, and reusable.
Who are we for?
Who are we for? The sunshine lovers who adventure amongst the palms and the pines, summer and winter. The surfers, snowboarders, nomads, and travellers.
Protection wherever and whenever you play.
The dream became a reality after we successfully crowdfunded Palm & Pine. It started with an idea and a naked man in a field. The rest is history. Check out our crowdfunding video here.
