The Palm & Pine Story

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.

what's different?

ocean friendly sunscreen

For the other sunscreen companies being ocean-friendly is about what's inside the product. It means the 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.

The beginning

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.
