1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime.
But it's preventable. Our mission is to promote healthy skin, which is why we donate a percentage of proceeds to the Skin Cancer Prevention foundations. A cause that is close to our hearts, we support the prevention and prompt treatment of the world's most common cancer. Let's talk SPF.
Dandelion Sun is about an experience. Everything from the product to the packaging and fragrance are designed to evoke feelings of confidence, knowing your skin is being nourished and protected. Delivering on the promise of healthy, beautiful skin using clean and effective ingredients is what drives our two founders.
Stephanie Marks and Marlena Chang met while studying at the agricultural institution, University of California, Davis and discovered their shared passion while working together at a skincare company. Aware of the harmful effects of sun exposure -- from dry skin and premature wrinkles, to a close family member's bout with skin cancer -- they understood the importance of taking preventative measures.
90% of the signs of skin aging are caused by daily sun exposure.
Neither had found an SPF moisturizer that was non-greasy and absorbed quickly without leaving a white residue, but still provided maximum protection. So one summer day in Sonoma, while discussing in a field of dandelions, they resolved to create their own. They spoke with women like themselves, skincare brand founders and nearly every US lab to create this formulation.
