Established in 2016 by marine biologist team Tom Hiney and Sacha Guggenheimer, whilst working on the Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia. The pair began by developing a natural high quality sun protection that wasn’t going to compromise their skin with harsh chemicals or have adverse effects on marine life and coral reefs. They hand made the original SunButter sunblock for the whale shark guides, photographers, spearo's, divers and fisherman.
Tom and Sacha’s passion to grow a socially and environmentally ethical company was driven by their travel and work as naturalists, lecturers and wildlife guides on expedition ships. Their connection to remote cultures and wilderness continues to drive them everyday in creating a strong for purpose business. Engrained in all their actions is their mantra,
PROTECTING PEOPLE & OCEANS
So what about before SunButter was even a twinkle in the pairs eyes, before the pair had even met? Tom ditched his place at London's School of Economics to become a dive master and travel the world. He managed a conservation island in the Seychelles before becoming a naturalist guide, with a particular speciality in coral reef restoration. Sacha jumped from engineering to marine biology, whilst always carrying a special spot in her heart for living a natural, healthy, organic lifestyle. Growing up, Sacha's Swiss mother instilled in her the powerful benefits of natural-healing by treating ailments from colds, to cuts, to skin allergies with herbal remedies. The combined life experience of Tom and Sacha has made the perfect collaboration for product development of high quality natural sunscreen with a strong focus on giving back to the planet where it is most needed.
