Natural Sunscreen is a necessity for a safe summer season. Whether you are planning a family vacation or simply need to protect yourself from the hot summer sun, Manda has created a alternative to traditional sunscreen called Manda Organic Sun Paste, made with thanaka powder.
Manda was released earlier this year by professional surfer/adventurer/environmentalist Cyrus Sutton. Following a melanoma scare in his family, Cyrus became adamant about creating sun protection that stays on in the water. Through overseas surf travel, Cyrus was introduced to a yellowish powder that the native Burmese people were using on their faces – thanaka. After years of research and development, Cyrus and the team at Manda are proud to bring to market this new organic sun paste made with that same powder from the thanaka tree.
Thanaka has been used as a natural SPF for the Burmese people for over 2,000 years due to its sun-deflecting properties. This indigenous cosmetic is also high in antioxidants, cools the skin and tightens the pores. Manda has mixed thanaka with seven other natural ingredients, all of which are safe enough to eat and 70% organic. The result is a sun paste that is highly water resistant, sweat-proof and environmentally sound.
Manda Organic Sun Paste is available in two sizes:
Small (.52oz) $18.00
Large (1.76oz) $28.00
Manda’s natural ingredients, SPF 50 rating, smart packaging and responsible ethos make it a top pick for natural sun protection. Please be safe and always wear sun paste in the outdoors!
