New sunscreen launched to help the sea as well as your skin

From Afternoons, 1:35 pm on 22 September 2023

Finding a way to protect our skin without hurting the ocean and marine life became a passion for conservationist Natalie Jones, Nga Wairiki, Ngati Apa, who was appalled by the long list of unnecessary ingredients in conventional sunscreens.

Starting out in her kitchen, in Wellington back in 2019,  demand has quickly outgrown Natalie's ability to produce enough to meet demands for her sea friendly sun cream, so she's crowdfunding to expand the business.

Natalie shares her story with Jesse.
