The idea of Sunscreenr was first born a few years ago after seeing a family member struggle with skin cancer. We came up with the idea of a simple device that would let anyone "see" if they had applied sunscreen properly, even after swimming, toweling off, playing outside all day, etc.
It took almost 2 years to build the right team who could turn the idea into reality. After several prototypes, we are now launching Sunscreenr to bring the idea to you.
Sunscreenr's creators are two savvy entrepreneurs with deep industry experience. Together, they bring over forty-years of management, design, and product development know-how to the new company. The team is focused on cultivating a strong culture focused on bringing innovative, light-based products to market. The creators work tirelessly to help the team scale, grow, and drive successful business results.
