The Backstory

When our creator and former teacher Holly Thaggard started Supergoop! in 2007, she wanted to show kids the importance of using SPF every day by putting it in classrooms everywhere. But since the FDA regulated it as an over-the-counter drug (meaning schools wouldn't allow it without a doctor's or parent's note), she had to move on to plan B, reaching kids and parents alike by launching Supergoop! in stores.

The sun exposure we experience every single day can result in skin cancer later in life. But as I reflected on my time in the classroom, I never once saw a tube of sunscreen anywhere.”

Fast forward to today, and 14 states now allow SPF without a note. And because we’ve grown up a lot over the past 10+ years, we're finally able to make it super easy for parents in all states to put SPF in their school...for free! And that makes us really happy.

We’re starting this initiative by focusing on Pre-K and Kindergarten classrooms, and we'd love for you to be a part of this first round of giving. All you have to do is email us at ouncebyounce@supergoop.com with the contact info of your teacher, school nurse or administrator, and we'll be in touch with their Supergoop! Ounce by Ounce® Starter Kit, which includes a 50-ounce pump of our Skin Soothing Mineral Sunscreen SPF 40. Just make sure you reach out right away, as we have a limited number ready to go!
