OUR GLITTER GOALS
Sunshine & Glitter started in 2018 with a mission of helping children develop a habit of wearing sunscreen by infusing joy and sparkle into their skincare regimen. We have since expanded to multiple lines of health and wellness products that provide effective skincare and incite joy. We are committed to using ingredients that are nourishing, naturally derived, vegan, cruelty-free, and reef-safe.
FROM HOBBY TO GLITTER EMPIRE
It all started when a friend of mine told me that she would add glitter to sunscreen to get her children to wear it. I instantly fell in love with the idea. At the time, no one was doing this. It was then I had an "Ah-Ha" moment. Since skin cancer is a huge problem and getting children to put sunscreen on is an even bigger one. I figured that if I get them to start wearing sunscreen early on, the habit will continue into adulthood. New to the skincare world, my inquisitive nature led me down a rabbit hole of an industry that uses ingredients that are toxic and extremely bad for the environment. I wanted to combine the joy and sparkle of glitter with good-for-you ingredients. Components that I would not only use on my skin but also put on my children's skin. They are nourishing with anti-oxidants, such as green tea extract and aloe while being eco-friendly and reef safe. What came about was a product that only uses the best ingredients with a transparent supply chain. We only use all-natural preservatives and make all of our products down to the tubes in the USA. By manufacturing all components in the United States, we can ensure our line has the safest production. Out of our little hobby, Sunshine & Glitter was born. We invented glitter sunscreen to make sure that our children could enjoy their time out in the sun and as a positive reinforcement to continue to put it on. Today, we are much more than just sunscreen. Our line of sunscreen, lotions, hair-care products, and lip balm are in over 2,000 locations. From some of the biggest names in retail, such as Nieman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue, to your local dermatologist Sunshine & Glitter is never more than a few clicks or short trip away.
WHY THE NAME SUNSHINE & GLITTER
I originally wanted to name the company Sunshine & Rainbows. I was complaining to a friend, a hardcore business woman CEO corporate ladder type, that a company Sunshine & Rainbows already existed. She was like, "well you don't sell rainbows, you shouldn't have that name anyway. You sell sunshine & glitter. That's your name now." I immediately looked up the domain, and company name, and everything was available.
We have meticulously and obsessively designed each product with the best ingredients and as a tool to encourage life-saving skincare regimens. From the ingredients to the little messages all over our packages, I hope our products spark joy and make life better! Join us on our journey to make the world a safer and sparklier place!
