About this project
We live in a culture obsessed with chemicals. We are taught that complex formulas with synthetic ingredients are the most advanced solutions to our problems. At MANDA, experience has shown us the opposite.
By examining local traditions and applying them to modern day necessities, we are developing premium natural solutions to promote longevity in life and our environment, thereby allowing us to do what we love for longer.
Comprised of eight, all natural, organic ingredients, this highly-waterproof/sweatproof mineral Sun Paste is uniquely formulated to perform in extreme conditions. Simply put, it is exceptionally effective and so safe that you could eat it.
MANDA Organic Sun Paste is the ideal sun care solution for active people in the world's harshest conditions. Our Sun Paste is formulated for outdoor lovers by surfers, climbers, hikers and athletes. Our goal was to create a premium product designed to stay on longer and protect us through wind, water and sweat.
But we didn't stop there.
Once we achieved our ideal formula, we looked for ways to maintain and improve our product while making it even better for our skin and the planet.
MANDA is proud to be the first sun care product to introduce the use of the timeless curative: Thanaka.
This powder, ground tree bark from Myanmar, is a distinctive feature of Burmese culture and is the inspirational ingredient behind MANDA Organic Sun Paste.
For more than 2,000 years, Thanaka has been used for wide array of skin applications.
There are two types of sunscreen: physical and chemical. Chemical sunscreens absorb into your skin causing it to act as a filter in processing the sun's UVA and UVB rays. This generates free radicals which cause skin damage, irritation, aging and ultimately skin cancer.
Physical sunscreens deflect or block the sun's rays. With zinc functioning as a shield, blocking out UV rays, MANDA Organic Sun Paste simultaneously fostering your skin’s optimum wellness.
Our skin is the largest organ in our bodies. Do you want your skin to filter the sun's powerful rays or do you want to block it out completely? We'd prefer not to make our bodies work harder than they have to.
With no harmful chemicals or ingredients, MANDA Organic Sun Paste is non-toxic, reef safe and kid safe.
MANDA Organic Sun Paste utilizes only high quality, all natural ingredients to nurture your skin. We use only food safe ingredients, all that you are more than familiar with.
Exceptionally waterproof/sweatproof and made to last, our unique formula stays on your skin keeping you outside, doing what you love for longer. MANDA Organic Sun Paste also has a tint which acts as a visual indicator letting you know exactly where you are protected.
Coral reefs are among the most biologically diverse ecosystems in the world. One million species of fish, invertebrates, and algae are estimated to live in and around the world’s reefs. Reefs provide beautiful, natural playgrounds for all ocean goers, especially surfers and divers.
Chemical ingredients commonly found in our competitor's sunscreens, such as Oxybenzone, are disrupting coral's ability to protect itself. They awaken coral viruses causing the expulsion of their life-giving algae. Without these algae, the coral “bleaches” (turns white), and prematurely dies.
Another common effect of sunscreens, that many fail to realize, is the environmental impact of mining for their mineral ingredients. Mining for minerals, such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, cause erosion, formation of sinkholes, loss of biodiversity, and chemical contamination of soil, groundwater and surface water.
By choosing nature’s best solution for sun protection, Thanaka, we have further offset our footprint on the environment by reducing the amount of zinc used in MANDA Organic Sun Paste.
It's simple. Pay more, get less with everyone else...
With our 50g tub, you get up to 5x's more than any of the competition. And with our 15g tub, you still get more than any of the competition.
