30% of the global and local production of papayas is wasted, which aside from being an unfortunate reality, generates harmful emissions for the ozone.

Sunspectra's reef-safe mineral suncreens honor the circular economy. We reduce food waste by re-purposing it & transforming it into new value. The natural extracts we get from these papayas become the base for our sunscreens! 


Additionally, our packages are either reusable or compostable.


Our sunscreens are mineral so they watch out for your skin care while also not damaging marine life.


In a year of fostering the Sunspectra Tribe, we avoided 2,342kg of GHG emissions by repurposing 430kg of papaya waste into our formulas! Also, we avoided the use of +7,500 plastic packages. And that's just the beginning, with your support we're excited about the potential for positive impact we can generate together.  


We work with small local farms to source our papayas thus, aiming to provide these  farmers extra income by buying their, otherwise, "waste" produce.

Also, we want to be an educational voice for consumers, highlighting the importance of solar protection, considering harmful skin conditions have become so prevalent with our ever warming planet. 


We seek to inspire consciousness and a life lived in balance & respect with nature!

In a year of fostering the Sunspectra Tribe we managed to support small local papaya producers with more than $500 of extra income.
