The Beginning of Sea & Summit
Working as an ocean kayak guide and lifeguard off the coast of Santa Barbara, California, our founder Ryan Kell discovered a need. This need was for effective and safe sunscreen that didn't harm him or the marine sanctuaries he worked and played in. Spending eight-plus hours a day under the sun in addition to being a fair-skinned ginger, sent him searching for alternatives that proved to be a disappointment.
Determined To Create A Solution
Ryan turned to his kitchen and with determination created his first organic sunscreen. It soon became a hit with his fellow lifeguard and kayak guiding friends. As word spread and demand grew, there was only one thing left to do; start Sea & Summit Sunscreen.
As Sea & Summit has slowly grown over the years, our values have remained intact: To produce environmentally sustainable and sound sun care by utilizing responsible transparent business practices to inspire clean and conscious living.
Sea & Summit is Growing
Sea & Summit is right on track and our loyal following continues to grow. With that growth, natural progression and synchronicity create opportunity for good people to come together. This led us to Alex Howard. Alex shares the same love of the outdoors and the common goal of wanting to protect the planet and make a difference. Now Ryan and Alex are teaming up to spread the mission of Sea & Summit Sunscreen.
