Why are SunSense sunscreens so popular in Australia?

SunSense was developed in 1988 and our products are still made in Australia with Australian conditions in mind.

Our products are formulated to the Australian Standard, which is considered to be one of the most stringent in the world and we offer the highest SPF available in Australia.

Our first priority is to provide the highest SPF protection and to ensure that it is broad spectrum so it protects from both UVA & UVB. We also know that people will be less inclined to wear sunscreen if it’s not cosmetically acceptable (for example if it feels heavy on the skin or doesn’t absorb) so our team have put in a lot of time and effort to ensure we are using quality ingredients and the most up to date science so that our sunscreens feel beautiful on the skin and are enjoyable to use.

SunSense was the world’s first cosmetically acceptable sunscreen offering broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection, using physical protection blockers and UV absorbers. It was also the first sunscreen to bring SPF 50+ to the Australian market in 2012 when the legislation was changed in Australia. We spent many years formulating the range ahead of the change so there was minimal difference in the feel between SPF 50+ and our SPF 30+ products.

One reason our products are so well loved is the vast range of formulations we have to cover lots of different skin types (ranging from SunSense Kids SPF50+ for young, delicate skin to SunSense Sensitive SPF50+ for people with skin conditions).

Our SunSense Face range is also very popular; they were the first range of sunscreen products specifically for the face. The products are very light with an SPF 50+ making them perfect for daily use and helping to prevent premature skin ageing.

Today, we remain committed to the science in SunSense and to our heritage and providing our customers with the highest quality sunscreen. We take our customer feedback very seriously, listening closely to ensure we are meeting their needs first and foremost – not just in Australia, but worldwide.
