By 2010, we'd had enough of sunscreens that are suspected of causing more harm than good.
Our search for a sun protection solution that was effective, natural, sustainable and would feel good on your skin proved fruitless. Unable to find a product that met our standards, we investigated the traditional ingredients used in natural medicinals and ethno-pharmacology. This, combined with a bit of green chemistry, led us to create Avasol®.
The name says it all. "Ava", from the Samoan word for respect and "Sol" for the Sun that shines life on our planet. Respect the Sun.
We don't just stop there. We respect our customers as smart, sustainability-minded, health-conscious individuals. We respect our planet, by offering biodegradable and refillable packaging to lessen the burden of waste on our mother Earth. And we respect people, by seeking Fair Trade ingredients and only the finest natural, organic products.
Whether you prefer a solid stick or a lotion, we have the sun protection you want with the high quality, natural ingredients you deserve. We developed both formulas using the finest raw ingredients on the planet. Natural oils, waxes and minerals in their optimum form synergistically provide amazing results.
We closely monitor every part of the process, from growing to gathering, producing, packaging and distribution. As you hold our products in your hand, you will get the vibe. You will notice that the packaging for the stick is biodegradable. The cream dispenser is refillable. Both are an industry first.
If we were just in it for the money, we could have just stuck some white goop in a plastic bottle and called it organic.
But we're not, so we didn't.
Clearly, responsible corporate behavior could solve most of today's social and environmental problems. At Avasol, we strive to be the leader in developing a new, conscientious corporate model.
We feel that getting past confusing terminology and hype allows us to focus on what really matters, and that has let us bring together the whole package: sustainable skin care for active, health-conscious people.
