OUR STORY

Sundots are the world’s first gummy for sun protection.

We all know how harmful sun exposure is to our skin. The bad news? Sunscreen, while an essential part of every sun protection regimen, doesn’t provide the complete protection we need to stay healthy.

Sundots help fill the gaps when other products let us down. They’re the missing piece of our sun protection toolkit for skin health… and beauty. Sundots are based on the active ingredient polypodium leucotomos, a fern extract from Ecuador backed by 30+ years of research for sun protective properties, including blinded human clinical trials done at Harvard.

We raised over $125,000 in our launch campaign on Indiegogo in early 2018 (more than 500% our goal), fulfilled our first manufacturing run to early supporters over a month early, and will be in CVS in June 2018.
