The co-founder of the VitaSea suncare brand, Christine Burger, has deep roots in Hawaii and a love for the island’s beauty. She created VitaSea with a mission to provide sustainable sun protection for those who enjoy an outdoor lifestyle, while also prioritizing environmental initiatives.
On the VitaSea website, Burger shares her personal connection to Hawaii, where her family would visit every summer. To support the Maui Strong Fund, which is helping the community recover from the devastating fires, Burger and co-founder Matthew Burger are donating 100% of the online sales of VitaSea sun care products to the cause.
All VitaSea suncare products are formulated with Vitamin E, Vitamin C, and Sea Kelp to protect the skin from oxidative stress caused by free radicals and UV environmental aggressors. The products are plant-based, hypoallergenic, and dermatologist-tested for sensitive skin.
VitaSea offers two types of sunscreen products: mineral-based and clear coverage. The mineral-based sunscreen acts as a physical block between the sun and the skin and is ideal for those with sensitive skin or acne-prone. The clear sunscreen absorbs UVA and UVB rays and is suitable for everyday use and inland activities.
The premium VitaSea products include Ultra Sheer Mineral Sunscreen Stick SPF 30, Ultra Sheer Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30, Hydrating Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50, Sunshine Warrior Sunscreen Super Spray SPF 50, and After Sun Replenishing Cream, with prices ranging from $14 to $45.
