Sense, Sensibility and Responsibility

Dear you,
Let's start with some sense and sensibility today... with a dose of responsibility.

Beach

Our story began on a trip to the Polynesian islands, with unparalleled beauty, pristine waters and fauna and flora for the world. The beach and the ocean are parts of the environment which serve as our core inspiration for our scents. So while we encourage lovers of our scents to be responsible at the beach.

The Responsible Beach Checklist
    1. Do not litter at the beach and dispose of trash responsibly. Relatedly, volunteer for beach cleanups. 
    2. Keep animals from getting trapped or tangled in trash, on land and in the water.
    3. Be active! There is so much nature to play in.
    4. Keep the SPF handy.
