What We Believe

Only as much as you need.

In Hawai'i, we malama 'aina. We take care of the land and in return, the land takes care of us. Never a drop that goes to waste, Lani & Kai is committed to carry-on sized packs that you use all of. Eliminating 60% of non-recyclable plastics from our packs and our landfills, our sunscreen is made to be conveniently carried. No more lugging heavy, sticky containers. No more sunscreen graveyards of lost or forgotten bottles you keep rebuying in the back of a bathroom shelf. No more throwing away expensive tubes for TSA. 

All natural that feels natural.

At the end of the day, we can only make a difference if our sunscreen is on par or better than the best of what's already out there. Made with natural zinc and titanium dioxide and 98% organic ingredients, we've worked with the best to create the best: an all natural, safe sunscreen that’s on par with premium beauty counter products. Never greasy, thick, or white on skin, we're a mineral sunscreen that's better than the chemical brands.

Zero compromise sunscreen.

At Lani & Kai, we have a do no harm model where every bottle sold not only eliminates reef death, but also contributes to real reef regeneration with our partner laboratories. SPF 30 Broad Spectrum protection that keeps you cool, while preventing aging and burns, our sunscreen is made for you to be outside.


Our Story

Lani & Kai was founded by a fourth generation islander and a team of elite runners and surfers who spend their lives outdoors. At Lani & Kai, it is our mission to tread lightly on our planet. 

In Hawaiian, Lani is the heavens and Kai is the sea. Disheartened by buckets full of sunscreen tossed away at Honolulu's Daniel K. Inouye Airport, and inspired by the coral preservation work done by revolutionary coral activist, Dr. Ruth Gates, Lani & Kai was created to take care of the islands so they can take care of us.
