We wanted a
clean sunscreen
for our face,
body, and planet.

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. 

Lani & Kai was created to take care of the islands so they can take care of us.

80 % of Sunscreens
Use Chemical Ingredients
to block UVA & UVB rays.

We set out to create a healthy chemical free sunscreen
We decided to create A
Mineral SPF that people actually want to wear.

Zinc mineral sunscreen has been available for years, but out of reach for most people, due to price and the thick and unpleasant formula.

We set out to create an affordable zinc option that goes on transparent and dries silky smooth.

Only as much as you need

Mindful and functional packaging.

In Hawai'i, we malama i ke kai.
We take care of the ocean & in return, the ocean takes care of us.

We set out to create a package where 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.

More about Packaging
Supporting Hawai'i is at our very core.

Our goal is not only provide clean mineral sunscreens to save our precious reefs in Hawai'i, but to also provide jobs and new opportunities on the island.

We are an important voice in reef protection and the chemical sunscreen ban.
