All available sunscreen active ingredients absorb through our skin, interfering with hormones and even exacerbating UV damage. Meanwhile, SPFs in cosmetics, washed down the drain at night, accumulate in sensitive marine environments, where even the “reef safe” versions threaten endangered corals and marine life.
Based on groundbreaking work in protein engineering at Princeton, Soliome has reinvented sunscreens and SPFs, an $18B global market. It is totally safe, long-lasting and goes on clear without white residue.
Why now: In October of 2022, new FDA regulations on sunscreens take effect, dramatically reducing the cost and burden of approval.
Why it’s scalable: Because Soliome can make their SPFs from any protein. Even common plant proteins already used as food.
