Our giving program that donates SPF to schools across America.
Talk about a class act…
When our creator and former teacher Holly Thaggard started Supergoop! in 2007, she wanted to show kids the importance of using SPF every day by putting it in classrooms everywhere. But since the FDA regulated it as an over-the-counter drug (meaning schools wouldn't allow it without a doctor's or parent's note), she had to move on to plan B, reaching kids and parents alike by launching Supergoop! in stores.
The sun exposure we experience every single day can result in skin cancer later in life. But as I reflected on my time in the classroom, I never once saw a tube of sunscreen anywhere.”

Fast forward to today, and 19 states now allow SPF without a note. And because we’ve grown up a lot over the past 10+ years, we're finally able to make it super easy to put a plan in place for parents and teachers to help put SPF in their school...for free! And that makes us really happy. Due to our overwhelming response from our pilot program, we're initially rolling out in Texas, New York, California, Florida and Illinois. However, please submit your school's info because we are excited to expand our program and will reach out when we are in your state!
