"I used this amazing product in one of the most grueling ocean races in the world. The 41 mile Molokai Channel World Championship has you sweating but you’re also constantly bombarded with ocean swells that would strip the average sunscreen right off. I used one application and was protected for the entire race."

"As a natural and healthy oriented person, I only use zinc sunscreen, and Kokua Sunscreen is, by far, the best sunscreen I have tried. Smells like nature, feels smoother than any other zinc ones I ever used."
— Helena S. - Entrepeneur from Croatia Living in Texas
“This is the best zinc, natural, reef safe sunscreen I have ever used!! I love it! Kokua Sun Care sunscreen applies very smoothly and evenly. It doesn’t clump or cake-on like the other zinc sunscreens I used. I noticed that it absorbs well. My previous sunscreens would come off in the water even after 10-15 minutes of waiting after application which meant having to reapply frequently. I also love that my skin doesn’t feel dry afterwards. I appreciate the locally sourced and inspired ingredients and love that the ingredients are safe for children!! I have tried many different types of natural/zinc sunscreen as a surfer and beach goer and this sunscreen is the best! Try Kokua Sun Care and you will never go back!!”

I switched to mineral sunscreens when chemical sunscreens started giving me an allergic reaction. I tried Kokua because it is reef safe and reviews said it stays put in the water. If I'm in the sun, I'm in the water. Surfing, scuba diving, snorkeling, paddleboarding. I don't just need waterproof, I need something that holds up to the rubbing of fins, boards, etc. Kokua hasn't let me down yet! The fact that it is also reef safe is the cherry on top!
I LOVE that this sunscreen is reef safe AND doesn't make me pasty pale! As a bonus: it goes on easily and feels moisturizing. Heads up that it can also tint your light clothing, but it washes out easily with a little spritz of stain spray. This sunscreens is my new favorite product!
I’m a redhead from Alaska hang in Hawaii and this sunscreen is awesome! It doesn’t feel greasy and it works. 10/10 recommend and will buy again.
Love the tint and how smoothly it goes on.
I loved my star so much I bought my daughters each a star. Exfoliates without stripping. Cleans and refreshes
Everyone needs a little star
I love that this sunscreen glides on smoothly, is watery, but provides sun protection! It doesn't have a strong smell or anything and was something I've been looking for! It's great that this won't harm wildlife if I choose to wear it out in the ocean. Shipping was also quick and without hassle. I'm recommending this to all my friends!

I try to use mineral sunscreen but it’s typically too uncomfortable to use and leaves an odd white cast on me, even though I have fair skin. But this one is my favorite! The tint is not too dark for my fair skin tone and it does go on a tad bit tacky but it dries nice and looks natural on my skin. And a huge plus is that it’s non-nano and reef/human safe. This will now be my go-to sunscreen!
I first found Kokua Sun Care products with the natural ingredients and no chemicals and began using them about 3 years ago. I am thrilled with the results and will continue to recommend and use Kokua Sun Care products.
Good for reef and me!!!
This is now my daily product for a face sunscreen. Love that it’s mineral-based protection with a tint that does not leave a white cast, and doesn’t harm coral. It’s a bit thicker than what I’d like but I can live with that. Just a few dabs after your facial moisturizer and you’re good with broad spectrum protection.
I purchased Kokua Gift Pack as a Mele Kalikimaka gift after using and being impressed with the products myself. I was also pleased with the customer service; I emailed Robin asking that no pricing info be included with order and he responded back right away-what other company does one of the founders interact with customers. Great products, responsibly made, locally sourced and safe for people and planet. Mahalo

I purchased this before visiting the Caribbean Islands on a cruise. I have fair sensitive skin and this product worked great. It stays on eliminating the need to constantly be reapplying and it doesn’t look white like some other products I’ve tried. I love this product!
This went on nice without too much of a white cast. It did stain some of our white bathing suits/rash guards so be careful with that. It does mostly wash out with some effort.
