During a family trip to Nosara, Costa Rica, I discovered an amazing sunscreen used by all the surf instructors to keep them protected from the blazing sun while spending hours in the ocean. This zinc-based organic and natural sunscreen worked better than any store bought brand we had.
That summer I tried to find a similar product back home in Ontario, Canada - but nothing existed on the market. So, I decided to make it myself. I wanted to create a product that protected people from burns and sun damage while being active, that looked and felt great on your skin and wouldn't sting your eyes in the water or when sweating. I care deeply about health, both of the planet and of people, so I was focused on finding natural ingredients that would not harm either.
My desire to recreate and bring this protective sun solution to market might have something to do with the fact that I'm a soccer player, I love water sports, and I'm also prone to getting burnt by the sun's powerful rays!
After a lot of research, experimenting, product testing and honing, Muskoka Mud was born.
It is SPF 30, made with organic and natural materials, smells like chocolate (thanks to the cocoa butter and cocao powder), blends in with your skin and is highly protective in the water or just lazing around.
I hope you love it as much as I do!
