Our Florida office is an old beach house off A1A. Our California office is an old brake shop on Pacific Coast Hwy. Our refrigerator is full of coconut water and alcohol. We play way too much ping pong during work hours. We listen to old albums. We take surf breaks. We bring our dogs and kids to work. We make products the way we like them. We want our company to make a difference. We want our lives to matter.

Us

Trust The Bum

We're a small company in Cocoa Beach, Florida that started making products for our friends and family. We don't use focus groups, make decisions in a boardroom, hide ingredients or make bogus claims. We're just a group of friends who know what works and what doesn't and we're happy to share it with you.

Sun Care Facts

UVA & UVB Rays

UVA & UVB Rays

UVA rays penetrate the skin more deeply than UVB rays and are primarily responsible for premature skin aging and wrinkling. UVA rays have also been shown to cause more skin damage at the cellular level. UVB rays damage the outer layers of the skin. They are the main cause of sunburn and play a key role in the development of skin cancer.

Without protection, UVA and UVB rays
penetrate and damage your skin.

A broad spectrum sunscreen protects
your skin from both UVA and UVB rays.

SPF Ratings

SPF Ratings

Below is the approximate percentage of UVB rays blocked depending on SPF rating. The difference seems minimal, but a higher SPF helps if you are fair skinned or have a history of skin cancer. Remember, no sunscreen blocks 100% of UV rays.

SPF ratings are significantly decreased if you don’t apply enough. Most people only apply 1/3 of the sunscreen they need. Make sure you use enough and don’t neglect hard to reach and easily forgotten places like your ears, feet, and upper back.

Don’t Forget, The Sun Is Good

20 minutes of daily sunlight (without sunscreen) gives you a healthy does of Vitamin D, which is essential for good health.

Reminders

Reminders

A few things that we sometimes forget when we’re out in the sun.

  • Apply sunscreen at least 30 minutes before going out in the sun to allow for maximum absorption and protection.
  • Reapply sunscreen every 2 hours. Apply more frequently after swimming, sweating, or toweling.
  • To protect against UVA and UVB rays be sure to us a broad spectrum sunscreen.
  • Use an SPF of 15 or higher to help reduce 
the risk of skin cancer, and don’t neglect sensitive areas such as your ears, nose, shoulders, chest, and neck.
  • If you’re taking a swim or sweating, 
use a water resistant sunscreen to 
keep you safe longer.
  • Even on cloudy days, 90% of UV rays 
can still get through and leave you fried.
  • Reflection off snow and water can 
increase sun exposure by up to 50%.
  • UV levels increase 4% for every 
300m in altitude.
  • We know it’s tough, but try to limit your time in the sun from 10am to 2pm during the hot summer months.
  • Whenever possible, cover up with clothing - including a broad-brimmed hat and UV blocking sunglasses. Shade can reduce UV exposure by 50% or more.
  • Keep newborns out of the sun. Sunscreen should only be used on children over the age of 6 months.
