Our Story

Stephanie DiPisa

I started this company to solve a need for my three children who have allergies to chemical sunscreens + my own Lyme’s Disease journey where I learned:

Ingredients + Transparency DO Matter.

In that process, I realized not all zinc SPF is clean. Read your labels.

After more than three years working with talented chemists, doctors, labs and global testing facilities, we're thrilled to give natural SPF a long overdue makeover! We clean up ingredient lists, removing questionable stuff in favor of more of the good stuff. Our products complement your skincare regimen with more pleasant (yes, they rub in and hydrate!), healthier + skin-loving formulas that drive skincare level results.

When reaching for mineral-only protection you shouldn't have to also opt-in for either sticky, whiteness OR questionable, skin disruptive ingredients. Solara helps solve that!

We’re Clean

We believe in sustainable, resposibly sourcing and 100% transparency from our labels to your skin. My nana always says, “darlin’ it’s what’s on the inside that counts.” She’s always right! So, we removed over 1,500 of the most disruptive, questionable or EU banned ingredients and added even more of the good ones at meaningful levels. Instead of long, tricky lists of never-ingredients, we choose full disclosure (down the to .004%!) on everything we DO use ...and we follow EU transparent labeling guidelines so there is no guesswork, hidden byproducts or “trade secrets”.

We’re Supercharged

To me, the best products provide multi-tasking results, so it was simple -- let’s formulate our SPF to actually be good for the skin and compliment our own clean skincare routine instead of disrupting it. We use efficacious levels of bioavailable + high-performing actives curated specifically to: help shield from sun, digital + environmental pollution AND help drive skin health + rejuvenation in the important hours after exposure.
