Cult Favorite brand Supergoop! launched its must-have sunscreen

Founded in 2007, Supergoop! was entrepreneur Holly Thaggard’s multimillion-dollar idea that changed the way the world viewed and used sun protection. Formulated with all the elements that made a tube of sunscreen the best it could be, Supergoop! was packaged and sold in such a way that reeled in a different market, tipping the scales in the brand’s favor. It still enjoys its reputation as the world’s most famous sunscreen, protecting the skin while keeping oil and shine at bay, minus the presence of the dreaded white cast. The newest addition to the family is the Unseen Stick, which can be worn on top of make-up. Supergoop! is available at SkinSmart, Rustan’s Makati and Cebu, Lazada, and Shopee. —MJ Jose
