Let’s talk about sunscreen. We all know how important it is to protect our kiddos’ delicate skin from the blazing sun, especially in a beautiful place like Australia. But have you ever thought about how much waste traditional sunscreen packaging generates? That’s where Solmates Australia comes in with their awesome refillable sunscreen applicators!

If you’re anything like us, you probably have a few half-used sunscreen bottles lying around. It’s a common problem, isn’t it? We use a little bit of sunscreen, and then we forget about it, leaving the bottle to collect dust on the bathroom shelf. It’s not only a waste of money, but it’s also not great for the environment.

That’s why Solmates Australia was born. The founders of Solmates Australia had a simple desire for sustainable sun protection. They were tired of the endless plastic sunscreen bottles lying around their homes, cars, and bags. They tried buying sunscreen in bulk, but that just led to lugging around big bottles of sunscreen that weren’t exactly convenient. They knew there had to be a better way.

So, they created their own Solmate – a cute, refillable sunscreen applicator that is sustainably made and beautifully designed. It all started with a few sketches at the kitchen table, and after two years of design refinements, their little Solmate was born.

The Solmate is not only convenient and adorable, but it’s also great for the planet. By using a refillable sunscreen applicator, you’re not only reducing the number of plastic sunscreen bottles that end up in landfills, but you’re also using Australian-made sunscreen that is gentle on your skin and the environment. Plus, Solmates Australia sunscreen is reef-friendly, meaning it doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals that can damage coral reefs and marine life.

Solmates Australia is all about saving the planet and keeping your family safe at the same time. Their refillable sunscreen applicator is a lightweight bottle that sprays a fine mist of sunscreen. And the best part? You can use it over and over again! No more throwing away plastic sunscreen bottles every time you run out. Just grab a refill pouch of Solmates Australia sunscreen (made from recycled plastic, by the way), pour it into your bottle, and you’re good to go!

Never be caught without sunscreen again!

The team from Solmates get that small bottles are convenient and easy to take with you for the day, but also know that those small bottles get chucked away when the sunscreen runs out.

Your Solmate solves this dilemma – it’s small enough to throw in your bag but it’s also reusable over and over again. Less plastic waste, just as much convenience! Oh, and did we mention that the roll-on ball makes application a breeze!?

Holding 50ml of sunscreen it’s just the right size to protect you on your sunny adventures.
