HIGHLY EFFECTIVE SUN PROTECTION FOR SURFERS AND ATHLETES

We are a group of avid surfers and snowboarders. On our trips to the Australian coast and the Swiss Alps, we learned the hard way that most sunscreen products are not made for extreme conditions. We could not rely on them to protect our skin from damage and ageing. So we created SWOX – a sunscreen specifically designed to give surfers, snowboarders and outdoor athletes the protection they need.

The best ideas are born from passion.


This held true for Max, Tim Peltz and Ralph Kenke, when they started SWOX over eight years ago during a surf trip in Australia. They wanted a sunscreen that would protect their skin during long surf sessions, as well as environmentally friendly and safe for their health. SWOX soon grew into a premium sunscreen brand with quality lotions and highly protective zinc creams for ambitious athletes who spend a lot of time in the lineup or in the mountains.

The success of SWOX is driven by founder Max and a Munich based team, who continuously work to strengthen the brand’s market position and secure long-term growth. SWOX is currently focussing on exciting new shores in Brazil and the US.

Swiss sun protection expert Uli ensures that all ingredients, sun filters and formulas are at the cutting edge of cosmetics research and development. The biggest testament to the quality of our products is the community of world-class surfers who use SWOX. We take pride in our team of athletes, among which world-class surfer Jordy Smith counts himself. Jordy contributes his valuable experience as a pro surfer to the development of our sunscreen products.

EXTRA WATER-RESISTANT

Our sunscreens combine physical blockers like zinc and titanium with special water-resistant UVA and UVB filters to guarantee maximum and long-lasting protection for your skin, especially in water.

BIOBASED PACKAGING

SWOX tubes are made from 49 percent biobased plastics derived from Brazilian sugarcane ethanol. This process reduces the need for fossil fuels and fixes carbon dioxide, thereby lowering greenhouse gas emissions.

We are continually working to improve the sustainability of our products through close collaboration with companies driving innovations in renewable and sustainable materials and ingredients.

Some of the world’s best surfers, kitesurfers, windsurfers, runners and outdoor athletes choose SWOX for their daily training and competitive events.
