Manda Organic Sun Paste
Manda was developed by professional surfer/adventurer/environmentalist Cyrus Sutton. Following a melanoma scare in his family, Cyrus became adamant about creating sun protection that stays on in the water. Cyrus and the team at Manda created Manda Organic Sun Paste that is made with that same powder from the thanaka tree. Thanaka has been used as a natural SPF for the Burmese people for over 2,000 years due to its sun-deflecting properties. This indigenous cosmetic is also high in antioxidants, cools the skin and tightens the pores. Manda has mixed thanaka with seven other natural ingredients, all of which are safe enough to eat and 70% organic. The result is a sun paste that is highly water resistant, sweat-proof and environmentally sound.
