Roxy Davis, Founder of Ocean Freedom, and a nine-time South African surfing Champion surfer explains, “What distinguishes Ocean Freedom from other similar brands is that it’s a purpose-developed range of mineral sunscreens for everyday use for families that love to live outdoors. Our ultimate test is that we use it, our children use it, and our family and friends use it.”

“Our brand is built on being purpose-driven and a portion of our sales support the Roxy Davis Foundation Surf Therapy Programme, an NPO teaching South Africans with a physical, intellectual, cognitive, or sensory disability how to surf,” added Davis.

Ocean Freedom sunscreens provide broad spectrum UVA and UVB sun protection (against aging and burning) by using non-nano mineral UV blockers and some enriched with aloe vera making it great for outdoor use on land and in water for all sporting activities. Ocean Freedom mineral sunscreens are fragrance-free, oil-free, non-irritant, reef-safe, sulphate-free, paraben free, and suitable for all ages and skin types.

All Ocean Freedom mineral sunscreens are Sun Protection Factor (SPF) validated by SANS 1557, to the European Colipa Standard, and proudly made in South Africa.

Kudzai Nyaruve, CANSA’s Seal of Recognition Coordinator states “We’re excited to welcome Ocean Freedom to our range of approved sunscreens in the Protection category. We can see they enjoy what they do and live what they do. Like CANSA, they aim to get people to lead a balanced lifestyle by being protected when in the sun, while they are active and spending more time outdoors and in nature.”

CANSA aims to promote a smart, balanced lifestyle using the CANSA Smart Choice Seal on products as a tool to assist the public in identifying products that may help lower the cancer risk and make healthier, informed choices. The CANSA Smart Choice trademark is only awarded to products that have undergone testing at an independent laboratory and which comply with the National Standards (SANS) or similar International Standards (ISO), as well as the stringent evidence-based requirements for each category as set out by CANSA.

The Ocean Freedom range of mineral sunscreen includes an SPF 50+ Surf & Sport Mineral Sunscreen (water-resistant, reef safe, non-greasy, for face and body); SPF 50+ Kids Sport & Swim Mineral (for active kids, water-resistant, reef safe, non-greasy); SPF 30+ Everyday Mineral Sunscreen (family use, water-resistant, reef safe, non-greasy) and SPF30+ Daily Nourishing UV defence Mineral Sunscreen (dermatologist approved, high in antioxidant, Ectoin for anti-aging, protects and moisturises).
