In 2010 we started making products to protect our friends and families from the sun. Since then we’ve grown and gotten a lot bigger but we haven’t changed.
Our Cocoa Beach office is an old Florida beach house off A1A. Our Moonlight Beach office is in the groovy little town of Encinitas California.
We play way too much ping pong during work hours. We listen to old albums. We take surf breaks. We bring our dogs and kids to work.
We want our lives to matter.
We make products the way we like them and we hope you like them too.
Trust The Bum®.
We care about the planet.
We care about the animals.
We care about our families.
So, of course we don’t use any ingredients that could hurt any of them.
Protect The Groms - Our Mission
Protect The Groms works with elementary schools across the United States to provide shade structures and sun safety education to kids who live and play in the sun. Each year PTG awards grants of up to $10,000 to public and charter elementary schools for installing permanent shade structures to cover the sunny areas of their campus.
In 2010, our family and friends started the sun care brand Sun Bum in order to protect ourselves and our small beach community from the harmful dangers of the sun. As our little company grew we started to realize that our products and logos were connecting with kids of all ages, and we wanted to do more. So, in 2016, we started a non-proﬁt called Protect The Groms.
In surf lingo “groms” means “kids”.
Did you know that often times the skin cancers you get as an adult are results from burns you got when you were a kid? Or that in most of the United States you cant bring sunscreen to school without a doctors note because it's classified as a "drug"?
