Why Hampton Sun?

What sets Hampton Sun apart from the rest?

Each Hampton Sun formula is meticulously crafted with potent skin-nourishing ingredients. From the low molecular weight form of hyaluronic acid used in our SPF 45 Wrinkle Control Face Cream to the multiple sources of vitamin c in our Age-Defying SPF 50 Mineral Face Creme, you can be sure your skin is being nourished on a deep-level, not only upon application, but long afterwards with continued use.

Each Hampton Sun product provides its user with a totally unique, luxurious experience. During our product creation phases, we strive to make it so each facet of the product speaks to our standard of luxury...

The texture, the scent, the way it makes the skin feel during and after application, the way it makes the skin look, how evenly and seamlessly it applies and absorbs, the look of the bottle and packaging.

Simply put, everything must align with our standard of luxury. We like to think of Hampton Sun as far more than just a sun & skin care brand; each Hampton Sun product is a uniquely luxurious experience in itself.

Our UV-advanced sunscreen products provide the most effective broad-spectrum protection from the sun's harmful rays (this does not speak to our sunbathing-specific products, which naturally offer lower levels of UV protection). Upon setting out to start Hampton Sun, we searched high and low for the most specialized labs in the USA to bring our vision to life.

Our chemists are highly skilled professionals deeply enmeshed in the sun and skin care industry, each with years of experience. They work closely with the FDA to ensure that Hampton Sun products are of the highest quality while also keeping up with the latest technology in sun care.

Natural, chemical filter-free mineral sunscreen. High SPF UV-Advanced sunscreen with enhanced water and sweat resistance. A top tier moisturizer + face SPF hybrid. An award-winning sunless tanning mist. SPF 4 + SPF 8 walnut-infused sunbathing essentials.
Dry oil sunscreens that leave your skin with a distinct velvet-matte feel. Water-based, antioxidant-rich after sun mists and gels. Mists, cremes, lotions, gels, oils, sticks, balms. The list goes on. Hampton Sun is so much more than just sunscreen. Our aim is to offer a uniquely luxurious option for every type of sun-goer.
Our signature fragrance inspired by summer in the Hamptons. Crisp, clean green notes are perfectly juxtaposed by airy, uplifting white floral layers. Think white hyacinth, lily of the valley, and privet blossom accented by sea spray, dune grass, and blue plum.
It's far from your typical beachy-coconut sunscreen smell. In fact, it's a scent you would never expect a sunscreen to have. Our Privet Bloom scent was named one of the "Ten Best Fragrances of All Time" by W Magazine and graces several Hampton Sun formulas.
We are constantly looking for ways to fold new technology into our product creation processes. Here are a few of the ways in which we take our products to the next level using state-of-the-art technology:

1. ADVANCED WATER + SWEAT RESISTANCE

The majority of our sunscreens offer advanced water + sweat resistance technology. In this regard, 80 minutes is categorized as "advanced". In contrast, 40 minutes is what is more commonly offered within the sun care industry. This generally means you can go for longer without reapplying and still be protected (your activity level and other factors of course come into play here).

 

2. VANISHING ZINC

Our Mineral sunscreens have been touted as "the most luxurious mineral sunscreens ever made." Apart from their gloriously velvety-smooth texture and potent skin-focused ingredients, our mineral sunscreens rub into the skin with unbeatable ease, leaving behind zero white residue. This is in stark contrast to what is usually offered within the mineral sunscreen realm - unpleasant formulas that feel heavy and leave behind a definite white cast.

 

3. SOLSTICE TECHNOLOGY

Solstice technology is at the forefront of our mineral sunscreen mists. Solstice works particularly well with mineral formulas, helping to offset the heavy, uneven, white-cast-inducing qualities of Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide. Solstice technology helps achieve an end product that spreads effortlessly, has a lightweight, silky-smooth texture, dries quickly, dispenses evenly, and leaves behind no white cast. 

 

4. BAG-ON-VALVE PACKAGING

Our Continuous Mist formulas use Bag-On-Valve technology. Here are the main highlights of B.O.V. packaging:

  • Product is kept separate from propellant in a four-layer bag, ensuring the product remains completely pure
  • This separation means that what is sprayed onto the skin and into the air/environment is pure product alone, not propellant
  • B.O.V. packaging is 100% recyclable and non-flammable
  • Ensures up to 99.5% of the product is dispensed
  • 360 actuation, works at any angle
  • Controlled + seamless spray pattern
  • Hygienic + sterilizable
  • B.O.V. is the #1 most environmentally-friendly spray packaging option available today

We are committed to providing the highest quality in sun (and skin) care while closely following current FDA guidelines (which is crucial, especially when it comes to sunscreen). Our testing processes are involved and extensive; we spare no costs to deliver the very best in sun & skin care. Testing is expensive, and believe it or not, not every suncare company places the same emphasis on it.

We are proud to offer sunscreen options that do not contain Oxybenzone or Octinoxate, two of the most cited concerns regarding sunscreen chemicals' potential harm to coral reefs. We deeply understand that the narrative around sunscreen and reef/environmental safety is ever-evolving, and are committed to remaining up-to-date with the most current findings.

Our customers and their satisfaction is of utmost importance to us. This is something that we have stood by since the very first days of Hampton Sun, and is something that will never waver.
