Meet the MOTHER SPF female Founders:
Tandia Walsh & Elle Peter
Elle Peter is a pale skinned, eczema suffering, marketing boss turned all-natural product loyalist and enthusiast, ready to make a change in the sunscreen game. She is a product integrity and customer service devotee, and knew that after Tandia shared her MOTHER SPF samples with her, she was sitting on something special that Elle wanted to help share with the world.
The idea for MOTHER SPF was born out of necessity when a few years back Tandias mother was diagnosed with Cancer leaving her to discover the hidden nasties lurking in a lot of the mainstream SPF products. After not being able to find a mineral SPF suitable for herself and a strong love for all things skin health and mother nature, she decided to look into making her own. A background in science, and partnering with expert formulators to develop MOTHER SPF to it’s highest performance and efficacy, Tandia found a lab that could make it for her, and bring MOTHER SPF to life.
