Some of the best items in the world sprout from necessity. I think this is might be one of them. At least twice a week you can find me and my friend Kristi Head, the founder of LITE+CYCLE (and frequent Base Layer contributor), hiking the trails of Griffith Park. While walking dusty trails for miles in the sun, we got to talking one day about wishing there was a portable, all-natural, non-toxic, balm for your face, lips, cheeks, neck, nose that you could drop in your pocket and reapply on the go. Months later, here it is! A natural, hydrating, soothing, protective sun stick that you can take on the go and use for skiing, boating, hiking, biking, beaching, and all your summer adventures. It's really quite lovely, it's light on your skin and packed with natural essential oils like avocado, coconut, and jojoba. There are no toxins, synthetics, fragrances, sulfates, or parabens—you can even use it on kids. My lips and nose have already thanked me.
