In honor of May, which is the beginning of Melanoma Awareness Month, our founder and CEO, Holly Thaggard, shares a message about why our mission stands stronger than ever right now.
Now more than ever, I believe it’s important to focus on the things that matter most: the simple daily rituals that help us care for ourselves and our families. The things that keep us healthy, make us smile, and help us still feel like ourselves. For me, that’s meant reconnecting with the mission that led me to create Supergoop! 14 years ago.
Today marks the start of Melanoma Awareness Month. This year, during these unusual times, I’m finding myself reflecting on the ups and downs of my journey, and remembering that, during those tougher moments, it’s always the purpose that gets me through. I started this brand not as a product, but as a movement, with the goal that everyone, everywhere, every day, would learn the importance of keeping their skin safe through SPF, and ultimately stop the epidemic of skin cancer.
It’s not so easy to change the world – there were many challenging times along the way when it would have made sense to stop. But I didn’t, and I’m certainly not stopping now. I think we’re all realizing that no matter what the sun still shines (thank goodness!) and we appreciate it in a whole new way. And so at the same time our mission still stands strong…which always has been, and always will be, to wear sunscreen.
