When was the first time you realized that you need to wear SPF not just during the summer, but every damn day of the year?

For elementary school teacher Holly Thaggard, it was a lightbulb moment that occurred after a close friend was struck with skin cancer in 2005, and the start of an entrepreneurial career that would lead to her lifelong dedication to suncare advocacy in schools – and the birth of Supergoop!, now a staple in many a glowy girl’s skincare routine.

In today’s episode, you’ll find out how the industry’s biggest sunscreen darling changed the game completely, introducing the idea of a “sunscreen wardrobe” that now offers over 40 different ways to apply every single day (PS - three units of Supergoop!’s iconic Unseen Sunscreen now sell every single minute).

You’ll hear why turning down Sephora was the key to becoming one of their best-sellers. Plus, Holly gives us an easy-to-understand explainer on everything you want to know about sunscreen now.
