Sundaily gummies are the world’s first gummy for sun protection. 

We all know how harmful sun exposure is to our skin. The bad news? Sunscreen, while an essential part of every sun protection regimen, doesn’t provide the complete protection we need to stay healthy. 

Sundaily gummies help fill the gaps when other products let us down. They’re the missing piece of our sun protection toolkit for skin health… and beauty. Sundaily gummies are based on the active ingredient polypodium leucotomos, a fern extract from Ecuador with profound skin antioxidant properties. 

We raised over $125,000 in our launch campaign on Indiegogo in early 2018 (more than 500% our goal), fulfilled our first manufacturing run to early supporters over a month early, launched in CVS in July 2018, and are already working with some of the world’s most influential beauty and wellness influencers like WellnessMama, Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, and Shani Darden.
