The BurnOut Story

BurnOut advanced suncare products are developed by Environmental Scientist / Surfer Kevin Dunn, who, after 14 years of surfing and countless tubes of sunscreen, learned that truly functional sunscreens did not exist. Dunn, who has a family history of skin cancer, was disappointed with commercial sunblocks that left him burned and were less than effective in the ocean.

Upon graduating from the University of California at Santa Cruz with a degree in Environmental Science, Dunn moved to Hawaii where he began the research and development of BurnOut advanced sunblock during myriad athletic activities.

This took him to the ultimate testing grounds of Indonesia where he spent months rigorously Ocean Testing and perfecting the formula. Following much trial and error, BurnOut was born.
