Let's Stop the Growth of Skin Cancer.
Our story began with personal setback. We were three healthy young men, who thought we were indestructible. But then, several of our friends – all healthy and in their thirties, like us – were hit by cancer. One of them was Jono, our co-founder.
Through this experience we learnt that skin cancer – one of the world’s most common cancers – is not only on the rise, but also that most people don’t think about the need for year-round skin protection. That’s especially true of men who are almost twice as likely as women to die of skin cancer.
Emboldened, we created LifeJacket, with the single vision of stopping the increase in skin cancer. If only more people knew the facts, the same tragedies that struck our friends could be avoided.
Taking better care isn’t just about preventing skin cancer though. We believe year-round protected skin is healthy skin and healthy skin makes you happier and more confident. That’s why we design products that give your skin what it needs – all year round – for long-term skin health.
Welcome to LifeJacket. We’ve #GotYourBack.
Men and women
Almost twice as many men die from skin cancer vs. women in Australasia, North America and much of Europe.
Male skin cancer cases have exploded over the past 20 years and they’re forecast to double over the next 20 years.
We have a vision to change that.
Why are men so at risk?
Skin cancer is one of the most treatable, preventable cancers. But often, men ignore abnormalities on their skin, leaving things too long.
Secondly, when it comes to prevention, most guys aren’t great at protecting themselves. Men told us that traditional brands didn’t address their needs: most products are too heavy, too greasy, get caught in hair, smell of coconuts and simply put, are too much hassle.
A complete solution.
We set to work with a team of industry experts. The objective was clear: engineer a range of high-performance and year-round skin protection products. It took more than three years of in-depth technical and scientific expertise to get there. But we didn’t want to rush it because we wanted a product that would work for you – that was head and shoulders above everything else.
All our products are clinically, dermatologically and laboratory tested and used by everyday folk (like us), professional athletes, Olympians and our epic team of brand ambassadors.
The result is LifeJacket. And we’re incredibly proud of the range.

“Unlike other protective products I’ve used in the past, both the Daily Protection Moisturiser and Sun Gel go on smoothly and don’t leave a greasy feel but provide the higher UV protection I’m looking for. A great set of products that I recommend to anyone.”
