Does more exposure to the sun mean you need a higher SPF? And how much sunscreen should you be wearing?

Why We Re-branded. Providing a Tropical Escape to Everyone

When I first started Tropic Labs in the fall of 2017, I had no idea where this entrepreneurship journey would take me. Freshly graduated from my Cosmetic Chemistry program, I knew I wanted to create my own brand and run my own business, but I naively underestimated what it would take to bring that vision to life. Fast forward nearly 4 years - we’re officially releasing the new and improved version of Tropic Labs for the world to see.

Product Spotlight High Tide In-Shower Moisturizer: Why You Need a Wet Skin Body Lotion

Product Spotlight High Tide In-Shower Moisturizer: Why You Need a Wet Skin Body Lotion

Taking a shower is pretty much a part of daily life, right? Sure, but depending on the amount of time we allow to ourselves, our showers can look very different. We at Tropic Labs will be the first to admit that sometimes, we take quick 5-minute showers to rinse off the smell of our own BO because, frankly, we just can’t take it anymore! (Gross, I know, but we’ve all been there before. Where you just have a million priorities and self-care isn’t one of them.) Other times, we do THE MOST in the shower complete with a full-body shave, hair mask, and live karaoke session, resulting in us stepping out over an hour later, feeling like a whole new person! Both types of showers are equally crucial to our human experience. Still, we thought it was time to marry the two occasions and create a product that is just as opulent as it is fast-acting. Hide Tide In-Shower Moisturizer is for the person who splurges on guac, despite it being extra, but also uses an ungodly amount of dry shampoo on days she (or he) can’t be bothered to wash her (or his) hair.
