In 1988, Ego Pharmaceuticals demonstrated innovation within the market by developing the world’s first cosmetically acceptable sunscreen, which offered broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection by using physical protection blockers and UV absorbers.

With over 30 years of research and development, we can ensure that our sunscreens are made for real Australian conditions and real Australian lifestyles. SunSense has been developed to suit individual needs, provide the highest SPF available in Australia  and offer both UVA and UVB protection.
