Embracing Sun Protection: The Journey of BU Sunscreen and the SPF Evangelist

In the dynamic world of outdoor enthusiasts and sun protection, one name stands out: Jeff Kletter, fondly known as the SPF Evangelist. Back in 2003, Michael Hodgson and Marcus Woolf introduced this term at the Outdoor Retailer event. Fast forward to today, Jeff Kletter takes center stage once again, embodying the spirit of sun safety advocacy.

Spritz of Sunshield: Jeff Kletter's Energetic Sun Safety Campaign

"Nothing Says Open Air Demo to SNEWS crew..... Like a walk-by spritz of sunscreen from the SPF evangelist himself, Jeff Kletter. By 9:30 a.m., Kletter made the rounds of every exhibitor to ensure all were safely protected from the sun's energy. Retailers and others were already lining up, or being accosted as they passed by, for a quick Spritz and Go. Kletter and his team work as quickly as race-car mechanics- up one arm, down another around the legs and finish with the face, carefully protecting the eyes with a deftly placed hand. Other sunscreen companies trying to hawk their wares could learn a thing or two from Kletter's energy and passion."

BÜ Sunscreen: A Passion for Protection Beyond the Ordinary

The fervor for sun protection reaches new heights with BU Sunscreen. With a mission to enhance outdoor experiences through beloved products, BU takes pride in crafting sun protection that is both effective and enjoyable to wear. Jeff Kletter, the driving force behind BÜ, shares his vision, "We create sun protection products that are safe, effective, and people genuinely love to wear."

Transitioning from their earlier brand Kinesys, the move to Malibu in 2011 sparked the inspiration for BU. The essence of "the bu" (as Malibu is affectionately known) and the freedom it embodies resonated with the team. Jeff emphasizes, "In Malibu, you breathe a little slower, you can just be you! This place encourages authenticity."

A Symbolic Logo: B U – Be You

The logo holds a deeper meaning – B U or Be You, a sentiment that encapsulates BÜ's core values of individuality and self-expression. The umlaut over the Ü even resembles a "happy" face, embodying the essence of happiness that BÜ aims to spread.
