Sun Protection Evangelist is at it again!

April 28, 2021

Dubbed in 2003 by Michael Hodgson and Marcus Woolf at the Outdoor Retailer, Jeff Kletter, the SPF Evangelist, is at it again.

"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 racecar 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 take the passion for sun protection to another level. With a desire to make a difference in peoples outdoor lives, by making products that people love to wear.

"We take pride in creating sun protection products that are safe, effective and that people love to wear. After selling our first brand in 2014, Kinesys, we didn't know what we wanted to do? We had moved to Malibu in 2011, raising three young children, who needed sun protection daily. After we sold the company, we started to think about the industry and the incredible potential to continue to help so many enjoy the outdoors without the fear of sunburns or worse."

It was the place, the name, "the bu" (which is what the locals and many who visit call Malibu) provided the inspiration. "There is a energy about this place that just lets you be you! When you get here you breathe, just a little slower. Malibu has such an eclectic mix of people, from celebrities to (unfortunately) homeless, but the common thread is, they are who they are! Be You!"

"When our 6 year old daughter looked at the logo and got it! the double entendre- B U or Be You (from the bu- boo), we knew this new logo would reflect our beliefs, to Be You! and the umlaut over the Ü looked like a happy face and makes me smile."
