This year’s Skyrocket Brand Prize was a close call. Each company had something unique and useful they wanted to bring to the world to make our lives better. Whether it is a platform for growing your own food, eradicating homelessness, protecting yourself from skin cancer, promoting active lifestyle or choosing the right education. But Waterloo-based startup Suncayr beat out the competition with their passion for social impact.
IT’S AT START Pitch Competition 2015, 3rd place winners developed a marker with which you can draw or just make a mark on your skin before applying sunscreen. The mark will change in colour once the sunscreen is no longer effective.
Unlike its alternatives, Suncayr marker works accurately with any skin types, perspiration levels, and amount of sunscreen applied. It’s a product that has the potential to change the way we think about sunscreen, ultimately resulting in lower number of health problems caused by excessive sun exposure.
