Solar Buddies

Founders: Kelli Aspland and Laura Waters


Solar Buddies is the first invention from mums and best friends Kelli Aspland and Laura Waters.

Kelli and Laura first had their idea for the child-friendly sunscreen applicator back in 2011 whilst discussing issues they were both encountering, along with other fellow parents, about how they children could apply sunscreen safely and effectively whilst not in their care.  They both found out that their children’s school had a ‘No Touch Policies’ in place when it comes to applying sunscreen, which meant the teachers were unable to assist the children in this task. They realised very quickly that this was something they wanted to change and they wanted to make a difference for their children and others.
