Brush On Block's Story

As she wrestled sunscreen on to her two young daughters multiple times a day, every day, Brush On Block® CEO and founder Andrea Wetsel thought there had to be an easier, better way to apply and wear sunscreen. In 2011, mutual friends introduced Andrea to professional makeup artist Susan Posnick, who not only had her own line of high-end cosmetics, but was also a skin cancer survivor. The two women collaborated to develop Brush On Block SPF 30 Mineral Powder Sunscreen. For Andrea, it isn't just about preventing sunburn. "When you realize that one in every three cancers diagnosed is skin cancer, you become pretty passionate about sun protection. One person dies of melanoma every hour, yet it is the most preventable form of cancer when proper precautions are taken. Brush On Block makes protecting your skin easy."
