About Us

Founder and Director

Amy Found

Sunscreen founder Amy Found

 Having fulfilled several professional   aspirations, I am finally where I was always   destined to be. I have danced professionally   around the world, lived and worked away   with Emirates Airlines, taught at primary and   secondary schools across Australia and   actively built a successful allied health   business from the ground up.

 Always being a sun lover and admittedly   getting burnt to a crisp more often than I   care to remember, my favourite memories   are of boating and Rottnest and long beach   days...

 So, what is my why? Long summers, tan   lines, burnt skin, ageing faces, melanoma coming way too close to home, my inspiring parents, our dying oceans ecosystems, reducing single use plastics and the next generation. The name ‘Found My Skin’ is a nod to the history of product development and mentorship in my dad but also a metaphor for loving the skin you are in.

I think I have finally Found My Skin!
