A PROFESSIONAL surfer, skin doctor and builder sit around a campfire, dreaming of a sunscreen they can wear and “feel good about”.
For Jake Paterson, Scott McGregor, David Lodge and their partners Aeron, Katrina and Sally, it was a family surfing trip at Gnaraloo, that marked the beginning of an exciting, new business venture.
Western Australian based, We are Feel Good Inc. launched in 2016, after years of researching, developing, refining and testing.
The company prides itself in using a traditional staple of indigenous Australia – the Kakadu plum – which has been used in both food and medicine for more than 40,000 years.
Labelled the native ‘wonder fruit’, the plum is almost exclusively wild harvested with production extending from Broome, across the Northern Territory and into Queensland.
Company co-founder, skin doctor and cosmetic physician Dr Scott McGregor said the group found a gap in the market for high quality sunscreen and decided to take matters into their own hands.
