We recently sat down with the brand legend to talk all things suncare.

Model and entrepreneur Winnie Harlow launched her beauty brand Cay Skin in 2022, but the idea for the skincare line actually came about after her SI Swimsuit feature in ’19, when she posed for the magazine in Great Exuma, Bahamas

“While I was on set, we couldn’t really find any SPF that looked amazing on my skin, so I didn’t reapply like I should,” Harlow explains. “And it really made me think, why is there nothing on the market that looks incredible on all skin tones? SPF that just makes you look amazing and feel amazing—and when I saw that gap in the market, I decided to create Cay Skin.”

Two years into the business, Cay Skin is an award-winning suncare brand that has been named to Glamour’s Best Luxury Skin Care Products of 2023 list and was included in Bustle’s Best Skincare Products of 2023.
