1. Can you introduce yourself and the Active Life

My name is Melissa Allen and my husband is Lonnie Allen. We are both outdoor athletes, mountain bikers, dirt bike riders, scuba divers, paddlers, among other sports. Together, we founded Active Life Company and launched it in 2019.

2. How was the Active Life born? How did you start?

The idea for Active Life Company was born when our puppy, Bodie, began licking the top of Lonnie's head. So much so that it made them take notice. This resulted in an appointment with a dermatologist, and what turned out to be Basal Cell Carcinoma. From that point, we knew it was no longer an option for Lonnie not to wear sunscreen.

3. What makes the Active Life Company different? Can you explain your products with details?Melissa & Lonnie Kovr Sunscreen FoundersKovr Military-Grade Sunscreen is designed for the outdoor athlete. Unlike other sunscreens on the market, Kovr is meant to be used while performing an activity. It allows your skin to breath, and it's water resistant for people that sweat. And as an SPF 30, it blocks 97% of harmful UVA and UVB rays.

4. What reactions do you get from your clients? Do they love your products?

People love that Kovr Sunscreen is moisturizing and protective, but still feels light on their skin. They also love that it's safe for the environment because it's coral reef safe and biodegradable. In addition, it's not tested on animals.

5. What are a few advantages of purchasing sunscreen from the Active Life Company?

We accept credit cards, Venmo, Paypal, and offer 2-day shipping, you can find us on as well as
