About Us

Our tech start-up has the mission to improve people’s health and provides them a way to enjoy sun tanning on beaches, or skiing during sunny winter days without fearing an overexposure to UV-rays. As both founders are tech-savvy, we designed a machine learning algorithm to accurately detect your true skin tone. With the help of scientific findings on research papers published by WHO and Nature, we are able to calculate user’s time to sunburn under different UV levels based on their skin tone.


We, Leo and Benedikt, are the proud co-founders of suntastic and derived with the idea for our app during one of our many coffee breaks from studying and a discussion about sunburns. As Ben is only one of the many people who suffer from severe sunburns regularly, we decided to do something about it and suntastic was born. After several months of in-depth research and the development of the core algorithm of suntastic we are exhilarated to present you suntastic where we are certain that we can make a true impact in people’s health and ultimately reduce the amount of people suffering from skin cancer.

What our Customers say

– Alene V.

My friend recommended the app as I am really sensitive about my skin and the results are amazing! Thanks to Suntastic I am always able to see how long I can stay in the sun without running into the risk of getting too much UV rays and getting sunburned. Thanks Suntastic!

– William D.

During my work I spend 100% of it in the office (or home office for now) without getting any chance of being outside. Thus, in my holidays I spend the whole time on the beach to relax but constantly get sunburned. Suntastic provides me the solution I was looking for, even though I think sometimes I could stay longer in the sun before I turn red compared to what you are suggesting  😉

– Christopher C.

I and my wife are super happy with Suntastic as we love traveling and often suffered some severe skin damage. Keep up the good work!
