bakslap was started by keen Aussie surfer and lover of the great outdoors, Raph McGowan. It was the tragic loss of his beautiful sister Tess to melanoma skin cancer at age 31, that inspired him to create bakslap.
bakslap is suncream lotion applicator designed to solve the problem of trying to apply lotion to hard-to-reach places…like the middle of your back! Originally developed to offer protection & awareness when enjoying the sunshine, bakslap quickly discovered from customers just how versatile their design was. Today you’ll find the simple but effective product being used by hospitals, dermatologists, for aged care, home beauty, and of course to apply sunscreen.
The bakslap team is proud to be supporting the Noosa Festival of Surfing to help raise awareness for skin cancer and to raise valuable dollars for research through the Melanoma March taking place during the Festival on Sunday 6th March from 3pm.
