Our Story

How can I avoid getting sunburned?

This was the question SunSense founder, Åsulv Tønnesland, set out to explore after experiencing a serious sunburn on a beach even though he had sunscreen on. After extensive literature searches, discussions with dermatologists and scientists, he realized there was a need to better control and manage personal UV-exposure. People needed to be empowered to safely enjoy the sun to minimize the risk of serious diseases such as skin cancer and to maximize the benefits of staying in the sun. That´s why he invented SunSense Pro, a wearable UV tracker!

SunSense was established as a private, limited company. It is located in Kristiansand, Norway and in Boca Raton, Florida. 

SunSense is dedicated to developing and bringing the very best of cutting edge personal UV sensor technology.

SunSense has a high-quality management team, advisory board and board of directors with extensive experience from pharma, healthcare, electronics/ICT and finance.
