Founder Tiffany Masterson, who is a Houston native, wrote on her brand's site that, "Some of us can give huge dollar amounts, others can give only one dollar, others can only offer their prayers and we remain sensitive to that. All are equally important." She announced that the brand will be donating to recovery efforts. Its Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense SPF 30 ($36) is famed for not leaving a white cast on skin.
