OnMarket has successfully completed the Solar D equity crowdfunding campaign. Solar D is a company that licences Vitamin D promoting SPF technology. Solar D is the first to market with a new technology that aims to tackle the global issue of Vitamin D deficiency.
In January 2018, I wrote a blog outlining a simple strategy that had produced pretty amazing returns over the previous 4 years. Recently, I spent a bit of time in the bush with no internet or TV. It got me thinking, how has it gone for the people that read the blog and started the strategy at that point in time?
Solar D was specifically designed to let in more of the UVB light so our bodies can produce more vitamin D without sacrificing the Sun Protection Factor (SPF).
Vitamin D is important in maintaining good wellbeing, however, it is important that sun protection is not sacrificed in order to achieve our required vitamin D levels. No other sunscreen has been able to create this technology.
It’s estimated that there are over 1 billion people worldwide that are considered vitamin D deficient. Even in Australia, despite the abundance of sunshine, studies show that over one third of Australians are vitamin D deficient.
Since the inception of sunscreen in 1938 by Franz Grieter and the invention of water-resistant sunscreen in 1977, sunscreen technology hasn’t really changed. Traditional sunscreens screen out almost all the ultra violet (UV) light. However, recent studies have shown that not all UV light is equal. In fact, some of the sun’s UV light can be beneficial for our health.

Like many Australians, in mid-2017 Marty and Jeremy Rowell watched the ABC’s The War On Waste and were perplexed in particular by the size of the take-away coffee cup waste problem and the lack of a genuine mass-market solution. Feeling inspired, the brothers set out to buck the trend of the “take – make – and dispose” linear economic model.
Australians collectively send an estimated 1.2 billion single-use paper coffee cups to landfill every year. The ‘keep cup’ seems to have made only a minimal difference to this number. We interview brothers Marty & Jeremy Rowell, the inventors of The Cup eXchange, Australia’s single use coffee cup solution.
