The Protekt Blog

Protekt is more than just eco friendly sunscreen and performance supplements. Our founding team has been truly fortunate to serve with, work with and cross paths with some truly amazing human beings over the years. Our routines newsletter was created in an effort to share the knowledge and life-experience possessed by our little community of friends and family. Our goal is to expand our community and hopefully inspire others to share their passion and expertise. We believe this is the true gift that technology and social media provide when used for the betterment of others: a free platform to learn, improve, and challenge ourselves to truly experience all that life has to offer.
