The Company was established in 1969. The founder of the company is Ron Rice. He started the company with a $500.00 loan, that he took from his father. He combined the first batch of Natural Sun care Product in a metal bucket and he was selling it in his garage. After rapid success, he became the largest private producer of sun care products in America until the company was sold to Playtex Products Incorporation. The company launched series of sun protection products in alliance with Banana Boat. Later on Playtex became the largest manufacturer of sun care products in the West Cost. Shortly, Playtex Products was acquired by Energizer Holdings Incorporation for $1.9 billion dollars.

The Hawaiian Tropic logo features two different type fonts, while the T letter from Tropic mimics a palm tree. A couple of orchid flowers are supposed to put forward the entire atmosphere of the Hawaiian Islands, as well as imply their use of botanical based formulas. The two flowers are particularly visible on all the bottles, being an easily recognizable signature. All the Hawaiian Tropic packaging solutions resume to plastic bottles colored differently; most of these colors are light, summer colors, except for the Tanning line which features different shades of brown.
