Who We Are

With my boys

Nammu was created to promote a more healthy lifestyle for my 3 boys who love the outdoors and water activities. They spend hours in the sun, swimming, diving, splashing and playing in the water. I was very worried about the extended hours of exposure to sun and  harmful UV rays which are stronger when magnified under water. While their bodies were protected with sun blocking swimwear, UVA and UVB sunscreen lotion, their  heads were exposed to the sun all of the time.

I was even more concerned when I found out that my eldest son had growing brown spots on his head, due to extended sun exposure.  I had to find a solution and  started a search for a sun hat that  they can wear while in the water. I tried many different hats but nothing seemed to work. Many sun hats we tried  would fall off in the water, and those hats with visors, would be obstructive under water. Cotton bandana and other wraps were getting soggy, quickly fill up with water and would fall off their heads. The most commonly seen silicon swim cap wasn’t comfortable for fun, play and swim in the sun.  Lycra (spandex), although comfortable on the head, did not pass the “cool” test, and my kids refused to wear it. While searching for the perfect solution for under water head  protection, it became abundantly clear that UV protective head gear was either not effective or nonexistent. I  seached for a suitable hat on beaches, splash pads, swimming pools and water parks but could not find a suitable product.
