The Company was founded by Ron Rice in 1969. It was the largest private manufacturer of sun care products in the United Statesmarker until being acquired in May 2007 by Playtex Products, Inc.[171434], which when combined with Playtex's other brand of sun care, Banana Boat, made Playtex the largest manufacturer of sun care products in the Western Hemispheremarker. Shortly thereafter, Playtex Products was purchased by Energizer Holdings Inc. in a deal valued at $1.9 billion.[171435]

They have sponsored bikini competitions for women around the country and the world every year to seek out spokesmodels with beautiful faces, exceptional figures, charm, and knowledge in skincare as spokesmodels for their products.

Hawaiian Tropic also partnered with Playboy in the erotica 1995 movie, Playboy: The Girls of Hawaiian Tropic, Naked in Paradise [171436].

The company sponsors the Sun Fun Festival in Myrtle Beach, South Carolinamarker and since 1970's, has sent out its bikini clad girls to the 24 hours of Le Mansmarker as promo girls.
