Our Solution

Mineral sunscreens: The solution to chemical sunscreens.

Chemical sunscreens are absorbed by the skin and are not effective until 30 minutes after application. The UV rays are then transformed by the chemical sunscreens, resulting in potentially allergenic and phototoxic substances. Also, sun care products that contain chemical sunscreens are one of the factors responsible for the destruction of corals. Indeed, these sunscreens promote the propagation of viruses that kill corals. Increasingly, certain regions prohibit the use of chemical-based sun care products on their beaches*. On the other hand, mineral sunscreens (Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide) remain on the skin’s surface and reflect UV rays (like mirrors). Their effectiveness is immediate and their duration longer. The whitening effect on the skin fades very quickly thanks to their liquid texture that, being soft to the touch, is pleasant to apply.
