Natural Sun Care

"All in all, the cosmetics industry is one of the most unregulated industries in the world, and this means that we need to be extra careful in choosing safe ingredients."

  • SPF - It is recommended to use at least SPF30. This means your skin is 30 times more protected against the sun's UVB rays than bare skin. 
  • Ingredients - zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are generally recognized as safe and effective. Try to avoid synthetic UV filters, preservatives, silicones, fragrance and colours. 
  • Reef safe - Chemical UV-filters have been shown to bleach coral reefs even at very low concentrations (Danovaro et al. 2008). This is considered a major threat to several coral reef areas around the world (Sharifan et al. 2016), and bans of chemical UV-filters are being implemented in several regions worldwide to fight the problem.
