**Please note that our products have always contained fragrances of natural origin (except for unscented products). The only thing that has changed is the way we display this information on our packaging. EWG has requested that we add the term *fragrance (parfum) to our list of ingredients because their internal standard now make it mandatory for companies to indicate which ingredients are part of the fragrance.

Frequently asked questions

Our liquid sunscreens are formulated with water and glycerin base, while our plastic free sun sticks contain oil, butter and wax. Our liquid sunscreens have a texture that provides a moisturizing feeling to the skin, while our sun sticks are more nourishing. To choose the right sun product for your needs, it is important to consider your skin type. People with dry skin or those looking for more nourishing protection may prefer our sun sticks, while those with oilier skin may prefer our liquid sunscreens.

Our sunscreens are partially water resistant because some of their ingredients, including zinc oxide, naturally repel water.

However, we prefer not to label our sunscreens as such because after they are exposed to water, they will no longer provide protection that is as effective.

Therefore, we recommend reapplying our sunscreen at least every 2 hours, and after swimming or excessive sweating.

Yes, all our sun care products have a broad-spectrum sun protection factor of 30* and therefore protect the skin against UVA and UVB rays. The zinc oxide that we use in our sunscreen products is considered an excellent component to block UVA and UVB rays effectively. Also, the best way to protect yourself from UVA and UVB rays is to apply adequate sun protection, wear covering clothing, hats and sunglasses, and limit the amount of time you are in the sun.

There are two types of UV filters: chemical and physical.

Chemical filters use active ingredients that get absorbed by the skin to block UV rays and protect the skin.

Physical (or mineral) filters create a physical barrier on the skin to block UV rays.

According to the Environmental Working Group (EWG), zinc oxide is considered to be the safest physical filter.

Everyone is exposed to the harmful effects of the sun. However, some people are more vulnerable to the sun’s harmful effects because of their skin type, genetic and hereditary disposition, and their skin’s reaction to the sun. While it is true that very dark skin contains more melanin and has a better defence mechanism than light skin, UVA and UVB rays can have negative effects on all skin types. Having dark skin can give a false sense of protection from the sun, but beware! Dermatologists therefore recommend using a sunscreen with a protection factor of at least 30 for all skin types.
