Frequently asked questions

Why does your cream have an SPF25?
Increasing an SPF is possible by multiplying solar filters in a cream. We preferred opting for a short ingredient list and using one single solar filter: zinc oxide, which we judged to be the safest for our health and the planet.

Bear in mind that the difference between an SPF25 and an SPF50 mainly depends on the exposure time during which your skin is protected. The percentage of filtered UV rays is more or less the same (2% difference).

We focused on what's essential to us: a solid sun cream with an SPF25, which is safe, zero waste, with a natural filter. 

Does your sun cream resist hot weather?
Our sun cream has been made to resist heat and has successfully been tested at 50¬įC. It will simply become a bit creamier if it's very hot but will then harden again.

Does your sun cream harm coral reefs? 
So far, no certifications are able to certify that a solar product has zero impact on marine life.

However, studies have shown that the impact of mineral filters are much lower than those of chemical filters. 

We don't want to risk promising you that our sun cream is totally danger-free for the environment. Nonetheless, we are convinced that using zinc oxide as our solar filter is currently the best possible compromise for a sun cream to be natural and efficient.

Does your sun cream contain any nanoparticles? 
It is forbidden to mention that a cream is free from nanoparticles, as all mineral filters are likely to contain some.

Today, no official method exists to identify the size and proportion of particles. The different methods used (scanning electron microscope, DLS, etc.) can impact the results obtained.

As for the zinc oxide we use in our cream, according to the documents sent by our supplier, this ingredient isn't considered as a nanomaterial according to European regulations. Currently, different regulations exist: the European Cosmetic Regulations sets the threshold at 1% of nanoparticles to define a nanomaterial, French authorities accept a tolerance of 10% facing the measuring difficulties for nanoparticles, and the European Commission sets the limit at 50%.

In short, you currently have two choices on the market:
- mineral filters which may contain nanoparticles without needing to mention it, who have been analysed with a method which will benefit them.
- chemical filters which can cause allergies, irritations, and hormonal disruptions for some. They also potentially contain nanoparticles without needing to mention it.

Even though none of these two choices are fully satisfying, sun exposure can't be considered without any sun protection. You have to choose what seems like the best alternative for you.
