MORE INFO ON OUR ORGANIC SUNSCREEN
Our organic sunscreen undergoes efficiency tests to guarantee protection against UVA/UVB. We also carry out random effectiveness tests on our products. This guarantees the level of protection of the manufactured batches.
We have always used mineral sunscreens of natural origin (hence the very light white veil for index 50+). We use titanium particles with a size between 185 and 300 nm. With this size, the particles are much too large to pass through the epidermis; they remain on the surface of the skin to fully play their role as a screen against UV rays.
