THE WHITE PAPER IN BRIEF :
The sun, its rays and their effects on our skin?
Beware of preconceived ideas: SPF 50 does not mean that the product will protect you for 50 minutes!
SPF is a ratio of time with and without sun protection before sunburn. In other words, it takes 50 times longer to get a sunburn with an SPF50 sunscreen than without. Note that an SPF 30 product blocks 96.7% of UVB rays, while an SPF 50+ blocks 98.3% of UVB 4 rays.
There are 2 types of UV rays:
UVB = Burn - Immediate effect
UVA = Age - Long-term effect
Sunscreens: their origins, benefits and differences?
The light white or covering effect is essential with mineral filters, as it is the very action of natural filters to act as UV barriers.
Beware of preconceived ideas: mineral filters are good for your skin and the environment, while organic filters are bad for your health and the environment. This is not necessarily true: the most dangerous poisons come from nature... The answer is not so simple!
Safety and environment
Suncare products and their efficacy are strictly governed by European regulations. There are no environmental regulations in Europe.
Certain regions of the world have banned certain substances in order to preserve marine ecosystems: oxybenzone and octinoxate have been banned in Hawaii and the Virgin Islands since 2021 and 2020 respectively. Here are 2 filters to look for on ingredient lists and avoid in your products.
Ongoing research into the impact of sunscreens on health is leading to changes in regulations. Octocrylene is currently the subject of controversy, and scientific studies are underway. As a precautionary measure, SeventyOne Percent has excluded it from its formulas for the past 10 years.
Strong points when choosing a solar product?
A pleasant formulation that makes you want to apply the product several times a day for optimum protection, reduced and eco-designed packaging, and a brand committed to nature with transparent communication for a conscious choice of product.
