(ETX Daily Up) – Long identified for its health- and environmentally-friendly compounds, sunscreens have been reinvented in recent years to respond to the concerns of the public looking for natural, eco-friendly products. planet. While the sweet scent of the holiday begins to poison men and women around the world, here are some clean, innovative formulas that will protect you from UV rays all summer long.

While more than 80% of skin cancers are linked to excessive sun exposure, according to Public Health France, choosing sun protection as your summer vacation approach is especially important. If it is desirable to choose an appropriate protection factor, in addition to a product from the sun’s rays that suits each skin and its needs, men and women today are looking for other creams, oils and milks that protect the skin from the harmful effects of the sun without harming their health or the environment, and they are gradually turning to (more) From natural formulations.

Stop harmful ingredients

To meet everyone’s expectations, many brands have developed new formulas that block out controversial ingredients and filters, to the fullest for some, completely for others, often relying on mineral screens – titanium dioxide and zinc oxide powder – that are less harmful to the skin. Such is the case for French natural sun protection brand SeventyOne Percent, one of their flagship products, Eco Sun Spray Invisible, formulated with 100% mineral filters to protect against both UVA and UVB rays, both for adults and children alike. With vegetable oils of jojoba, sunflower and organic Buriti, to bring other benefits to the skin. A vegan alternative, as a bonus, and made in France, which also works to protect the oceans.

This was not the case a few years ago, but metal filters are (almost) the norm today, or at least an integral part of the product lines of many brands. And when that’s not the case, today’s sunscreens are foolproof without the organic octocrylene sunscreen, a compound that researchers have questioned. Bioregena, Korres, La Biosthétique or even Praïa are among the players now offering formulas consisting of a limited list of ingredients that are as natural and healthy as possible.

(Partially) Biodegradable Formulas

The chemical compounds in some sunscreens are also harmful to corals, and thus to biodiversity. This discovery prompted the authorities in some countries to ban sunscreens that are toxic to coral reefs – for example Hawaii and the Palau archipelago. Since then, brands have reinvented themselves to offer products with less impact on the planet, such as Laboratoires de Biarritz, whose organic Alga Maris range aims to be non-toxic to marine ecosystems, but so have many brands – notably the ones listed above. – Who are already working to get more natural formulas.

Others rely on biodegradable formulas, up to a minimum of 90%, such as Biotherm with its Waterlover range, but also Garnier Ambre Solaire and its eco-designed milk, or Biosolis and many more organic and natural sun care products. Let’s say, no sunscreen today can guarantee that it will be beneficial for coral reefs, but betting on natural and/or biodegradable formulas will necessarily reduce your impact on the planet.
