Why use organic sun protection?
What is the difference between organic sunscreen and conventional sunscreen?
An organic sunscreen is composed of mineral filters, your choice of titanium dioxide and / or zinc oxide. The majority of the ingredients contained in an organic sunscreen are biodegradable and are not toxic to humans. A conventional sunscreen is made up of chemical filters. As their name suggests, these are unnatural filters that were created for this specific purpose. If chemistry is not always harmful, it is singled out here since the vast majority of chemical filters are suspected of being endocrine disruptors.
What is the impact on our health and the environment?
Endocrine disruptors are substances that interfere with the hormonal system (reproductive systems, thyroid, adrenal glands, pancreas, etc.) and undermine natural functions and mechanisms of the body. Conventional sunscreens are not only bad for your health, since they also have a negative impact on the environment. Unlike mineral filters, chemical filters do not degrade and kill the corals present in the sea. While it is unattractive to meet coral cemeteries (white in color instead of their coral red color), corals are also a living space for the surrounding fish.
Are organic sunscreens as effective?
A sunscreen, organic or conventional, is effective if it filters UVA and UVB rays. This is why you should always check that your cream is certified anti-UVA and UVB. Mineral filters can be as effective as chemical filters, just follow the rules specific to sun exposure: no exposure between 11 am and 4 pm, and application of sunscreen every 2 hours. p >
