To protect the planet, we must first take care of ourselves by cultivating health and vitality from the inside out.
We believe that suncare should be rooted in ingredients found in nature that recharge the body and contribute to its overall well-being – not just protecting the skin.
Not only is mineral suncare simply better, cleaner and more gentle on sensitive skin than chemical suncare, but it is also better for our ocean. Chemical sunscreens wash off our skin while in the ocean, entering our ecosystem and are proven to damage marine life and reefs. We believe our world’s oceans deserve to be loved and respected every day. Their health is a reflection of ours, and now more than ever, these rich ecosystems need our unwavering support. The first step, choosing mineral suncare.
Non-Nano Zinc Oxide
Non-nano zinc oxide is a natural mineral and common sun care ingredient - for good reason. In its natural non-nano size, this suncare ingredient is non-pore clogging, gentle on all skin types, and one of the safest and strongest ingredients in protecting against UVA Rays. Nanoparticles on the other hand, can be small enough to seep into your bloodstream and are proven to be toxic for our bodies.
Aloe Vera is one of the oldest medicinal plants used in skincare. For thousands of years, this ingredient stands true to be one of the most effective natural ingredients for skin rejuvenation and wound healing. Its simple, yet strong, genetic makeup holds anti-inflammatory and antibacterial materials leaving skin clean, hydrated and smooth.
Vitamin C has been celebrated for its antioxidant superpowers. This powerful age-defying ingredient naturally brightens the complexion, increases collagen production, and gives your skin a healthy glow. Unprotected sun exposure and pollution can drain skin of its natural Vitamin C levels, rendering a dull, uneven complexion. Pair this super ingredient with your suncare routine to diminish redness and help protect the skin from long-term damage caused by harmful Uv rays.
Red Raspberry extract is full of antioxidants like Vitamin E and C. Not only is this berry naturally antibacterial and a powerful astringent, studies show that that red raspberry extract fights against signs of sun damage, such as wrinkling, scaling, dark spots, water loss, and epidermal thickening.
When it comes to premium skincare, antioxidants are absolutely the top ingredients, and when it comes to antioxidants, few are as potent as Red Algae. The UV-blocking properties found in Red Algae are actually how fish defend themselves from the sun's harmful rays under the ocean, and these same properties work on our skin as well. Red Algae is also known for its fantastic ability to increase skin moisture, prevent epidermal water loss, improve elasticity, and promote a smoother skin complexion.
