Why do we use mineral filters?


Mineral filters and chemical filters, what are the differences?

How do they work?

Mineral filters are deposited on the skin to reflect UV rays, like a screen. They do not penetrate the epidermis; while chemical filters are composed of organic molecules and penetrate the epidermis to absorb UV rays instead of the skin.

What is the effect when applied?

Mineral filters can leave a more or less significant white veil on the skin; while chemical filters easily penetrate the skin, without a trace.

Do the two types of filters have a difference in efficiency?

Mineral filters are effective upon application; on the other hand, chemical filters have a protective power 20 to 30 minutes after application.

Are they suitable for all skin types?

Mineral filters yes, they are hypoallergenic and suitable for all skin types; for chemical filters it is a little more complicated, because they can be allergenic or irritating to sensitive skin.

What filters are used?

The mineral filters used are Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide; regarding chemical filters there are a multitude of chemical filters which are combined to maximize protection.

A subject that is very close to our hearts, in addition to protecting the skin, is also the protection of our environment. In fact, mineral filters and chemical filters do not have the same impact on the environment. We explain to you why we chose mineral filters instead of chemical filters, both to protect you and to protect the oceans!

What effect do mineral filters have on the environment?

Mineral filters are 100% natural, they are present in all organic sunscreens and only have a toxic effect on marine flora if present in Nano form; however our filters are 100% mineral without nanoparticles.

Our mineral filters respect the epidermis and the environment, and make it an excellent shield against UVA and UVB rays. 

What effect do chemical filters have on the environment?

Oxybenzone and Octinoxate are filters banned by Hawaii because they cause discoloration and deformation of the coral; Octocrylene has been banned in the Palau Islands since 2020; Parabens and silicone are supposed endocrine disruptors and reprotoxic to marine fauna.
