Summer, sun, warmth… and all that ideally, by the ocean. For me, that’s the best time of the year because, when the sun shines, everything is sweeter. It’s warm, bright and you feel well and relaxed. No wonder that Max and I already fled cold German winter and traded it for mild temperatures back in January and February, when we went to Marrakech and Nice. Later, in March and April, we went to Mallorca for springtime vibes but luckily, summer is arriving in our hometown, too, so no need to travel far away for now.
Enjoying the sun with care
But even though the sun is so very healing for the soul, it’s rays can of course harm us, too. UVA and UVB rays lead to premature aging, sunburns and skin cancer. Thus, a good sun care product is utterly important and must not be forgotten.
I was looking for a good sun care for a long time. A product that would naturally protect my skin from the sun and prevents early aging. But often, sun care products are stuffed with baddies like chemicals and perfume that are not only harming for myself, but also for the oceans of this world…
The new sun care line by Caudalíe
„For my new sun care line, I didn’t want to
make any compromise between the protection of the
skin and the protection of nature.“
Mathilde Thomas – Caudalíe
After many years of research, my favorite French beauty brand Caudalíe* has now come up with an innovative solution concerning the protection of skin and nature. From this May onwards, we all have the possibility to choose from a range of 5 sun care products*, that are both good for our skin and for the oceans.
A shocking number
Each year, ca. 14.000 tons of sunscreen, including their controversial UV filters, especially oxybenzone and octinoxate, are entering the oceans and are destroying the already endangered coral reefs of this world. Caudalíe is banning these filters from their formulas and has developed its own filter system which doesn’t make any compromise between protecting the skin and protecting nature, anymore. For their “Ocean Protect” formula, Caudalíe is solely using 4 authorized filters which have been tested by an independent NGO and proven to be skin friendly.
These 4 synergetic filters are guaranteeing a secure UV-protection, are water resistant, biodegradable and not harming the seaweed. This has been scientifically proven.
Next to the Ocean Protect formula, the products include a caring & patented anti-oxidant complex including vitamin E, extract of spruce and wine grape polyphenols to protect our skin from free radicals and prevent premature aging of the skin.
Enjoying the summer with good conscience
With the new sun care formula by Caudalíe, I can really enjoy summer with a good conscience. The range includes 5 different, wonderfully caring products:
Anti-wrinkle sunscreen LSF 30 or 50*, with Caudalíe anti oxidative complex, which protects our skin from premature aging through the sun.
Sun spray LSF 30 or 50*, which offers secure protection from UV-rays from head to toe. It calms and hydrates our skin with grape water.
Sun oil LSF 30* for an even, beautiful tan and a soft finish. It protects and cares with grape-, sesame- and sunflower-oil and comes without silicones.
And finally, all the tubes and bottles from the Caudalíe sun care range are made of recyclable plastic. I like!
