In summertime, we cannot give up on our sunscreen. This is THE product we must carry in our beach bag, our sports bag and even in our purse…and why not even in our box 😉 ?!
With so many debates around sunscreen, conventional or bio, we have managed to find a truly Clean brand! We have selected the ideal sunscreen for you :
– It doesn’t leave white marks
– It is nanoparticle-free, paraben-free and it doesn’t contain chemical filters
– It’s made in France
– It’s certified by Ecocert, labeled CosmeBio
– and the best is yet to come in this article 🙂
In our summer box, Box Evidence presents to you the EQ Love sunscreen. Why? Because we want you to be protected from the sun, while respecting your skin and our planet!
The history of EQ Love
EQ Love is a young brand, labeled by Ecocert and Cosmebio, born and based in Bidart since 2011.
Franck Bywalski, surfer, entrepreneur, globetrotter and visionary, is the one who imagined an innovative concept around well-being, with products conceived for surfers and for people who love our beautiful planet.
A concept, but there is more to it! We make a point of honor on their RES.PON.SIBLE ethics!
And yes, we tend to forget that in tropical areas between 16.000 – 25.000 tons of sunscreen are being used every year, and between 4.000 – 6.000 tons of sunscreen are being released on the coral reefs every year.
Some anti-UV filters from sunscreens activate viruses that multiply and kill the micro-algae located in the coral tissues. Unfortunately, this damage is irreversible: the corals go white and die in 48h.
EQ decided to act before it was too late and they created the first sunscreen assortment that is non eco-toxic to corals or to the marine environment. The brand is committed to selecting ingredients that are pure and beneficial for the skin, and also not harmful to the environment.
Issued from the EQ scientific research, the SPF15 MEDIUM PROTECTION Sunscreen was created under dermatological control, in order to ensure a good tolerance and solar protection against UVA and UVB rays.
BIO certified by the very demanding ECOCERT® organization, the SPF15 Sunscreen is perfect for normal conditions of sunshine; the skin will not be affected by sunburns or by intolerance to chemical filters.
It is comfortable and its light covering texture doesn’t get in your eyes; it protects your skin against outdoor climate aggressions. It prevents tautness and it doesn’t dry out your skin.
Its 5 active ingredients create a flawless cream, ideal for the whole family, which ensures an optimal BIO solar protection, while taking care of your skin.
