Ditch the notion that sunscreen is only needed at the beach during summer. To fend off the accelerated aging effects of UV rays all year round, it's crucial to have your sunscreen on guard. Featuring natural ingredients, being reef-friendly, and shining as multiple beauty award winners, witness the face-off of the leading sunscreens!
Eco-friendly vegan ingredients
The belief that a higher concentration of chemical components provides better UV protection is a misconception that needs to be dispelled. Made with an impressive 80% naturally derived ingredients, these sunscreens utilize non-nano zinc and titanium dioxide, which do not absorb into the skin but instead form a fine film to reflect UV rays. There are also vegan-certified sun protection options available, offering a variety of choices depending on the ingredients and formulations you prefer.
Smooth and even out skin tone
The intermediary step between makeup and skincare is now clearly the domain of 'sunscreen.' Beyond its primary function of protecting the skin from UV rays, it also offers a tone-up effect derived from mineral filters and a makeup-like function that smoothens and gives the skin surface a silky, luminous coating, like a finely set powder. It provides a beautiful skin tone even without makeup, and when makeup is applied, it ensures a flawless skin preparation.
Reef and marine ecosystem friendly
While physical sunscreens (also known as mineral sunscreens) shield the sun’s rays by creating a physical barrier on the skin, broad spectrum chemical sunscreens use active ingredients to absorb the harmful rays before your skin can. Two ingredients often found in chemical sunscreens are oxybenzone and octinoxate. Both absorb UV rays and are part of the benzophenone family. When these ingredients wear off in the water and reach coral reefs, they can damage the coral’s genetic information, disrupting its reproduction and growth cycles and leading to bleaching, according to a study published in the Archives of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology.
Clinically proven UV protection
Sunscreen must demonstrate immediate effectiveness, arguably more so than any other skincare product. There is ongoing debate about adequate UV protection, but Dr. Orga confidently provides information on this issue. We hold results from certified clinical testing organizations that confirm all our products meet the required SPF/PA values, and have been verified to be free from skin irritants.
Sufficient UV protection for outdoor activities
Sunscreen for surfers is akin to 'safety equipment'—its durability and reliability must be assured. However, continuous and effective protection doesn't have to mean heaviness or discomfort. Even as you ride the waves under the sun all day, you can forget the heaviness, eye irritation, and stuffiness that can come with sunscreen. It's the waves that should be heavy, not the surfer's body.
Cleanse effortlessly w/o any residue
Our sunscreen creates a feather-light, thin barrier that solidly protects your skin but is remarkably vulnerable to a lather of soap. Easy cleansing was our top priority for our sunscreen project. We aim to make sunscreen use a hassle-free part of daily life from an early age, ensuring that removing it after a tiring day is not a burdensome task. We provide an easy wash-off experience. Wondering if your cleanser is up to the task of fully removing sunscreen? Dr. Orga's sunscreen can be easily wiped off with any cleanser that has the power to cleanse the skin of impurities.
