Why SPF protection is so important ?

The topic of sun protection for each of us should be one of the most important if we are talking about proper care of our skin. Why? Because during sun exposure, even if we do not tan deliberately, apart from supplementing our body with Vitamin D3 or getting a beautiful tan, we can gain: unwanted skin redness, burns of various degrees, sun discoloration, and even a life-threatening melanoma – skin cancer. Without proper sun protection we expose our skin, so it is so important to use products with filters.

Radiation is divided into UVA and UVB

UVA = permanent exposure
  • 95% of the UV radiation reaching Earth
  • its intensity is constant throughout the day, regardless of weather conditions and season
  • penetrates through clouds, glasses and into deeper layers of skin, up to the dermis
  • does not cause erythema
  • contributes to photosensitizing reactions
  • is the main cause of photoaging of the skin
UVB = reddened skin
  • 5% of the UV radiation reaching Earth
  • is strongest during the summer from 10am to 3pm.
  • does not penetrate deeply into the skin, it works mainly at the epidermal level
  • is responsible for skin burns and erythema
  • causes a decrease in the body's immune response, which may predispose to skin and other organ tumours

chemical filters vs. mineral filters

As an organic brand for Organic Series products, we have chosen natural mineral filters for a number of benefits
YOUR SHIELD

Mineral (physical) filters - these are compounds in which the particles are so large that they do not have the ability to penetrate deep into the epidermis, unlike chemical filters. Using a product with a physical filter on the surface of the skin creates an impermeable protective film. This is a layer, invisible to the eye, which prevents UV radiation from penetrating into the skin. The product applied to the skin acts as a shield - it reflects and/or disperses radiation, hence the name of physical filters. Their protective effect is not associated with chemical reactions but with the physical process of light reflection.

The group of mineral filters includes two compounds:
Titanium dioxide (Titanium Dioxide), zinc oxide (Zinc Oxide)

Both are considered to be wide-spectrum filters, i.e. protecting against both UVA and UVB radiation
SAFE FOR SENSITIVE SKIN

Protective creams based on physical filters have a number of advantages. Unlike chemical filters, they are very often recommended in case of skin hypersensitivity or tendencies to skin allergies. Therefore, products containing mineral filters are recommended even for the most sensitive skins, for allergy sufferers and for children.

More permanent protection

Mineral filters are stable, i.e. they do not lose their properties over time. In practice, this means that under ideal conditions, e.g. when the product has not been rubbed off or washed away from the skin surface, there is no need to reapply the product. Of course, it is safest to apply mineral filter cream every 2 hours. Especially when we are most exposed to sunlight, when our skin is sweating or when we are just on the beach and feel like swimming in the sea.

Environmentally friendly

It turns out that some chemical filters lead to the extinction of coral reefs. They impede the breeding capacity of the insects and also have a negative impact on fish and plankton. A small concentration of a given filter in water is enough to cause damage. Some filters are also guilty of water oxidation, which interferes with the proper development of mussels. Therefore, chemical filters can be considered potentially dangerous and of course have many advantages. However, in this case mineral filters are much safer for our environment.
