Firstly, for your health and that of your children. Secondly, because it can be used in water without generating pollution. By using Alphanova organic sunscreen, you are preserving coral reefs, fish and shellfish... Effective on application (unlike chemical filters which need 20 minutes to be effective - the absorption time), mineral sunscreens offer protection that is just as effective as conventional chemical filters without any danger to your health or the planet.
Alphanova Sun has always used mineral sunscreens (hence the very light white haze for the 50+ index). The size of the titanium particles used is between 185 and 300 nm. With this size, the particles used are much too large to penetrate the epidermis; they remain on the skin's surface to fully play their role as a screen against UV rays.
These natural titanium molecules are welded together very tightly to form large blocks called aggregates. Titanium is sometimes the victim of bad press because its use is decried in foodstuffs or in certain inhaled products, whereas the safety of titanium, used as a natural sun filter, has been widely demonstrated through numerous scientific publications and by all the French, European and world authorities.
To reaffirm the harmlessness of Titanium Dioxide, an independent laboratory carried out a study (Skin penetration study on Frantz cell - OECD Protocol 428). The results are clear : the sun filters used in BIO ALPHANOVA organic SUN sun creams remain on the surface of the skin and do not penetrate the skin barrier.
It is called SPF in French, but also SPF in English for "Sun protector factor". This index makes it possible to estimate the degree of protection offered by the sunscreen.
The abbreviation SPF is always followed by a number: 15, 30, 45, 50, etc. This number represents the ratio of the time required for ultraviolet rays to produce a sunburn with and without sunscreen. For example, an SPF of 30 means that you can, in theory, stay in the sun 30 times longer without getting a sunburn.
SPF also tells us how much of the UVB rays are blocked by a sunscreen. For example, an SPF of 15 indicates that the product can block 93% of the UVB rays hitting the protected skin; an SPF of 30 indicates that it will block 96.7%. As you can see, doubling the SPF does not double the sun protection.
Alphanova's SPF 50 sun spray is the highest protection available on the market. The term "sunblock" or "total protection" has been banned in the European labelling regulations since 2009.
Aphanova SunApply the cream evenly and generously to the area to be protected. Reapply frequently, especially after swimming or wiping off. Avoid exposure to the sun between 11am and 3pm.

Since its creation, ALPHANOVA SUN® has chosen to offer organic sun protection that respects both man and the environment, without any chemical filters.
For years, consumers, having had very little information on the subject, have used chemical sun creams, which are both harmful to health and the environment.
Every year, humans dump around 25,000 tonnes of chemical sunscreens into the oceans and seas. And the coral reefs are said to absorb 4,000 tonnes.
The problem is that coral reacts very badly to these chemical filters and ends up dying. This phenomenon has a name, "coral bleaching" and chemical sunscreen is one of the main causes; this has been highlighted by several scientific studies.
Although coral reefs represent less than 0.25% of the earth's surface, they are home to more than 25% of the world's marine life and therefore play a major role in marine biodiversity.
1% FOR THE CORAL > IS ALPHANOVA SANTÉ®'S CONTRIBUTION TO THE FIGHT AGAINST CORAL BLEACHING.
In concrete terms, the brand is committed to donating 1% of the turnover of their ALPHANOVA SUN® range. This money will be used for associative projects aimed at developing nurseries and re-implanting coral. Their investment in this new ecological approach is a way for them to go further and fight against the extinction of thousands of species.
Their first partnership was signed with the St Martin Nature Reserve in the West Indies. This association is carrying out this type of project following the destruction of coral reefs by Hurricane Irma.
