We love the sun! However, its UV-A and UV-B rays should be enjoyed with caution. The high-energy UV-B rays penetrate the epidermis, disrupt the skin barrier and cause sunburn. UV-A rays also penetrate the deeper layers of your skin, where they can cause long-term damage to the collagen and elastin framework. To offer you natural protection against unhealthy rays, we have developed a sunscreen that uses purely mineral filters (titanium dioxide and zinc oxide) and that is free of fragrances, microplastics and silicones.
This is how mineral filters work: Mineral filters form a creamy layer on the skin that reflects UV radiation and thus prevents it from penetrating our skin. That's why it's very important to apply our sunscreen evenly so that the protective layer has no weak spots.
Our sunscreen with SPF 30 is perfect for use while on vacation or as an addition to your daily facial care routine.
Our sun cream has a UV-B light protection factor of 30 and a UV-A protection of 11. If you apply it carefully, you can be sure of full protection. It's best to keep the following points in mind, then you can enjoy your day in the sun without worrying:
- Always use enough sunscreen (1 tablespoon per body part: leg, arm, chest, abdomen, etc. & 1 teaspoon for face)
- Apply the sun cream as the last step of your daily skincare routine
- Reapply sunscreen after bathing or sweating
- Reapply sunscreen about every 2-3 hours
- Avoid midday sun
- Wear special clothing, especially if you have sensitive skin.
Personal tip: Since I regularly use the AHA peeling, sun protection is really important for my skin. Therefore, the day after the AHA peeling, I always use the sunscreen during the day to give extra protection to the younger, delicate skin that the peeling leaves behind.

FAQs - frequent questions
Our sunscreen is natural. It is not based on synthetic, but on mineral UV filters. This not only protects the environment but also your skin and your organism.
Moreover, chemical filters convert the energy of UV radiation into heat, which can promote inflammatory reactions, especially in blemished or sensitive skin. The mineral filter zinc oxide, on the other hand, even has an anti-inflammatory effect and promotes the healing process. Mineral filters lie on the surface of the skin and reflect UV radiation like a mirror.
Compared to chemical filters, mineral filters do not act in the depth of the skin, but only cover the skin superficially like make-up. Therefore, a slight white film is normal with a mineral filter and is not entirely avoidable. Massage the sun cream evenly into the skin and give it about 10 minutes to absorb completely if you want to apply make-up products on top of it.
Mineral UV filters can come in different particle sizes:
Microparticles and Nanoparticles. Since nanoparticles can enter our bloodstream due to their small size and it is not yet clear what effects this has on the human organism, we completely avoid nanoparticles in our sun cream.
