The Tinted Sun Stick SPF50+ by Alga Maris boasts a very high natural broad-spectrum UVA-UVB sun protection in a thick cream with light mineral tint, to protect all the most exposed parts (nose, ears, cheekbones, hands...) of the Face and Body.
Hypoallergenic (tested under dermatological control), it is ideal for extreme conditions : intense sun exposure (sea, mountain), during athletic events for example, or to hide and protect at the same time fresh scars, hyperpigmentation/melasma, pregnancy mask, acne... that shouldn't be exposed to the sun to heal properly.
The Alga Gorria® complex, extract from red seaweed developed exclusively by Laboratoires de Biarritz, an extremely strong antioxidant ingredient (five times more than Vitamin C), protects against ageing signs and external aggressions, with the help of hydrating Beeswax.
Hydrating & nourishing thanks to its natural ingredients of anti-dehydration Jojoba & regenerating Sunflower Oils, the Tinted Sun Stick SPF50+ is suitable to all skins, being highly water-resistant (ie perspiration), non-sticky and fragrance-free.
Its tint is made of mineral pigments, and its natural broad spectrum SPF UVA-UVB comes from non-nano mineral filters.
Why are non-nano mineral filters Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide better for both you and the planet ? Here's the list :
- being non-nano, mineral filters stay on your skin, they are not absorbed by the skin like chemical filters.
- they reflect the UV rays, like a mirror, contrary to chemical filters who penetrate the skin and transform the UV, creating allergic and phototoxic reactions.
- they are immediately effective! (for chemical filters, count 30 minutes before full effectiveness).
- their protection is longer-lasting (but you should still reapply in case of prolonged outside exposition, of course).
- last but not very least, they are safe to the environment, coral reef in particular. The chemical filters on the other hand favour the propagation of virus destructing corals, to the point that regions are starting to banish chemical filter sun creams on their beaches (yes really!) !
Keeping with their eco-responsible vision when creating all their products, les Laboratoires de Biarritz created Alga Maris, a mineral & natural sun protection skincare line to safely enjoy the sun, for you, your kids and the environment (mineral sun protection is coral-reef safe and allowed on all beaches).
With minimalist yet very stable formulations using natural and organic ingredients, few preservatives for the highest tolerance even on sensitive skins, they are using in-house developed patented actives from the ocean.
Always looking out for the newest and safest ways to protect your skin with clinically approved textures and protections, les Laboratoires de Biarritz are also proudly made in France, supporting the local economy and are actively engaged in preserving the environment and ocean they find their inspiration from. This goes from biodegradable ingredients, recyclable packaging to local, short distribution network and beach clean-up.
Try their products and you'll make peace with safe effective sun protection, even enjoying them! Don't hesitate to contact us if you need some help choosing.
