Did you know ?

most sunscreens contain chemical filters. When applied on skin, these filters are spread in the water and are highly polluting for the aquatic environment, even at low concentration.
When exposed to them, coral reefs turn white and die within 48 hours.

16 000 TO 25 000
tons
of sunscreen are used each year
in the tropical zone

4000 TO 6000
tons
of sunscreen dilute in water
and end up on coral reefs.

EQ decided to take action before
it is too late by creating
the first sunscreen certified as
non-toxic
to coral reefs and the marine environment.

EQ is committed to selecting pure ingredients that are good for skin and the environment. Our range's formulas are certified by ECOCERT® and COSMEBIO® accredited. The entire production process is supervised and checked, from the origin of the ingredients to them being placed on the shelves of your favourite shop.

THE ORGANIZATIONS

ECOCERT® is an organisation specialized in checking and certifying that products are the result of organic farming. It gives products the COSMEBIO® accreditation and is very careful when it comes to the selection of raw materials and the type of ingredients and preservatives that are authorized. Each formula complies to clear set of specifications.

COSMEBIO® eis the professional association for natural, ecological and organic cosmetics. The ECO and BIO labels from COSMEBIO® are accredited product by product, aiming to guaranty the dedication of companies they accredit and to guide consumers who can be confident in the authenticity of ecological and biological products that fit a number of ethic criteria according to the "Ecological and Organic Cosmetic" Charter.
