EQ Combi stick very high protection

The month of December means not only holiday festivities, but also the first ski and snowboard runs of the season for mountain lovers. When subjected to the cold and wind, your skin needs specific protection to respect and nourish it, even when you cannot feel the direct effects of the sun.
EQ presents its new high and very high protection (SPF50 and SPF50+) combi stick-cream in a practical nomad format that will follow you in all your outdoor sports activities, whether on water or snow.
This complete solution is certified by the highly demanding Ecocert organization and carries the BIO label. It is suitable for the whole family and will protect and nourish your skin and lips, which are so sensitive to the sensation of tightness that is linked to exposure to the sun and cold.


 

As with all the products of its solar range, the EQ combi-stick is certified non-toxic for coral reefs and the marine environment. You may be asking yourself what the link is between coral and mountains. EQ and the association « Du Flocon à la vague » (From the Snowflake to the Wave) will help you understand more clearly the importance of the protection of the aquatic environment at all stages of the water cycle, because whether at the top of the ski slopes or at the peak of a surfing session, water remains the same.

Water cycle process: from mountains to oceans

The Earth is the planet of the solar system which has the most water on its surface and in its atmosphere. However, this water is unevenly distributed over the surface of the globe and not all regions are fortunate to have the same access to it.
Our mountains are reservoirs of freshwater and ensure that our territories are among the most privileged places in the world.
Our rivers are the arteries of this water cycle, which connect the mountains and the oceans in a perpetual cycle that has enabled terrestrial life to exist and develop.


Anything that man discards at any altitude will inexorably end up in the water cycle. Only the awareness of this fact today can assure the preservation of this precious resource.


Because 90% of our cells consist of it, water and the water cycle demand our full attention to avoid pollution or overexploitation. The needs of water management largely exceed local or individual concerns: at stake are the critical health, social, economic,
and therefore democratic issues that will shape the world of tomorrow around its fair sharing and the reduction of the accumulated pollution. We must be responsible.

A river is a history book that tells the story of war and peace, happiness and affliction, tales and legends and …
… above all, the majesty of the landscapes which day after day bring us the serenity and the harmony that we need so much, more than ever before.

« Man protects what he loves, and what he understands »

Ce récit a de la magie, celle de la vie : les astéroïdes et comètes qui ont formé la Terre en s’agglomérant contenaient l’eau qui constitue celle de notre planète. C’était il y a 4 milliards d’années. The Earth then went through a period of degassing, when the volcanoes liberated the water in the form of steam and when the temperature dropped below 100°C.
The atmospheric vapour condensed to form the oceans. That was 3.8 billion years. A small quantity of the water vapour remained in the atmosphere and with the CO2 from volcanoes maintained the greenhouse effect at a certain level – without which the Earth would be just a ball of ice!

The water cycle is simply the cycle of life. Along with the carbon cycle, it determines the climate to a large extent.

This is a permanent cycle.
Since geological times, water has passed from one « reservoir » to another. It regenerates and is always different. It is never created, never lost. It just moves through its cycles.
On average, it remains in the atmosphere from 8 to 10 days, but remains 37,000 years in the sea before it evaporates again.

Today’s water is therefore the same water that our ancestors knew and that we must protect for future generations.
