The Lovea sunscreen range is certified organic by Ecocert and made by a French company called Laboratoires Biocos. Pioneers in certified organic sun care products, the company philosophy is to make available to everyone more natural cosmetics, more respectful to the human being and his environment, simply more socially responsible. Enriched by 19 years of experience, the company has made a vocation of conceiving, and making accessible to the largest number, natural, certified organic cosmetic care.
In a context where well being and environmental respect are at the centre of priorities, Laboratoires Biocos has associated authentic natural ingredients and technological innovation, with the objective of offering healthy and effective products, whose sensory pleasure rivals that of conventional cosmetics.
Lovea is the top selling organic sunscreen in the French market. The formulas combine Tahitian Monoi Oil, a low level natural sunscreen with stronger mineral sun blocks. The certified organic creams are lightly scented with natural essential oils and provide UVA & UVB protection. The new formulas apply without white traces and the kids range is also unscented. Lovea was the first organic sunscreen to meet eco-cert's organic standards in 2008.
LOVEA Bio uses 100% mineral filters. Unlike chemical filters, mineral filters do not penetrate the skin, they form an invisible barrier on the surface of the skin which reflects UVA-UVB rays. Mineral filters do not interact with your skin and they start working as soon as they are applied. What’s more by using bio-degradable mineral filters you are doing your bit to protect wildlife and marine plant life!
