An SPF of 30 is an excellent choice and sufficient for solar protection. Our sunscreen is rated 30+ because the results obtained by an independent certified laboratory were higher than SPF 30. What is SPF? SPF is an indication of protection (Sun Protection Factor). This indication measures mainly the length of sun protection following application. The SPF is multiplied by 10 minutes, which means an SPF of 20 gives 300 minutes or 5 hours of protection.
Douce Mouse sunscreen provides a physical protection and stays on the surface of the skin, unlike sunscreens containing chemical filters which are absorbed by the epidermis.
All of the ingredients in Douce Mousse’s sunscreen meet the strictest standards of natural and organic composition.
Almost all sun lotions using chemical filters are absorbed by our children’s skin. Even natural ingredients such as titanium dioxide and zinc oxide can be composed of nanoparticles, too fine to stay on the skin’s surface. Search for products that mention “without nanoparticles.”
A physical sunscreen is applied uniformly on the skin without penetrating it. As soon as the cream becomes transparent, move on to another part of the body. The sunscreen has to stay on the surface of the epidermis in order to maximize its effect. A physical sunscreen is effective as soon as it’s applied, unlike chemical filters which need to be applied 20-30 minutes before sun exposure.
