What is the difference between a chemical filter and a mineral screen?

Chemical or organic filters, of synthetic origin, have to penetrate the epidermis in order to be active. They protect against UV rays by absorbing them. These filters only become active 20 to 30 minutes after application. They are also suspected of being able to modify the hormonal balance of man and pollute the environment (e.g. they participate in coral bleaching).

On the other hand, mineral screens, of totally natural origin, form a protective barrier on the surface of the skin that reflects UV rays like a mirror.

Mineral screens are immediately active, as soon as they are applied.

In organic certification, only mineral screens, namely titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, are permitted.

In addition to their effectiveness against UVB and UVA rays, mineral sunscreens guarantee optimal tolerance and respect for the skin and the environment.


Why do some of your sunscreen products leave a few white marks? 

Organic certified sun protection products contain 100% mineral filters and can make some white marks because the mineral screen powders are white.

These mineral filters in natural sun products act immediately upon application. Very well tolerated by the skin, they have a strong covering power and act as small mirrors that will reflect UV rays.

The higher the sun product's protection factor, the greater the quantity of mineral sunscreens.

In our formulas, the white effect is minimised because we disperse the minerals as much as possible. Our R&D team is constantly working to improve the galenics of our mineral sun products.

Why is the organic sun product range recommended?

How does our range of mineral sunscreens differ from other sunscreens?

Our sunscreens range is a unique organic mineral sun product range, formulated with natural ingredients, which combines 100% natural mineral anti-UV screens and Alga-Gorria®, an active ingredient that neutralizes free radicals. Indeed, for the first time, this patented extract from red seaweed , wiht antioxidant power, is used in Organic cosmetic products. Natural sun products of Les Laboratoires de Biarritz are your best allies all year round to effectively prevent skin damage caused by UV radiation. 


How is the sun protection factor determined ?

The Sun Protection Factor, commonly known under the acronym SPF is the main measurement of the solar protection. The SPF values the protection provided against UVB rays.

It has the advantage of having the same definition in every country and measured by the same International Sun Protection Factor Test Method.

Who are your Meteo Logic® organic cosmetic products designed for?

For everyone, for everyday use. Correct moisturizing is the basis for beautiful skin, whatever the age or skin type. If the skin is dehydrated, it gets dull, lackluster, uncomfortable and vulnerable to external stress because the skin barrier (superficial layer of the skin) is altered. In this way, moisturization is the first ""beauty ritual"" to be performed and should be a daily reflex. Skin drying out concerns men and women, young and mature skin, and happens in both dry and wet weather. Our METEO LOGIC ® Organic certified care range is for all skin types, all ages, every day, all year. 

Another concern that affects all skin types : the constant stress that our environment generates, oxidative stress (caused  by UV, pollution, etc) and changing conditions (heat, cold, dry air, sudden temperature variations). To protect the skin against these attacks, METEO LOGIC® Organic certified care has active ingredients that stimulate our natural defenses and a powerful antioxidant that, by neutralizing free radicals, slows skin ageing. 

In this way, METEO LOGIC ® Organic certified range is both a good moisturizer and a protective shield, an essential for everyone's routine to preserve beautiful and healthy skin. 


When should i use the serum ?

The METEO LOGIC® Organic certified moisturizing Serum is an activity booster, it prepares the skin for the application of other care products and promotes the penetration of water-soluble active ingredients. It is recommended for use in the morning and in the evening before applying day (fluid or cream) and night skincare products to maximize the benefits of METEO LOGIC® Organic certified range’s active ingredients.

As long as our Organic cosmetics are unopened, they remain stable for at least 30 months from the date of production. 

Our Organic cosmetic products have no expiry date before opening, as required by the cosmetic regulations. 

All our Organic cosmetic products have a batch number corresponding to the date of production. 

Only moisturizing self-tanning Lotion has a batch number and an expiry date (DLUO) corresponding to 18 months after the production date.  

Once opened, our organic cosmetic products are subject to an expiry date after opening (OAP). This is written on the pack, in the ""cream jar"" symbol.


What is the difference between moisturizing face fluid and moisturizing face cream? 

The texture of the moisturising face fluid is lighter than the texture of the moisturising face cream, which is richer in nourishing and protective active ingredients. The moisturising face cream contains, for example, shea butter, squalane and essential fatty acids that will better protect the skin in case of stress due to cold or dry weather. The moisturising face fluid contains, among other things, an active ingredient that, on the contrary, will absorb excess sebum that may be the result of hot or humid weather.


Can I put my lotion in the fridge to keep it fresh for longer ?

It is hard to say if that will increase the shelf life of the product. 

In any case, keeping products in the fridge is a good tip for some like our After-Sun and our Eye Contour, to make putting them on feel even more refreshing and to stimulate micro-circulation.

Children
WHY IS THE CHILD SUNSCREEN ONLY RECOMMENDED FOR 6 MONTHS AND UP ? 

We have carried out specific tests on ALGA MARIS® SPF50+ Organic Baby & Child Cream in order to be able to recommend it for babies and children: hypoallergenicity test and use tests. Subsequently, each product put on the market is evaluated by an independent toxicological expert. As a result, the expert has established that ALGA MARIS® SPF50+ Organic Baby & Child Cream is suitable for children over 6 months. 

We have formulated this children's sun product by rigorously selecting natural ingredients while minimising their number in the formula. We attach great importance to the quality and tolerance of the ingredients used. This organic sun product contains neither perfume nor allergens.

However, we would like to remind you that it is not recommended to expose babies and young children under 3 years of age to direct sunlight.


Why does children's skin need a special cream?

Children's skin has a structure and functions very similar to that of adults, but some functions are immature. The pH of his skin is higher and its protective function less important; the surface / weight ratio is almost three times higher than in adults: the risk of toxicity is therefore higher because the penetration is three times greater.

Some functional anatomical characteristics are different: skin hyper plasticity with rich dermal vascular network, less thick horny layer, less functional melanocytes in the first year.

The cream intended for the skin of the child therefore requires a specific formulation because if it is different in its structure, it will also be so in its function. Indeed, this skin is more vulnerable and less well fulfills its natural protective function.


Until what age can we use baby & child sunscreen?

For sun protection products, we can recommend the use of Organic Baby & Child Sunscreen SPF50 + up to the age of 10-12 years, the time of puberty, when the skin changes and becomes less fragile.
