Our eco, water-resistant UV filters have been proven to shield the skin, while having a minimal impact on the ocean

Comfort Zone’s R&D laboratory has reformulated its Sun Soul range of sunscreens to ensure it’s at the forefront of effective anti-ageing sun care, while also being sustainable.

Sun Soul products are claimed to boost the skin’s natural defences before, during and after sun exposure, preventing sunburn, ageing and age spots.

With natural ingredients and a formula that combines UVA and UVB filters to provide protection, the filters have also been proven safe for ocean environments.

Sustainable sun care Comfort Zone scientist, Cecilia Ranieri, says consumers are more aware of the need to use sunscreen daily to protect their skin, however, it’s also important to help them to make a responsible choice that doesn’t affect the oceans.

“Recent studies on the impact of skincare products on coral reefs have revealed that sunscreens containing oxybenzone and octinoxate can damage aquatic ecosystems,” she explains.

“For this reason, we’ve reformulated our Sun Soul line to ensure our formulas contain up to 98 per cent biodegradable ingredients that are safe for the aquatic environment.”

Comfort Zone’s R&D team has ensured products are free from oxybenzone, octocrylene and octinoxate, while also being enriched with anti-ageing DNA-defense peptide to support the skin’s self-repair and provide antioxidant protection.

Ranieri says: “UVA rays are present all year round. Even on cloudy days, they can penetrate deep into the skin, causing premature ageing.

“UVB rays are blocked by clouds, however, they can still cause sunburn. Our eco, water-resistant UV filters have been proven to shield the skin, while having a minimal impact on the ocean.

“The use of microcellulosa from spruce trees has also made it possible to replace synthetic texture components, such as acrylates, to ensure a pleasant, fast-absorbing silkening application.”

The same attention to sustainability has been paid to production, which is 100 per cent carbon offset.

Packaging is made using recycled and bio-based plastic from sugar cane, while the entire ‘Made in Italy’ process takes place at the Comfort Zone Village in Parma, the company’s carbon-neutral headquarters, which uses only renewable energy in its operations.

The Sun Soul line is certified plastic neutral by Plastic Bank, a social enterprise that builds recycling ecosystems in underdeveloped communities to fight ocean plastic pollution.

For every product sold, the same amount of plastic is collected from coastal areas in the Philippines, Brazil and Indonesia, with this waste exchanged for secure income and life-improving benefits for the local community.
