Sunscreen: we answer all your FAQS

Our solar range has grown, from stick sunscreens e cannedfor options with the more fluid texture, and even a sunscreen for the hair.

As we've been getting some questions about various products in the sun range, we're going to simplify everything in this post by answering the questions we've been getting the most!

Are all mpl'beauty sunscreens mineral and biodegradable?

Yes! No sunscreen contains chemical filters and all the ingredients used are biodegradablewithout risk to marine ecosystems.

What is zinc non-nano e uncoated?

Non-nano refers to the size of the zinc particles. To improve the stability of cosmetic formulas, nano-particles of zinc are used which, although they have advantages, the effects they may have on the environment and our bodies are still unknown. We have therefore opted to use non-nano zinc, which is just as safe and effective. Uncoated means that the zinc has no coatingbeing less processed and more similar to the mineral in its pure state.

Is mineral protection less effective than protection with chemical filters?

On the contrary, it may even be more effective, since creates a physical barrier that prevents the sun's rays from being absorbed. In addition, acts immediately after application, as it does not need to be absorbed into the skin.

Do sunscreens leave white marks?

Although zinc oxide is off-white and has a pasty texture, we have been able to improve formulas by combining it with natural butters and plant extracts so that it does not leave white marks and is easy to apply without compromising the effectiveness of the protective filter.

Can the protectors be used by children?

O zinc oxide is completely safe for childrens and is, in fact, an ingredient anti-inflammatory ingredient, ideal for sensitive skin.. We have two sunscreens - in stick and in can - formulated specifically for the care of children's skin.

Can they be used on any skin type?

Yes, all our sunscreens are suitable for all skin types, including the most sensitive. In addition to zinc oxide, which contains anti-inflammatory and soothing properties, sunscreens contain other botanical actives that soothe the skin and support its regeneration.

Can people with acne use these sunscreens?

Yes. Zinc oxide is a natural anti-inflammatory and can even have positive effects on acne care. It will not irritate the skin or worsen skin inflammation.

How do I know which sunscreen to use?

We recommend using, at least a sunscreen with SPF30. For people with a very fair complexion or very sensitive skin, we recommend SPF50. As you get darker, you can reduce the SPF if you feel it makes sense.

Do mpl'beauty sunscreens have different textures?

Yes. If you prefer more fluid textures, opt for invisible lotion SPF50 for the body and the Puro Sol Sun Milk SPF30 for the face. If you prefer a cream texturethe tin protectors are the most suitable (SPF35 or SPF50). The sun sticks (SPF30, SPF35 or SPF50), although solid, are very easy to applybecause they melt in contact with the skin temperature and spread easily.

How do I make my sun stick not melt?

Sun sticks are sensitive to temperature, so you shouldn't store them in places that are too hot. Avoid keeping it in the car on very hot days, for example, and when you're at the beach, always leave it in the shade. If you have a cooler bag for storing food, it can be a good place to store it and keep it protected from the sun.

Does hair sunscreen leave my hair greasy?

No. The lightweight texture of this sunscreen means that hair doesn't feel heavy and greasy, but just looks shinier and more moisturized. It creates a protective barrier between the hair and external aggressors.

And can it be used on all hair types?

Yes, it is suitable for all hair types, and especially important for very dry, dehydrated, damaged, frizzy or colored hair.

Does the hair sunscreen work as a thermal protector?

Hair sunscreen contains natural silicone, which creates a protective barrier between hair and external aggressors, such as high temperatures. Therefore, although the use of hot hair dryers and hair straighteners is not recommended, the hair will be less damaged if you use this oil as protection.
