ACQUA DELL’ELBA SOLAR CARE PRODUCTS: ALL THE SECRETS REVEALED...
Acqua dell’Elba’s solar care products have already generated huge interest only a few days after their launch: sales are skyrocketing in our shops as well as online, while on our social channels we keep receiving requests for detailed information regarding the composition of these products. So, we decided to reveal in this post some of the little secrets we used to create this special line of products, which will help you enjoy a summer with view of the sea in your eyes and the light of the sun in your skin.
ACQUA DELL’ELBA SOLAR CARE PRODUCTS: RESPECT FOR THE SEA
Available in three protection factors 15, 30 and 50, Acqua dell’Elba’s solar care products do not contain parabens, silicones and especially microplastics. Very widespread in the cosmetic industry during past decades, these polythene microspheres have contributed for years to the pollution of our seas, a topic which is very dear to Acqua dell’Elba. So, in anticipation of the legal obligation starting from 2020, in Acqua dell’Elba’s solar care products these polluting agents have been replaced by natural elements, borrowed from the sea.
ACQUA DELL’ELBA’S SOLAR CARE PRODUCTS: SAND AND CORAL DUST
In Acqua dell’Elba’s scrub, for example, the exfoliating action of microplastics has been replaced by microscopic granules of sand and coral dust obtained exclusively from cleansing operations performed on ancient coral, which, if left unattended and free to deposit on the seabed, would choke the budding new formations of this precious treasure of the sea. A further level of care towards the sea, which encapsulates the very essence of our identity.
ACQUA DELL’ELBA SOLAR CARE PRODUCTS: CORALLINE ALGAE
Our solar lotions for the protection of face and body contain molecules extracted from coralline algae, a secret of the sea whose effectiveness in protecting our skin from UV and infrared rays has been thoroughly tested. Indeed, a recent study from the university of Siena has shown that the use of coralline algae increased the percentage of skin cells protected from the action of these rays, from 40% to 80%.
ACQUA DELL’ELBA SOLAR CARE PRODUCTS: PEARL DUST
In the after-sun lotion of Acqua dell’Elba’s solar care range, the presence of pearl dust favours the activation of an anti-aging process which gives the skin a more youthful, toned and luminous aspect. Another precious secret of the sea brought by Acqua dell’Elba to enhance your holidays on the beach.
