All about sun protection
Hans Christian Andersen said it so well: “Just living is not enough… One must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower.”
It is precisely our love for the sun and everything that grows freely beneath it – including you, your children and the sea you swim in – that lies at the heart of our aim to produce the best sun protection in the world for both people and the environment.
All Rudolph Care sun products carry the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, which is your guarantee that your sun product is easily degradeable in your body as well as in the environment
To us, sun protection is not just sun protection. Because as well as protecting your skin from the sun’s dangerous UVA and UVB rays, we believe that sun protection has to be able to give you the everyday luxury that is on offer in the rest of the Rudolph Care universe. That is why we have created a range of efficient sun protection which also provides effective care for your skin when you are out in the sun. Nourishing oils from sea buckthorn and wheatgerm and firming and calming extracts from cucumber and apple await you – whether you prefer lotion, oil, cream or cooling aftersun products.
All Rudolph Care sun products carry the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, which is your guarantee that your sun product is easily degradeable in your body as well as in the environment – and that it does not damage or negatively impact anything on its path. It goes without saying that our sun range is also coral-friendly.

Coral friendly sun protection
Not many people think about how the products we apply on a daily basis impact the seas and oceans we swim in all over the world. When you use Rudolph Care sun cream, you can be sure that we have thought about these things for you. All Rudolph Care sun protection products carry the Nordic Swan Ecolabel which ensures that your sun protection does not damage you or the environment around you – including precious coral reefs. The benzophenone-3 and ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate sun filters are suspected of being endocrine disruptors – and more recent studies show that these two sun filters change the DNA of corals and cause hormone disruptions which make young corals die. You will never see these two filters used in our products. This means that you can confidently take your Rudolph Care sun cream with you when you travel and swim in the sea without having to worry.
If you should – against the odds – run short of sun cream on your beach holiday and Rudolph Care is not within easy reach, it is important that you investigate whether benzophenone-3 and ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate appear among the ingredients of the sun product you use instead – on some products they also appear as oxybenzone and octinoxate.
Sun protection with chemical sun filters
At Rudolph Care, we have chosen to use five chemical sun filters to protect your skin in all our sun protection products. These five filters meet EU recommendations for the best UVA and UVB protection and have been approved by the Nordic Swan Ecolabel. When something has been chemically produced, it means that it can be carefully controlled. This makes it possible for us to have 100% knowledge of the content and effect of the finished product.
At Rudolph Care, we are generally of the conviction that good chemistry should be applied where it is of most benefit – and this is the case in our sun range. Chemical filters do not feel greasy or sticky and do not leave white streaks on the skin. They offer effective protection against both UVA and UVB rays by penetrating the upper layers of the skin – in contrast to physical filters that settle as a membrane on top of the skin. The chemical sun filters that protect your skin are:
- Ethylhexyl triazone: chemical UVB filter
- Diethylamino hydroxybenzoyl hexyl benzoate: chemical UVA filter
- Diethylhexyl butamido triazone: chemical UVB filter
- Bis-ethylhexyloxyphenol methoxyphenyl triazine: chemical, oil-soluble UVA filter which has a synergy effect on UVB filters and other UV filters
- Bis-ethylhexyloxyphenol methoxyphenyl triazine: chemical, water-soluble UVA filter which has a synergy effect on UVB filters and other UV filters
