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
