Where many other products do not provide adequate protection, Aethic Sôvée has three sun filters to cover off more sunray wavelengths to provide broad-spectrum, extremely photo-stable protection. Having tested individual ingredients and the final formula on coral, mussels and sea urchins we used scientific evidence to be granted world’s only ecocompatible sunscreen patent.

Aethic Sôvée spreads easily, doesn’t sting, absorbs fast and protects well.

Reef Safe Sun Protection with Science-Backed Ingredients

AETHIC achieves broad-spectrum protection through carefully chosen, reef safe ingredients.

Each undergoes rigorous testing to ensure minimal impact on coral and marine life, unlike some common sunscreen ingredients like oxybenzone and octinoxate, which are harmful to coral reefs. Our sunscreen does not contain any harmful chemicals and is free from Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide, making it 100 % reef safe. 

A Closer Look at  Aethic’s SPF 25 reef safe sunscreens’  Benefits:

More Than Just UVB Defense

While SPF 25 primarily focuses on UVB protection, it offers additional benefits:

    • Reduced risk of hyperpigmentation: Sun exposure can trigger uneven skin tone and dark spots. SPF 25 helps mitigate this risk.
    • Protection against immune system suppression: UVB rays can weaken the immune system, making individuals more susceptible to infections. SPF 25 provides a layer of protection.
    • Eye protection: Reflected sunlight can damage the eyes. Using sunscreen around the eyes, including an SPF 25 formula, can offer some protection.

Remember, these benefits are maximized through proper sun protection practices.

Aethic Setting the Standard for Reef Safe, Science-Backed Sun Protection

AETHIC SPF 25 reef safe sunscreen  goes beyond offering sun protection; it prioritizes both your health and the health of our planet. Here’s what sets us apart:

    • Rigorous ingredient testing: Each ingredient undergoes individual and product-level testing to ensure minimal impact on coral and marine life.
    • Biodegradable packaging: We minimize our ecological footprint with fully biodegradable recyclable packaging. Our bottle is made out of sugar cane. 
    • Transparent science: We share our scientific data and testing procedures, fostering trust and accountability.
    • Photostable formula: Our formula maintains its effectiveness over time, ensuring consistent protection.
    • Gentle on skin: Ideal for sensitive skin types, free of harsh chemicals and common irritants.

Choosing AETHIC SPF 25 reef safe sunscreen  is a conscious choice for healthy skin, a healthy planet, and enjoying the outdoors responsibly.

Surprisingly, some organic or natural ingredients can harm your skin and also severely damage marine life. Biodegradable is meaningless as things may degrade and still do harm.

We tested a range of sunscreen ingredients and first identified those that would give your skin broad-spectrum and photo-stable protection. Meaning that they would protect you from the most harmful rays and also work better for longer.

Working with one of the world’s leading marine scientists, we also identified those that would leave delicate and fragile marine organisms intact. Once selected, we made a final product and again tested this in its entirety. It passed. This body of scientific work was used to make a patent application. Once this was independently peer-verified it was passed resulting in Sôvée having world’s only patented eco-compatible formula.

Shield your skin and the ocean with AETHIC SPF 25 Reef Safe Sunscreen.

The Science of Sun Protection: UVA vs. UVB & SPF Explained

Sunlight comprises various wavelengths, including UVA and UVB rays. Both penetrate the skin, causing damage:

    • UVA rays: Deeper penetration, linked to premature aging, wrinkles, and certain skin cancers.
    • UVB rays: Primarily responsible for sunburn, also contribute to skin cancer development.

Sun Protection Factor (SPF) measures a sunscreen’s ability to block UVB rays. An SPF 25 sunscreen allows approximately 4% of UVB rays to reach your skin, compared to 3% for SPF 30 and 2% for SPF 50+. While higher SPFs offer more protection, SPF 25 provides significant UVB defense for various scenarios:

    • Limited sun exposure: Spending brief periods outdoors, like walking to work or running errands, may be adequately protected with SPF 25.
    • Sensitive skin: Individuals with sensitive skin may experience irritation from higher SPF formulas, making SPF 25 a suitable alternative.
    • Maintaining a tan: While not endorsed for maximizing sun exposure, SPF 25 offers some UVB protection while allowing for gradual tanning.

However, remember:

    • No sunscreen blocks 100% of UV rays. Sun protection should be layered with shade, protective clothing, and wide-brimmed hats, especially during peak sun hours (10 AM to 4 PM).
    • Reapplication is crucial. Sweat, water, and towel drying can reduce sunscreen effectiveness. Reapply every 2 hours, or more often if swimming or sweating heavily.

Beyond UVB: Unveiling the Importance of Broad-Spectrum Protection

While SPF focuses on UVB protection, UVA rays pose significant long-term risks. AETHIC SPF 25+ goes beyond SPF by being broad-spectrum, meaning it shields against both UVA and UVB rays. This comprehensive protection helps:

    • Reduce premature aging: UVA rays contribute to collagen breakdown, leading to wrinkles and loss of skin elasticity. Broad-spectrum protection combats these visible signs of aging.
    • Minimize skin cancer risk: Both UVA and UVB rays contribute to skin cancer development. Broad-spectrum protection offers a crucial layer of defense.
      • Eye protection: Reflected sunlight can damage the eyes. Using sunscreen around the eyes, including an SPF 25 formula, can offer some protection.
