JOIN US IN OUR COMMITMENT
TO RESPECTING WHAT IS VITAL ON EARTH.

WHY SKIN PROTECT OCEAN RESPECT?

An eco-responsible approach for long-term commitment.
Sun care products are a public health matter and also of environmental concern.
We are therefore committed to taking up this dual challenge:
to offer optimal UVB-UVA protection and minimize our impact on the environment.

A formulation charter to reduce our environmental impact

A voluntary approach to reduce our ecological footprint.

Since 2009, we have researched, quantified and set objectives to better save and preserve our resources.

  • Reduced water consumption (-40%)
  • Reduced CO2 emissions (-700 tons CO2)
  • Reduced electrical consumption (-27%)
  • 100% green electricity
  • Waste recovery > 90%

Group more to pollute less.

Our cosmetovigilance team guarantees post-marketing follow-up for products.

Simple steps that help protect Humankind and the environment

Using simple instructions on our products, brochures and website, we build awareness among consumers about safe sun habits.


In partnership with Eco-Emballages, we inform consumers about the importance of recycling packaging to reduce the environmental impact of waste.

We implement educational and informational actions to help protect Humankind and the environment more and more each day.
