As spring starts giving way to summer, choosing skin care creams becomes necessary. How can we protect ourselves without damaging our ecosystem? Look no further, we have the answer: creams that take care of us while protecting the environment. Alaena and EQ, two French brands makes it possible to achieve a perfect balance between your lifestyle and respect for the environment.
If you didn't know, corals live in harmony with microalgae housed in their tissues. When you enter the water, some UV filters in sunscreens activate viruses that multiply and kill these precious microalgae. Corals whiten and die within 48 hours.
Close to nature, but also aware of the health problems related to the quality of the environment, these brands strive to consider everyone in their entirety without forgetting performance or pleasure. The quality of our skin is a reflection of our balance. This includes a healthy and organic diet, regular sports activity and the use of natural and organic cosmetics.
Alaena and EQ are ECOCERT® certified brands. They have therefore undertaken to select only ingredients that are pure and beneficial to the skin and not harmful to the environment. Packaging is guaranteed to be biodegradable or recyclable and favours the use of glass rather than plastic. The formulas are produced with respect for animals and the environment. Their ingredients are not tested on animals and some formulas are vegan (except for ingredients produced naturally by animals such as milk, honey, etc). All manufacturing processes are rigorously monitored and controlled, from the origin of the ingredients to the shelf.
