100% natural physical sunscreen
Douce Mousse MD sunscreen is a physical (or organic) protection and remains on the surface of the skin unlike protections using chemical filters that penetrate the epidermis. Several people have already mistakenly believed that they had had a reaction to the sun, when their reaction was rather due to their sunscreen containing chemical filters. Moreover, most of these lotions are very polluting for the environment.
List of ingredients that we do not use found in most chemical filters: Oxybenzone, Octisalate, Octinoxate, Avobenzone, (Parsol), Octyl Methoxycinnamate, PABA, Benzophenone, 2-Ethylhexyl-4-Dimethylaminobenzoic acid…
Other ingredients that we do not use and which may be found this time in physical filters: Polysorbate 20, Perfume or synthetic fragrance, PEG, Paraben, Phenoxyethalnol, Titanium dioxide…
Natural and organic ingredients
All of the ingredients in Douce Mousse MD sunscreen meet the most stringent standards for natural and organic formulation. (pesticide-free, renewable and biodegradable) Key Ingredients: Organic Jojoba Oil: One of the favorite ingredients of the Aztec peoples, jojoba oil is hydrating and humectant and suitable for even the most sensitive skin. Organic shea butter: Used in Africa for millennia, this ingredient is very moisturizing in addition to softening the skin. Organic sunflower oil from Quebec: Rich in vitamin E, very moisturizing and softening. Buriti oil: Directly from the Amazon rainforest of Brazil, very rich in carotenoids, antioxidant and photoprotector. Prevents sun damage and gives a nice beige-orange color to our sun lotion. Zinc oxide: Very effective natural ingredient to protect from the sun. Becomes transparent on application when added in a quality formulation.
Almost all suntan lotions that use chemical filters are absorbed by our children's skin. On the other hand, even natural ingredients such as titanium dioxide and zinc oxide can be composed of nanoparticles, which are too fine to remain on the surface of the skin. Look for products with the mention “no nanoparticles”.
High Protection with SPF 30+
An SPF of 30 is an excellent choice and sufficient for sun protection. Our sunscreen displays 30+ because the results obtained by an independent certified laboratory were higher than an SPF of 30. What is SPF or SPF? The protection index is the SPF (Sun Protection Factor) or SPF in English (Sun Protection Factor). This index mainly measures the duration of your sun protection following application. We multiply the SPF by 10 min which is equivalent to 300 minutes, or 5 hours for an SPF of 30. Does your dermatologist recommend an SPF of 75? Tell him that no product will be able to display an SPF greater than 50 according to the new regulations of the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) which has jurisdiction in Canada. An SPF of 75 will not give your child better protection. Many consumers mistakenly believed that an index of 50 protected twice as much as an SPF of 25. The duration alone is a significant factor. In the marketing madness of sunscreen products, some manufacturers take advantage of consumer confusion and offer SPFs of 90 and even 100.
Pleasant formula to apply
A physical sunscreen is applied evenly to the skin without penetrating it. As soon as the screen becomes transparent on the skin, we move on to another region of the body. It must remain on the surface of the epidermis to maximize effectiveness. A physical sunscreen is effective as soon as it is applied, unlike chemical filters which must be applied 20 to 30 minutes before being exposed to the sun.
Becomes transparent upon application: Unlike many formulas using zinc oxide, Douce Mousse MD sunscreen becomes transparent upon application due to the quality of its formulation.
Good viscosity: A good viscosity facilitates application, especially on the forehead of children so that the product does not run into the eyes.
Non-greasy: Yet very hydrating, this sunscreen is non-greasy.
No pronounced smell: A very subtle apricot smell that will please everyone.
Approved by Health Canada

Our sunscreen displays an NPN (Natural Product Number) because it does not contain chemical filters which are assigned a DIN number.
