Most sunscreens contain chemical filters. When applied on skin, these filters are spread in the water and are highly polluting for the aquatic environment, even at low concentration.
When exposed to them, coral reefs turn white and die within 48 hours.
EQ IS COMMITTED TO selecting pure ingredients that are good for skin and the environment. Their range's formulas are certified by ECOCERT® and COSMEBIO® accredited. The entire production process is supervised and checked, from the origin of the ingredients to the store delivery.
EQ decided to take action before it is too late by creating the first sunscreen certified as non-toxic to coral reefs and the marine environment.
So no GMO produce, no parabens, phenoxyethanol, silicone, PEG, perfumes and synthetic colourants. And of course, no ingredients from animals (except those that they produce naturally: milk, honey...) can be used.
For the sun protection range, the use of mineral (natural) filters must be guaranteed. Only 2 sun filters are of natural mineral origin: TITANIUM DIOXIDE and ZINC OXIDE.
The range of scented candles is handmade in France from organic wax and cotton wick for an unbeatable experience, an ode to travel, a call to evasion.
EQ uses only organic and labeled ingredients. You will find a selection of these ingredients in the articles offered by Klow. We invite you to read our product descriptions for more details.
