with a holistic approach towards sustainability. In Elmiplant our strong commitment is to respect both your skin but also our planet.
For the first time we introduce an innovative sun series that protects your skin while respecting marine & terrestrial life.
As suncare experts, we create products with advanced suncare technology, providing secure protection.
Our products have a Broad spectrum protection system of SPF30, Infrared (IR)* and Visible Light (VL)*, for effective sun protection from the full spectrum of harmful radiation (UVB+UVA+IR+VL), responsible for premature ageing.
*In-vitro test in HEVL & IRA
Our eco protect line has been developed based on Eco-balanced UV filters technology, achieving environmental ranking, tested under 8 scientific sustainability criteria, respecting marine, terrestrial and human life.
The composition takes care of the ocean ecosystem, does not contain UV filters octinoxate, oxybenzone and octocrylene.
The disintegration of materials by microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, or other biological means.
The intrinsic property of a substance to cause damage to an aquatic organism due to short-term exposure. The present study evaluates the acute aquatic toxicity of the tested substance towards two freshwater microalgae (Raphidocelis subcapitata and Chlorella vulgaris), a microcrustacean (Daphnia magna), and a fish (Oryzias latipes) based on OECD test guidelines
The intrinsic property of a substance to cause damage to an aquatic organism due to long-term exposure.
The accumulation of substances in an organism due to absorption at a rate faster than that at which the substance is lost by catabolism and excretion.
The effects of a substance on terrestrial flora and fauna (terrestrial organisms and terrestrial plants). Species often used in this testing include earthworms, soil micro-organisms, plants and bees.
The damage caused by a substance on sediment-dwelling organisms. Water and sediment toxicity tests with algae, invertebrates and fish are regularly conducted in the laboratory under strictly controlled conditions using standard protocols.
Indications that a substance may disrupt hormone system of organisms.
The logarithm of the partitioning coefficient between a defined octanol-water mixture. Solvent toxicity correlates inversely with this value. (logPow is part of the bioaccumulation assessment)
Our formulas are developed with fewer ingredients versus regular Elmiplant sun products in order to minimize the risk of allergic reactions.
Furthermore, being conscious of animal life, Ecoprotect products are vegan and contain no raw material of animal origin.
Our packaging materials are 100% recyclable.
Our priority is to reduce environmental impact through using 70% recycled tube sleeve and 50% recycled bottle*.
*Excluding tube’s cap and pump.
Moreover, our face cream box features an FSC mix certification, meaning that products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits.
AS LIGHT AS AIR
Light and non-oily textures ensure fast absorption and uniquely soft skin, without leaving white marks.
THE SENSE OF SUMMER
With allergens free fragrance, inspired directly by nature and the heart of summer. Ecoprotect series also travels you to the unique Elmiplant summer experience.
Formulas that stay effective for 40 minutes in the water, keeping your protection in high levels to be able to enjoy carefree your summer moments under the sun.
Ecoprotect products are designed based on the principles of sustainable
development, ie contain ingredients safe for the skin and the environment and responsible packaging,
The new series respects marine, terrestrial and human life as being free of UV filters Octinoxate, Oxybenzone, Octocrylene and Homosalate. The products contain ingredients that minimize allergic reactions, they are dermatologically tested, safe and very well tolerated by the skin.
In addition, we use responsible packaging, from recycled and recyclable materials.
Eco Sun Pass is a methodology that supports the transparent, holistic
assessment of UV filters based on internationally recognized criteria and provides a comprehensive
environmental evaluation of the entire filter system within a sunscreen product. It is the first scientifically
sound and transparent system of its kind. The EcoSun Pass value is based on eight different parameters,
i.e. acute and chronic aquatic toxicity, bioaccumulation and biodegradation.
In short, EcoSun Pass resolves the dilemma of the need for effective sun-care, on the one hand, and optimized environmental protection, on the other. The tool evaluates, provides answers and paves the way for sunscreen products that are good for people AND nature.
Every year 8 million tons of plastic enter our seas.
To protect our planet and contribute to the movement of reducing plastic in the seas and coasts we adopt a holistic Eco mindset by choosing to use responsible packaging made from recycled plastic that can be recycled again after use.
In addition, whereas we use paper we make sure that it is FSC certified. This means that the whole process, from the paper tree to the printed box, is as environmentally friendly as possible. More specifically, the paper comes from sustainable management forests, the printing inks are water based while all production and transportation processes are as environmentally friendly as possible, considering the energy and water consumption they require.
The sunscreen formula does not contain animal-derived ingredients.
