Frequently asked questions

Talking about sun allergy. Can I use Skinvisibles UV protection without getting a sun allergy?

All our formulas are non-comedogenic and have passed a corresponding dermatological test (SPT: Strip Patch Test). Our Purifist superionized water spray is even hypoallergenic (HRIPT: Human Repeat Insult Patch Test). We always select clean and safe ingredients to prevent any outbreaks.

How do you do this: vegan sun protection?

All our formulas are vegan, we consider this request early on in our product development process. So far we though have not certified our products as in every country there is another vegan association and we would have to go through more than 25 certifications in Europe, alone. We check all raw materials and ingredients of our suppliers in detail.

Sun protection without animal testing? What is your position on animal testing?

Neither us nor our international distribution partners are conducting any animal tests. We see absolutely no sense in such experiments as sun protection products can be tested safely without animal testing.

Reef friendly sun protection: what do I have to pay attention to?

We consciously do NOT use sun protection filters which have been banned in Hawaii as of Jan 1, 2021, or in Palau as of Jan 1, 2020. We create suncreen formulas without Oxybenzone, without Benzophenone-3, without Octinoxate, without Ethylhexyl Methoxicinnamate, without Octocrylene, without 4-MBC and without 4-methyl-benzylidene camphor. We are not using those sunscreen filters as many scientific studies consider them to be problematic also for human beings.
