\nThis is probably our most requested product, especially as we get into the summer months. The truth is, we see it quite differently to all our other products. That’s because we take our responsibility extremely seriously when it comes to something as critical as sunblock. \nDid you know that in New Zealand, there is no mandatory standard for labelling? This was highlighted by Consumer New Zealand in a report in November 2017, which showed that nine of twenty tested sunscreens failed their SPF claims, and that natural sunscreens performed worse of all! \nEthique does not take for granted our duty of care with regards to customer safety, and sunscreen is a product that is expensive to test, difficult to develop in solid form, and extremely challenging to control application of under different circumstances (e.g. water, heat, snow).\nWe believe, right now, that the greatest gains that can be made are removing the multitude of plastic bottles from common bathroom products before tackling the much more complex issue of sunscreen packaged in plastic. \nLong term we would love to solve the sunblock challenge, but that will require much more research and development to create a product that we are 100% confident will support global customers under multiple conditions.
