Biological & Physical Sunscreen Balm – SPF 20
Zen Solaire is the world’s first truly organic sunscreen formula. It combines biological and physical filters that provide the skin with the highest concentration of photoprotective plants and the optimal amount of sun reflecting minerals. The deeply nourishing composition effectively protects the skin from UVA and UVB rays.
The comprehensive benefits of biological sun protection are not sufficiently reflected in the current SPF tests. Although the SPF of this formula is slightly lower than in others, the high content of photoprotective plant nutrients provide the skin with numerous antiaging benefits. It boosts the skin’s self defence abilities and cell repair mechanism, while allowing vitamin D synthesis, which is essential for an even skin tone and to counteract hyperpigmentation.
3 ml – 30 ml –100 ml
Zen Solaire only contains cold-pressed beneficial fats and plant extracts that are instantly absorbed by the skin, enabling it to combat free radicals during the entire day. The ideal dose of uncoated minerals stays on the skin surface, scattering and reflecting sun radiation, while allowing the skin to breathe and synthesise vitamin D.
BENEFITS OF ZEN SOLAIRE:
- Provides essential nutrients and potent antioxidants
- Augments skin’s self protection mechanisms
- Increases cellular repair functions of the skin
- Combats free radicals during the entire day
- Prevents cellular irregularities and reduction of skin collagen
- Favours even pigmentation due to vitamin D synthesis
- Acts as both sun protection and after sun treatment
Natural sunscreen without toxins
This organic sunscreen formula is free from chemical filters, nanoparticles as well as skin clogging substances (coated minerals, synthetic fats, chemically modified fats and waxes).
There are different types of sunscreen filters (chemical, physical and biological). Zen Solaire combines the ideal amount of physical sunscreen (minerals) with more than three quarters of biological sunscreen.
The plants used in the Zen Solaire balm contain a significant concentration of biological sun protection, allowing them to filter and neutralise free radicals produced by sun radiation. The skin absorbs the potent plant nutrients into the deeper layers and the minerals remain on the skin surface.
Sun protection, vitamin D synthesis and even skin tone
The vitamin D benefits for the skin are obtained when the skin is able to synthesise vitamin D from UVB rays.
Most sunscreen products unfortunately interfere with vitamin D synthesis due to their composition with chemical filters, high concentration of minerals or the use of skin covering substances (stearate, etc.).
Vitamin D is not only essential for the entire body, but also for the ideal functioning of the skin’s melanocytes (pigments), which are responsible for even pigmentation. Adequate sun consumption in combination with the organic sunscreen formula Zen Solaire becomes a beneficial practice.
Photoprotective organic sunscreen ingredients
Certain vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats and phytochemicals contain photoprotective substances that shield the skin from radiation and sun damage. These bioactive plant components reduce the intensity of erythemas and their protective abilities are heightened by their antioxidant properties.
Plants develop phytochemicals to counteract various types of stress such as ultraviolet irradiation, aggression by pathogens, parasites, and plant predators. By creating whole plant extracts we can provide the skin with these phytochemicals and their powerful protective, antioxidant abilities.
There are thousands of phytochemicals and the most beneficial ones for the skin include: polyphenols (including flavonoides), retinoids, tocopherols, carotenoids, phytosterols, indoles, glucosinolates and many more.

Application of the organic sunscreen balm:
The balm may seem thick at first sight, but once you have warmed it in your hands, it turns liquid and can easily be applied to the skin. Thanks to its ultra-nutritive composition it also acts as an aftersun treatment. You can apply a drop of the makeup cream Perfecting Illumination on top of the sun balm.
Gently massage into the skin on all areas exposed to the sun including the lips. On areas with hyperpigmentation, apply another layer for additional protection. Reapply every 2 hours when exposed to direct sun radiation.
Apply the balm when your skin is exposed to the sun for prolonged periods of time. You can apply Zen Solaire on areas with pigmentation every day. For indoor use and or in the winter months we recommend using Perfecting Illumination or any of our other creams as they provide the skin with progressive biological sun protection against UVA rays.
We recommend developing your own personalised strategy including the organic sunscreen Zen Solaire as well as hats and clothing to assure an effective yet healthy sun protection for your skin all year round.
