YOUR QUESTIONS
OUR EXPERT ANSWERS

What does hypoallergenic mean?

Hypoallergenic simply means that a product (usually a cosmetic) is unlikely to cause allergic reactions. However, many brands lay claim to being hypoallergenic without robust testing protocols. TOLERIANE Ultra is tested on the most sensitive to allergic skin and has proven itself to be truly hypoallergenic.

Which sunscreen is safe for coral reefs?

Both of the primary filters in La Roche-Posay’s ANTHELIOS range, Mexoryl SX and Mexoryl XL, have been extensively tested with regard to marine environments. In ecotoxicology testing, 5 weeks’ exposure to these filters at concentrations higher than those found in sea water neither induced coral bleaching nor had any negative effect on the coral’s symbiotic micro-algae.

What can I do about an allergic reaction rash?

Cool and soothe skin with Thermal Spring Water. Then reinforce your skin’s barrier with a hypoallergenic moisturizer. This will help protect from contact allergens such as pollen or laundry detergents. If allergic reaction rashes are a recurring problem for you, consider making an appointment with an allergist for skin prick testing or patch testing to pinpoint your allergies.
