  • What is the difference between Chemical and Mineral Sunscreens?
    Both chemical and mineral sunscreens contain UV filters, but they work in different ways. Chemical sunscreens absorb harmful UV rays, whilst mineral sunscreens reflect them. Chemical sunscreens contain active ingredients such as oxybenzone, octocrylene and avobenzone. Mineral sunscreens like ours are made from zinc oxide. Chemical sunscreens can damage waterways and marine life, and aren’t as good for your skin, so we choose to make 100% mineral sunscreens at Clementine de Lalonde.
  • How do the Anti-Aging ingredients work?
    Our anti-aging ingredients are sea buckthorn oil, bisabolol, and green tea extract. Sea buckthorn oil: full of restorative vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fatty acids which promote skin regeneration and renewal. Bisabolol: a natural anti-inflammatory agent that can also reduce redness, puffiness and irritation after sun exposure. Green tea extract: contains lots of antioxidants to fight free radicals, and is anti-microbial. It also brightens and smooths skin.
  • How often should I apply Clementine de Lalonde sunscreen?
    Everyone should wear sunscreen every single day to reap the anti-aging and skin-protecting benefits! If you’re out and about in the sun, you should reapply every 2 hours or after swimming, sweating or towelling off. This is to make sure you haven’t wiped or washed any of the product away, and are still 100% protected against the harsh sun.
  • What SPF are your sunscreens?
    Our sunscreens are all at least SPF50, tested to FDA/TGA requirements.
  • Are your sunscreens certified vegan and organic?
    We are 100% vegan and 100% organic! Certified by Vegecert to be cruelty free and containing no animal products or byproducts and audited 100% Organic by PHARMCHEM Technical Services to NSF/ANSI 305-2016 declaring us completely organic. All of our ingredients are ethically sourced and good for you as well as the planet.
  • What is the shelf life of your sunscreen?
    Clementine de Lalonde sunscreen has been tested to have a shelf life of 2 years. As with all sunscreens though, if the texture or smell changes, discontinue usage.
  • Are your products good for sensitive skin?
    Clementine de Lalonde prides itself on its hypoallergenic formulation, with antioxidant ingredients to soothe and protect sensitive skin. It’s also loaded with zinc oxide (the main ingredient in most nappy rash creams!) to heal and protect your sensitive skin.
  • What is the consistency of like?
    Our brand-new formulation is smooth and silky, thick enough to use as a BB cream but soaks in beautifully to create a primer base for makeup.
  • Why are all of your products tinted?
    We tint our products so that they blend easily into your skin and avoid any white cast. It also means Clementine makes a great base for your makeup!
