How does your sun cream appeal to those who partake in action sports?
SeventyOne Percent is born from our passion for surfing 11 years ago.We realized that we needed an extremely efficient sun protection that would not impact life in the oceans, our playground. Therefore we created SeventyOne Percent: 70% of the earth is covered by water, 70% of our body is water and we give back 1% for the planet. Our products are very water resistant, made of 80% to 100% natural ingredients that respect underwater life.
What materials are you using? Any innovations to talk about?
Our approach is based on :
- Clean Beauty ingredients : recognised as good for the skin and the planet and no nasties formulation policy
- Water resistance : by formulating our product without water, it’s a technical and pragmatic way to answer the action sports needs and to avoid sunscreen dilution in the ocean.
- Sustainable Packaging sourcing: made from 55% of PCR (product recycled plastic) and we reduced by 80% our secondary packaging in 2021.
We are proud to announce 2 innovations this year:
- Urban Feel good: Face Fluid all in one:
- Ultra moisturizing and protecting using Hyaluronic Acid Prebiotic
- 85% Natural & Vegan
- Antipollution / blue-light/ SPF30
How do you address sustainability/eco friendliness in your products?
Our brand is born 11 years ago with sustainability at the heart, starting with the name “1% for the planet”. Our products are developed to provide very high sun protection whilst only using clean ingredients, good for the skin and the planet.
We are part of the “1% for the planet” community, investing 1% of our turnover in specific actions. We are partnering with Pure Ocean to help fund research projects to protect and rejuvenate the under-water life. We are also encouraging our community to take action and get out on Ocean day to clean up the beaches.
