The latest brands to be awarded with The Mark of Positive Living.
Aethic‘s Sôvée sunscreen is the first to be certified as Marine Positive. Some sunfilters used in many sunscreens are quite photounstable and have been found to kill coral. Aethic tested UV filers to select those that would best provide broad spectrum protection from UV rays, remain photostable and fully functioning when exposed to those rays and leave coral and other marine organisms intact.
Wild Horse Clothing‘s ‘Got Wood’ boxer range are made of bamboo fibres, which are stronger and softer than cotton and can absorb three times its weight in water, removing water from the skin so it can evaporate. Bamboo is a sustainable plant, which means that it replenishes itself rapidly and does not require special conditions to exist.
The entire TWELVE collection contains only eco-approved ingredients and is completely free from parabens, sulphates, silicones, petrochemicals and glycols. All formulas are plant based and meet stringent requirements on green chemistry. They are also naturally scented with floral extracts and traces of essentials oils and use only natural emulsifiers.
