In harmony with nature and the environment

Ultrasun has been awarded with the EcoSun Pass

The following three aspects are necessary to identify and assess an environmentally sound filter system:



How long does a filter remain in our eco-system until it degrades? Does a filter degrade at all?



How toxic is a filter if it gets into the water?
How toxic is a filter if it remains in the soil?



Does a filter accumulate in organisms and is there any suspicion of it having an endocrine disrupting effect?


EcoSun Pass: A new neutral method for assessing UV filters

  • BASF has developed an evaluation system for the currently available UV filters: the BASF EcoSun Pass.
  • If a filter is poorly rated in the following three categories, it scores 0 and is excluded. These ratings are based on the latest scientific findings and are continuously updated:
    • Acute or chronic toxicity in water
    • Bioaccumulation in organisms
    • Endocrine disrupting effect
  • The amount of filter used also has an environmental impact (the more used, the worse the impact).

Ultrasun: Best EcoSun Pass results

  • The dermatological range for sensitive skin scored excellent results in the EcoSun Pass.
