Non-nano zinc oxide Non-nano zinc oxide protects against the full UV spectrum, UVA as well as UVB. This 20% concentration works by reflecting UV rays rather than absorbing them. And, it’s highly stable, unlike most chemical sunscreens, which can generate free radicals that cause skin damage.
Green tea/white tea infusion These teas contain catechins and polyphenols, which provide extraordinary antioxidant support. Green tea is also notable for its ability to neutralize UV rays, thus providing extra, and natural, sun protection.
Avocado oil This oil is rich and emollient and a great source for vitamins A, B1 & B2, D and E that are necessary for maintaining skin health. The sterolins found in avocado oil have the capability of relieving damaged skin, in particular damage caused by sun exposure.

Many people are reluctant to use oils because they think oil clogs pores, but in fact oil is the best way to deep cleanse: Oil cleans pores because oil dissolves oil. Our skin thrives on oil. In fact, waxes—not oils, are a major cause of skin congestion.
Applying oils to the skin without the interference of a wax barricade gives your skin the essential fatty acids it needs to stay healthy. These fatty acids, called lipids, are part of the environmental protection barrier that prevents outside elements, among them the sun, wind and pollution, from assaulting the skin and compromising its integrity. Oils also work wonders for restoring elasticity and keeping your skin hydrated. Oils actually penetrate into clogged pores and break up congested matter—because oils dissolve oils.
At Marie Veronique, we prefer oils to lotions because the small lipid particles penetrate past the epidermal barrier to deliver nutrients to deeper layers of the skin. This means that a very high concentration of therapeutic ingredients can reach the dermal layer where skin renewal takes place.
