Sun Care

Well Protected

The outdoors lifestyle is fun and healthy, but prolonged exposure to the sun requires special care. Whether sitting at an outdoor café, hiking the mountains, walking in countryside, or simply getting a natural tan on a tropical beach, proper care is essential. LIGNE ST BARTH has developed an extensive suncare range for your skin’s protection. The secret to our formula lies in a plant with exceptional characteristics: Roucou. Roucou, a plant used long ago by the indigenous population to protect against the sun and mosquitoes by coating the body in a mixture containing its ground seeds, is a well-respected natural ingredient. With their high-quality products, LIGNE ST BARTH wants you to have fun in the sun, yet keep well protected.

Roucou Tanning Oil

Roucou Tanning Oil

SPF 6 low protection

Roucou seeds, which grow on a tree bearing fruits that are as red as a blazing sky, were formerly used by Caribbean Indians who coated their bodies with this specific seed for protection against the sun.

Inspired by this ancestral tradition, Roucou Tanning Oil brings a perfect, coppercoloured glow to your face and body, and can also be used to protect your hair. A cocktail of vegetable oils helps leave your skin looking radiant, with a deep golden colour.

Used as sun care, it spreads easily, nourishing your skin and leaving it with a light, protective and silky smooth finish. This scented tanning oil has a dark floral, softly spiced and exotic note – the hallmark of the LIGNE ST BARTH sun care range. The oil primes your face and body for sunbathing, preserves olive-coloured or heavily tanned skin, and can also be used to care for your hair.

Roucou Oil is the legendary cosmetic that sparked the success of LIGNE ST BARTH 30 years ago, building the brand’s outstanding reputation. This oil also complements the properties of other cosmetic treatments in the LIGNE ST BARTH range.

ROUCOU
PROPERTIES & BENEFITS

Native to tropical America, the roucou (Bixa orellana L.) is known as urucum in Brazil, achiote in Bolivia, Ecuador and Nicaragua, and rocouyer elsewhere. It is a shrub with pink flowers and spiky, inedible red fruits that are full of seeds.

Amazonian Indians and natives of the Caribbean islands originally used this plant as an herb or body pigment to protect themselves from the sun or from mosquitoes, hence their nickname, “redskins”.

LIGNE ST BARTH has developed a traditional cold extraction process in order to obtain the maximum benefits from the seeds of its fruit, the roucou. Very rich in betacarotene and vitamin E, natural antioxidants, minerals and trace elements, this original extract is an excellent primer for exposure to the sun as it stimulates the synthesis of melanin. It gives your complexion a wonderfully natural colour and protects it better from aggressive UV rays.

ROUCOU TANNING OIL
PAMPERING TIPS

N.B.:
This haircare oil is suitable for all hair types EXCEPT blond or bleached hair.

The coconut oil contained in the Roucou Tanning Oil solidifies at a temperature below 25 °C. This may cause an opaque deposit to form at the bottom of the bottle.

Put a little colour on your skin and flaunt that holiday look…
As an essential holiday item, the star cosmetic of the LIGNE ST BARTH range creates a healthy-looking tint and prepares your body for the sun by encouraging the production of melanin. Roucou Tanning Oil speeds up tanning and activates the skin’s natural defences when in the sun.

Apply a generous amount of Roucou Tanning Oil SPF6 around twenty minutes before going out in the sun. Reapply frequently throughout the day, especially after swimming, sweating or drying yourself using a towel.

Reputed as a natural antioxidant that traps free radicals, Roucou Tanning Oil helps prevent the skin from ageing, particularly as a result of UV exposure. Its nutritional and protective qualities return elasticity to all skin types, especially dry and/or mature skin, while reinforcing your tan with a copper-coloured, satin glow.

Protect your hair against the elements…
Soaked in this oil, your hair will not only be protected against the aggression of UV rays, but will also exude a warm, waxy fragrance and sparkle in the light.

By nourishing the scalp, Roucou Tanning Oil will protect your hair from the wind, sun, salt in the sea and chlorine in the pool, while restoring shine and vitality back to weakened hair.

Rinse off using Extra Mild Shampoo with Spirulina Algae and Revitalizing Cream Rinse with Cotton Seed Milk Scented Jasmine.

It gives your complexion a wonderfully natural colour and protects it better from aggressive UV rays.

ZINC OXIDE
PROPERTIES & BENEFITS

A mineral sun filter that is extracted directly from natural resources, zinc oxide protects the epidermis by reflecting the sun’s rays. Due to the fact that it is not absorbed by the skin, the chances of an allergic reaction are minimised, which means that the lotions are suitable for all the family. The perfect companion for sensitive skin types, it helps ensure the luxurious consistency of our formulas and guarantees the relevant sun protection factor.

BEESWAX
PROPERTIES & BENEFITS

A natural substance that has been used since Antiquity, beeswax (Cera alba) is secreted by bees to build the typical hexagonal cells of their hive. This structure is where honey is stored and young bees are raised. To extract the honey, the apiarist needs to remove the wax plugs. He obtains the wax by separating it from the residual honey and other impurities by heating it in water. The shelves of the hive that contain the young bees are left intact – only honey from the used shelves is harvested.

Beeswax boasts many therapeutic properties, and is used, for instance, to treat bruising, swelling and burns. A complex blend of fatty acid wax esters and fatty alcohols, free fatty acids and long-chain hydrocarbon compounds, including vitamin A (or retinol), beeswax softens and nourishes the skin, and its film-forming properties help create a protective barrier. It can also be used in products to achieve a thicker consistency.

LIGNE ST BARTH has incorporated this ingredient into its formulas to benefit from the emollient properties of the wax, which are particularly beneficial for dry skin.

BISABOLOL
PROPERTIES & BENEFITS

The natural substance bisabolol is obtained by fractional distillation of the essential oil from the wood of the candeia tree (Vanillosmopsis erythropappa). Bisabolol extracted from this native Brazilian tree, which belongs to the aster family, is less allergenic than that commonly extracted from camomile flower oil.

(L)-alspha bisabolol, a plant-derived ingredient, is mainly used to soothe irritated skin by helping to reduce the feeling of discomfort. It also boasts skin-healing and repairing properties, and is especially recommended for sensitive and damaged skin.

CALENDULA
PROPERTIES & BENEFITS

The calendula flower (Calendula officinalis), has been cultivated for centuries in temperate climates. Also known as the garden marigold, the flowers of this plant open up as the sun rises and close again as the sun sets. The yellow-orange flowers are harvested in the spring, when they have reached maturity.

LIGNE ST BARTH only uses organic calendula flowers to guarantee the quality of the vegetable extract that is derived by macerating the whole, dried flowers. Cold maceration is a gentle procedure that avoids heating the flowers, thereby preserving all their benefits. The oily macerated flowers contain around twenty different carotenoids, including beta-carotene, flavoxanthin, lutein, lycopene, etc., which have an antioxidising and photoprotective effect.

In the dermatological field, calendula extract has been used for centuries for its proven soothing and calming benefits. For instance, it is included in a variety of products to treat irritated skin, burns, chapping, etc. With soothing and softening properties, it particularly leaves sensitive and rough skin feeling soft and elasticated.

(Details about the main characteristics and traditional uses are provided as information here above.)

N.B.:
Make sure that you choose an appropriate sun protection factor in line with your skin phototype, your complexion and the strength of the sun.

It is essential to reapply the sun lotions after bathing or heavy sweating.

ALOE VERA – PROPERTIES & BENEFITS

Belonging to the aloe species, aloe vera or Barbados aloe (Aloe barbadensis) has been known since antiquity, and was used by the Egyptians for its medicinal and cosmetic properties more than 3,000 years ago. Legend even has it that Cleopatra used to add aloe vera juice to her bath. Traditional medicine began using this plant back in the 17th century in many hot regions of the world, including the Caribbean, where it is still widely cultivated today. The spiky, leathery-looking leaves of this oily plant are carefully cut to obtain the transparent pulp, which is known as aloe vera gel or juice.

Very rich in vitamins (A, B, C, E, etc.), trace elements and minerals (such as calcium, phosphorous, potassium, iron, etc.), enzymes (including bradykinin, which relieves swelling and promotes skin healing), sugars (mannose 6-phosphate and acemannan, which moisturizes and softens), glycoproteins and amino acids (phenylalanine, leucine, lysine, etc., which play a role in skin tissue regeneration), polysaccharides, etc., the aloe vera is a substantial mine of virtue. A beauty formula within a formula, this natural resource unravels a multitude of different virtues – soothing, moisturizing, regenerating, purifying, astringent, toning – which can benefit all skin types!

Details about the main characteristics and traditional uses have been provided as information here above.

N.B.: The allantoin within the formula boosts the soothing, softening and regenerative qualities of the aloe vera juice.

In addition, spearmint (Mentha viridis) and peppermint (Mentha piperita) complement and reinforce each other. Although both are stimulating, astringent and refreshing, spearmint is known to be more regenerative, whereas peppermint is proven to be more purifying.

 

ALOE VERA GEL WITH MINT – PAMPERING TIPS

Refresh your face and revitalise your beauty

Use morning and evening as a basic beauty treatment, gently applying a thin layer of Aloe Vera Gel with Mint into your face, around your eyes and over your neckline. Alternatively, apply more generously in a thick layer to moisturize, soothe and protect your skin. Alcohol-free and non-greasy, this gel creates a feeling of instant freshness. Soft and embracing, this fluent green gel is packed with the vivacious virtues of freshly cut mint.

The moisturizing gel soothes heated skin after sunbathing and relieves prickly skin or razor burn, bringing instant relief to all types of skin. The gel releases vitamins and essential trace elements helping the restoring of the epidermis. It revitalizes and beautifies all skin types, especially mature, dull, dry and sensitive skin.

Used as a facial moisturizing serum, it allows day or night cream to be absorbed more effectively. Use as a base before applying the Mango Butter Cream (or Enriched Mango Butter Cream) or the Moisturizing Facial Fluid HOMME.

Apply Avocado Oil after the Aloe Vera Gel with Mint to boost moisturizing performance.

Refresh your body and free your mind

Use a generous amount of Aloe Vera Gel with Mint as an everyday moisturizer or for specific needs – after hair removal, in an air-conditioned environment, on a long-haul flight, after sunbathing or after sport or a sauna. Reapply regularly to combat moisture loss. For an even fresher feeling, simply place the bottle in the fridge prior to using. This beauty treatment pampers mature, unstressed or dilated skin with the virtues of aloe vera juice. It also provides relief for stretched, lifeless, undernourished and heated skin.

Soothe your scalp and feel as though your head is in the clouds 

Use Aloe Vera Gel with Mint as a mask, preferably in the evening, by applying a generous amount to your scalp and hair. Massage in using your fingertips to moisturize a dry scalp. This purifying treatment helps the maintenance of oily hair. As part of your morning beauty ritual, rub a little gel into damp or dry hair to style and protect it, giving dull hair a fresh, tonic boost.

Aloe Vera Gel with Mint

Sun protection made easy!

When selecting a proper sunscreen, keep in mind the intensity of solar radiation where you are staying. You will get the most beautiful tan in the morning and afternoon sun. UV rays are the most dangerous from noon to 4.00 p.m. Apply your sun-care product generously at least 20 minutes before stepping into the sun, and pay particular attention to the parts of your body that do not normally get a lot of exposure. Although the ST BARTH SOLAIRE range of products protects your skin from the sun, sunscreens are not a license to stay in the sun as long as you like. Remember to renew your sun cream several times a day: apply it when you step out of the water, after perspiring abundantly, or after drying yourself off. Tanning is the skin’s natural protection, yet even when tanned, you should continue to protect yourself! Please be particularly careful with children and infants!
