St Barth Solaire
Enjoy the sensation of golden light on your skin while the shadows of palm trees dance over the hot sand. Ligne St Barth has a unique duo that allows you to enjoy the sun without worrying. Our special sun care range comprises dark red tanning oil and the protective sun lotion based on an extract from the seeds of the roucou tree, which stimulates the skin’s melanin production, helping you to achieve a stunning tan.
The Caribbean Indians rubbed crushed seeds of the roucou shrub on their skin to protect themselves from the sun, mosquitoes and sea salt. Today, Ligne St Barth obtains its distinctively red roucou extract using a gentle method which preserves all the active substances. The benefits of this exotic resource form the heart of a unique sun care range.
Sun caresses our body and warms the soul. What a fascinating force! If we respect its power, it will reward us with a beautiful tan. Use a gentle peeling cream regularly to prepare the skin before sunbathing.
Melanin in the skin reacts to the sun’s rays. We perceive this as tanning. Apply a thin layer of tanning oil to your body 20 minutes before sunbathing. As soon as the tanning oil has been absorbed, apply Roucou sun lotion. Start with a high protection factor and reduce it later. Re-apply Roucou sun lotion regularly, such as after swimming. Repeated use does not increase the protection factor!
Sunbathe in the morning or afternoon for the best tan: UV rays are at their most dangerous between noon and 4 p.m. Do not spend too much time in direct sun. Consider how intense the sun’s rays are in your particular location.
Sunbathing makes our skin hot and thirsty. Use aloe vera gel to cool and hydrate, then apply the light body lotion with mango butter. Avocado oil provides the skin with important vitamins and care – for a long-lasting tan.
Aloe vera gel has a refreshing coolness that is perfect on hot summer’s days. It soothes the skin after sunbathing and gives it a moisture boost. Its minty smell is light and invigorating for body and soul.
