Protecting yourself from the sun is essential, but so is protecting our planet. With the Caudalie Vinosun Ocean Protect SPF50+, you don’t have to compromise on either.

In my opinion, Caudalie’s sun cream has the perfect liquid texture that’s comfortable for everyday use. The formula is skin-caring too, and it creates a beautiful radiance that isn’t greasy or sticky. Read on to find out more…


The Most Important Thing About This Sunscreen Is…

The lightweight formula is designed to not only feel good on your skin, but to also do good for the planet. The sun cream is highly biodegradable and non-toxic on marine algae, so it’s safe to wear in the water. The paraben and silicone-free formula is enriched with antioxidants to protect your skin whilst the formula offers very high UVA & UVB protection.

Caudalie also collects and recycles the same amount of ocean plastic as the brand uses, showing a true commitment towards sustainability.


You Will Love This If…

If you want to wear your suncream and protect the planet, the Caudalie Vinosun Ocean Protect is the one for you. The liquid texture takes seconds to apply, so it’s perfect for busy lifestyles or top-ups whilst outdoors. The high quality formula is also suitable for pregnant women and those who are breastfeeding.


The Formula:

The vegan formula is also enriched with skin-caring antioxidant grape polyphenols to protect the skin against 100% of free radicals. This is paired with 100% natural origins vitamin E to offer extra antioxidant defence and upcycled spruce extract to strengthen the skin’s defence system.

Vinosun Ocean Protect is free from oxybenzone and octinoxate to avoid harm to marine life.


The Texture

The Vinosun Ocean Protect’s texture is thicker than water but still a fluid. The fragrance-free liquid absorbs in seconds and spreads easily.


The Finish

The fast-absorbing sunscreen leaves a luminous glow on your face and neck. It’s not greasy or sticky, through – the shine looks like a natural glow. It is off white in colour and dries to be invisible with no white cast.


How Should You Apply It?

To ensure you apply enough for full protection, draw a line of the Vinosun Ocean Protect sunscreen along the length of two of your fingers, after shaking the bottle well. Massage into your face and neck, avoiding your eyes.


How Often Do You Need To Reapply?

Reapply Caudalie Vinosun Ocean Protect after being in water or after excessive sweating. For maximum protection, it’s recommended you apply factor 50 every 2 hours when in the sun.


What’s Special About The Bottle?

The slim sunshine yellow tube is joyful and perfect to take with you for a day trip or to keep in your wash bag for weekends away – it’s also made from recycled plastic. The thin nozzle applicator makes applying to your fingers or directly onto your skin easy and mess-free.



Caudalie are working to protect marine life and the planet by collecting ocean plastic to recycle as much plastic as they use. The dermatologically-tested formula is vegan and the sun cream is housed in a recycled plastic bottle. Vinosun Ocean Protect is free-from parabens, PEG, silicones and alcohol.
