“The sun, I take advantage of it and I protect myself from it”
The philosophy of My Sun market
The sun provides a practically inexhaustible source of energy which can be used both by households and in the context of industrial activities. Sunlight is also the main source of vitamin D which has a direct action on the immune system. On the other hand, overexposure to UVA/UVB rays can be harmful to health.
With global warming and recurrent heat waves, the sun can thus be our friend, but can turn out to be more and more dangerous. It is therefore vital to be able to use it as much as possible as clean energy, but also to know how to protect yourself from it in order to avoid problems in the medium and long term.
Based on this observation, more and more companies are sensitive to this phenomenon and are developing everyday products using the sun as an energy source or products to protect against it.
Our desire is to bring together all of these players on the same market place in order to give them more visibility; to make everyone aware of the benefits and harms of the sun; and to make available a wide range of products (and services) for effective use and protection from the sun.
Concretely, what is My Sun Market?
My Sun Market is the first marketplace committed to sun protection and daily use of the sun while respecting the planet.
Raising awareness about sun protection
Educate women and men, from an early age, on responsible use of the sun, because overexposure to UVA/UVB rays is harmful to health with consequences that can be difficult and the sun capital is not inexhaustible . So we want to develop the reflex of sun protection from childhood, bring together all the players in sun protection and develop this market in France and Europe.
Using the sun as a renewable and inexhaustible energy
Develop the use of solar energy in everyday objects in order to limit the use of fossil resources, because the sun is a practically inexhaustible source of energy that can be used by everyone.
An effort for the planet
We wish, at our level, to contribute to the preservation of the environment, by offering eco-responsible products and by committing ourselves to the association 1% for the planet, and to finance the Wings of the Ocean project which aims to clean up the oceans.
How was My Sun Market born?
"While I was looking for a swimsuit with anti-UV fabric on the internet, I was struck by the richness of the offer, but also by the time I had spent browsing the many The idea of My Sun Market had just germinated: to bring together all the sun protection players on a single specialized market place.
With My Sun Market, my desire is also to raise public awareness of responsible exposure to the sun, as I was able to do with my daughters, because protecting yourself does not mean not enjoying the sun, but avoiding its harmful effects. medium or long term. Protection begins in childhood!
The environmental cause is also very dear to me. With My Sun Market, I have the ambition to be able to contribute in a positive way to the protection of our planet. Promoting the use of environmentally friendly sun creams when bathing in the sea and products using the inexhaustible energy represented by the sun contributes to this responsible approach.
The sun, I can enjoy it and I have to protect myself from it."
