Is your sunscreen safe for your health? Is your sunscreen poisoning the ocean and killing coral reefs? Check out our Reef Safe Organic Sunscreen.
A significant amount (80% or more) of sun care products on the market contain harmful ingredients that have been shown to penetrate the skin and be absorbed by the body. This can be measured in blood, breast milk, and urine samples. They can also cause allergic reactions.
One ingredient in particular (oxybenzone) interacts with human sex and thyroid hormones, disrupting our hormone system. It acts like estrogen in the body, alters sperm productions in animals and is associated with endometriosis in women!
Oxybenzone (Benzophenone-3) is also one of the most harmful chemicals for our coral reefs and coral fishes. Every year between 6000 and 14000 tons of sunscreen gets washed off into our oceans and onto our reefs, accelerating the bleaching process of the corals.
Protect your body while preserving the delicate balance of our ecosystems with our organic ingredient and mineral based sunscreen butter. It contains only the essential ingredients to protect and moisturize your skin – nothing more.
Applying mineral based sunscreen might be different to what you are used to – it is thicker and whiter, which is a good thing because you know the zinc is non-nano particles. A little goes a long way. But, remember to reapply often! Every 90 minutes or less if you’ve been swimming and sweating.
