Why You Should Choose Reef Safe Sun Cream

Save Our Reefs: Why You Should Choose Reef-Safe Sunscreen

Sunshine, sparkling water, and sandy beaches – summer is a time for fun in the sun. But while we're soaking up the rays, it's important to consider the impact we have on the environment, particularly on our precious coral reefs.

One surprising culprit in coral reef decline? Traditional sunscreens. Many sunscreens contain chemicals like oxybenzone and octinoxate, which have been linked to coral bleaching. This bleaching process weakens and expels the algae that live within coral tissues, leaving them pale and vulnerable to disease.

Healthy coral reefs are vital to our oceans. They provide a habitat for countless marine species, protect coastlines from erosion, and even contribute to the oxygen we breathe. So, what can we do as sun-loving beachgoers?
