Why Reef Safe Sunscreen?
If you haven’t heard by now, Hawaii (and Key West, Florida) will be banning the sale of all chemical sunscreens containing oxybenzone and octinoxate, the active ingredient in most sunscreens on the market! The bill, which was passed by state lawmakers in May, will go into effect January 1, 2021.
Recent studies have found these chemicals cause bleaching, deformities, DNA damage and ultimately death in coral when they’re washed off beachgoers or discharged into wastewater treatment plants and deposited into bodies of water.
With this new bill comes the opportunity to educate the general public about the danger of these toxic sunscreens. Many may not know that they have an awesome alternative! The FDA approved ingredient, that is just as effective for us, but not harmful to our reefs, is Non-Nano Zinc Oxide, the white stuff that surfers used to wear in the ’80s!
Times have changed and no one wants to walk around looking like that anymore, so we have developed an awesome formula which gives you sun protection while also nourishing your skin with natural ingredients and never leaving behind the awful white residue! Welcome, Pure Aloha Reef Safe Sunscreen.
