There’s a lot of junk in skincare and sunscreen. Junk that is bad for YOU and bad for the environment. Chemicals like Oxybenzone, Avobenzone, Octinoxate, and Octocrylene (read on to see a complete list of chemicals) are prime examples of the junk I am referring to that has been proven to be hazardous to humans.
Furthermore, over 6,000 TONS of skincare products containing these chemicals and others enter coral reefs each year and damage the fragile ocean ecosystem and kill marine life.
Although a lot of brands on the market claim to be reef-safe, this isn’t a government-regulated term, so there’s no actual proof that these sunscreens are safe for the environment., let alone you.
Stream2Sea is one of the only sunscreens I have found that has passed an extensive range of tests proving it is not only safe for the coral reef but safe for humans too. Did I mention they’re based right here in sunny Florida? That’s right, I stumbled upon this reef-safe, mineral sunscreen during a beach cleanup and have been a fan ever since. In fact, I’m a proud member of their Wavemaker program which means I will be using my platform to educate and encourage others to choose safe products.
