DID YOU KNOW... A harmful chemical is present in most of the mainstream sunscreen brands...
The toxic chemical is called Oxybenzone - and it is killing our coral reefs.
Oxybenzone creates DNA damage in coral which exacerbates coral bleaching. It leads to the death of coral and ultimately the eco-systems which depend on the reef.
As you probably know, coral reefs are a food source to hundreds-of-millions of people around the world.
They also provide jobs and income to local economies.
Every year, between 4000 and 6000 tons of sunscreen enter coral reef areas.
To give you some idea... toxicity occurs at a concentration of 62 parts per trillion - that’s one drop of water in an olympic pool.
It's predicted that over 90% of our reefs will be dead by 2050.
While sunscreen isn't the only factor contributing to coral bleaching - we feel the responsible thing to do is to use an organic and reef safe sunscreen.
