Did you know that in some places, such as Palau, Hawaii, the Virgin Islands, Mexico, Aruba or Tuvalu, the use of conventional sun protection has already been prohibited?
Many sun creams on the market are made with benzophenone 3, oxybenzone and octyl-methoxycinnamate, octocrylene, and other chemical filters. These ingredients are undoubtedly harmful to our health, the planet, the environment and, specifically, to the ocean, as they cause coral bleaching and generally pose a risk to any marine ecosystem.
Consequently, in places like the beaches of Hawaii, the import, sale or use of any type of sun protection containing these toxic products is prohibited in order to preserve and protect marine ecosystems
There are many benefits to natural sun protection, especially the use of natural, biodegradable ingredients with no chemical filters, silicones or NANO ingredients. Unlike conventional protection, this type protects from UVA, UVB and IR rays very efficiently and offering maximum protection with no side-effects.
It’s up to us to take care of the ocean! Choose natural sun protection, choose to take care of yourself and the planet.
