With a gentle and biodegradable formula, it is ideal for sensitive skin. Enriched with antioxidants and healing essential oils, this sunscreen provides daily nourishment and is safe for reefs and marine environments. Embrace the power of nature with this all-natural and biodegradable sunscreen, perfect for everyday use.

Why is regular (chemical) sunscreen bad for human health?
The active ingredients in regular chemical sunscreens, such as oxybenzone and avobenzone, have been associated with skin irritation, allergic reactions, and hormonal disruption. These chemicals can penetrate the skin and potentially interfere with the endocrine system, leading to hormonal imbalances. Additionally, some chemical sunscreens generate free radicals when exposed to sunlight, which can cause oxidative damage and premature aging of the skin. Opting for mineral sunscreens with natural ingredients provides a safer alternative for effective sun protection without compromising your well-being.

How is mineral sunscreen better for the environment? 
Unlike regular chemical sunscreens, mineral sunscreens do not contain harmful chemicals like oxybenzone and octinoxate, which have been shown to contribute to coral bleaching and damage marine ecosystems. By opting for natural mineral sunscreen, you can enjoy effective sun protection while minimizing the negative impact on delicate aquatic environments.

Why we love this: Once we tried this, there was no going back to toxic, poison-like regular sunscreen. The cream-like consistency is easy to spread and a little goes a long way. And of course, the plastic-free packaging means less plastic trash ends up in our wonderful oceans!
