What's the go with Reef Safe sunscreen?
Common sunscreen ingredients oxybenzone and octinoxate have been linked to coral bleaching. These 2 ingredients are found in countless different sunscreen products including big brands like Banana Boat.
When corals absorb these chemicals, they have a similar reaction as they would if surrounding water temperatures were to get too warm. In addition, the presence of these chemicals in sea water allows viruses to thrive, putting corals at high risk of catching an infection that could lead to bleaching and death.
Areas such as Oahu’s Hanauma Bay off the coast of the Hawaii, sees close to a million tourists each year, making it highly susceptible to sunscreen-induced coral bleaching. In 2015, a nonprofit based out of St. John surveyed a popular beach on the island, estimating that with 2,000 to 5,000 swimmers using the beach daily, over 6,000 pounds of sunscreen would be deposited into the reef annually. Such is the hazard of chemical based sunscreen to the reefs, Hawaii has now banned sunscreens containing these damaging ingredients. (Source https://www.chasingcoral.com)
