Screen Your Sunscreen: 3 Organic Sunblocks That Won’t Harm the Corals

By  - 2 years ago

Does your sunscreen harm corals? If you use commercial sunblock, then it most likely does.

Oxybenzone, a chemical that bleaches sea corals and prevents new ones from populating an area, is found in most commercial sunscreens. This is a major conservation crisis we’re talking about, so it’s about time we do something about this. Ladies, it’s time to screen our sunscreen.

We’ve made a list of three locally available organic sunblocks that are good for the skin and the environment. We’ve got a win-win here.

3. Sun Bum

Sun Bum‘s organic sunblock protects your skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays, while enriching it with Vitamin E, an antioxidant that helps to neutralize free radicals, which are the main cause of premature skin aging.
