Why Use A Non-nano Mineral Sun Block Instead of Traditional Chemical Sunscreen?
- Traditional chemical sunscreens use chemicals such as oxybenzone or octinoxate to block the sun’s rays. These chemicals have been linked to coral bleaching and subsequent death. They also create an environment in sea water where viruses can thrive, leading to further potential damage or death in coral reefs.
- Chemicals from traditional chemical sunscreens absorb into your skin and are known skin irritants, allergens, and hormone disruptors in humans.
- Mineral sunscreen uses natural minerals such as zinc oxide or titanium dioxide to provide a physical block to harmful UVA/UVB rays to protect your skin while leaving marine life unharmed.
- Non-nano mineral sunscreen means that the particle size of the minerals (e.g. zinc oxide) is large enough to ensure the coral does not ingest the particles, which can cause damage to the organism.
