Did you know that sunscreen can affect life underneath the surface of the sea? Read how you make sure that your sunscreen does no harm.
What many don’t consider is how the products we use affect the sea water we swim in. Though now this ignorance shows in horrific discoveries: the coral reefs around the world suffer from great pollution, and much of it originates from sun care product. Many sun care products contain the suspected endocrine disrupting sun filters Benzophenone-3 and Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate - and recent studies prove that these sun filters change the DNA of the corals and cause endocrine disruption that kills young corals. And not only does these sun filters compromise the wellbeing of the sea and corals – they also potentially put your health at risk.
