      Choose your Sunblock, Save the Corals


      Some sun protection creams are harmful for baby corals.


      An ingredient in some commercially available sun block products called oxybenzone was found to have a toxic effect on baby corals. You may not think it, but up to 6,000 tons of sunscreen find it's way into coral reefs annually. So chemicals in the sun screen you use can have a great impact on the reef's ecosystem.

      Fortunately you can do your part in preserving our reefs. When buying your sun block, choosing one with zinc oxide and other alternative ingredient to oxybenzone can reduce the damage being done to the corals.

      If you love sea life like we do, check the label. Make a mindful choice to protect our precious coral reefs. After all we're all in this together.
