Aspect Sun = Reef Safe Sunscreen:
Aspect Sun sunscreens are reef safe.
It’s no secret that climate change is having a dramatic effect on our oceans and marine life. Rising ocean temperatures and the stress of warm water causes fragile coral reefs to bleach. But in 2016, a study by a team of international scientists found that certain common chemicals in many sunscreen lotions and cosmetics are also highly toxic to juvenile corals and other marine life. Those chemicals are benzophene-3 and octinoxate.
The Pacific nation of Palau became the first country to impose a widespread ban on sunscreen containing those chemicals to protect its vulnerable coral reefs. But other countries and regions have adopted similar legislation. These include the U.S. Virgin Islands, Hawaii, Key West (Florida), Bonaire and Mexico. Quite rightly, our friends across the Tasman Sea have updated the requirements required by the Australian Standards for sunscreen Testing Authority, to ensure sunscreens are defined and labelled as reef safe, allowing consumers to make informed choices.
