In Hawaii, an expectation comes with the sunscreen you use. That expectation is that it is reef-safe. Why? Coral Reef damage is very real and is becoming very problematic in our own United States as well as other nations. Just 1 drop of Oxybenzone can pollute an area the size of 6 Olympic-sized swimming pools. Now lather yourself up in it and add many more ‘lathered’ bodies into the water and it spreads far and fast. This is toxic to marine life. Until I learned this, I had no idea how much damage I was causing using chemical sunscreens. Maui Vera is a reef-safe sunscreen because it is chemical-free.
Chemical-free does not mean free from protection. In fact, it is a much healthier protection and the organic ingredients are a better option for your skin and the planet. The active ingredient in their mineral sunscreen is Zinc Oxide, a mineral that lays superficially on the skin’s surface reflecting, absorbing, and protecting you from UVA & UVB rays.
You can also find Sunburn & After Sun Gel that also works naturally to restore damaged skin back to its healthy, balanced state when you did get too much sun after all. Visit Maui Vera to learn more and stock up as Winter comes to an end.
