Ultrasun – Sun safe and reef safe?
Protect your skin and the ocean with Ultrasun. Yes that’s right, no need to feel guilty. All Ultrasun products are reef friendly.
Whilst it’s important to protect your skin from the sun on holiday, it’s becoming more and more apparent that sunscreen is having a damaging effect to the ocean environment.
Think the plastic straws you gave up sipping from are bad for our oceans? It’s time to consider the same about the sunscreen you use. Due to this increasing awareness, it’s been found that some sun protection ingredients are having an impact on the environment.
In efforts to reduce ingredients of concern Ultrasun are free from:
- Oxybenzone (Benzophenone-3, BP-3).
- 4- methylbenzylidene camphor (4MBC).
And Ultrasun is also:
- Free from emulsifiers .
- Free from perfumes.
You’ll be happy to know, Ultrasun is now completely reef friendly. So you can feel guilt-free when you’re out in the sun and sea knowing you’re doing our reef’s a few favours.
