Around 30 percent of sunscreens that are utilized on a man’s skin is discharged into nature when the individual enters the water. Indeed, even a solitary drop of a sunscreen containing tricky compound additives and channels, which are available in more than 99 percent of the items accessible available, can cause staining and execute the coral. Most financially accessible sun assurance items are destructive to corals and the impact does not rely on the measurements. Sunscreens actuate viral contamination that are generally idle, which is like the instrument by which herpes shows up on the lips of people (mouth blisters) within the sight of bright (UV) light.
It is an instrument of appearance and vanishing dictated by the mixes present in sunscreens. Happily, there are some sunscreens like reef safe sunscreen that are available on the market! After discovering the impact that sunscreens have had on corals, we developed a sunscreen that was tested and certified as safe for corals. More recently, a sunscreen containing a new generation of ecological filters has been introduced to the market and the corals treated with this sunscreen were apparently healthier than those in the control tanks.

Why use safe sunscreen for Coral reefs?
From 4,000 to 6,000 metric tons of sunscreen annually enter the oceans through bathers, snorkelers, and divers. It has been discovered that some of the ingredients used in conventional protectors can whiten and kill corals. These beautiful reefs are also home to millions of species so we must make sure to contribute to the damage of sensitive ecosystems. Inside the coral inhabits an alga, called zooxanthellae. This alga provides the coral with food energy and provides those amazing colors that we enjoy so much when we dive.
The chemicals contained in most protectors can cause a virus to the coral, which leads to it expelling the algae that live in them, causing”whitening” and can even die by not receiving energy. The worst part is that when the seaweed is expelled, the virus spreads in the water where it can contaminate the reefs that are in the vicinity.
