Reef Safe Sunscreen: Ocean Safe, Eco Friendly Formula
SolRx Reef Safe Sunscreens: Eco Friendly & Ocean Safe
For those who enjoy leading an aquatic lifestyle, using reef safe sunscreen is one of the best ways to keep it real with the oceanic environment. But beyond protecting the ecosystems of our planet’s precious oceans, reef-friendly sunscreen is also recommended for those who enjoy any body of water, including inland lakes, rivers, and hot springs, if you’re into that sort of thing.
SolRx has pioneered the development of a reef safe sunscreen formula that protects both you and the marine environment. Unlike most sunscreens that wear-off with prolonged water exposure, scientifically, it is impossible for SolRx sunscreen to deposit on the coral reef if it is on the skin. This is evidence is borne by the SPF rating remaining constant throughout rigorous testing.
What Makes SolRx a Reef-friendly Sunscreen?
There is a undeniable proof why SolRx is recognized as one of the most reef-friendly sunscreen brands on the market. SolRx sunscreens are infused with a proprietary water-resistance formula called WATERBLOCK®. To test just how effective the WATERBLOCK® system was, SolRx teamed-up with AMA Testing Labs to develop a test that would underscore the formula’s performance. The test measured our ocean friendly sunscreen’s SPF rating after 8 hours in the water, and thus how much of the product wears-off over time.
The results surpassed all expectations, even those of AMA Labs. The SPF 30 sunscreen from SolRx rated SPF 35.83 after 8 hours in the water! So if you need one of the best reef safe sunscreen products, then you can’t go wrong with SolRx. Our line of reef-friendly sunscreens provide optimal, broad spectrum protection under the harshest conditions.
Trust the Best Reef Safe Sunscreen on the Market
Around 14,000 tons of sunscreen lotion end up in coral reefs around the world each year. Chemicals inside these non reef-friendly sunscreens damage the health of coral, harm developing coral, and “bleach” them by leaching corals of their nutrients. Additionally, certain active chemicals in sunscreen can also disrupt the development of fish and other types of wildlife. These effects can make corals more vulnerable to temperature changes caused by the warming of the earth, exacerbating the problems of climate change.
Even small efforts to reduce chemical pollution in the world’s oceans can make a difference to the survival and recovery of coral reefs. In areas where conservation is critical, the use of SolRx reef-friendly sunscreen can be a good alternative to other mineral sunscreen products that are not 100% reef safe. This is because SolRx eco friendly, reef safe sunscreens have been thoroughly tested for water resistance and sun protection by the industry’s leading provider of SPF waterproof testing. We make sure our products stay on the skin and can only be removed with soap and water.
