Reef safe sunscreen


Today’s National Sunscreen day, we’re using this opportunity to clear out what you need to know to protect yourself and our oceans.
Let’s start with the basics:


SPF is used to protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays! These uv rays are present all year round.

An easy way to distinguish the two is UVA(ging) are mostly responsible for premature ageing and UVB(urning) rays play the most significant role producing skin cancers and sunburns.

Make sure your sunscreen is “broad spectrum” — it protects you from UVA and UVB rays.
Daily application of SPF protects your skin from cancer & prevents photoageing up to 80%.
