Eco-friendly Sunscreen

Caribbean Solutions is a Water Resistant Natural and Biodegradable sunscreen which is both Eco-Safe and Marine Friendly. It is important to protect ourselves, but it is also imprtant to protect marine life and coral reefs.

According to National Geographic Four chemicals commonly used in sunscreen activate a virus that can bleach the coral. "The researchers estimate that 4,000 to 6,000 metric tons of sunscreen wash off swimmers annually in oceans worldwide, and that up to 10 percent of coral reefs are threatened by sunscreen-induced bleaching."
