Protecting Our Oceans: How Reef Safe Australia Aligns with NOAA Sunscreen Guidelines

At Reef Safe Australia, our commitment to the environment is reflected in every sunscreen we create. We understand that protecting our skin and our planet goes hand in hand. That's why we're proud to share that our formulations are not only effective but also fully compliant with the latest environmental guidelines set by the U.S. Government's National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Why Non-Nano Zinc Oxide Matters

NOAA's latest recommendations highlight non-nano zinc oxide as the preferred active ingredient for sunscreens that are safe for coral reefs. This recommendation stems from extensive research indicating that non-nano zinc oxide is less likely to be harmful to marine life compared to other commonly used UV filters. Unlike its nano counterparts and other chemical ingredients, non-nano zinc oxide particles are larger, which prevents them from being ingested by coral and other marine organisms. This significantly reduces the risk of toxicity to our delicate marine ecosystems.

Reef Safe Australia's Commitment

At Reef Safe Australia, every product in our line is formulated with non-nano zinc oxide. We ensure that our sunscreens provide maximum protection for your skin without compromising the health of our oceans. By choosing non-nano zinc oxide, we minimize our environmental impact while following the latest scientific recommendations for reef safety. Our products are rigorously tested to ensure they meet the highest standards of safety and efficacy, both for you and for the environment.

The Science Behind Our Sunscreens

Staying updated with the latest scientific findings is a cornerstone of our product development process. By adhering to NOAA’s guidelines, we align our products with the most current environmental science, ensuring that our sunscreens are truly reef-safe. This commitment extends beyond just the ingredients; it encompasses our entire manufacturing process, from sourcing to packaging.
