Hawaii Reef-Safe Sunscreens

Hawaii has actually passed a law banning the sale and distribution of sunscreens containing the chemicals oxybenzone and octinoxate, which have been shown to harm coral reefs.

As a result, if you are visiting Hawaii or live in Hawaii, it’s important to choose a reef-safe sunscreen that does not contain these ingredients.

Some examples of reef-safe sunscreens that are compliant with Hawaii’s law include:

Raw Elements SPF 30 Sunscreen

All Good SPF 30 Sport Sunscreen Lotion

Stream2Sea SPF 30 Mineral Sunblock

Thinksport SPF 50+ Sunscreen

Suntegrity Natural Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30

Babo Botanicals Clear Zinc Sunscreen SPF 30

Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen SPF 30+

It’s important to note that there are many other reef-safe sunscreens on the market, so be sure to check the label and look for products that are specifically labeled as “reef-safe,” “reef-friendly,” or “oxybenzone-free.”

Additionally, it’s important to follow the instructions for use and reapplication to ensure maximum protection for your skin and the environment.
