"All sunscreens are not alike, and to single out one compound in the ingredients and make a blanket ruling is not proper. We found Reef Safe Sun® Care products caused no visual signs of bleaching, stress or mortality for two key species of Florida corals through our 20-day,independent test"

I love Reef Safe! I used a few of the products on my recent vacation in Hawaii and it was awesome. I had the biodegradable sunscreen spray SPF30, lipbalm w/SPF, lotion, mask defogger and biodegradable shampoo and conditioner with me on this trip.
The snorkeling mask defogger was the best I've ever used. My husband and I were both really happy with all these products and are glad to be using stuff that doesn't harm the oceans or marine life.
I love the Reef Safe products!
I've used Tropical Seas Inc Ormond Beach product’s for years, absolutely love eco-friendly sunscreen as it gives a lovely colour as you apply it. Thanks!
I went on a cruise in the Bahamas for a week and used the sunscreen i bought and it was crazy how well it worked, i was the only one out of eight people that didn’t get sunburnt. it’s very light weight, it’s not stick or tacky, and it’s great for the environment. Highly recommended.
IF you plan to do anything in the water whether it is in a lake, river, stream or ocean these are the most important items to pack to protect our coral and marine life from further damage. ALL sunscreens are NOT created the same and for me and this is the ONLY products that I have found that have the research to back up their claims. I took the sunscreen, leave in hair conditioner, deep moisturizing conditioner, detangling spray, blonde highlighting spray, body lotion, shower gel, swimsuit cleaner, oxybenzone free sunscreen in 45 and 30, and after sun care lotion. I used EVERY single product that I took and would never leave home without them
It is biodegradable sunscreen perfect for keeping the environment safe. It absorbs very nicely without clumping or leaving streaks. We were Holly Hill and did not get a sunburn. The price was right and we would definitely purchase this product again.
