Chloë McCardel Swims for a Good Cause: Reef Safe SunCare is named sunscreen of choice for Chloë McCardel

Ormond Beach, FL (June 1, 2013) – With a common passion for preservation of the ocean environment, Chloë McCardel (ultra-marathon swimmer) has selected Reef Safe™ SunCare by Tropical Seas® of Ormond Beach, Florida, to protect both her skin and the ocean in her historic World Record attempt to swim from Cuba to Key West in June 2013. Reef Safe Suncare will be protecting Chloë and her support teams both on land and on the sea (support boat).

Reef Safe is the world’s only scientifically proven biodegradable sunscreen made to shield our skin from harmful ultraviolet rays and protect our oceans. “It makes sense for us to team up with Reef Safe, to not only protect my skin from the harmful effects of the sun, but to also protect our ocean world as well,” says Chloë.

Reef Safe will also be donating 25% of sales from their website orders placed by Chloë’s Fans, to Chloë’s Cancer Society. Just type “Chloe2013” in to the discount code area upon check out to ID your order as part of the donation to this wonderful cause.

“We strongly believe that everybody who enters the ocean should use biodegradable sunscreens in order to preserve and protect our reefs and sea life for future generations. Only Reef Safe meets that standard. We’re excited to have them onboard our team for my swim,” stated Chloë.

“Chloë will make an excellent international Reef Safe Ambassador. Along with being featured as her sunscreen of choice for her swim and for her team, we are sure that Chloë’s success will help spread the word internationally about the benefits of Reef Safe,” said Dan Knorr, CEO and president of Tropical Seas. “This is a great time to get our message of conservation across internationally, and we look forward to helping be a part of Chloë’s successful swim and her fight against cancer.”

All of the Reef Safe Crew wishes success to Chloë in her marathon swim attempt.

Reef Safe by Tropical Seas products are available in resort locations across the U.S. Sunbelt, Hawaii and throughout the Caribbean islands, and online at www.tropicalseas.com.

About Reef Safe SunCare
ReefSafe™ SunCare is manufactured and distributed by Ormond Beach, Florida based Tropical Seas, Inc., and addresses well-documented concerns about the damage done to reefs and marine life by the 4,000 to 6,000 metric tons of toxic sunscreens estimated to wash off swimmers into the oceans every year. Reef Safe sunscreens were subjected to a comprehensive series of independent laboratory tests to support and authenticate the biodegradability of the lotions. The research found that Reef Safe SunCare products biodegrade, on average, less than 90 days in seawater and freshwater. No evidence of toxicity to microorganisms and other sea life was detected. Research also found that Reef Safe’s waterproof formula allows less than three percent of the product to come off in water, which compares favorably to the estimated 25 percent of mass-market brand lotions that come off in water. Two (2) percent of all Tropical Seas & Reef Safe sales in Florida are donated to Mote Marine Laboratory for their Coral Reef Restoration project in the Florida Keys.
