Save the Reefs with Australian Gold

April 22nd is known as Earth Day,  a day where we come together to celebrate ways to save our plants, including our reefs… coral reefs, that is! And right now, as the summer is coming closer and closer, we are going to make plans to go vacations on the beach, and explore the ocean.

According the EWG, an estimated 25 to 60 million bottles worth of sunscreen chemicals wash off into coral reef areas each year. About 25 percent of sunscreen applied to the skin is released into the water within 20 minutes of submersion. When we shower, these chemicals wash off our skin and can pollute wastewater that ends up in the ocean as well.

The issue is becoming increasingly more serious. On January 20, 2017, Hawaii state senator Will Espero introduced a bill which would ban sunscreens containing oxybenzone and octinoxate in Hawaii (except under medical prescription) to the state Congress. Espero argues that a ban is important to preserve the state’s tourism industry, because Hawaii relies heavily on tourists attracted by its coral reefs.

What can you do? It’s simple. Get your UVA/UVB protection from products that have “reef safe” claims that do not use the ingredient oxybenzone.

Enter Australian Gold’s New Botanical Sunscreen Mineral Lotions, whose reef-friendly, antioxidant rich formulas are free of Oxybenzone, Parabens, Phthalates, Petrolatum, PABA, SLS, Dyes and Oils. Their non-chemical sunscreen lotions deliver a refreshingly luxurious, powdery-clean feel that is never greasy and always safe for the entire family! Doing your part for Mother Earth has never been so easy!
