Passed in 2018, the Hawaii Reef Act aims to protect the marine ecosystem from the harmful effects of certain sunscreen ingredients. The legislation bans the sale and use of sunscreens containing specific chemicals known to cause coral bleaching.

The reasons behind the act are alarming. It's estimated that about 14,000 tons of sunscreen wash into the oceans annually, damaging delicate coral reefs worldwide. Research has shown that chemicals like oxybenzone and octinoxate, found in many commercial sunscreens, can trigger coral bleaching by disrupting the reef's fragile ecosystem. These chemicals harm not only coral but also other marine life like fish and algae.

It's crucial to be aware of the type of sunscreen we use when swimming in the ocean. There are now many sunscreens on the market labeled "reef-friendly" or "reef-safe," using alternative ingredients like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide – just like GLTZN. These ingredients are not only safe for coral but also offer better protection against UV rays.

Therefore, when choosing sunscreen, we should always check the ingredients to ensure they are free of harmful chemicals. By using reef-friendly sunscreens like GLTZN, we contribute to protecting ocean ecosystems and preserving coral reefs, which are essential for biodiversity and the balance of marine environments.
