Reef-safe Sunblock

Shielding Your Skin and the Seas: The Benefits of Reef-Safe Sunblock with Non-Nano Zinc

As we embrace the warmth of the sun, it's crucial to protect our skin and our oceans. In recent years, the spotlight has turned to reef-safe sunblocks, particularly those using non-nano zinc oxide. At "Eat My Face," we're proud to offer a sunblock that not only guards your skin but also respects marine life. Let's dive into why reef-safe sunblock with non-nano zinc is a game-changer for both skin health and environmental protection.

What is Non-Nano Zinc Oxide? Non-nano zinc oxide refers to zinc oxide particles that are larger than 100 nanometers. In sunblock, these particles sit on the skin's surface, scattering and absorbing UVA and UVB rays, providing effective sun protection. The 'non-nano' aspect ensures that these particles are not small enough to be ingested by marine life, reducing the risk to aquatic ecosystems.

Benefits for Your Skin:

  1. Broad-Spectrum Protection: Non-nano zinc oxide offers broad-spectrum protection against both UVA and UVB rays, reducing the risk of sunburn, premature aging, and skin cancer.
  2. Suitable for Sensitive Skin: It's hypoallergenic and less likely to cause skin irritation, making it ideal for all skin types, including sensitive and acne-prone skin.
  3. Moisturizing Properties: Unlike chemical sunscreens, non-nano zinc sunblock often contains moisturizing ingredients that nourish the skin while protecting it.

Benefits for the Environment:

  1. Reef Safety: Chemicals found in traditional sunscreens, like oxybenzone and octinoxate, have been shown to harm coral reefs. Non-nano zinc oxide does not pose this threat, making it a safer choice for marine ecosystems.
  2. Biodegradability: Being a mineral-based compound, non-nano zinc oxide is biodegradable and less disruptive to the ocean's natural balance.
  3. Sustainability: By choosing reef-safe sunblock, consumers contribute to the conservation of marine life and the overall health of our oceans.
