Neither have I
While vacationing in Hawaii we went to a wildlife preserve called Hanauma Bay. At the marine store they were asking people to trade in their harmful sunscreen for this expensive brand that is lacking oxybenzone and octinoxate.
I went back there again today and I was shocked. The coral was not as beautiful as it was 39 years ago (oops I let the date slip). It was quite sad to see the deterioration.
sent me some helpful information: A 2015 study found that up to 14,000 tons of sunscreen enter the ocean every year, causing harm. “The legislature finds that two chemicals contained in many sunscreens, oxybenzone and octinoxate, have significant harmful impacts on Hawaii’s marine environment and residing ecosystems, including coral reefs that protect Hawaii’s shoreline,” the bill reads. “Oxybenzone and octinoxate cause mortality in developing coral; increase coral bleaching that indicates extreme stress, even at temperatures below 87.8 degrees Fahrenheit; and cause genetic damage to coral and other marine organisms.”
Now I don't know about you but if its not good for the coral and marine life how can it be good for me?
Here is some sunscreen they sell in the marine store.
Notice the price for 6 oz. $15.99 Wow! That is enough to make a Dutch woman crawl into a lava tube!! My goats and I sell our 8 oz. bottle of SPF 25 sunscreen for $11.00 What a bargain and it is all organic and healthy for your skin and the environment.
Here is what we put in our sunscreen: organic goat milk, sweet almond oil, avocado oil, apricot oil, pumpkin seed oil, shea butter, stearic acid, emulsifying wax, essential oils, permaben (vitamin C and E), non-nano zinc oxide. When you put it on it makes your skin a bit white for a few seconds. Those of us who remember sunscreen before Oxybenzone and octinoxate know that this is how all our sunscreen used to look. You don't need much.
