Healthy Sunscreens For YOU & the OCEAN on Vacation!

I get stressed out when shopping for sunscreen. I know so much of it is toxic and our skin is the largest organ we have. I try to avoid putting toxic lotions and sunscreens on my skin. So after a longggggggg weekend of research I fell in love the EWG's Sunscreen database which rates the safety and efficacy of sunscreens and other products with SPF coverage. It will rate the toxicity level of a product from 1-10 and the goal is to be at 1 or as close as possible for your needs. It really helps take the guess work out of what sunscreens are rated based on many factors.

I did a search on this webpage there are 1,222 REEF SAFE Sunscreens so it's a win for you and for the ocean! This makes me very excited.
