What is Reef Safe Sunscreen

Reef-safe sunscreen is essential for protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays while also helping to preserve coral reefs. Pure Velocity reef-safe sunscreen is made with mineral UV blockers, such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, which sit on top of the skin and create a physical barrier against UV rays. These ingredients are generally considered to be safe for coral reefs, unlike oxybenzone and octinoxate, which can cause coral bleaching and reef destruction.
