Experts Weigh In
A recently-released report indicates that the chemical Oxybenzone, which is used in a significant number of sunscreens worldwide, is putting the coral reefs of the world’s oceans in serious jeopardy.
Now, unless important or integral to a post, we don’t generally bog down our blog with an excess of statistics or mostly unpronounceable scientific or medical terms; we prefer to get our points across in an easily-readable fashion.
So here’s the scoop: this isn’t a hypothesis or some futuristic scientific prediction. Oxybenzone is already having a disastrous effect on the health of our gorgeous coral reefs, with even their very survival at risk.
As regular readers of our Blog, you already know, we unabashedly trumpet the vital importance of using sunscreen to protect yourselves from UV rays and sun skin damage. As such, we’d never advocate abandoning sunscreen or the use of Sundicators UV Wristbands. After all, people are important, too.
So what’s the solution? Why, all-natural sunscreen, of course!
As a two-second Google search will certainly show you, there are numerous varieties of all-natural, effective sunscreens available for you to choose from; many accompanied by a plethora of helpful, informative consumer reviews. Whether scented or unscented; spray-on or lotion, you’re sure to find one that suits your particular needs and tastes. In fact, very likely more than one.
Just reading these words, on this blog, means you already consider the good health of your skin a priority. Further, it illustrates you’re conscientious of how the environment impacts you, and likely how you impact the environment.
With that in mind, please consider making the simple switch to an all-natural sunscreen when you travel to tropical areas, or live near or frequent islands and coastal communities. Using this method of sunscreen in addition to Sundicators UV Wristbands will go a long way toward preserving and protecting the world’s beautiful coral reefs for both ourselves and future generations to enjoy. It’ll also help in allowing for the rejuvenation of those reefs that have not yet been irreparably damaged.
I thank you.
