Here's the catch: those numbers alone don't give the full picture. Factors like skin type, time of day, UV index, environment, play, and our individual differences matter too!
We're all wonderfully unique, and our skin reacts differently to the sun. So, let's remember to consider these factors when choosing SPF and applying sunscreen. Stay informed, embrace your individuality, and keep your skin happy and healthy under the sun!
Mineral vs. Chemical sunscreen?
Mineral (blocks UV rays, healthy for you and the environment):

What ingredients are Reef Safe?
Reef-safe sunscreens are those that don't contain harmful chemicals like oxybenzone, octinoxate and the others listed above. Instead, look for mineral sunscreens that use zinc oxide and titanium dioxide as their active ingredients. These minerals create a protective barrier on your skin, reflecting and scattering those UV rays without posing a threat to our underwater friends.
