Ask any redhead, who only has SPF 15 with them at the beach, if all sunscreens are created the same. We all know that they are not. Some are frankly better than others. Beyond Coastal takes this one step farther. Not only are they an amazing sunscreen which will tell you straight out that “no sunscreen is water proof” (you really do have to reapply it), they care about what happens to that washed away sunscreen. According to a 2015 study published in “Archives of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology” leading sunscreen ingredients can cause harm and death to coral reefs. Not, just sunscreen is killing the coral, but it is a contributor to its decline. So, beyond coastal stepped in with their Natural sunscreen line. It is based on minerals that are not only healthier for corals and other marine life, it is frankly healthier for you. We are proud to carry products from companies like Beyond Coastal that saw an environmental problem that had a ready fix and just fixed it. So the next time you are heading out to surf, or sail the bay, or just lounge on the beach try Beyond Coastal, we promise that you won’t regret it. Although, as always, redheads should also wear a hat…and probably a wet suit.
