HAWAII TO BAN SUNSCREENS WITH ACTIVES OXYBENZONE AND OCTINOXATE

The chemical agents Oxybenzone and Octinoxate are problematic in sunscreens and should be avoided when swimming in the Ocean as they can kill developing coral, induce feminisation in adult male fish and mess with normal development in many fish species, sea urchins, coal and shrimps. If concentrations are high enough the ingredient nasties can interfere with coral DNA, instigate coral bleaching and significantly reduce the life of many ocean and reef dwelling species.

The research group ‘International Coral Reef Initiative’ states while more research is needed to determine the levels of sunscreen actives present in the Oceans and their effect on ocean life – it is a great step forward to simply not use or to ban the use of these products for the avoidance of any doubt.
