Be careful with the sunscreen you pick, though, because there are a lot of sunscreens out-there that may be more harmful than you’d think. Most sunscreens contain Oxybenzone (in America), chemical and mineral UV filters, and lots of other harmful substances which can be very bad for your skin and the ecosystem of the sea. Luckily, there are brands out-there that care about us and our world! So, we’ve listed our favorite sustainable sunscreens for you.
Caudalie has definitely done its research. After years of investigating they created a sustainable sunscreen that’s great for both your skin and sea life. They banished most harmful controversial filters from its products. Caudalie has made a compromise and their products still contain 4 other filters. Most sunscreens contain 6 to 7 filters. Also the logo “Ocean Protect” guarantees Caudalie’s commitment to protecting the ocean. And before you think they’re being hypocritical and still using plastic packaging, they don’t! All their bottles are made out of plastic of vegetable origin or recyclable plastic.
