Did you know that coral reefs are home to a quarter of marine biodiversity. This means that if the coral disappears, 25% of the marine species could disappear. Unfortunately, one of the big threats is some sunscreens that kill young coral and seriously harm adult coral. Do you know why sunscreens are so polluting? We will try to explain it to you in this article.

The composition of sunscreens

Intoxicating the sea

Some blockers are really toxic. They are made with a UV filter chemical called oxybenzone (lso known as BP-3 or benzophenone-3) which is found in 3,500 brands of sunscreen around the world.
This chemical affects corals, since it can interrupt their growth, causes serious deformities, alters their DNA, making them more susceptible to discoloration
