We believe it’s important to choose the right sunscreen protection so that you can step into the sun with confidence.
What does “Reef Friendly” mean?
Hawaii currently regulate two chemical ingredients found in sunscreens – they’re called oxybenzone and octinoxate, what we call “Reef Friendly”. It’s important to know the term “Reef Friendly” has no testing protocol and is not defined or regulated by the FDA, so when you see these words on Bondi Sands sunscreens, it simply means that our sunscreens have been formulated in compliance with these regulations and do not contain these two banned ingredients.
