What is REEF FRIENDLY*
We believe it’s important to choose the right sunscreen protection so that you can step into the sun with confidence. Bondi Sands Suncare is formulated to be Reef Friendly.
What does “Reef Friendly” mean?
Hawaii currently regulates two chemical ingredients found in sunscreens which are believed to cause coral bleaching—oxybenzone and octinoxate - the absence of which is what we call “Reef Friendly”. It’s important to know that the term “Reef Friendly” is not defined or regulated by the FDA, so when you see these words on Bondi Sands sunscreens, it simply means that our entire Suncare range has been formulated in compliance with Hawaii’s regulations and is free of oxybenzone and octinoxate. We will continue to evolve our product formulations based on guidance from both local and international authorities.
