Sunscreen with Oxybenzone Dangerous to Corals
We all know what a good idea that was.
Use butter or coconut oil if you wish to fry in the sun.
I do seem to remember some people use to use baby oil and iodine.
Wish the hotel and beaches would advise people to the adverse effects of these types of sunscreens to our visitors and locals alike.
The more aware people are, the better to protect the reefs and corals which are already struggling.
At all the resorts I've been to in Mexico, they only sell "reef safe" sunscreens on site. The premium they charge is absurd, but there are options to protect yourself and the reefs.
my mom was 1 of the ones to use baby oil and iodine
Does anyone have a favorite "reef safe" sunscreen and know a store on STX (or STT for that matter) that carries it? I am going Oxybenzone free.
You have to check around or you can order online.
Think the drug store in Red Hook may have.
