Chemicals in sunscreen have an impact on coral DNA and the coral bleaching effect is enormous. Australians call the affected coral reef: Reef zombies. Coral, in turn, provides accommodation for 25% of all marine life in the ocean. It is good to imagine the consequences of this.

In 2018, some countries passed laws that even ban certain chemical sunscreen filters, including oxybenzone and oxtinoxate. Besides Virgin Islands Palau (West pacific), Mexico and are also Hawaii and south Florida and Bonaire are prohibited these sunscreen ingredients. The impact on nature is great. In Europe there are no laws about this and the use of these filters is allowed.
