Do you know?
UVA/UVB protecting ingredients in sunscreens come in two forms, mineral and chemical filters. The most common sunscreens on the market contain chemical filters. These products typically include a combination of two to six of the following active ingredients: oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate and octinoxate. Mineral sunscreens use zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide. A handful of products combine zinc oxide with chemical filters.
Most common chemical UVA/UVB radiation filters are scientifically proven to harm corals. Scientists have discovered that an estimated 4,000 to 6,000 metric tons of sunscreen rinses off of swimmers every year and, as a result, up to 10 percent of coral reefs are threatened by sunscreen-induced bleaching. Although this is not the worst problem that corals are facing, like the climate change, it is relatively easy to fix.
In addition, these sun filters are hormone-active and disturb our human hormon balance. It could even be found in mother milk.
NEW LAYER Sunscreen relies soly on an innovative combination of UVA/UVB radiation filters which are neither harming corals nor hormon-active. We have scientifically tested all our products and continue to improve them all the time. None of our products induce any bleaching or any other harming effects on corals or human health. Protect yourself without compromises. READY, SET, SUN!
