Sunscreen Protection that also Protects Rincon Reefs

When staying at your Rincon Beachfront Vacation Villa Rental consider being kind to the beautiful reefs of Rincon by using 'reef safe' sunscreen.

 

If you were not aware of the damage sunscreen may be having on our Ocean's reefs check out this full article by Justin Worland - How Sunscreen May Be Destroying Coral Reefs.   A few highlights:

  • Somewhere between 4,000 and 6,000 tons of sunscreen enters coral reef areas around the world 
  • Current concentrations of oxybenzone in these coral reef areas pose a significant ecological threat
  • Sunscreens with titanium oxide or zinc oxide have not been found to harm reefs

Fortunately Rincon has locally made "reef safe" sunscreen. You can easily purchase "Simple Screen" at Rincon's The Wok or The Red Door Boutique.  

 

Enjoy your Rincon Vacation!
