Since a lot of people are asking me about recommendations for reef-safe sunscreen lately: I have a few blog posts about this topic on my website. Yes I have a website ;) Link in Bio!
I have a recipe for selfmade sunscreen and also have a recommendation for you if you don't like to make your own sunscreen.:
I love the sunscreen from rawelementsusa ! It is perfect for all kind of water sports because of it's waterproofness. So you can enjoy the ocean (swimming, snorkeling, surfing) without harming corals. (If you like to try it out, use the discount code HAPPY10 to get 10% off your purchase)
When we lived for three months in Mexico, friends have shown me photos of turtles and fishes with tumors/cancer caused by mass tourism and sunscreen! So yes we need to act now, not next summer
In case you didn't know: there is growing body of evidence that oxybenzone and octinoxate have negative effects on numerous aquatic organisms such as corals, fish, mammals, algae. They are endocrine disrupters and can cause infertility, oxidative stress (a series of reactions in cells of organisms that cause them to be more susceptible to developed diseases and cancer). Corals are affected by bleaching, getting bacterial infections and DNA disruption.
