How you know if a sunscreen is 100% reef safe
Check your labels. Look at the “active ingredients.” As consumers, you have to arm yourselves with the knowledge to set a standard for reef safe. Here is AMAVARA’s standard: Reef safe can ONLY be achieved if non-nano zinc oxide is the ONLY active ingredient. An unfortunate marketing ploy is to showcase zinc oxide on the front product, but when flipped over, you’ll see zinc oxide combined with chemical or other marine toxic ingredients on the back. If you see a list of ingredients full of chemicals you can’t pronounce, it’s most likely bad for you and the environment. The simpler the formula, the better, and it doesn’t get more simple than just one active ingredient.
From the top of the world to the bottom of the oceans, Amavara has formulated a single sunscreen that will protect you — no matter your walk of life.
"Amavara is by far my new favorite sunscreen. I always use natural, reef friendly products, but they aren't always the best on the skin. Amavara goes on smooth and silky and dries perfectly, so it doesn't wipe off or feel greasy. I am so glad to have found it! And yes, I am ready to re-order and stock up so I don't ever run out."

"I ordered this as a stocking stuffer for my husband who surfs on a regular basis and he raves about it still! He loves the ecological factor and said this is actually the best sunscreen he's used - the application is smooth, easy to rub in, doesn't feel sticky or stay white on his face."

"We wear a LOT of sunscreen and I am super picky. This sunscreen is by far my favorite to date. It is super light and does not leave your face feeling greasy at all. The color of the tinted is really beautiful. I will be living in this stuff and feel good knowing it's not harming me, my kids, or our ocean."
