“Approximately 14,000 tons of chemical sunscreen make it into the world’s oceans each year”. Many if not most contain specific toxic ingredients to include oxybenzome— proven extremely harmful to both human beings, and to coral reefs.
New York-based Soleil Toujours is one of the few sunscreens in existence which does not contain oxybenzone or other “world wellness” inhibitors. Instead, this glamorous mineral-based line of suncare products is the only sunscreen to have been declared “coral friendly” and “reef friendly” by environmental watchdog group WiseOceans.
Pacific Northwest-based Being offers vegan “responsible” bath and body products. Oceans friendly and cleanly indulgent. Being also offers Seas-inspired bath salts, appropriately named “Float”, “Drift”, and “Still”. No synthetic fragrances or dyes, no sodium lauryl sulfate, no preservatives, and GMO-free. Packaged in reusable glass containers, Being even ships in recycled packaging - which includes shredded email!
