WoW! Every year, 14,000 tons of sunscreen are washed into the ocean from swimmers, leading to widespread destruction of marine life. 10% of the world’s coral reefs are threatened by bleaching caused by the most commonly used chemical UV filter, Oxybenzone.
To counteract the problem, Suntribe’s sunscreens are scientifically certified to be 100% safe for marine life. We are also proud to partner with Nordic Ocean Watch and Sea Going Green: two organisations dedicated to making sure our oceans thrive and having a positive impact on our planet.

SPF 30 is the new SPF 50. Did you know that the difference in sun protection between SPF 30 and SPF 50 is only 1 percent?
This means that SPF 50 sunscreens do not offer significantly more protection than SPF 30 sunscreens and can mislead people into thinking they are more protected than they actually are. SPF 50 also requires the use of UV filters that are not as safe as Non-Nano Zinc Oxide, the only UV filter we use.
For this reason we never go above SPF 30 and stick to using safe mineral UV-filters!Since a sunscreen’s SPF is only fully effective for two hours after you put it on, it is recommended to re-apply your sunscreen every two hours independent of the sun protection factor on the bottle.
