The Dangers of Oxybenzone in your Sunscreen

Hawaii Blue Medical Aesthetics is a green med spa. We believe that “Water is Life” and that nature deserves respect, for the good of all of us. Hawaii Blue donates $1 from the sale of every one of our organic facial oils to the Hawaii Wildlife Fund.

Oxybenzone is a drug regulated by the US Food & Drug Administration. It is allowed to be used in sunscreens, moisturizers, and other cosmetic products. According to the U.S. CDC, more than 97% of the U.S. population is contaminated with oxybenzone. Why does this matter? Because oxybenzone has been shown to cause a number of human diseases and hormonal imbalances. And it’s killing our ocean friends.

Oxybenzone is toxic to coral. It causes endocrine disruption, DNA damage and exacerbates coral bleaching. It causes unnatural gender changes in fish. Up to 14,000 tons of oxybenzone is brought into the oceans by people wearing sunscreen. Simply by using sunscreen that doesn’t contain oxybenzone, you are helping save our oceans and protect your own health.
