🐠🐚 🐬How to choose a sunscreen:☀️
🍃When choosing a sunscreen, you have to start by ruling out UV-filtered chemical sunscreens. They contain ingredients such as oxybenzone, oxtinoxate, octisalate, which are toxic for us and for the coral reefs. 🐠 🍃🍃Choose mineral: Replace them with MINERAL sunscreens that contain zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide! Zinc dioxide is considered superior UVA and UVB sun protection, and safer compared to titanium dioxide.
🍃NON-Nano version. It is considered safer since it cannot penetrate into your skin. Finding non-Nano Zinc Oxide is the best choice for your sunscreen.
🍃Skip the spray sunscreen and choose only cream, lotion, or stick sunscreen. Spray sunscreens have been proven to be toxic to the lungs when it is inhaled! 
🍃Then take a look at the other ingredients. Check that they are organic (or at least natural), such as aloe vera, beeswax, sunflower oil, coconut oil, olive oil, shea butter, jojoba oil, and calendula.
✨Now you are ready to choose the best sunscreens: Non-spray, mineral sunscreen, non-nano, zinc dioxide (active ingredient), and with fewer natural and/or organic other ingredients! 
Now you know how to choose a clean, effective, non-toxic, eco-friendly sunblock!
