So what's the deal with:
REEF SAFE PRODUCTS
“Reef-safe”, “reef-friendly” or “ocean safe” is a commonly used phrase for a product like an SPF 30 sunscreen or after-sun gel that doesn’t contain harmful chemicals and compounds like:
- 4-methylbenzylidene camphor
- Any nanoparticles or “nano-sized” zinc or titanium (if it doesn’t explicitly say “micro-sized” or “non-nano” and it can rub in, it’s probably nano-sized)
- Any form of microplastic, such as “exfoliating beads”
It's important to remember that much of this research is still ongoing and we at Dr.Jimmy's are dedicated to regularly auditing the science behind our formulas and chemistry of our ingredients in order to be a proper steward of our marine ecosystem and planet.
Why Dr.Jimmy Chooses Reef Safe
Because this is the way. The founding team here at Dr.Jimmy's is made up of a Caribbean native and amateur marine biologist, well... enthusiast, needless to say, the gang has got love for their ocean homes and playground. So not only are Dr.Jimmy's products built to be enjoyed in and around the ocean, they're formulated to keep the reef free from harmful chemicals.
"We'd be a bunch of kooks (hypocrits) if we were putting crud into the ocean, " - Dr.Jimmy
