Sunscreen containing oxybenzone
With Curacao so close to the Equator, sun protection is essential. But sunscreens made with oxybenzone (including Banana Boat, Coppertone, Neutrogena and many others) are super-harmful to coral reefs.
In fact, a single drop of oxybenzone sunscreen in 3.9 million gallons / 15 million litres of water can cause reef damage.
Our neighbour, Bonaire, has joined Hawaii in approving a ban on sunscreen products containing oxybenzone, committing to be oxybenzone and/or octinoxate-free by January 1st, 2021.
There's no need to wait for the ban - just don't buy or use it.
