What about reef-safe?

Current research into the effects of sunscreen on coral reefs is inconclusive. Therefore, there is no universally accepted standard for what is actually “reef-friendly” or “reef-safe”. We continue to stay up to date with the latest research and will wait for a commercial testing method to confirm what makes a product truly reef safe.
