Vacation Inc. Sunscreen

Brands

Growing up in Arizona and spending every summer in the pool I was well aware of the importance of sunscreen. But it wasn’t until I moved to Hawaii that I learned the importance of reef safe sunscreen. Many of the sunscreens I grew up using have harmful chemicals that shouldn’t be used in the ocean as they can cause damage to the reefs and overall health of our oceans.
