SunButter's Reef Safe Sunscreen protects people without compromising the ocean's health.

It is common knowledge that sunlight has harmful UV rays. It is because of this, we’ve been rightly taught that sunscreen is necessary to protect ourselves, especially for those who spend a lot of time outdoors. However, the majority of sunscreen products contain chemicals that are harmful to both marine and freshwater ecosystems.

SunButter's Reef Safe Sunscreen to the rescue!

Proudly made in Australia, our sunscreen uses all-natural ingredients - making it 100% reef safe and vegan! Aside from being reef-friendly, our vegan sunscreen is ideal for those with sensitive skin. We use only the finest plant-based ingredients to give this product its nurturing and protective properties.

SunButter's Guide to Picking The Best Reef Safe and Vegan Sunscreen

What Sunscreen is Reef Friendly?

Reef safe sunscreen must be made up of zero chemicals. The chemicals that go into your everyday sunscreens pollute our oceans and cause damage to the reefs. Our Sunscreen uses zero chemicals, so is safe for reefs.

How do you Know if Sunscreen is Reef Safe?

Many sunscreens will label themselves as reef safe or reef-friendly, yet this term isn’t very well regulated so it doesn’t always mean that the product you will buy is actually reef safe. Rest assured that SunButter is reef safe - we use 100% natural ingredients, meaning no chemicals will be entering the ocean.

What Makes SunButter Sunscreen Safe for Reefs?

We don't use chemical UV filters to block the suns rays. Our broad spectrum protection comes from a mineral, non-nano particle zinc oxide, which is listed in scientific literature as the safest and most non-reactive UV blocker for the environment. Zinc oxide has also been listed as one of the safest, non-toxic UV blockers to use on human skin.

Where Can you Buy Reef Safe Sunscreen in Australia?

You can buy SunButter Reef Safe Sunscreen directly from our site here or you can find us in one of our many stockists.

What is the Best Sunscreen for Australia?

We make SunButter Suncare products locally in Australia using natural local products and ingredients. We have also made our Sunscreen and Surf Zinc products with Australians in mind, providing adequate protection for the Australian Climate. It is for this reason that we believe we create the best sunscreen for Australia! Oh, and for vegans and surfers too!! :)
