Be Sun Safe
Protecting yourself from the sun while you snorkel is important, but so is the ecosystem you’re enjoying. Sadly, compounds in chemical sunscreens contribute to ocean pollution, causing irreparable damage to coral reefs. That’s why Banyan Tree Essentials has developed a new coral reef-safe mineral sunscreen. Grab a tube of Banyan Tree Coconut & Seaweed Mineral Sunscreen before your next beach holiday. essentials.banyantree.com
