Safe Sea is very water resistant
In order to minimize the impact of sunscreens on the marine environment, Israeli company Nidaria Technologies has developed Safe Sea® sunscreen products line. Water resistance tests of Safe Sea® by AMA Lab New York and Dermatest Australia revealed that 97% of sun protection remains on the skin even after 80 minutes in the water. In vivo testing of fish and anemones behavior in water exposed to Safe Sea® for 24 hours demonstrated that the sunscreen is safe to the aquatic organisms.
“In order to provide total protection, we developed sunscreen formulation with extreme water resistance, which does not leak nor dilutes in water even after prolonged water activities. All Safe Sea ingredients are stored within the formula and do not dilute nor released into the water. The formula provides high skin protection after prolonged swimming and it protects the environment from sunscreen contamination”, explains one of the company’s founder
“Friend of the Sea certification can be achieved by other sunscreens releasing less than 5% of their chemicals to the water after 80 minutes in the water” comments Paolo Bray, founder
Safe Sea® sunscreens can be found at the online shop.
