Traditional sunscreens have been under scrutiny for a long time, the damaging effects of some of the ingredients on our marine life and reefs have become common knowledge ( avoid oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate, and octinoxate) and there is also more research about some of the potentially harmful effects to us. Even with this knowledge, it has been difficult to find a viable alternative - for a long time, the mineral/zinc alternatives have been thick white pastes that are difficult to apply and leave a film on the skin. In 2020 we were so happy to find this amazing brand developed in Ibiza. They use certified natural and organic ingredients, including Aloe Vera from Ibiza, and never use fragrances or preservatives, they are vegan and never tested on animals and totally reef-safe.
They only use plastic-free packaging. Sol de Ibiza offers broad-spectrum (UVA & UVB) protection for all the family, using Non-Nano Zinc Oxide as a filter. Since the first day, Sol de Ibiza has pledged 1% of sales to the preservation and restoration of the natural environment. In 2019 and 2020, they decided to give the 1% to Ibiza Preservation, which works to preserve and protect Ibiza and Formentera’s land and sea.
