You can continue using SWOX in Hawaii!

As lately reported via several media channels, Hawaii is about to be the first state to ban sunscreen sales with certain UV filters.

“Research studies have found that chemicals found in some popular sunscreen products are harmful to ocean ecosystems. And now, after state lawmakers passed a bill on Tuesday, Hawaii is set to become the first state in the US to ban the sale of sunscreens that contain oxybenzone and octinoxate.” CNN

At SWOX, we applaud this move to protect our oceans! There are better and safer UV filters available today to prevent skin cancer. Every company should use the latest technology and scientific knowledge to switch to coral-safe UV filters.

All SWOX products are free of the filters banned by the new law in Hawaii. We constantly review and refine our formulas to provide maximum protection with a minimum impact on mother nature!
