Santa Rosa Beach, Fla.
Shine On Living and The 30A Company announced the launch of a new line of high-quality sun care products that are friendly to fragile marine eco-systems. Many sunscreens on the market contain oxybenzone and octinoxate, chemicals that harm the environment and destroy marine ecosystems, including coral reefs. The new 30A® line of sun care products features 30A SPF 30 Sunscreen, which is free from these harmful additives.
Instead, the new line uses zinc oxide to protect against UVA and UVB rays. 30A Aftersun & Every Day Moisturizer and 30A Aloe Recovery Gel are also part of the new line of products developed by Shine On Living. The products are made with natural, organically grown ingredients and are sold in recyclable packaging.
Hawaii and Key West were among the first destinations to ban sunscreens which contain the environmentally harmful additives oxybenzone and octinoxate. These substances can harm developing coral, increase coral bleaching, and cause genetic damage to coral and other marine organisms. The state of Florida and many other coastal communities are considering similar legislation.
“We are dedicated to providing quality skin and sun care products, made of natural ingredients that are also friendly to our environment,” said Keith Miller, Co-Owner & Co-Founder of Shine on Living, LLC. “Along with The 30A Company, we share a passion for the beach and preserving our natural environment. Both of our companies are committed to supporting and educating consumers about marine eco-systems and helping to protect them just as we protect our own skin.”
Both Shine On Living and 30A are based in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. The area is famous for its nature preserves, state parks, rare coastal dune lakes, sea turtle nesting grounds, new artificial reefs and the first Underwater Museum of Art (UMA) in North America. The new line of 30A Sun Care products will be available in April through retail outlets, and online at www.shineonliving.com and www.30Agear.com.
