The ocean is our office

It might be easy to imagine us here at Everyday California as a scatter-brained group of sunburnt beach bums, but the health and condition of our planet are constantly on our mind. And when we learn about a threat to the ocean, we take it seriously.

A few years ago we realized that one of the biggest threats to our ocean right now is on our own skin, in the sunscreen we wear. We knew if we wanted high quality, chemical-free sunscreen that wouldn’t harm us or the ocean we’d have to make it ourselves. So we jumped right in, and spent the past two years crafting a reef safe suncare formula that’s safe for you and the planet!

“What’s wrong with the sunscreen I already have? I don’t even get in the water!”

Sure, not everyone’s diving into the Pacific with their SPF 100. But even water from our showers, which is treated before running back into the ocean, contains a lot of the chemicals found in harmful sunscreens. Back in 2018 Hawaii passed a bill that bans the sale of sunscreen with harmful chemicals, becoming the first US state to take action against toxic lotions.

If the ban proves to be effective, it’s not unreasonable to assume that other coastal states will follow, especially California. Our Golden State recorded 251 million visitors in recent years (collectively wearing about 40 million gallons of sunscreen), and that number is only expected to increase.

Out with the bad, in with the good

Our goal was to launch our sunscreen as soon as possible so that we could start reversing the damage done to our planet, then COVID hit and production slowed to a halt. We were bummed at first, but we used the extra time to perfect our formula -not only did we take out all the harmful chemicals like Oxybenzone, Octinoxate, Phenoxyethanol, Nano particles and Phenoxyethanol, but we replaced them with all-natural ingredients!

You might be wondering, "What do all these chemicals whose names I can't pronounce even do??"

For starters, they all contribute to coral bleaching - a phenomena that happens when coral expel the algae that live inside their tissues, which provide them with up to 90% of their energy. Without that algae, the coral turns completely white (hence the term "bleached") and dies.

These toxic ingredients are not only known to damage coral and entire marine ecosystems, but humans too!

Because of their small size, nano particles are able to pass through cell membranes in humans (and fish) and make their way into the bloodstream. The potential danger of nano particles making their way into the human body is not very well known, but the existent danger of these particles to marine ecosystems is evident.

Unfortunately there's not much we can do to save coral that's in the process of, or has already been "bleached". But as consumers we can protect ourselves, and take preventative measures for the environment by staying away from harmful chemicals.

Let's keep it simple

We filled our formula with sustainable, reef-safe ingredients that not only block out UVA and UVB rays, but have superior replenishing powers to help your skin retain moisture and prevent damage after a day under the sun!

Sea Kelp and Blue Algae  are both naturally rich in minerals and antioxidants. Blue Algae is a photo-protectant and acts as a natural sunscreen booster while nourishing the skin. This amazing ingredient is the center of our formula, supported by Sea Kelp, which helps skin retain moisture.

Vitamin E  is an antioxidant, making it effective at combating the effects of free radicals and toxins in the environment, while also reducing UV damage to the skin.

Aloe Vera is full of antioxidants, enzymes, and Vitamins A and C which have anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe skin and treat burns.

Jojoba, Sunflower, and Rosemary extracts are natural skin soothers with anti-inflammatory properties that reduce redness and keep skin calm and comfortable, while the vitamins in them help to control the damage done by environmental factors, and repair skin.

Doing good, 1% at a time

We're always looking for new ways to give back, which is why we've been partnered with 1% For the Planet for the past 5 years and have extended that partnership to our line of Reef Safe Sunscreen.

1% For the Planet is a global organization that connects dollars and doers to accelerate smart environmental giving. Every purchase of our Reef Safe Sunscreen not only means that fewer toxic chemicals will enter the ocean, but that a portion of every sale is also donated to an environmental charity. We chose to partner with GreenWave - a nonprofit working to mitigate the harmful effects of climate change via sustainable ocean farming.

The ocean is our office, and we're going to do our part to protect it. Together, we can make sure future generations can enjoy the beach just as much as we do.
