The United States Sailing Association (US Sailing) has partnered with skin care brand TropicSport to promote eco-friendly sunscreen.

U.S.-based TropicSport says its reef-friendly mineral sunscreens are made from non-nano zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to shield the skin from the sun’s harmful rays in a formula that doesn’t leave a white glow.  According to the company, it is one of the only sunscreens on the market that meets the U.S. FDA 80-minute and Australian 240-minute water-resistance tests.

Free from oxybenzone, octinoxate, avobenzone and octocrylene – chemicals that some studies have shown are harmful to the body and devastating to coral reefs – the products also come in recyclable containers.

“We are pleased to partner with US Sailing in 2019 and educate the sailing community on the effects of chemical sunscreen use,” said Lisa Palmer, TropicSport founder. “We are here to encourage the community to ‘go blue’ and join in enlightening the public on eliminating harmful materials to protect our athletes, families and environment.”

As part of the partnership, US Sailing members will receive discounted pricing on TropicSport products.

“TropicSport will have a unique opportunity to engage with the participants at several of our US Sailing events in 2019 for a chance to discover their best skin care solutions and purchase on site,” stated Jack Gierhart, CEO of US Sailing.
