ScubaScreen launches a new range of eco-cosmetics for divers and ocean lovers
Bringing ocean lovers eco-cosmetics that are human-friendly, reef-friendly, and earth-friendly.
With a focus on protecting the environment and saving the oceans, many people forget that the products they use every day also have a profound effect on the planet. The chemicals in shower foam and other cosmetics end up in the ocean, especially for ocean lovers who often go diving and snorkeling. ScubaScreen has introduced products that are reef friendly and free of harmful chemicals.
ScubaScreen is a cosmetics company that caters to ocean lovers, recently launching its new range of eco-cosmetics for divers. ScubaScreen invites people to switch to products that help protect fragile ocean environments for their beach hair care routines and other personal care products. This allows ocean lovers to enjoy their time in the ocean knowing they are not causing reef damage.
According to ScubaScreen, most of the products people use harm corals and marine animals due to their ingredients that contain endocrine disruptors and parabens. These lead to reproductive problems for ocean ecosystems. To remedy this, ScubaScreen dove into the search for a solution and after five years of research and working with formulators, they released products that are safer for humans, reefs and the environment. The launch of their eco-haircare range signaled a change, with growing anticipation for the launch of their eco-sunscreen.
Erica, co-founder and COO of ScubaScreen, notes: “We knew we had to do better to protect not only ourselves, but also the oceans. By formulating amazing products without the use of endocrine disruptors and parabens, we hope to inspire as many people as possible to make the switch and avoid these ingredients in the future.
Making reef-safe products for customers is ScubaScreen’s mission, guided by a commitment to creating cosmetics that don’t compromise function. Hair care products use spearmint and tangerine essential oils to give a delicious mojito scent. The eco-friendly hair care range is specially formulated for use in fresh and salt water. ScubaScreen also includes a cylinder specially designed for scuba diving. “Our unique cylinders contain a spare o-ring that can be used should you ever need one for your scuba cylinder.” ScubaScreen is also working on plastic-free refills which are expected to launch later this year. The company is committed to eliminating all single-use plastic.
In an effort to improve the world in every way possible, ScubaScreen also partners with charities, donating 1% of its revenue to marine charities. The company has established social media platforms to educate its audience on the benefits of using reef-friendly cosmetics and engage people in their environmental conservation efforts.
ScubaScreen is a company created by divers for ocean lovers. Frazer and Erica wanted to develop products that contribute to ocean conservation and ecosystems. The decline of coral reefs was a big concern for the co-founders, as they witnessed it firsthand while they were diving and sailing. They immersed themselves in intensive research, discovered that many cosmetic ingredients were contributing to global environmental decline, and began working on reef-safe products for ocean lovers.
