Reef Safe® Named Official Sun Care of Visit St. Pete/Clearwater
Home to the Guinness World Record for the most consecutive sunny days and America's Best Beaches as named by TripAdvisor...St. Pete was ranked No. 2 beach in the U.S. in 2020 (and No. 16 in the world!) and Clearwater Beach was TripAdvisor's No. 1 beach in the U.S. in 2019, 2018, and 2016...we know all about how to have fun in the sun! But let’s be honest – too much sun can ruin any good vacation. That’s why we’ve partnered with Reef Safe SPF 30+, a Florida-made sun care product that’s scientifically proven biodegradable and non-toxic to sea life. By opting for Reef Safe, you’re not only protecting your skin from harmful UV rays, but you’re also playing a role in protecting our environment.
Surpassing all Food and Drug Administration's standards for sun care products, Reef Safe is Oxybenzone free and completely biodegrades in oceans, lakes and rivers, and is non-toxic to sea life, which is verified by independent ecology laboratories. Every year, an estimated 4,000-6,000 metric tons of sunscreen washes off swimmers into oceans worldwide, polluting the waters with chemicals that can potentially harm a wide variety of marine life. Unlike most sunscreens, less than 3% of Reef Safe comes off the skin during 80 minutes of wearing. The small percentage that comes off biodegrades on average in less than 90 days.
You can pick up your own 1-ounce bottle of Reef Safe SPF 30+ at select events in the St. Pete/Clearwater area or by heading to our visitor center, located at 8200 Bryan Dairy Rd #200, Largo, FL 33777. About Reef Safe
