TropicSport Named Official Sunscreen of the World Surf League
TropicSport, a reef-friendly, mineral sunscreen and skin care line, is thrilled to come onboard this year as the official sunscreen of World Surf League North America. With a non-toxic mineral-based product that is meant to protect your skin and the Earth by being safe for you and for the reefs, the brand is excited to be the provider for the globe’s elite surf tour throughout the North American leg of the 2019 tour.
Since the TropicSport’s inception in 2017, its focus has been to avoid the harmful chemicals found in many sunscreens that are toxic to consumers, linking to health complications such as fertility issues, cancer risks and photoallergenicity. Along with implicated health problems, recent studies have also found that the chemicals found in the most popular leading sunscreens have led to coral bleaching. This has resulted in sunscreens containing ingredients such as Oxybenzone and Octinoxate being banned in Hawaii and Florida, with more looking to make the change.
“The brand is excited to spread the word of ‘reef-friendly’ sunscreens, in partnership with the highest stage of competitive surfing on the globe,” says Tony Palmer, TropicSport CEO and Founder. “The World Surf League was an ideal partner for our brand as the product is tailored to the extreme conditions that surfers deal with every day.”
TropicSport is one of the only sunscreens on the market that meets the U.S. FDA 80-minute and Australian 240-minute water resistance tests. This allows outdoor enthusiasts a safe alternative to traditional sun protection that doesn’t destroy the delicate coral reef ecosystems.
