Safe Sea in Action
“Friend of the Sea certification can be achieved by other sunscreens releasing less than 5% of their chemicals to the water after 80 minutes in the water” -Paolo Bray, founder and director of Friend of the Sea

Wholesaler and Representative for Skin Care Products
At Safe Sea Hawaii and Sting Away Hawaii we are as passionate about the outdoors and the games we all play as you are. Safe Sea products are quality body care supplies and performance products for all your ocean & outdoor activities.
In order to minimize the impact of sunscreens on the marine environment, Israeli company Nidaria Technologies has developed Safe-Sea® sunscreen products line.
Water-resistance tests of Safe-Sea® by AMA Lab New York and Dermatest Australia revealed that 97% of sun protection remains on the skin even after 80 minutes in the water. In vivo testing of fish and anemones behavior in water exposed to Safe-Sea® for 24 hours demonstrated that the sunscreen is safe for aquatic organisms.

Not all sunblocks are friends of the sea. According to both U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and EU regulation, sunscreens marked as “water-resistant” can lose 50% of their sun protection factor after 40 minutes of being in the water.
Recent studies have shown Benzophenone-3 (BP-3; Oxybenzone), an ingredient in sunscreen lotions and personal-care products that protects against the damaging effects of ultraviolet light, contributes to coral bleaching and reefs deformation, as it affects DNA and disrupts corals reproduction and growth. According to these studies, even small doses of Oxybenzone – about a drop in six-and-a-half Olympic swimming pools – damages coral.
Although countries like Hawaii are trying to remedy this environmental disaster by creating a long-term “Coral Bleaching Recovery Plan” to prevent further damage and promote regrowth after specific events, it could be too late.
Friend of the Sea, one of the major international certification scheme for sustainable seafood and aquaculture products, has recently decided to validate Nidaria’s long-term commitment towards environmental sustainability by awarding Safe-Sea® as Friend of the Sea.
