Tropical Seas, Inc. Introduces HI-TECH Transparent Non-Nano Mineral Based Sunscreen



Tropical Seas recognizes a need in the market place for mineral based sunscreens, but did not want to bring one to market unless it was significantly better for people’s skin and the ocean environment. Scientific data states that Titanium dioxide and Zinc oxide are both ocean pollutants that create hydrogen peroxide in warm sea water, thus harming all types of sea life, both plant and animal based. Watch Tropical Sea’s sedimentation video to see how normal mineral based sunscreens react in sea water.

Beware the TUBE claiming to be Biodegradable & Chemical Free. Chemicals are essential to modern life and whether you acknowledge it or not everything in our lives is chemical based; yes, even mineral based sunscreens. Yes, some are more natural than others, but if you look at the chemical analysis of say a blueberry or even a banana you will find that they have naturally occurring chemicals in them.

Chemistry brings exciting new technologies that can help make existing products even better, and safer than existing technology. So how can there be a balance for the need for technological innovation in sunscreens with the need to protect human health along with the health of the environment?

Out of the box thinking at Tropical Seas has resulted in new technology where they have created Land SharkÔ, a transparent non-nano particle zinc/titanium mineral based SPF 30 polymeric sunscreen that applies virtually transparent. With outside the box innovation Tropical Seas have also added iron oxide and mica for a Sun-Kissed, flesh tone version that leaves just a hint of bronze to your skin. View how easily Land Shark rubs into skin here. *Bonus: Land Shark contains O2 Renew Anti-Aging Technology.

By utilizing naturally occurring quartz sand (silica), which is readily available and processed into products, Tropical Seas formulated around a custom non-nano zinc and titanium blend to entrap the mineral sunscreen molecules in the silicone, which allows a natural waterproofing. Only 2.38% of Land Shark comes off your skin after 80 minutes in the water as opposed to 25% of most other brands. Watch Tropical Seas’ Land Shark video to view how Land Shark never comes off into the water, even with extreme movement, then compare that to Tropical Seas’ sedimentation video of standard formulas above. Tropical Seas products stay on your skin – Not in the Ocean.

“When a business dedicates itself to innovative sustainable Research & Development, it is actually enhancing its competitiveness for the future! Tropical Seas, Inc. leads where others follow.”, stated CEO, Dan Knorr.

Tropical Seas / Reef Safe invites you to check out its array of Sun protection products, Land Shark Mineral Based Formulas, Reef Safe Oxybenzone Free Formulas, “Original” Formulas, Eco-Spray Formulas, and Broad Spectrum Formulas.

No matter what your sunscreen formula preference Tropical Seas has you covered.
