MAGWAI Reef-Safe Sunscreen – Love Your Skin and the Ocean

Mother Earth provides us with the best beaches, beautiful coral reefs, crystal clear waters, and delicious sea food we all love and it’s our responsibility to nurture and protect these natural wonders. What could be better than to use a sunscreen that not only protects your skin but also the coral reefs and the ocean as well?

MAGWAI is a Filipino sunscreen brand that promotes love for the ocean and its underwater wonders. They believe that respect must always be present whenever we want to dance with the waves or explore the ocean floor that’s why they have created a product to support their beautiful advocacy. A product made out of love and respect for our country’s enchanting coral reefs, MAGWAI takes the leap in changing the world.

Physical Sunscreen > Chemical Sunscreen

Did you know that a chemical sunscreen has ingredients that bleach corals? Just a drop covers the body of water as wide as an Olympic-sized swimming pool! Can you imagine how we unconsciously destroy our fishy friends’ homes just because of the harmful chemicals being washed off from our skin as we swim?

Here’s a list of the chemicals you need to avoid in choosing a sunscreen:

  • Oxybenzone
  • Benzophenone-3
  • Butylparaben
  • Octinoxate
  • Ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate
  • 4-methylbenzylidene camphor

MAGWAI Reef-Safe Sunscreen SPF 50+ in 100ml is a water & sweat resistant physical sunscreen that contains non-nano Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide as its active ingredients which are natural, safe for the coral reefs, and safe for our skin. Unlike chemical sunscreens which can be absorbed in the skin and can possibly cause irritation, MAGWAI sunscreen forms a barrier on the top layer of our skin that reflects harmful UVA and UVB rays. You’ll notice that it leaves a white film on the skin. This is a protective cast that protects the skin from the sun’s harshness. It has a powdery and icing-like texture and is fragrance-free.  At the end of the day, my skin didn’t feel sticky at all. To get effective results, apply the MAGWAI sunscreen 20 minutes before sun exposure and re-apply after 80 minutes.

Eco-Friendly and Cruelty-Free

MAGWAI sunscreen is 100% cruelty-free because no land and water animals were harmed during the testing procedure. It’s also FDA certified, proven to be safe to our skin.
