Four years ago our founder, Tony Palmer, set out to create a ground breaking formulation of sunscreen that is mineral based containing Non-Nano Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide while having great aesthetics and is built for extreme athletes. He made made a promise to create a product that protects you and our planet while giving back to like-minded communities - TropicSport was born in 2017.
So in our first year we are EXCITED to share that TropicSport received a number 2 safety rating from EWG (Environmental Working Group). That means we are one of the few sunscreen brands out there with the least hazardous ingredients!
Like TropicSport the Environmental Working Group’s mission is to empower people to live healthier lives in a healthier environment. “With confusing chemical names like avobenzone and oxybenzone, it can be tough to tell the good from the bad when it comes to protecting your family from the sun's harmful rays. And not all sunscreens are created equal.” EWG. That is why every year EWG tests and rates the efficacy and safety of sunscreens in their guide.
EWG is a non-for profit, non partisan organization dedicated to educating people on how to select products that help and protect them. Until now, the non-profit’s Skin Deep Database has been the go-to resource for label translation–assigning products a rating of 1-10 (with 10 being the most toxic) based on packaging ingredient declarations. And that is why we are so proud to have a number 2 rating!
We hope you can make safer choices in the products you use and help protect the environment. We are all in this together!
