IFSCC Debate: Reef Safe Sunscreens – Environmental Concern or Marketing Hype? Webinar 9 August



There’s significant consumer interest in Reef Safe Sunscreens, but is there really such a thing? Is there science to prove that reef safe sunscreens exist, or is it just marketing type?


Join us for another in our popular series of IFSCC Debates. Our debaters will be:

​​​​​​​- Dr Heleen Kibbelaar, Science Meets Cosmetics

​​​​​​​- Autumn Blum, Stream2Sea

​​​​​​​The Moderator will be Perry Romanowski, IFSCC Chair of Education.

​​​​​​​Dr Kibbelaar is a cosmetic scientist who posts frequently on social media on the science behind cosmetics, including her thoughts on sunscreen. Autumn Blum has created a line of reef safe sunscreens (and other products) as part of her advocacy of marine life.

Join us to hear both sides of this hot topic.
