All Vertra Products are mineral based sunscreens with “non-nanotized” zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. Non-nanotized means the ingredients are 100 nanometers in diameter or more. Studies show these larger particles to be safer for coral reefs than their chemical counterparts, which are typically under 100 nanometers. A nanometer reading below 100 is considered microscopic and is more easily absorbed by reef and marine life creating disruption.
Vertra’s non-nano particles allow us to offer the most effective UVA & UVB broad spectrum protection, while still being safe for reef environments.
All Vertra Sunscreen ingredients are Reef Safe. Our sunscreen products do not contain any Oxybenzone or Octinoxate.
Hawaii has set a ground breaking legislative ban on the selling of any sunscreens that contain Oxybenzone and Octinoxate. Key West Florida has now followed with a similar ban.

The Skin Cancer Foundation is recognized as the international, educational leader to the public and medical professions on skin cancer, skin cancer prevention, detection, and treatment. They have also set the highest criteria for sun and skincare products seeking to acquire their approval. All Vertra products were subjected to a stringent series of SPF, Very Water Resistant, and photo toxic/contact irritation/allergic reaction tests to see if they met the Foundations standards. The results were then reviewed by their photobiology committee, which is comprised of some the nations leading dermatologists and experts in their respected medical professions. We passed convincingly and now all
Vertra products possess the Skin Cancer Foundations Official Seal of Recommendation. We want all consumers to be able to recognize the importance and substance behind a product that bears the Seal and to know that one can truly take comfort in the fact that they are purchasing a safe and proven product, effective in the prevention of sun-induced damage to the skin.
