Why seasap ?
our oceans dont like normal sunblock
Research has proven the effects of a chemical in sunscreen are toxic at the concentration equivalent to a drop of water in an Olympic pool.
The chemical oxybenzone has toxic effects on young coral that causes endocrine disruption, DNA damage and death of coral, among other the problems. Oxybenzone also exacerbates coral bleaching, a process by which coral reject symbiotic organisms and lose their color. Bleaching has been particularly prevalent in recent years due to rising sea temperatures. - Time Magazine
SeaSap contains 0% oxybenzone.
New Zealand has the highest rate of skin cancer in the world.
Unfortunately New Zealand has a famously weak atmospheric shield from the sun. This poses an immediate threat to us Kiwis.
Certain areas that are exposed time and time again, such as the nose and ears, are at high risk of skin cancer in the long term.
SeaSap is designed specifically for those high exposure areas. SeaSap has got you covered.

Studies have proven that the key UV blocking ingredient in chemical based sunblocks 'oxybenzone', is in fact harmful to humans.
Effects range from minor, a skin rash, to very severe. Sunscreens commonly include ingredients that act as “penetration enhancers” and help the product to stick to the skin without washing away. As a result, not surprisingly, many sunscreen chemicals are absorbed into the body and can be found in blood, urine samples, and breast milk.
SeaSap uses a mineral UV block and all natural ingredients which your body will thank you for.
