This testimony action has now ended.
Maui County could be the first in the world to pass legislation phasing out the sale and use of oxybenzone and octinoxate-based sunscreens!
Oxybenzone and octinoxate, two of the most common active ingredients in chemical sunscreens, are scientifically proven coral killers. We need to do everything we can to protect our reefs and the organisms that live off them. In December 2017, Maui County’s Council will vote on a bill that, if passed, will prohibit the use and sale of SPF products with these ingredients. To our knowledge, this would be the first legislation world-wide to legally phase out these chemicals.
