Hawaii: Save Coral Ban Sunscreen

 Hawaii State Senator Will Espero.Corals, supposedly not fans of sunscreen.Despite how badly the New Black Panther Party might want you to don sunscreen come Summer, Hawaii State Senator Will Espero proposed a bill in January that would ban the sale of any sunscreen that has oxybenzone and octinoxate--- you know, to save the environment.

Some research suggests that using those two chemicals to keep melanoma at bay, might actually lead to coral bleaching, and Hawaii’s Department of Land and Natural Resources claims that, “Researchers have found oxybenzone concentrations in some Hawaiian waters at more than 30 times the level considered safe for corals.”

Provided the new bill goes through would mean that even Hawaiian Tropic could not be legally sold in Hawaii.Hawaiian Tropic.

It’s not just Espero that is after your sunscreen, as several other bills were proposed during that same session to combat sunscreen and save coral, including six banning the sale, three banning the general use of sunscreens with oxybenzone and octinoxate, and one mandating stores display warnings on sunscreen.

On the other side of Big Government, the American CDC recently released a report chastising schools for not providing their students with sunscreen, not making any distinction between those sunscreens with oxybenzone and octinoxate.
