The Most Mermaid-Friendly Glitter Sunscreen

Which Glitter Sunscreen Will Make You Shine Like A Real Mermaid?

It’s summah, summah, summah time, which means a few things: swimming, sun and sunscreen! As you mermaids know, there are more and more glitter sunscreen products coming on the market. While these sunscreens are all fabulous and shiny, not all of them are mermaid-friendly.

What qualifies a sunscreen to be mermaid-friendly? Well, it should be sensitive to the skin, have a good SPF, be free of the chemicals oxybenzone and octinoxate, which harm coral reefs, and the glitter particles should be biodegradable.

We’ve heard a lot about Sunshine & Glitter’s Seastar Sparkle Glitter Sunscreen, which comes in fun colors and flavors. However, if you are a mermaid who plans on swimming in oceans, rivers and lakes, we would actually recommend you use Sunshine & Glitter’s Beach Gypsy SPF 50 with Gold Glitter. Why? Because that’s their sun-protection formula with biodegradable glitter. It’s better for fishes…and you! Throw it in your mermaid bag with these other mermaid summer essentials. While you’re at it, better listen to The Mermaid Podcast!
