The following measures are recommended:. Researching the extent and significance of bio-concentration and bio-accumulation of organic UV filters as well as the consequences of long-term, chronic exposure to heyl pollutants. The chemical UV filter oxybenzone has been studied most intensively and the following effects have been described: Reducing the amount of harmful sunscreen components that reach the reef environment is a high priority and will require the involvement of governments, reef managers, divers, snorkelers and swimmers, and the tourism and pharmaceutical industries.

Identifying those ingredients that are safe and those that pose a realistic threat to marine ecosystems. In vitrotopical application of diethylamino hydroxybenzoyl hexyl benzoate exerted an anti-inflammatory effect on inflammation-evoked mouse ears by inhibiting oedema formation [ 3 ]. No case of overdose has been reported. Further research is needed to better understand which ingredients are safe and which pose a realistic threat to marine ecosystems, in particular:.

The following measures are recommended: Diethylamino hydroxybenzoyl hexyl benzoate was not shown to be mutagenic, clastogenic, or phototoxic in vitro [ 4 ].

Where sunscreen components have been detected, concentrations are very variable. Investigating the effects of sunscreen pollutants at reef community and ecosystem level. A small number of studies have shown that sunscreen and certain individual components of sunscreen can have negative effects on corals and other marine organisms under certain circumstances.


The chemical UV filter oxybenzone has been studied most intensively and the following effects have been described:. Damage to coral DNA and to their reproductive success.

Most experiments have also hydroxybebzoyl of relatively short duration 12 or 24 hours. To date, experiments have largely been undertaken ex-situ and there are concerns that they may not properly reflect conditions on the reef, where pollutants could be rapidly dispersed and diluted.

Considering the many stresses already faced by reefs and current concerns about the toxicity of certain components of sunscreens to corals, a proactive and precautionary approach to dealing with this issue may be required. In general, concentrations of UV filters used in experimental work have been higher than likely to be encountered in the reef environment.

They also contain inactive ingredients such as gexyl preservatives, moisturisers and anti-oxidants. Diethylamino hydroxybenzoyl hexyl benzoate is an organic UV filter that attenuates the exposure of UV radiation on human skin [ 2 ]. Impacts of sunscreens on coral reefs. Diethylamino hydroxybenzoyl hexyl benzoate 0. They are generally found at barely detectable levels of a few parts per trillion but much higher concentrations of over 1 part per million ppm have been reported in a few locations e.

Diethylamino hydroxybenzoyl ciethylamino benzoate. Based on the findings of a rat study assessing dermal or percutaneous absorption, only a minor amount of diethylamino hydroxybenzoyl hexyl benzoate will undergo percutaneous absorption and most of the compounds will remain in the upper layers of the stratum corneum [ 4 ].

Induction of the lytic viral cycle in symbiotic zooxanthellae with latent infections. On the reef, while UV filters may be at lower concentrations, they can accumulate in organisms and sediment and thus become persistent, with largely unknown consequences.

Investigating UV filter toxicity in relation to predicted warming and ocean acidification conditions. Diethylamino hydroxybenzoyl hexyl benzoate absorbs in the UV-A range with the peak at nm [ 1 ].

Research to date has also concentrated mainly on the effects of sunscreens and individual chemicals at subcellular, cellular and individual organism level, with very few studies of wider impacts.

In rat and porcine skin, the percutaneous absorption hydroxynenzoyl 0.

Damage and deformation of coral larvae planulae. Bleaching of coral fragments and coral cells from various species of hard coral.

Encouraging the manufacture of reef-friendly sunscreens. Minimizing the overexposure of human skin to ultraviolet radiation that may lead to acute and chronic photodamage, diethylamino hydroxybenzoyl hexyl benzoate is an oil-soluble UV filter that may be incorporated in the oil phase of emulsions [ 4 ].

This effect is more pronounced at higher water temperatures. Many of these components have also been found in marine biota including fish, molluscs and corals as well as in sediments. Further research is needed to better understand which ingredients are safe and which pose a realistic threat to marine ecosystems, in particular:
