Sunscreen products and coral bleaching

Coral reef experts are unanimous that the main causes of coral bleaching are climate change, inconsistent local water treatment and sewage management, industrial discharge and runoff from agricultural land. Marc Léonard, Head of L'Oréal’s Environmental Research, explains how he and his team are ensuring that the combination of sunscreens in their products, even in concentrations higher than those found in the water, do not have an impact on corals. To do so, they have developed a method jointly with the Monaco Scientific Centre.
