Bill 135 Bans all NON MINERAL based Sun Products
The County of Maui will band any lip balm, sunscreen, tanning lotion, sprays, etc. that is NOT mineral based. Hawaii is asking all visitors use sunscreen and lip-balm that is mineral based to protect the environment.
Buy local approved products when you arrive instead of bringing your own. Maui Ocean Treasures, the world-class gift store at Maui Ocean Center, is celebrating June’s National Oceans Month and World Reef Day with the help of science-backed reef-friendly sunscreen brand, Raw Elements. The two companies have partnered together to bring ocean-safe sunscreen front and center ahead of the enactment of Bill 135, a Maui County ban on all chemical sunscreen that will take effect on October 1, 2022.
