A new study published in the scientific journal, Chemosphere, finds that oxybenzone from commercial, over-the-counter sunscreens pose a threat to the health of coral reefs at Hanauma Bay. The study examines whether the source of these sunscreen chemicals come not just from swimmers and snorkelers, but the beach showers at the nature preserve.
