At BU, we’re passionate about creating products that people love to wear! We believe that sunscreen should feel as good as it is effective, which is why it’s our mission to develop safe and effective products you’ll love wearing everyday.
The planet means a great deal to us at bu, we believe in the Three R’s – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
Eco-Friendly – Bottles are 100% recyclable (Bisphenol-A free), using PET (polyethylene terephthalate no. 1 recyclable) plastic. Limiting excess packaging whenever possible and using cardboard that is post-consumer recycled board, is another way we try to reduce waste.
Bu uses manual, finger-powered sprayers. These non-pressurized aerosol pharmaceutical-grade sprayers disperse an ultra-fine mist and like all Bu components, they are also recyclable.
Powered by the Sun – Bu’s commitment to the environment made us search and find a GMP compliant manufacturer that uses Solar Power during production, making bü products virtually carbon neutral.
Reef Safe – NO sunscreen is truly “reef safe”, organic (chemical) and in-organic (mineral) sunscreen ingredients are both problematic for the fragile reefs, and this is a fraction of the global water pollution dilemma.
If you planning a reef outing, UV Apparel is your best bet for sun protection, the fibers in the material don’t come off and effect the reef.
Human beings (us) still need to be cautious in this amazing but fragile environment. When we are in the coral reefs, we shouldn’t handle, kick or break the coral.
When we go into the reef, we bring all the other products we use (shampoo, moisturizer, deodorant, sunscreen) and our skin microbiome with thousands of different bacterial species to this environment.
The biggest proven issue of global warming, which is documented to be bleaching “killing” the reefs, as well as pollution and coastal developments.
Again, we suggest UV apparel. More testing is going to be done to determine the safest sunscreens for the reefs.
Bu products are cruelty-free and are not tested on animals, nor do they contain any animal derivatives (100% vegan).
Go outside enjoy the outdoor and feel confident that you are protected with BU so you can just be you!
