ZILOOA, Coral reefs friendly, is the Swiss brand ambassador for coral reefs.
Since its creation in 2011, the ZILOOA brand has been raising awareness about the harmful impact of chemical filters and Zinc oxide on coral reefs and other aquatic ecosystems. Countries are finally beginning to ban sunscreens that contain substances toxic to coral. After Mexico, Arab countries and Israel, Hawaii passed a law to this effect in the summer of 2018, followed by Palau, Micronesia in November 2018.
ZILOOA is the one and only Swiss brand to have carried out and validated coral reef compatibility tests. (carried out in an internationally renowned research institute in French Polynesia).
ZILOOA is inspired by the name of the coconut crab on an island in the Pacific. This species, living exclusively in coral regions, is endangered in some parts of the world.
