Heal the Bay and The Aquarium of the Pacific.

EPO9 is thrilled to announce that you can now find our reef safe mineral sunscreen products at The Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach and at the Heal the Bay Aquarium in Santa Monica, California.

Coral Sure Sunscreen is not available on Amazon or at big box stores. Our growth strategy has focused on independent surf, scuba, and adventure shops. We are always looking for retail partners whose organization’s ethos and values are similarly aligned. Therefore, being able to team up with The Aquarium of the Pacific and Heal the Bay is a match made in heaven.

The Aquarium of the Pacific’s mission is to instill a sense of wonder, respect, and stewardship for the Pacific Ocean, its inhabitants, and ecosystems. Heal the Bay is an environmental nonprofit dedicated to making the coastal waters and watersheds in Greater Los Angeles safe, healthy, and clean.

Co-founder, Neil Hobbs, said “One of the reasons we formed EPO9 was to manufacture a sunscreen that was truly non-toxic to the reef eco-system. To be able to partner with organizations such as Heal the Bay and the Aquarium of the Pacific is a natural fit and a great opportunity for us to lend support to their environmental activism through science, education, community action, and advocacy.”

EPO9 is committed to developing a sunscreen that is completely harmless to the marine environment and we are constantly striving to source more eco-friendly packaging.

As you probably already know, Coral Sure Sunscreen tube packaging is made from plants and are 100% recyclable. And, the formula is locally made in Van Nuys, CA in a plant powered entirely by solar power!

Our promise is that, unlike some of our competitors, we will never sell a product that contains chemicals known to be harmful to the marine eco-system.


EPO9 was formed four years ago by a collection of surfers, scuba divers, snorkelers, swimmers and outdoor enthusiasts who worship the sun but really care about, and want to protect, the oceans and marine environment which brings us so much joy. Eponine Labs, LLC was incorporated in June 2022. Its mission is to manufacture a sunscreen that is truly non-toxic to the marine eco-system and ​will afford the user the highest standard of skin protection from the sun's harmful UV rays.

People choose Coral Sure Sunscreen for its broad spectrum protection and non-toxic, moisturizing properties. Learn more at
