All Vertra products are designed, formulated and manufactured to the highest sunscreen and cosmetic industry standards. Our sticks are reef safe and paraben free as well.
Vertra uses "physical blockers" that are mineral based, to protect against both UVB and UVA ultraviolet rays from the sun. This results in a broad spectrum range of product with the highest FDA allowable water resistancy rating of 80 minutes.
The Elite & Signature Face stick ranges are derived using cosmetically formulated and specialized manufacturing processes rarely found in the mass sunscreen market. That is what gives our benchmark products the similar weight and feel of even the finest designer cosmetic brand’s SPF offerings. What you are purchasing is essentially a cosmetic foundation with SPF properties and NOT a sunscreen face stick with pigment. There IS a difference.
Vertra is committed to creating a premium line that is not only reef-safe, Octinoxate & Oxybenzone free, but also infused with non-nano, mineral UVA/UVB blockers that meet the maximum 80-minute FDA water and sweat resistance ratings. Our line protects the Earth’s reefs and your skin at the same time.
All Vertra Sunscreen ingredients are Reef Safe. Our sunscreen products do not contain any Oxybenzone or Octinoxate.
Hawaii has set a ground breaking legislative ban on the selling of any sunscreens that contain Oxybenzone and Octinoxate. Key West Florida has now followed with a similar ban.
Optimum “Broad Spectrum” protection against skin damaging UVA rays and skin burning UVB rays.
UVA rays can prematurely age your skin, causing wrinkling and age spots.
UVB rays can burn your skin.
Too much exposure to UVA or UVB rays can cause skin cancer.
Vertra provides Broad Spectrum protection and protects the skin from all UV light.
All Vertra products are tested to the industry maximum.
There are (40 Minutes) and (80 Minutes) "Water Resistant" sunscreens per the FDA and their required testing.
Per the FDA: “People should also be aware that no sunscreens are "waterproof.”
All sunscreens eventually wash off.
The SPF number that appears on our products is the SPF protection level AFTER subjects have been exposed to 80 minutes of water immersion or sweating.

Vertra is proud to be the Official Suncare Provider for the Hawaiian Lifeguard Association - The unified voice of Hawaii’s elite ocean safety officers.
The Hawaiian Lifeguard Association was organized in 1990, as an offshoot of the former Hawaii Lifesaving Association, a local chapter of the United States Lifesaving Association. The re-organization was focused on educational issues and challenges specific to lifegaurding and ocean safety services in Hawaii’s unique ocean and cultural environment.
The Hawaiian Lifeguard Association seeks to:
• Establish and maintain the highest standards of professional surf and open water lifesaving in an effort to maximize the safety of the public in ocean and coastal waters throughout the State of Hawaii.
• Provide public, professional, and governmental education in the field of ocean safety, particularly in the areas of rescue
management, emergency medical care and treatment, and to conduct informational and educational activities designed to prevent aquatic emergencies in Hawaiian waters.
• Actively support and promote the improvement and progression of lifesaving throughout the State of Hawaii.
All Vertra Products are Cruelty Free with no animal testing.
All Vertra Products with this icon are alcohol free.
All Vertra Products are Paraben Free.
All Vertra Products are mineral based sunscreens with “non-nanotized” zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. Non-nanotized means the ingredients are 100 nanometers in diameter or more. Studies show these larger particles to be safer for coral reefs than their chemical counterparts, which are typically under 100 nanometers. A nanometer reading below 100 is considered microscopic and is more easily absorbed by reef and marine life creating disruption.
Vertra's non-nano particles allow us to offer the most effective UVA & UVB broad spectrum protection, while still being safe for reef environments.
