Coral Could Hold The Secret to Sunscreen


Could coral, those mysterious underwater creatures, hold the secret to an advanced form of sunscreen? Scientists at King’s College in London, UK, think so.

Coral living in the Great Barrier Reef of Australia produce natural sunscreen compounds that allow it to be protected from UV exposure. Examining samples of Acropora coral in particular, the scientists believe these sunscreen compounds can be synthetically replicated in order to create a product that would save on the time and application of sun protection: sunscreen in a pill!

While testing is planned for a lotion form of these compounds derived from coral, further research is necessary before creating the pill form. Interestingly enough, the lotion form will be tested on discarded skin obtained from tummy tuck procedures.

We look forward to the results. Scientists hope that the sunscreen pill will be able to deliver longer lasting sun protection for not only the skin, but the eyes as well.

These compounds are so effective that the compounds may even be passed onto fish that have fed on the coral!
