Frequently Asked Questions

What makes Alcohol-Free Reef Safe Defogger different from other defogging products?

Reef Safe Defogger is formulated without harmful chemicals, ensuring it's safe for all aquatic life and your eyes. It's designed to provide superior defogging performance while being eco-friendly.

Our eco-friendly formula is free of harmful chemicals like oxybenzone and octinoxate, which can damage coral reefs. Alcohol has been proven to be harmful to aquatic life. As a diver, you'll be most affected by alcohol with sensitive eyes.

Can I use Reef Safe Defogger on any type of diving mask?

Here's why our reef-safe formula excels, regardless of scuba lens type, Tempered, Plastic and Trivex:

  • Compatibility: Our defogger works by creating a thin, hydrophobic (water-repelling) film on the lens surface. This film is compatible with all standard scuba mask lens materials.

  • Performance: Regardless of lens type, our defogger effectively creates a clear barrier against fogging, enhancing your underwater visibility.

How long does one application last?

Our defog formula is long-lasting! Divers testing our product in demanding conditions report excellent performance, with minimal fogging even during exertion by our commercial defog users.

A pool session will need more applications, and diving in an ocean or lake it might go several dives without needing another application. If you rinse out all the defog by dragging it through the water will need another application. The same applies to all defogs, if it's all rinsed out, it will need another application.

While a single application won't last an entire lifetime underwater, it provides a significant amount of fog-free diving time for most users. Factors like water temperature and breathing intensity can affect how long it lasts, so some divers may reapply between dive as standard protocol.

For best results, follow the manufacturer's instructions on application and reapplication frequency.
