Barrier-Reef-CoralsAs per reports, it has been unveiled that CSIRO has partnered with Larissa Bright Australia, a skincare company. Their partnership has resulted into the development of UVA/UVB sunscreen filters that are one of a kind across the globe.

One of attracting features of the sunscreen filters is that they imitate the sun protection regime that is used by corals on the Great Barrier Reef.

The development is said to be quite promising as it can pave the way for new line of sunscreens. These novel types of sunscreens will be having the natural sun protection that is being used by corals of Australia's Great Barrier Reef.

The protection is in use for more than millions of years, said CSIRO scientists. They continued by unveiling that the newly developed filters are transparent and colorless and they can be mixed with any other lotion.

It's been two years now that CSIRO scientists have been trying to understand that sunscreen code of coral present at Australia's Great Barrier Reef. After knowing the same, certain adjustments were made so that they can be used for humans.

"We feel these filters will set a new standard in broad spectrum sunscreen. They mimic the natural sunscreen coral has developed and used over millions of years", said Larissa Bright, Company Director of Larissa Bright Australia.
