what is best REEF FRIENDLY sunscreen?

I've loved to swim in the ocean(s) all my life (from Africa, Caribbean, Florida to Guam and Bali). I do now try to use the MOST REEF FRIENDLY sunscreen I can get. Anybody have recommendations here? For or against any brand? (For environment I no longer use aerosol.)
Also I get the impression at times that some reef-friendly brands don't work as well as regular sunscreen at preventing sunburn (tho I'm not sure about this). IF so, I still want to use reef friendly.

Sincere mahalo for any helpful info! - Harry A2
