Sustainable Products Need Sustainable Packaging

We don’t like plastic either! That is why our tubes are made from sugarcane resins, our 32 oz bottles are made from recycled milk jugs, and our baggies are made with biodegradable and recyclable PLA film.

3 Things to Know About Stream2Sea

We are really reef safe

The term "coral reef safe" implies that it is safe for the entire reef, but how does one know this? Stream2Sea is the ONLY reef friendly mineral sunscreen that is tested and proven safe to fishes and coral larvae.

Our packaging is eco-friendly

We support ocean conservation

Partnering and contributing to 1% for the Planet, the Coral Restoration Foundation, Reef Check, NAUI's Green Diver Initiative and many other eco-conscious non-profits is our way of giving back.

Testing on Fish and Coral

We tested our safe sunscreen products to ensure they will not be harmful to fish and other aquatic life when used as directed. We are adamantly opposed to animal testing when there are other alternatives. At this time, there are no cellular cultures or models that effectively assess aquatic toxicity to the extent that we feel is necessary. Therefore, our testing included the use of purposely bred live fish and EcoConsciously and scientifically obtained coral larvae.

The Truth about Coral Reef Safe

Fact: There are NO official, approved tests or certification for reef-safe or ocean-safe products. The term coral reef safe implies that it is safe for the entire reef, but how does one know this? You would have to test on things that are not currently testable, or at this point are cost prohibitive to test. We would not put a product on the market that doesn’t pass the most intense testing we can manage, while also meeting our standards for human safety as well.
