Our Story

Stream2Sea was founded in 2015 in rural central Florida when Autumn Blum, an avid scuba diver and cosmetic chemist, saw an oil slick coming off a group of snorkelers in Palau.  She realized that the products we put on our bodies could be highly toxic to our fragile aquatic ecosystem and knew she had to do something about it. Today, Stream2Sea has the only mineral-based sunscreen on the planet that’s been tested and proven safe for freshwater fish, saltwater fish, and coral larvae and has passed the stringent HEL Labs Protect Land + Sea certification.

Whether your adventure takes you to the top of a mountain, the bottom of the ocean, or the treehouse in the backyard, Stream2Sea products were developed to never let you down.  Made for the conscious individual who cares about what they put on their body and into our planet, for people who care by people who care. 

Stream2Sea is a woman-owned, veteran-operated company that manufactures all our products in our FDA-registered facility in rural central Florida, supporting USA jobs.

Stream2Sea products do not contain any ingredients known or suspected to harm our blue planet. We have the ONLY products in the world tested and proven safe for freshwater fish, saltwater fish, and coral larvae.

Our Team


Aqua Warrior; CEO & Formulator

Autumn Blum is an entrepreneur, cosmetic chemist, scuba diver, animal advocate and ocean warrior. She grew up in Sarasota, FL and graduated from Eckerd College with a B.Sc. in Chemistry and environmental geology. After spending 15 years as a cosmetic chemist formulating products for the natural products industry, she noticed a sunscreen slick coming off a group of snorkelers while diving in Palau. She observed with increasing frustration the divers and crew bathing on deck after every dive – the soap, sunscreen and conditioner residues washing right overboard into these pristine waters with some of the most beautiful reefs in the world. As a cosmetic chemist, she knew that we could do better for our oceans, reefs, and ourselves. She came home from the trip determined to create a performance-based product line that would be safe for us and for our waters. In 2015, she launched Stream2Sea. Now, she continues to work harder than ever to create new Aqua Warriors to help spread our message. When Autumn’s not in the water or talking about protecting it, she enjoys spending time with her life partner John, their 7 dogs, 11 ducks, and 65 chickens. If you ever come by the warehouse, you will most likely leave with not only sunscreen, but a dozen eggs as well.
