Autumn Blum, renowned for founding Stream2Sea reef-safe skin-care products, recently helped launch the “Crazy for Coral” mission to plant 10,000 corals.
In 2015, after a dive trip to Palau helped her realize that ingredients in body-care products are toxic to fragile aquatic ecosystems, Autumn founded Stream2Sea in Wauchula, Florida.
Stream2Sea mineral-based sunscreen products have passed the stringent Haereticus Environmental Laboratory’s Protect Land + Sea certification, which tests and proves safety for freshwater and saltwater fish and coral larvae.

With global warming intensifying, here are 10 ways you can fight climate change this summer
Put on ocean-friendly sunscreen
If you’re going to the beach, whether you tan or burn, you’ll have to deal with the sun. You might not think twice about using your favorite sunscreen, but what if we told you that it could damage the environment? Octinoxate has been linked to coral reef damage, to the point of several coastal destinations banning sunscreens that use it as an ingredient. Since coral bleaching is one of the effects of global warming, using octinoxate-free sunscreen will help mitigate future damage.

Screen the Sun
Numerous sunscreen options are prone to releasing pollutants, especially in watery environments. Compensate by using eco-friendly, water-resistant sunscreens like the Sport Sunscreen by Stream2Sea. It’s biodegradable, paraben-free, and comprises natural minerals that can put your environmental concerns at ease. Even its packaging is made from recycled material.

Stream2Sea Ecostick: Best for Water Sports
All the mineral formulas here are water-resistant, but Stream2Sea’s line of EcoSticks was the hardest to wash off during testing. Its unique application—skin takes on a blue or pink cast; once the color goes away, it’s time to reapply—makes it easy to visualize how protected your skin is even after several hours in the ocean. Stream2Sea also proves its reef-safe claims by testing the impact of its ingredients on aquatic ecosystems.
The Best Reef-Safe, Eco-Friendly Sunscreens
#1: Stream2Sea Sport Sunscreen BEST WATER-RESISTANT SUNCREEN
This brand earned the seal of approval from Downs and Haereticus. In short, you can feel good about dousing yourself with the water-resistant (up to 80 minutes), biodegradable, paraben-free broad spectrum sunblock before diving into the deep end of the ocean. The active ingredient is non-nano titanium dioxide while green tea, tulsi leaf, seaweed, aloe, and coconut oil make the Sport line less harsh on skin. Bonus points for using 100-percent recycled or recyclable packaging.

From Ripple to Groundswell, Stream2Sea’s Making Waves of Change
Over the year since we last caught up with Stream2Sea, they’ve been struggling . . . to keep up with demand! It’s a problem that’s good to have because the more people are using eco-friendly products, the more our delicate environments are being protected. And boy are people using them!
We meet up with Stream2Sea’s ‘Mad Chemist.’
Blum and Nussbaum are somewhere between “local celebrities” and “hometown heroes,” having met on a dive boat of the now-defunct Scuba-Do Dive Company in Key Largo. Years later, in 2014, they would launch Stream2Sea together. “We’re Florida grown, Florida made, Key Largo launched,” says Blum.
Senate Panel Votes to Ban Sunscreens with Toxic Chemicals
A Senate committee voted Monday to forward a bill banning two chemicals found in many sunscreens after a panel of witnesses, including chemists and divers, testified that the compounds contribute to the deterioration of coral reefs and have been linked to harmful side effects in humans. Cosmetic chemist Autumn Blum testifies Monday before the Senate Committee on Government Operations, Consumers and Affairs, describing the toxic chemicals found in most sunscreens.

How to Know if Your Sunscreen is Killing Coral Reefs — and 11 Brands to Try Instead

Stream 2 Sea Sunscreen
One reason that I love this brand so much is because they are very eco-conscious and have made sure to be very reef safe -and even use sugar cane resin tubes! Their ingredients list contains several certified organic ingredients like green tea, tulsi, wakame seaweed, olive, and aloe. SPF 30 is the only product I’ve used of theirs, and even though it’s 10 more than their 20 SPF I find that it gives a matte finish -so it’s not greasy in any way! For a natural sunscreen that’s biodegradable, 80 min. water resistant, aquatic safe, and a healthier option overall I must applaud Stream 2 Sea. I love them, and I highly recommend this company! I even used this as makeup all over my face and I don’t mind it at all!
