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.

There may also be as many as 82,000 kinds of chemicals from personal care products that have made their way into the world’s oceans, according to a report by Marine Life, a marine conservation NGO.
A Single Drop of Sunscreen Can Kill Coral
At last, coral reefs are finally getting some significant protection. Hawaii and Bonaire have just
banned sunscreens containing the sun-blocking
chemical oxybenzone. Furthermore, 13 United
Nations World Heritage sites have banned sunscreen use onsite
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!

Stream2Sea Teams Up with Shark Allies to Educate Against Shark Oil in Cosmetics
Stream2Sea, which set the standard for reef-safe sunscreens, has become the first brand to officially join the Shark Allies’ Shark Free Products Campaign.
Recognizing that chemicals commonly found in sunscreens and personal care products can be dangerous in marine ecosystems, Turtle Island Restoration Network has partnered with Stream2Sea to develop an educational campaign for its members.
With oxybenzone (and other benzophenones) increasingly implicated in the decline of the most popular coral reefs as well as human health, Stream2Sea Founder Autumn Blum has been quoted as saying that “white is the new green.” The white, of course, is non-nano titanium dioxide, the only sunscreen ingredient proven to be safe for fish, C. elegans and coral larva.
The newest version of the award-winning sunscreen now features a natural tint made with coral-safe minerals that reduces the whitening effect of the original product…
When people on a boat or a beach learn that Stream2Sea sunscreen doesn’t harm fish or coral, they automatically ask to try some. “Even though our formulas are highly concentrated, when sharing with others, it’s easy to quickly go through one of our tubes,” says Autumn Blum, founder and chief formulator for the only company offering a mineral-based sunscreen that has been tested and proven safe on various species including coral larvae…
