Even though Every Day Mineral Sunscreen is sheer and lightweight, applying a mineral sunscreen is different from what you might be used to! You never want a big glob in one spot. Better to apply in sections and rub in to blend. Reapply after 80 minutes of swimming, sweating or immediately after towel drying and at least every two hours.

Smart Sun Safety Tips: Spending time in the sun increases your risk of skin cancer and early skin aging. To decrease these risks, regularly use a sunscreen with a broad spectrum SPF value of 15 or higher and practice other sun protection measures including:

  • Limit time in the sun, especially from 10am – 2pm.
  • Wear long-sleeved shirts, pants, hats, and sunglasses.

Now put on your sunscreen and go play!

Did you know?

Most sunscreens lose 30 – 60% of their sun protection after 80 minutes in the water, but NOT Stream2Sea! Our new Every Day Mineral Sunscreens go on light and sheer and these formulas are so water-resistant that they actually perform 45% BETTER after you go for a swim. This is so unique to mineral sunscreens that we had to patent-pending it as WetBoost Technology™.

    My new favorite sunscreen!

    I received a free sample and it was soooo good! It is sheer and lightweight and stays on even after swimming for two hours. I have been waiting for the full size to be available ever since! I love all Stream2Sea sunscreens but this may be my new favorite.

  2. Jason (verified owner)

    Finally!

    This mineral sunscreen is life changing! I’ve been using the tinted Stream2Sea sunscreens because I’m just awful at applying the original, white product without looking like a ghost. A shear, mineral sunscreen is what I’ve been waiting for. It’s so easy to apply, not greasy, and you can’t even tell you put anything on at all! Well done, Stream2Sea!

    This is my favorite thus far
    I have loved all the products but this new sunscreen is the best it’s so smooth , easy to apply and goes on clear .

  4. JW (verified owner)

    I absolutely love this new sunscreen! I have used the others for years since I am outside all the time. But this one is amazing. I am awful about blending in the ones that are more white (I suppose at least I know I cover everywhere) but this one is the best! Sheer and smooth. You have outdone yourself!

  5. NR.

    No Ghosts

    It didn’t give us the white coloring that other mineral sunscreens do. I call this one the “socially acceptable” sunscreen for when going places. lol Kept us protected for a day at a theme park. I use the original Stream2Sea mineral sunscreens when doing more outdoorsy activities like diving or kayaking where I don’t feel judged for lathering up till I’m white.

  6. Kimberly

    I’m loving this sunscreen

    I am a full time State Park volunteer in Florida and I am in the sun everyday almost, I use Stream2Sea every morning before I leave my RV. I am pleased with its performance and that it does not burn my eyes like so many other sunblocks. I’m mostly pleased with the assurance that I am not contributing to the destruction of the delicate ecosystems of our precious waterways

  7. Jo (verified owner)

    Amazing

    Received product right before this weekend – and absolutely love it – easy to apply , non greasy, gets pretty fast absorbed by skin – i made sure to reapply and NO whatsoever sunburn after 2 days playing in the sun / beach / pool and best of it – it protects the ocean too! Well done – i like it even better than the tinted sunscreen – thank you Team Stream2Sea for consistently being on your A+ game

  8. Barbara

    Love this sunscreen!

    I’m a diver and have been using your original reef safe sunscreen for a while now, but I think I have a new favorite! This new formula goes on so easily and blends in really well. Love it!!

  9. Janet (verified owner)

    A good product

    This is the first all-mineral sunscreen I have used. I find it easy to apply and it does not leave a white cast (though I am very fair). My skin is very dewy after application, though it dries down before too long without being totally matte or feeling dried out. I am happy with this brand and their commitment to reef-safe products. Also really appreciate the added antioxidants and skin-nourishing ingredients in this product.

  10. WM. (verified owner)

    Now My Favorite Sunscreen!

    I tried this on a scuba trip to Bonaire which is very close to the equator and the sun is quite strong. Saved me from sunburn and went on much nicer than most reef safe sunscreens. Held up to many days of diving. Thanks for such a great product!

    SO GOOD!

    My son had a bad skin reaction and burned terribly on his face after using another natural sunscreen brand while at soccer camp.

    Switched to Stream 2 Sea Sport SPF 20 and it worked GREAT! No burns, and no skin irritation whatsoever. He is 9, so his only complaint was the slight white cast. Ordered this Everyday Active sunscreen and tried for the first time at soccer practice this evening—it’s SO GOOD! Moisturizing, and no white cast!

    I will continue to use the sport version for us both at the pool, river, etc (such a great product even with the cast which really isn’t bad at all) and continue to use this Everyday version for soccer, etc.

    Thank you for all of your amazing products—I am hooked and can’t wait to try them all!

  12. kmelillo (verified owner)

    Happy!

    I’ve always been a S2S fan, but admittedly, I struggled to get the sunscreen off at the end of the day. This Every Day line is a huge improvement. It still protects my skin (hours on a boat in The Bahamas) and at the end of the day, I feel like I can get clean without scraping my skin off. The tube doesn’t last that long, admittedly. But, the trade off for efficacy + environmental/health responsibility is well worth it.

    Best Mineral Sunscreen

    I have always been picky about my sunscreens. I switched to mineral vs. chemical several years ago but my go to product has been discontinued. I have been researching and trying to find a good fit for me. Last week I was on a cruise ship and had credit I had to spend or lose. I saw Stream2sea which I had never heard of so I pulled up reviews and info online. It checked all my boxes. I decided to try it. The next day I wore it to the beach and it was great. The best thing is that the company shows you the correct way to apply so you don’t look chalky or like a ghost. I always used too much and once I got used to dabbing then rubbing it in I had none of those issues. I went back and bought 2 more tubes. I will be recommending this product to friends and family as it is as good for the environment as it is for the user. I also bought the stick for quick touch ups. Love the ease of application, love it being 45 not 30 SPF, love that it’s noncomedogenic. Stream2sea is now part of my daily routine. Maybe one of these days I’ll go really wild and try the tinted.

    It works!

    The first day I used this we were on the river for 3 hot and very sunny hours.Coupled with a hat,proper clothing and the sunscreen lip balm (sold here) I had no signs of sunburn. I am very happy to have found this highly effective,chemical-free ,Eco Conscious product,thank you!

  15. Caroline (verified owner)

    This is my new favorite sunscreen. I am using it every day, and my husband and I will use it on our next scuba diving trip. I like that it blends in without making the skin look white.

  16. SR. (verified owner)

    Scott

    We started using Stream2Sea a few years ago when traveling on our snorkeling vacations. The products we have used have always lived up and well beyond our expectations. We appreciate a company that provides an excellent product while also concerned about the impacts to the sea environments we use it in. Also, appreciate the timeliness from order to receiving the product. Thank you Stream2Sea, you are our go to product!

  17. Joe (verified owner)

    I have not put the Every Day Active Mineral sunscreen to a full test yet. Purchased for an upcoming dive trip. I have applied it to see how it goes on and I’m pleased. A slight white tint at first which helped see where applied then quickly went to clear. Nice and smooth and non-greasy feel.

  18. GD.

    If you want a sunscreen that doesn’t wash off once you get in the water this it . Also I have used lots of other brands and all of them sting my eyes. Also wile surfing this one protects me from sunburn and IT DOES NOT STING MY EYES.

  19. KC.

    The BEST sunscreen on the market!

    I love the Stream2Sea sunscreens. They aren’t heavy and greasy like other brands, AND they aren’t full of toxic, reef-damaging chemicals. The fact that this new one increases your protection when it gets wet is amazing!

  20. GS.

    This is my go-to sunscreen especially for my diving trips. I can take it with me and feel confident that it won’t be banned in any country, it is safe and effective, but because the zinc is not particularized like many other products, it won’t harm our precious coral reefs.

  21. Stephanie (verified owner)

    Will repurchase every summer

    The best sunscreen I’ve ever tried! My son was getting really dry patches and horrible burns on his face after using another well known natural zinc sunscreen. We’re out in the sun for soccer tournaments/training all summer and he needed something that wouldn’t irritate, look ghostly, greasy, or run into his eyes. Discovered this last year and never buying anything else! Just stocked up again for this summer.

    I also use this everyday under a tinted “makeup sunscreen” and it works perfectly—can’t even feel it on my face! I’ll have to try the tinted version next.

  22. Rebecca (verified owner)

    The best sunscreen

    I have finally found the best sunscreen ever! I burn so easily, especially on the beach, this sunscreen has completely stopped the burn. I can’t believe how great this sunscreen really is! Thank you!

  23. SG.

    The best sunscreen in the world!

    This is my favorite sunscreen I’ve ever used! It has a light lovely scent, doesn’t hurt your eyes, and works so well! The official sunscreen of the Above Deck Podcast!

  24. summer (verified owner)

    Works Wonders!

    This was the first S2S sunscreen I tried, which led me to trying the tinted version as well. I love swapping the two depending on the day. Will continue to purchase!

    The fact that this is one of only a handful of EWG Verified sunscreens sold me on the product. I am impressed with the ingredients and excited to try this product.

    Reef Safe For The Win

    As an avid diver, I’ve been using S2S sunscreens for a couple of years now and have always been happy with how well my skin is protected. I decided to try the Everyday line for something a little more lightweight for daily wear. It goes on sheer and doesn’t leave a mineral cast as some sunscreens do. I have a more tan complexion and usually use the tinted versions for a nice close match to my skin color, but the white sunscreen works just as well! Also, the fact that it is 100% reef safe. I’m not only protecting my skin, I’m also helping to protect the sea creatures and the reefs that I love so much!

Safe For You and Safe For Our Waters

What does tested & proven safe means for our bodies, waters and coral reefs?

Just because the front of the bottle might say it is reef safe does not mean that it is. That is because these terms are not yet regulated. You still need to look at the back, starting with the active ingredients listing. We have also discovered that just because a product is safe for people does not mean it’s safe in an aquatic ecosystem. Modern science has given us many lab tests to determine the safety of cosmetics, but there are currently few scientific lab tests to see if products are harmful to fish, coral and other aquatic life. We put Stream2Sea products through numerous studies to prove our safety, and believe that our products are the safest on the market for all your water, reef and outdoor activities.

Biodegradability Tests

It is important to know that just because a product is biodegradable for example, a biodegradable sunscreen, does not mean that it is non-toxic. To be considered ‘readily biodegradable’, the product must break down into its natural state from 60-80% in 28 days. Stream2Sea products are readily biodegradable in fresh and salt water.

Reef and Marine Life Safety Tests

Swimming behavior with Stream2Sea biodegradable mineral sunscreen is relatively unaffected, whereas the competitor sunscreen most definitely altered the fish’s swimming behavior.
