Tinted Sunscreen SPF 20 is a high performance mineral-based sunscreen which protects your body while preserving the ecosystems you love.

Our sunscreens exceed the FDA’s requirements for broad-spectrum claims. Natural tint reduces whitening effect of mineral sunscreens, blending well with most skin tones. Performance-based and rigorously tested to ensure the safest possible ingredients for you, your family and our waters.

 

Usage:

NOTE: Applying a mineral sunscreen is different from what you might be used to!  Apply in sections and remember that a little goes a long way. Reapply after 80 minutes of swimming, sweating or immediately after towel drying and at least every two hours. Our tint is from mineral pigments which may stain clothing. Learn more here.

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.

  1. Victoria N.

    This is a truly amazing product — goes on easily even for daily use — and I love knowing that I’m not washing toxic chemicals down my drain when I take it off at night.

  2. Faye W. (verified owner)

    The most amazing thing about this sunscreen, apart from the fact it is reef friendly of course, is that it really does stay put and does not sting eyes. As a scuba diver this is very important. This sun screen kept my fair skin completely safe in very strong sun. The tinted version is a lovely subtle shade that doesn’t have the white tint like the original. Fantastic product!

  3. Diana D. (verified owner)

    This sunscreen is awesome! Most importantly, I know I am helping to protect the reefs. I love that it doesn’t feel greasy or have a weird smell. The tint matches my skin color well so I can wear it anytime!

  4. Margaret B.

    I will highly recommend this product. I spent 8 days on a boat scuba diving and I never burned! The tinted product blended well and was not greasy. I will gladly spread the word. I used several products loved them all

  5. Lisa H.

    The tint in this formula helps with the opaque quality of titanium dioxide. I think I’d like the option of a darker tint. As for it’s sunscreen protection, I have been very happy with it. I haven’t yet tried it’s water staying power, but I like knowing it works and it’s safe.

  6. Sue C.

    So far I have used the tinted sunscreen, and I really like it. Not heavy, goes on nicely, all is good!

  7. Nicole

    Oh I wish I could rate more than 5 stars. I’ve always had more fair skin that burns extremely easy even after applying sunscreen. I tried this kind out and after 6 HOURS, yes, 6 hours, at the lake with no reapplying and being in and out of the water and sweating, I did not burn at all. I didn’t even get pink! This sunscreen is my new holy grail. Will never buy anything else!!!

  8. EAW (verified owner)

    Superb product. Spent two weeks snorkeling and surfing in Hawaii and never burned.

  9. Autumn B.

    Thanks so much! Sounds like a wonderful trip 🙂

  10. meganmcl38

    I love this product! You don’t need a lot of it for it to work. I have very fair skin and used it on a sail boat and snorkeling all day and didn’t get burnt! I also received it very fast, really impressed.

  11. BSundquist

    I was very excited to try out a new sunscreen. Full disclosure, I am what you call very fair skinned. I burn faster than the marshmallows roasting at you campfire….literally. So sunscreen is an absolute MUST for me. My first beach day of the Summer I had reapplied a 40SPF sunscreen 5 times throughout the day and still ended up a ripe tomato.
    Now as I had said previously, I had a permit for the Narrows and thought that would be a great place to try it out with all the Sun and water, but the trail was closed. So my husband and I decided to take a day to drive from Zion to Lake Powell, where we rented a 2 person kayak and decided to kayak into Lower Antelope Canyon.
    When first applying the tinted sunscreen, I immediately noticed the difference from other “white” sunscreens. You still have to rub it in very well, but you don’t have those white streaks running down you as you normally would. I was worried it wouldn’t blend well with my skin tone, but surprisingly it did. It also blended well with my husband’s skin who is much darker than me. I have quite a few tattoos and I noticed it did look kind of strange on ink. It was almost like you could tell there was a film of goo over the tattoo.
    So we heading out in the kayak down into the canyon till we hit land, then began hiking in. We spent about 6 hours in direct sunlight without reapplying and I will say I did not even get pink. I normally would have burned to a crisp, but nothing, no redness on my shoulders or top of my thighs.
    This stuff works!
    There was however one thing I did not like about it…
    It felt heavy. You could tell that you have sunscreen on. You could feel it.
    It wasn’t sticky at all, but it did have just a certain feel to it, that you do not get with the spray, lightweight sunscreens we have nowadays.
    Overall, my skin was protected. A whole day in the Sun mixed with splashing water and it felt good to not be paying for it in the morning with a huge sunburn!

  12. Kathleen A.

    I used the tinted sunscreen and loved it! I found that applying sunscreen after my hydrating serum worked best for me.

  13. Jackie H. (verified owner)

    I bought the tinted sunscreen because I was tired of spending a fortune on foundation that did nothing but burn a hole in my pocketbook. I learned about this product after I had already purchased a different product. Of the two, Stream2Sea was less expensive, even with shipping, and worked beautifully. It provides great coverage, smoothing out my complexion, while at the same time providing all the sunscreen my face needs. And, of course, it is people- and ocean-friendly. What’s not to love? A couple of points: Watch Autumn’s video before applying. She has a simple way to apply mineral sunscreen that is different from regular sunscreen, and it’s so much easier. Also: The tint looks darker coming out of the tube that it does on your face, so don’t be alarmed. I believe the tint will blend well with most complexions. I will definitely buy it again.

  14. JR (verified owner)

    My daughter was worried SPF20 wouldn’t be enough but I assured her it would. Was out for a whole day in the hot tropical sun with my wife and daughter and applied just a thin layer enough to cover our exposed skin and we didn’t even burn!

  15. eab

    Such a delight! Living in Miami it’s not easy to avoid the sun. I used to add a bit of foundation makeup to sunscreen to achieve what this product does. You don’t need much, and the coverage is great and lasts. Give it a try; you won’t be disappointed. Total bonus that it doesn’t harm the reefs too!

  16. Wendy M.

    Love this tinted sunscreen (and the regular one, too)! Having tinted for my face replaces the need for foundation when on dive trips where you really need great sunscreen all the time. Doesn’t sting my eyes in the water.

  17. Julie G. (verified owner)

    I have been using this instead of expensive foundation. It works well as a sunscreen, evens out my skin tones, and lasts all day. I really love it. I came here today to buy more, and thought I would leave a review while I was here. Recommended!

  18. Rose

    The tinted sunscreen spf 20 is a great sunscreen to use on your face. I use it daily on my face and I like that it’s fragrance free and doesn’t burn your eyes.
    Thank you Stream2Sea for making a great product!

  19. Becky

    Very happy with the color and protection it provides. Only need a little to cover large area of skin. I use from head to toe when at the pool or beach and use daily on my face, instead of foundation. Very happy!
