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.
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.

Hi my lovely water spirits! Your friendly neighborhood mermaid here. So…this mermaid has a few scales here and there, right? And certainly some tails to tell too, but this, my briny friends, is no tall tale:
When I smoothed Stream2Sea’s new tinted sunscreen on, it immediately blended right onto m skin! It feels so light and creamy – like my favorite skin moisturizer, only better! It protects what we LOVE: our bodies and our oceans! It keeps my skin and mermaid tail shimmering and iridescent! I love this stuff! Y’all get some right away because you’ll love it too!!!
Amber (verified owner) –
I absolutely love this sunscreen! The texture is not greasy and it has just enough tint to improve the look of my skin. This is going to be my go to sunscreen from now on.
Martin B. (verified owner) –
I really love this product. I enjoy diving a lot, and I also spend a lot of time in the sun and the ocean. I am extremely sensitive to the sun because of the meds I take, but despite this, I have never burned while using this sunscreen from Stream2Sea. This product is also the safest for our oceans and reefs. We appreciate you helping to save our oceans and our skin. Thank you Seller!
June S. (verified owner) –
I have always cared about our environment, and now as a senior, I need to be super conscious about what I put on my face and body. I was excited about the tint, but a little concerned, because natural doesn’t always mean eco-conscious. After reading the product literature I am confident that the company uses only the safest ingredients. I’m a fan for life!

I train on the Palmer snow field on Mt. Hood all summer at the 8500 ft. level. It’s hot, I sweat, and with this product I’m not getting burnt. A small amount spreads on easily and the tint keeps me from looking like a total geek. Great product!
Candice (verified owner) –
Great product. It doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin and it softens my complexion. I’m 30 years old with combination skin, prone to breakouts with certain products and Caucasian with pink undertones. The tint looks natural on. I even could put some on my lips For extra protection. I will definitely buy more when this runs out. The reduced ecological footprint coupled with the fact that it works very well makes it worth every penny! I hope more people come around to using these products.
Lyle R. (verified owner) –
This product works great! I had no sunburn when I went on Hawaii.
Rebecca (verified owner) –
I love the compact bottles since they fit wonderfully in my on-board diving kit. I even would say it improved my complexion in my face so good that even when I don’t wear makeup. The best thing about this product is that it is safe for the environment!
Alan (verified owner) –
While these products may be better for the environment and are certainly effective as sunscreens, we found the tinted product to be difficult to use in practice as it stained clothing and went on more or less like a pancake foundation. It does not dry to a non-staining state and continues to rub off on clothing and swimsuits throughout the day, requireing soap and hot water to remove. Not recommended if you cannot tolerate these conditions.
Autumn B. –
Hi Alan – If the sunscreen feels like pancake, I believe you might be over applying as it should feel light and natural. The tint can rub off on light clothing, but we have found it comes right out with oxyclean and other stain removers. We sincerely appreciate you taking the time to leave your feedback for us and others to learn!

As a scuba diver, I’ve always loved the Stream2Sea sunscreen knowing I was protecting myself while also protecting the ocean I adore. However, it (like all mineral sunscreens) always made me look even paler than I already was. Then, I tried this tinted version & it blended in beautifully! Surprisingly, the tint also worked for my heavily-tanned friend as well when she used some of my sunscreen at the beach. When Stream2Sea says it works on most skin tones, they aren’t kidding.
Sarah M. (verified owner) –
This product is amazing and I can feel good about using it. I highly recommend it to anyone who is searching for a healthy sunscreen.
Melissa (verified owner) –
I will give the tinted 2 starts because I did not sunburn. I applied and left time to soak in, but the tint stained my swimwear and towel. New swimsuit now has brown streaks. Would recommend the regular but not the tinted. Now I have almost 2 whole tubes that will probably go to waste because I am not going to want to use it again. Ended up having to buy an off brand while we were at beach for the week. Again, it was great protection because I did not burn, but not happy about leaving brown streaks on everything.
Marcella H. (verified owner) –
I hope everyone will use this sunscreen too so we can help help reduce the destruction of our environment, especially the ocean.
Joel W. (verified owner) –
Tinted probably exists to counteract the white zinc appearance of the majority of environmentally friendly sunscreens, but it gives you the impression that you are wearing foundation or makeup on your body, and it looks strange when you are tanner than the tint.
Stephanie R. (verified owner) –
xThe fact that it won’t turn you into a ghost is the nicest part. However, it can smear bright clothing.
I’ve been using thisdaily for about 2 weeks now and I am in love with it! I have very acne prone skin and sunscreens always break me out, but I feel like my skin is actually so much clearer than usual! I did not burn, but I did end up with a tan/borderline minor burn on the top of my nose and forehead which is not bad for being out sweating at a tournament all day. I have been recommending to everyone I know!
Claude C. (verified owner) –
I went cruising on the Bahamas and since I wanted to use reef friendly products, I decided to buy this sunscreen from Stream2Sea. I love how effective the sunscreen is. It’s good that it’s tinted because it will not make you look white like other normal sunscreens do but the fact that it stains my swimsuits and clothes doesn’t make the tint to be worth it. I will just buy the untinted version of this sunscreen. Although it is pricey for me, I won’t mind, as long as I know I am using a environmental friendly product.
Colleen p. (verified owner) –
I love the tinted sunscreen. I am not a wearer of much makeup but I feel great using this product. It blends beautifully and I feel protected along with having a nice glow. It is perfect for my snorkel excursions where it is so important to use reef friendly products.
Crystal C. (verified owner) –
I really love the product for daily usage and have found that it is great for protection. When using it provides just a bit of color which evens out my tone and really provides a great way to see your coverage. It feels nice on the skin and quickly moves from tacky to a dry finish which allows me to really work with the product but not feel the product when wearing it. My only downside was that reapplication to the face can become a bit heavy when you have more oily areas and that when outdoors all day and reapplying every 80 minutes to the face itself it becomes a bit discoloring from uneven absorption. This was not an issue with my body only the face. Still with this being said I LOVE the product and will continue to use it, just perhaps substituting reapplication of face with a non-tinted version of the product.
Kathleen (verified owner) –
Great product. I am a true believer in it. The fact that its tinted makes it not appear white and chalky. Love it!

Great tip, Crystal! We are working on some processes to improve the color dispersion too (always learning, always striving for improvement).

My wife love this sunscreen because its shade is perfect on her skin. It is easy to apply and feels nice too.
Jill B. (verified owner) –
The tinted sunscreen works well and went on evenly. The only thing to note is that it does leave residue on clothing, so I had to be careful when putting on and taking off clothing. I believe it comes out in the wash.
Cody C. (verified owner) –
I did a ton of research on reef-safe sunscreens, and while they all had different reviews, I decided to use this one for my face. Worked flawlessly and prevented me from burning over a week-long trip to Hawaii that involved numerous trips to the beach. I only used it on my face because, as other people have noted, it will transfer and get on your clothing.
Leticia B. (verified owner) –
Both my clients and I use this product and we all love it!
Jonah P. (verified owner) –
This product is amazing! I first got it at my local organic market and the coverage is so good, found the website to order more. It’s great to wear any day. On the beach, out and about. On top of that it’s being conscientious about the environment with a flawless look, won‘t ever go without this as part of my skincare routine. Should have got the bulk size to use on my body for the beach!
Chris G. (verified owner) –
I love this product! I use it as my foundation make up and sunscreen. It has an amazing coverage.

I use this sunscreen together with my make up and I really love it!
Myron E. (verified owner) –
Works great but expect that it won’t rub on your skin because it is very thick and tinted.
Shelley H. (verified owner) –
This is product can easily fit on my mom’s purse and she used it everyday.
Brittany D. (verified owner) –
The tinted sunscreen is a great substitute for foundation. I tend to wear less makeup, especially on summer days, so it is nice to add some coverage and also protect my face. I do not recommend using this as an all over sunscreen though, as I treat it like makeup. The color can stain swimsuits and clothing, and towels, especially white ones. Love Stream2Sea products and I think the tinted sunscreen is great.
This is the best thing I’ve ever found for my skin.
I use this daily for my makeup and I set it with a lightly tinted powder. This keeps me from “whiting out” flash photography. I use it for sunscreen in the summer as well. I found this product through EarthX in Dallas. “All waters head toward the seas” still is a profound message to me. It is only right to work to not pollute our oceans constantly. Not sometimes, not with some products, but all. This product in particular leaves my skin very smooth feeling and since I have dry skin I have never had an issue with any product oil mentioned in other reviews.
I use this product daily, including when I volunteer doing heavy work like trail maintenance or trash pick up and when I work with wildlife. It does not smudge if I set it, and it takes very very little powder to set this product.
I have fair skin
Brown hair with red undertones
Cool skin undertones
And overall very dry skin

I love the tinted sunscreen. The white sunscreen works, but this one blends better and even makes a great foundation. I’ve never burned when using it, even when working on boats in direct sunlight all day.
Destiny F. (verified owner) –
Great product, in the Caribbean sun 10 days without a hit of pink. One tip to beware of is if you wear light colored clothes or swimwear, it will wipe off and turn your clothing/swimwear brown during reapplication. Not a pretty sight with a white swimsuit, it does wash out with soap. Next purchase with will non-tinted for this reason.
Elizabeth B. (verified owner) –
Love this sunscreen so much!
M. W. (verified owner) –
I was initially a little taken aback by the thickness because it made me feel like I was donning coverup, but it held up fantastically in the water and provided excellent protection.

We found this product when we went on a vacation to Hawaii and ever since, my family and I never use other products again.
Sarah W. (verified owner) –
LOVE LOVE LOVE this sunscreen! I bought it for family beach days, but love it so much I now use it daily to replace the powder foundation I had before. It goes on smoothly, sinks into my skin, has enough color to even out skin tone but not look heavy, doesn’t make me break out like 99% of the other lotion sunscreens I’ve tried. This stuff is gold.
Tara G. (verified owner) –
It should only be used on the face because it stains clothing. I no longer use my BB cream, though, as it makes my skin appear even more dewy. The fact that this product is reef-safe and biodegradable is the main reason why I purchased this.
Sam (verified owner) –
I am somewhat obsessed with finding the perfect sunscreen. This sunscreen checks all of my boxes and for a competitive price! I have fair skin with pink undertones, and it completely matches and evens out my skin tone. The tinted effect typically lasts 8+ hours for me without sweating. It gives a glowy/dewy finish, but you can make it matte with a bit of powder. I find the tinted sunscreen applies easier than their regular sunscreen. Only con is it transfers on clothing or materials if you’re not careful. This company has honorable values and a great product. I highly recommend this product!
Pauline W. (verified owner) –
This covers and applies like clay. It is thick and gives the skin a pasty tint. I needed to scrub to get it off. I don’t prefer this product.
Hannah C. –
The tint is perfect! I tried both the regular sunscreen and the tint. Both get the job done but if you’re new to mineral sunscreen and unaware of (or just dislike) the white sheen you get, this tinted one takes care of that.
Colleen H. (verified owner) –
I prefer to apply it only on my body since it doesn’t seem to blend well on my face. On the other hand, it provides a good sun protection.
Andre D. (verified owner) –
When I first applied this I thought I was going to return it. Then I saw the enclosed instructions for how to apply to the face : ) This product offers nice coverage and stays on all day. I bought the trial size just to test it out but will be purchasing the large size and the eco stick as well- so glad I found this item, love it!!
Great product! This is a perfect stocking stuffer for myself and my two eco concerned daughters!
I’ve been looking for a sunscreen for my face that won’t end up in my eyes and this one is perfect. The tint is really flattering and subtle, there’s no scent. I use it as my everyday sunscreen whether I’m going in the water or not.
This is my 2nd tube of tinted sunscreen. It is the only one I have found that doesn’t break my super sensitive skin out. I recommend to anyone who asks about my skincare routine!!
Jerrine C. (verified owner) –
Meets so many criteria, doesn’t sting, eco-socially responsibly company, safe product. Thank you!
Sue (verified owner) –
I have been using a tinted sunscreen produced by Clinique for years, but it is not reef friendly. I was searching for something that would do both and found this. I decided to give it a try and I love it! It goes on smooth, is not greasy, and protected me very well. It will protect the creatures of the sea too, so it is definitely win-win.
Sue D. (verified owner) –
I had been using another tinted sunscreen but I understood that it was not good for the reefs. I searched online and found this product. I tried it and am sold! It goes on smooth and blends very well. Thank you for caring for us and all our sea creature cousins.
I’ve used this a couple times – goes on smooth, rubs in well, and no skin redness after a couple sunny days. I was very careful applying it after reading reviews about staining and seeing the “heads up” about possible staining on the actual container.
Stream2sea is easy to apply and blends to my skin tone. Will buy again!
This formulation blends well and doesn’t give the white mineral sunscreen look. It’s reef safe and I use it every time before scuba diving!
M. B. –
This tinted sunscreen is amazing…I use it on my face a d neck…works amazing d it isnt harmful
Rick B. (verified owner) –
Simple to put on. Just be mindful that because it’s colored, it can ruin your bathing suit. I liked that it was coloured rather than the usual white zinc oxide since it looked better! It is required to have reef safe products on the beach that we went to in Mexico that’s why we purchsaed this.
Kate P. (verified owner) –
Brilliant ingredients, easy to apply, no ugly residue. No guilt!
I will never use any other sunscreen and then this one. It is so underrated and one of the best mineral sunscreens I have ever used. The majority I have tried have a chalky residue so I am very glad I gave this brand a try and fell in love. This is one of the most rare brands that also have non nano technology
Dianna H. –
Love the tinted sun screen. I use it on my face and it really works well.
Cindy N. (verified owner) –
I have sensitive fair skin and only use zinc or titanium-and I was so happy to find a tinted version that blends better with ski tone and stays put in water. As a diver and ocean swimmer I wanted a reef safe product and can’t be happier than I am to use this product. It is also moisturizing. Just take care to wash with a cloth and soap as it can rub off on white towels if not cleaned off well at the end of the day.
Gracie G. (verified owner) –
It is a win-win all around. It applies so smoothly, really matches my fair skin tone well, and actually works! Plus it is honestly eco friendly…you can not go wrong!
Alexandra (verified owner) –
I’ve tried many reef-safe sunscreens over the last few years and this is my absolute favorite. It doesn’t feel greasy, doesn’t smell too “sunscreeny”, and doesn’t drip into my eyes. I’m fairly pale, but the tint still blends well into my skin – whereas most reef-safe sunscreens are so white I get a purple tint on my skin. I was also able to use this for my niece, who has had allergic reactions to most other sunscreens, and she had no reactions at all. 11/10
Leroy L. (verified owner) –
This product provides a good coverage and works great.You should be cautious when applying this product to clothing and vehicle seats because it rubs.

I love the tinted sunscreen! It worked fantastically on a canoe trip and for every day wear. I don’t need makeup, just use the tinted sunscreen!

I ordered this for my husband who surfs every day there’s waves and has been surfing for over 55 years. This keeps him well protected from UV rays and lasts an entire session. I feel good knowing he’s protected and we’re taking care of our ocean too!

Absolutely love this! I needed something that stays on and really works when I’m outside at the barn all day. My face especially thanks me and it goes on so easily.
