Biodegradable Sunscreens & Bodycare Must Be Tested to Determine Safety
Stream2Sea products are made with Natural Ingredients. They are biodegradable, reef safe and chemical free.
Certain ingredients in sunscreens like oxybenzone, avobenzone and octinoxate are toxic to corals and reef fish, but are still in products that are falsely labeled as reef safe and biodegradable.
In Protect Land and Sea Certification program, they don’t ask the manufacturer to verify or certify that their product is pure of HEL List chemicals and ingredients, as many other programs do. Instead, the entire product is put to the test – chemical analysis testing under “forensic” methodology. They then vet the products to be free of HEL List ingredients that may act as environmental pollutants.
Each ingredient in Stream2Sea products are consciously chosen! Stream2Sea has put together this ingredient dictionary to help you understand the logic behind the ingredients in their mineral sunscreens and natural skincare products.
Did you know that there are no federal regulations defining the use of words like ‘natural’ or ‘green’ when it pertains to biodegradable sunscreens, body care products or cosmetics? Some brands will add a very small percentage of an ingredient in their products, then put safe, natural, green or organic on the label; a misleading practice that means products are not actually safe for your body or our planet.
Read the ingredients panel of every product you choose to use. Below is a growing list of some harmful (yet popular) body care and sunscreen ingredients to avoid.
Stream2Sea works hard to ensure that their products are safe not only for you and your family, but also for the sustainability of our planet. To reduce our impact on the environment, Stream2Sea makes sure that their packaging is as green and sustainable as the products themselves.
