One of the most talked-about and fastest growing lines in today’s recreational scuba diving industry is Stream2Sea. These biodegradable and mineral-based sunscreen and skincare products have developed a strong following among the growing number of eco-friendly divers and dive professionals who want to protect the coral and marine environments from harmful chemicals that are contributing to the decline of important aquatic areas we all enjoy.
For a limited time, dive retailers and resorts can join the movement toward safer and more vibrant marine environments by adding the complete line of Stream2Sea eco-conscious products to their store’s offerings. Between now and July 31, retailers adding Stream2Sea to their inventory for the first time will receive a 20 percent discount on all orders over $200.
Stream2Sea has been working in the dive community for several years and the company’s message is gaining momentum from coast to coast AND around the world. Stream2Sea sunscreen and body care products are formulated by Autumn Blum, a cosmetic chemist and dive instructor who has been an ambassador to the oceans and marine life throughout her award-winning career. She created Stream2Sea specifically to protect the coral reefs, marine life, waters (both fresh and salt) and the health of people.
“We have known for a long time how important it is to protect our skin from the sun,” Blum explains. “But it’s only been in the last few years research has shown how devastating certain chemicals contained in sunscreens can be on coral reefs and marine life worldwide.” Blum singled out Oxybenzone as one such chemical that has been proven to destroy coral reefs. Stream2Sea has helped promote legislation in Hawaii to help ban this destructive ingredient.
Many Eco-Conscious Dive Centers have already taken up the Stream2Sea message by offering their dive customers the opportunity to protect the environment WHILE they protect their skin. Stream2Sea offers a complete line of highly water resistant SPF 20 and SPF 30 sunscreens, conditioning shampoo and bodywash, sun and sting relief gel, leave-in conditioner, and protectant lip balms.
