Paraben Free

Parabens are synthetic chemical preservatives, commonly used in beauty products like shampoo, lotion, and deodorants. Parabens can accumulate in your body, and have been linked to hormonal disruption and reproductive problems. In studies of breast cancer patients, parabens have been found in the tissue of cancerous tumors–yikes! If you want to avoid Parabens in your beauty products, keep an eye out for methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, and ethylparaben in the ingredients list.

Phthalate Free

Phthalates are found in toys, electronics, personal care products, plastic wraps, containers, and more. These petroleum based chemicals help soften plastics, and bind fragrances to perfumes, deodorants, creams, and other personal care products. Phthalates are are not chemically bound, meaning they can easily get released into the air, water, or your body, just by using the products as intended. Phthalates have been found to disrupt the endocrine system, which can cause reproductive damage, hormonal imbalances, infertility, mood changes, metabolism changes, and more.

Organic Content

Organic materials and ingredients are grown without the use of chemical pesticides or fertilizers, promoting a healthier use of land and decreasing harmful agricultural runoff. By steering clear of toxic chemicals, farm workers experience less exposure to hazardous conditions, promoting social responsibility as well as environmental stewardship. Choosing organic materials eliminates the use of insecticides and other harmful chemicals, promotes efficient resource use, and results in a safer products and a cleaner planet!

1% for the Planet

This company partners with 1% for the Planet, a nonprofit organization that helps promote environmental stewardship. Members commit to donating at least 1% of their sales to the program, which helps connect them to high-impact environmental nonprofits across the globe.

Made in the USA

This product was made in the United States. Buying locally made items helps to reduce harmful emissions that result from transportation during and after the production process. Purchasing products made in the United States also ensures that the items are produced in ways that meet strict safety and labor standards.

Plant Based Resin

Plant Based Resins are used as an alternative to fully-synthetic plastics. Instead of using Petroleum as the main base ingredient to form plastic, some companies have started replacing a portion of the ingredients with plant and vegetable extracts. This lowers the amount of resources extracted to create purely synthetic products, and often provides a use for agricultural byproducts such as corn or flax. Some plant based resins are made from 100% plant materials, and can be composted in industrial facilities. EarthHero recommends checking with your local compost facility to determine which items are safe to compost.

About the Company

Stream2Sea

Fact: Over 6,000 TONS of skin care products enter coral reefs from tourist activities alone. And that’s not counting the products that enter our rivers, lakes and streams through runoff, sewage, and more. Stream2Sea knows that what we put into our water matters, which is why they’ve formulated their products without benzophenones, oxybenzones, octinoxate, or parabens, ensuring the highest quality sunscreen for you–without damaging sensitive marine life. Plus, there’s no nanoparticles, fragrances, phthalates, aerosols, or other yucky additives that they’ve found don’t benefit our reefs or bodies.

Not only is Stream2Sea great for the reefs, but it’s a sunscreen that truly works to stop sunburns. All of their sunscreens exceed the FDA’s rating for 80-minute water resistance, and don’t run into your eyes (or the ocean) if you sweat or swim. Any sunscreen residue that may come off in the waters is 100% biodegradable in both saltwater and freshwater, as well as non-toxic for fish and coral. As a vegan and mineral based sunscreen, Stream2Sea sunscreens actually reflect the sun’s harmful rays, instead of absorb them, and are gentle enough to be used on babies and children. With their 100% recyclable tubes made from sugarcane resins, they have completely eliminated harmful plastics from their production, and use eco-friendly inks and recycled paper products for any brochures, cartons, or other documents.

    Question

    Ashley

    Does Sream2Sea test on animals? I noticed they do not have the bunny symbol in their list of symbols. They also do not call it out on their list of Sustainability features.

      Hi Ashley, great question!

      Stream2Sea does perform a small amount of testing on fish and coral, but hear us out: EarthHero does not normally sell products that are tested on animals in any form. However, we stand behind Stream2Sea’s research and reasoning. Here’s a quick excerpt from Stream2Sea’s founder, Autumn Blum:

      “Part of Stream2Sea’s business model is total transparency with our followers. In that light, I felt it was important to share more about the tough decisions we’ve had to make about product testing on live species. We’ve discovered the hard way that just because a product is safe for people doesn’t mean it’s safe in an aquatic ecosystem. The only way to determine if our products are harmful to fish and other aquatic life is to test them on living animals.

      From the beginning, I knew that we would have to test on fish and coral to create a product line that would not only limit its impact on our waters, but would set a new standard for future products looking to do the same. It doesn’t mean I have to like it.

      Why Live Testing Matters
      We need to be able to stand behind our product when we say they are EcoConscious and the most coral reef safe, lake safe and stream safe product line available. We need to be able to say, “We did the hard testing; we pushed that testing to the highest possible concentrations, and it WON’T kill fish or knowingly harm marine ecosystems.”

      There is a very real threat that skin care products are causing damage to the delicate ecosystems in our planet’s waters—and we need to develop products with as much certainty as possible that they won’t hurt the creatures they come into contact with, including coral.

      So … we test our products to ensure they will not be harmful to fish and other aquatic life as used. We are adamantly against animal testing where there are in vitro alternatives. At this time, however, there are no cellular cultures or models to replicate aquatic toxicity testing to the extent we need.”
