Chemical pollution from sunscreen contributes to coral bleaching in our oceans. Made in collaboration with Stream2Sea using EcoSafe Zinc™, this 100% mineral-based broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen balm is scientifically formulated to be safe for both humans and coral reefs.

Already a favorite among divers, ocean conservationists, and the 4ocean crew, this powerfully effective formula is non-greasy, applies sheer, won’t burn your eyes, and is water resistant up to 80 minutes.

Made and packaged right here in Florida, our reef-safe sunscreen comes in an infinitely reusable and recyclable aluminum tin for sun protection that’s good for you, our coral reefs, and our planet.

We know it's the "BALM"...
Don't Take Our Word for It.

Formulated with 100% safe ingredients

We're so proud of our ingedients, we want to show you what they look like so you know exactly what's going on your body.

EcoSafe Zinc

EcoSafe Zinc is the only non-nano zinc oxide that has passed a full range of aquatic safety trials and does not adversely affect the pH of the environment.

In addition to being EcoCert compliant, this formula is minimally whitening, aesthetically pleasant even on melanin-rich skin, and still holds up to the most extreme conditions.

Sweet Almond Oil 

Sweet almond oil (Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis) is an emollient that comes from the dried kernel of the almond tree. Rich in vitamins A, E, and B as well as essential fatty acids, this lightweight oil nourishes skin, is easily absorbed, and won’t clog pores.

Sunflower Seed Oil 

Sunflower seed oil (Helianthus Annus) is an emollient that comes from sunflower seeds. High in Vitamin E as well as linoleic and oleic fatty acids, this oil is an excellent moisturizer that absorbs quickly.

Beeswax

Beeswax (Cera Alba) is a thickening agent made by wildcrafted bees to build the walls of their honeycomb. Our sustainably-sourced beeswax is a gorgeous golden yellow color, smells of honey, and is used to enhance the water resistance of our formula. It also offers additional emollient and emulsifying properties.

Jojoba Esters 

The buttery esters from jojoba oil improve the feel of our hair and skin with no greasy feeling. Because jojoba oil is molecularly similar to our skin’s sebum oil, it can be used to balance our natural oil production.

Sorbitan Olivate 

Naturally derived from sorbitol and olives, our EcoCert-approved sorbitan olivate functions as an emulsion stabilizer that also moisturizes and improves the skin’s ability to retain water for superior hydration.

Polyhydroxystearic Acid 

An excellent dispersant and stabilizer, this vegetable-derived ester coats our zinc oxide to enhance its stability and aquatic safety. Our EcoCert-approved polyhydroxystearic acid improves the spreadability of our formula and aids in UV absorption.

Plant-based Squalane 

Found naturally in human sebum as well as plants like olives and sugarcane, squalane is another emollient we use to ensure our formula is soothing, moisturizing, and nourishing to your skin.

Some forms of squalane are obtained from shark liver oil, which is why it’s important to always question the source of any product containing squalane! Ultimately, plant-based squalane is more stable, more compatible, and definitely more sustainable than the marine-derived ingredient with the same name.

Silica

This naturally-occurring powder reduces oiliness and helps provide even distribution of minerals when applying our sunscreen balm.

Mixed Tocopherols (Vitamin E)

A powerful antioxidant, our plant-based, non-GMO Vitamin E protects the skin from free radicals while preventing the oxidation and rancidity of the other oils in our reef-safe sunscreen balm.

EcoSafe Zinc

EcoSafe Zinc is the only non-nano zinc oxide that has passed a full range of aquatic safety trials and does not adversely affect the pH of the environment.

COMPETITOR

“As a diver and Florida native, I have personally witnessed the decline of our reefs over the last 25 years. The scariest part is that decline is accelerating at a crazy pace. I do not believe that toxic sunscreens are the largest contributor to reef decline, but they absolutely DO contribute and it is such an easy problem to eliminate.

Our reefs need every chance they can get to survive, and if we can easily eliminate one of the stressors, I believe it is our duty to do so.”

Wear it everywhere you need sun protection

Did you know that modern wastewater treatments don’t remove oxybenzone or other harmful chemical ingredients from water before it’s discharged?

That’s why the sunscreen you choose matters whether you live 10 minutes from the beach or 10,000 miles.

We believe ALL water deserves to be protected, so our sunscreen has been tested for biodegradability, aquatic toxicity, and coral reef safety in both fresh and saltwater environments.

    Honestly, I am always skeptical on mineral sunscreens if they actually work. This was an amazing surprise. It truly dries sheer, doesn't have an odor and doesn't burn your eyes if you start to sweat with it on! Definitely recommend reapplying when it states it because it works better at preventing burns. The cause is also wonder and does not have all those chemicals that other sunscreens have!!! 11/10 recommend. I also use it as my workout/running sunscreen for those Florida days.

    Love it!

    It makes me feel really good about using it because it is protecting the coral reefs we know and love. I love knowing that I am helping to make an impact towards helping the ocean. The sunscreen worked well and did not irritate my skin at all!

    Safe from the sun, and safe reefs!

    I had a free diving trip to the Florida keys reef. This sun cream is creamy and easy to spread, didn’t leave a white cast and kept me and our reef safe. Plus the packaging is a tin so it’s plastic free. 10/10
