Innovative Technology by ‘Safe Sea’

Leveraging our deep understanding of nature and the environment, along with fundamental research in physics and biology, Safe Sea has been able to create unique, safe, and user-friendly sun protection products.

Jellyfish Sting Protection: Safe Sea stands as the only sunscreen globally that offers protection against jellyfish stings, ensuring ocean enthusiasts can enjoy their time in the water without the fear of discomfort.

Sun Protection: At Safe Sea, we utilize advanced research on sun radiation and photodamage to the skin to develop superior sun protection products for our customers and partners.

Clinical Trials: Safe Sea holds the unique distinction of being the only company worldwide with the expertise and approval to conduct clinical tests on preventing jellyfish stings in both clinical and ocean environments. These trials are conducted in accordance with FDA, EU, and Japanese regulations.

Scientific Articles: Safe Sea’s groundbreaking research has been published in Nature, the world’s leading life science journal. Studies conducted at Stanford University and other top-tier hospitals have been featured in scientific, medical, and cosmetics reports.

Packaging: At Safe Sea, we strive to provide the best service and solutions for our partners. Our R&D team has developed our sunscreen and dual protection products in various formats, including topical gel, lotion, cream, aerosol, and spray. These are packaged in quantities ranging from 50ml to one ton.

When there is contact between a tentacle and human skin, the stinging cells are activated and deploy their needles. Each needle penetrates the skin and injects its venom, generating pain, red marks, and rashes. 
A. Stimulants from the skin initiate the discharge process
B. High internal pressure of 200 atmospheres is built in the capsule
C. With 40,000xG of acceleration the needle drills a hole into the skin
D. A tubule follows the shaft and injects the venom into the body


Safe Sea contains unique and patented ingredients that protect against jellyfish stings in several ways:

The slippery texture makes it difficult for the stinging tentacles to get a grip.

Chemical (stoppers) in the lotion block up the sites where the stinging process is activated.

Other inhibitors (stoppers) block the chemical pathway.

Chemical stoppers reduce pressure in the stinging cells, preventing the jellyfish from firing its stings.

How does Safe Sea® stop the sting?

Too slippery: Safe Sea® has a waterproof, slippery texture that makes it difficult for the stinging tentacles to attach to the skin.

Taking a tip from our friend the Clown Fish: Safe Sea® technology absorbs secretions from the skin that would otherwise tell the jellyfish that it’s in contact with prey or predator.

Disrupt communication: Chemical stoppers in Safe Sea® block the chemical pathways where the stinging mechanism is activated.

Disarm: A stinging cell is a dense “capsule” containing a long folded needle. Pressure builds in this capsule just before stinging. As the pressure builds, the capsule is forced open, and the arrow shoots out, injecting its target with toxin at a force equivalent to a shot being fired from a gun. This all happens in a fraction of a second; jellyfish stings are among the most rapid mechanical events in all of cellular biology. Safe Sea® reduces the pressure in stinging cells to not fire – effectively disarming them.
