Product Description
Seavenger.com is your jellyfish sting prevention and treatment headquarters. Not only are we the BEST SOURCE for products such as SeaSea Protective Lotions in all SPFs from O – 50 Sunscreens, and After Sting Gel from Tender Corporation, we are virtually THE ONLY SOURCE for these dive essentials.

SafeSea Jellyfish Sting Protective Lotions might very well be the best-selling item in our entire store. Customers are so satisfied with this product, they buy it by the case-loads.

Jellyfish tentacles and other stinging marine organisms contain hundreds of thousands of stinging capsules (cells) which are activated by physical contact between prey (or human skin) and these cells. These cells contain shafts and tubules that inject poison into the skin causing pain, redness, and rash. Safe Sea® has been scientifically developed to prevent the stings of most jellyfish (including Atlantic Box jellyfish and Rhopilema), Sea Nettle and Seabathers Eruption (commonly known as sea lice).

SafeSea Lotions are not only biodegradable and waterproof, they will have no toxic effects on the environment or even harm the jellyfish themselves.

 Why take the chance? Safe Sea is a convenient and effective way to protect your family from jellyfish, sea lice, sea nettles, and most other ocean stingers!



Safe Sea is clinically proven to protect against many common varieties of stinging marine life. There are over 13,000 species of marine stingers in the ocean, and over 200 million beachgoers around the globe are exposed to marine stingers each year.


Along the US coastline, more than a million people are stung every year by sea lice, sea nettles, and other marine stingers.



Safe Sea helps protect against the painful stings caused by these marine organisms, and many more:


  • Jellyfish (Not yet tested against Portuguese Man O'War or Box Jellyfish.)
  • Sea Lice
  • Fire Coral
  • Sea Nettle



Jellyfish Stings: Hi-tech Micro injections


Jellyfish, sea lice, sea nettle, coral, sea anemone and other organisms which belong to the phylum cnidaria family are all equipped with stinging cells. These stinging cells consist of a capsule containing a condensed highly folded eversible needle with potent toxins. The discharge of this needle is driven by the building up of a high internal hydrostatic pressure of 200 atmospheres. This pressure is about 100 times the pressure in a car tire and is similar to the pressure that exists in scuba diving tanks.

When jellyfish come into contact with their target, the folded needle is fired from the capsule at accelerations of up to 40,000xg, similar to the acceleration of a shell being fired from a cannon. 

The jellyfish toxins are delivered into the prey through the needle which resembles a multi-headed poisonous arrow.




Jellyfish stinging mechanism



A: Jellyfish and jellyfish tentacles

B: Tentacles and stinging clusters

C: Clusters with hundreds of stinging mechanisms

D: Cluster with stinging capsules and folded needles

E: Resting and discharge stinging mechanism


How Jellyfish Sting:


A. Stimulants from the skin initiate 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 poison into the body.


Keep ocean lovers in the water and out of agony with Safe Sea lotion to prevent jellyfish stings.



How Safe Sea Lotion Works:


Safe Sea protect against jellyfish stings in several ways:



Safe Sea lotion works by inactivating the stinging cells in several biochemical sites. It reduces tentacle skin attachments, mimics jellyfish self-recognition, blocks stinging cells activation, and interferes with the cellular signal, reducing the internal osmotic pressure in the nematocyst capsule.

In less scientific words:

The Safe Sea lotion's slippery texture makes it difficult for the stinging tentacles to get a grip.

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

Other inhibitors (stoppers) block the chemical pathway

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




Question How many ounces is the bottle? Trying to figure out if I get through in my carry on suitcase.

Answer Is 4 ounces.

Question I've purchased and used the product before and I am quite happy with it. However, on the label of the bottle I have it says "jellyfish & sea lice safe sun block" but the new label only mentions jellyfish sting protection. Is it the same for both jellyfish stings AND sea lice?
Answer Yes it is, Sea Lice Protection is still stated on the bottle.

Question my son crabs. the pots come up covered with them. not sure what kind of jellyfish. we are in Southern NJ. how often could this product be used in one day. is there any protective clothing that could be worn to help. we have been told to put stockings on his arms, they cant stick to it or sting through it is there any other thing that may help
thank you
michele yoshida

Answer Safe Sea will help him for sure or he can get a Long sleeve rash guard or wetsuit.


Strong recommend for the Safe Sea lotions.

Here is the one made for kids.

Good stuff! It really works for protection from jellies and is a good sunblock. Every summer we go to a southern beach that is often invaded by jellies. The jelly dance goes on all around us by folks who had the misfortune of jelly contact. Those of us using Safe Sea just continue swimming and playing in the surf.
