Protecting yourself against the sun’s harmful UV rays is always important, especially during warmer months when you’re spending more time outdoors. Since it was founded, Raw Elements has made its sunscreens with a specific goal in mind: to provide all-natural, long-lasting, and effective alternatives to other brands. Raw Elements makes products that are geared toward active lifestyles, meaning they do not dissipate or wash off the skin as quickly as other brands.
The History of Raw Elements
Having spent much of his life working as a lifeguard, Brian Duadagno founded Raw Elements in 2011 in response to his concerns about existing sunscreen label claims compared to their actual ability to keep UV rays at bay and protect users from developing skin cancer. In particular, Duadagno said that his goal at the time was to develop a sunscreen made in an eco-friendly manner using all natural, certified organic ingredients that provided top-level broad spectrum protection against UV rays.
Today, Raw Elements offers a variety of skin protectants, repellents and other care products that are made according to these standards, and the company has also committed itself to environmental awareness causes. For example, the company founded World Reef Day in 2019 as a means of drawing attention to the negative impact of single-use plastics on coral reefs when they find their way into oceans, as Raw Elements makes products that are either 100% or almost entirely plastic-free. Before that, the company had joined the cause 1% for the Planet.
Raw Elements Company Mission
While Raw Elements has always produced sun care products that are geared for active consumers and athletes alike, free of unsafe properties and provide the highest level of UV protection, the company has expanded upon its initial message. As of today, the company has placed an emphasis on selling products made using clean and sustainable methods and products to best protect the health of both consumers and the planet at-large.
Raw Elements Benefits
Compared to most sunscreen products, those sold by Raw Elements offer numerous benefits and advantages. To start, Raw Elements is the only company with an entire line of sunscreen and skin care products that are Non-GMO Project Verified. Its products are also Leaping Bunny-certified and tested on humans, EWG #1 Rated, Natural Products Association-certified and made completely in America. Further advantages include the fact that they are hypoallergenic, chemical-free, offered for all ages, don’t run (especially into the eyes), and last longer on the skin while in water or when exposed to sweat. Along with plastic pollution, sunscreens that wash off in the ocean can also have a negative impact on the environment. In addition, the only active ingredient included in products is non-nano zinc oxide (23%).
