WHY IS RAW ELEMENTS USA SUNSCREEN THE SAFEST?

  • #1 Rating for Safety & Efficacy from The Environmental Working Group.  Top in Class in over 1,800 U.S. Sunscreen Products.What does this mean? Each year the EWG reviews over 1800 SPF products in the US market. Each individual active and inactive ingredient are rated for safety. 1 being the safest and 10 being the most hazardous. The overall SFP product is then rated for safety and efficacy from 1 to 10. 1 being the safest and most effective. 10 being the most hazardous and least effective. The efficacy of the product is based on an evaluation of its ability to provide balanced broad spectrum protection, photo- stability, lasting protection and a UVA to UVB ratio. In both the 2015 EWG Sunscreen report, over 80% of US sunscreens contained harmful ingredients, provided inadequate protection or both. RAW ELEMENTS USA products proudly carry that #1 rating.              
  • RAW ELEMENTS USA Sunscreen uses only certified natural, uncoated, recycled, Non Nano Zinc Oxide as the Active Ingredient.  A Nano Particle is considered to have a particle size of less than 100 nanometers. The overwhelming international scientific data clearly indicates that Zinc Oxide nano particles sit on top of the skin surface and do not penetrate into living skin tissue. That said, we choose to utilize Zinc Oxide with a particle size of over 100nm. Furthermore, there is enough evidence which questions the safety profiles of other such Chemical UV Absorbers that we do not find their use acceptable. Our proprietary Zinc Oxide is photo-stable, where many Chemical UV Absorbers are not and can only absorb a certain amount of radiation before breaking down.
  • 100% All Natural and Certified Organic Inactive Ingredients.  RAW ELEMENTS USA is NPA Certified Natural Sunscreen.  All formulas contain over 94%  certified organic in active ingredients.  We choose each individual Certified Organic ingredient for their specific properties. They all contribute unparalleled moisturizing properties along with antioxidants while protecting the skin from tough environmental exposure. Certified Organic Ingredients must be free from any synthetics, pesticides or chemicals during the growing and cultivating process.
  • Non-GMO Project Verified.  RAW ELEMENTS USA is the only fully verified sunscreen line on the market.  Every individual ingredient goes through a stringent evaluation process by the Project for verification.  The process for our Certified Organic Beeswax took over one year in validation.  Our sunscreen ingredients are completely free of Genetically Modified Organisms. 
  • Hypoallergenic, Safe For All Ages and Sensitive Skin.  Many people experience reactions and allergies to chemical active and inactive ingredients in sunscreens. RAW ELEMENTS USA formulas are ideal for children and sensitive skin.  Zinc Oxide is a mineral which is an FDA category 1 skin protector. Zinc Oxide has long been used in infant skin care because of its gentle healing and protective qualities. Dermatologists suggest the use of Zinc Oxide in sun protection for children and people of all ages with sensitive skin.
  • Eco Safe, Reef Safe, Biodegradable and never Tests on Animals.  RAW ELEMENTS USA Sunscreen products only contain Organic and Natural ingredients and are Eco Safe, Reef Safe and Biodegradable. All formulas are Leaping Bunny Certified, cruelty free.  NOAA scientists have clearly identified the detrimental effects of chemical sunscreen ingredients on our coral reefs and suggest the use of Zinc Oxide Sunscreens for reef safety.

WHY IS RAW ELEMENTS USA SUNSCREEN THE MOST EFFECTIVE?

  • Balanced Broad Spectrum Protection – UVA/UVB Rays.   RAW ELEMENTS USA Sunscreen provides the highest levels of Balanced Broad Spectrum Protection from both UVA & UVB rays, blocking over 95% of the entire UV range. Broad Spectrum is an FDA regulated term which refers to an ingredient, or a formulas ability to effectively absorb or physically scatter BOTH UVA and UVB rays. Our protection remains balanced across the board. Zinc Oxide is the only single FDA approved active ingredient which blocks UV radiation across the entire UVA/UVB spectrum. Zinc Oxide is considered to be a physical blocker sitting on top of the skin physically scattering UV radiation. Our Zinc Oxide is photo-stable and does not degrade under extended sun exposure.
  • Very Water and Sweat Resistant beyond 80 Minutes.  RAW ELEMENTS USA Sunscreen exceeds the FDA’s highest performance level of ‘Very Water Resistant’ and Sweat Resistant of 80 minutes. Our unique Organic Eco Shield Performance Technology is a specific combination of natural and organic raw ingredients and zinc oxide which delivers long lasting protection under the toughest environmental conditions. Our technology will allow your skin to breath and sweat while keeping the protection fixed on the surface of the skin. This same technology will keep the formula bonded to the skin during submersion of moving water.
  • Never Runs, Never Stings Eyes or Clogs Pores.  Chemical sunscreen ingredients burning eyes is a very common problem. RAW ELEMENTS USA sunscreen eliminates this issue in two ways. First, the technology of the formula will remain fixed where it is applied, it is no migratory. Second, the absence of all of the chemical ingredients will keep the stinging away for even the most sensitive skin. This makes sunscreen use much more effective whether its for young child or a focused outdoor athlete.
  • Can Be Applied to Wet Skin & Even Under Water.   RAW ELEMENTS USA Sunscreen is the ultimate performance sunscreen.  All products can be applied to wet skin or even under water!  The sunscreen will stay put where it's applied, never run and never sting the eyes. RAW ELEMENTS USA will allow the outdoor enthusiast to keep our sunscreen with them no matter what the environmental conditions call for.
  • Delivers High Levels of Certified Organic Moisturizers and Antioxidants to the Skin.
    While our zinc oxide provides balanced broad spectrum protection from UVA & UVB rays, the rest of the raw ingredients battle environmental exposure. Each organic and natural ingredient is specifically selected to provide hydration, antioxidants, high levels of moisture, vitamins and minerals. These qualities battle the damage of the skin on the cellular level from free radicals generated by the sun and other carcinogens, long after environmental exposure.
