|"I hardly ever used sunscreen and was always scared to put it on my children because of fear of all the chemicals, I just took ‘the burn’. I have finally partnered up with a chemical free sunscreen that can keep up with me and I can stand behind. I have tested this stuff all over the world, in the most extreme conditions mother nature has to offer. The performance is unreal. Even after long sessions and giant wave poundings it doesn’t move and never stings my eyes.
-Garret McNamara, Extreme Big Wave Champion
|"Savannah and I are on the water every day in the hot Caribbean sun. We have to protect our skin and Raw Elements does the job! We reapply and we don’t leave home with out it!"
-Heather Baus, Professional Stand Up Paddle Racer
|"I swear I’ve never tried anything like this, I’ve never got sunburn and I spend a lot of hours in the South Beach sun."
-Andreas Olesen, Professional Volleyball Athlete & Coach
“At last, the best mineral zinc oxide sunscreen product proven not to run into and sting your eyes – even when you’re wet! I’ve searched for years for a trustworthy mineral zinc oxide sunscreen that never migrates into the eyes during prolonged wet and sweaty conditions for my athletic dermatology patients. At last I’ve found it! I tested Raw Elements Eco Stick on my husband, a diver, on his last dive trip. It worked perfectly! No stinging in the dive mask, no tan, no sunburn and no thick white goop all over his face. He was thrilled. I used it snorkeling and it worked beautifully for my sensitive skin too.
This is the next generation of sunscreen products. Cyclists, divers, soccer players, marathon runners, tennis players and other sports enthusiasts spend lots of ‘wet and sweaty’ time in the sun. Over the years they’ve asked me to find them a sunscreen with the mineral zinc oxide protection I want them to have. They want a product that doesn’t run into and sting their eyes, and that doesn’t make them look like a clown. Believe me I’ve been looking. Finally I’ve found it”
- it’s Raw Elements Sunscreen Stick!
“No matter where I’m surfing in the world, I can count on raw elements to protect me from the sun’s harsh rays. When I leave the house I grab my board and my raw elements sunblock stick, and I know I’m covered.”
-Scott Posner, Pro Surfer
“As a multiple melanoma survivor and long distance runner living under the brutal son of Las Vegas, sunscreen is a necessity. Raw Elements gives me that feeling of protection under the desert sun that I know will stay on as I sweat through hard workouts. The Eco Stick is small enough to carry in my running shorts for when I need to reapply during those long runs. It’s also comforting to know that Raw Elements is safe for the environment and chemical free. The personal attention and customer service is second to none. I simply love Raw Elements.”
-Kristie Cranford- Chair, Long Distance Running. USA Track & Field Nevada
“I am a 60 year old woman from RI and recently vacationed in South Beach, Florida in April of 2010. I was prevy to a new, all natural product called, “Raw Elements which really protects your skin while in the sun. Normally,when I go to the beach I am very uncomfortable no matter what kind of precautions I take, (hat, umbrella, cover up) I love the beach but the sun is my worst enemy. I also have a skin condition called rosasia and I’m sun sensitive due to medications I take which makes my flare ups even worse. I can not use an SPF higher than 15 on my face due to the fact that it actually burns my skin from the chemicals it contains. I have never used a product that truly worked for me except for, “Raw Elements.” I applied it 3 times during the day and stayed at the beach for 5 hours, going into the water, walking the beach and sitting under an umbrella. I never had a flare up, got overheated as I normally do, or did my face or body burn. My face never even got stiff or tight as usual.I used it for the entire week I was there and was amazed how well the product worked. Not only did I love this product but the lip balm as well.I feel I can once again enjoy being in the sun doing what I like best, gardening, walking, beaching it, or bike riding without worry. Thank you, Raw Elements. Not only are you gentle on the skin but you work and work well! You are the sunprotection I’ve been waiting for. Kudos to the inventor.Can’t wait to tell all my friends back home.”
-Debbie, Educator from RI, Mother
“Each time a person sunburns to a peel, their risk of cancer increases by 50%. I’m 27 years old and basically grew up on the beach. Every summer I experience sunburn and peeling, and this past summer was the first that I had NOT peeled thanks to Raw Elements! This past spring in an attempt to have moles and birth marks checked on my back I saw a dermatologist. They removed a few from my back and said that sun exposure this summer would not be wise at all because the area was fairly “raw” and healing. I wanted to make sure that I took the necessary steps to protect my skin. I came across “RAW ELEMENTS” Eco Stick 30+ and found my answer to true skin protection has been solved! GOT RAW?”
-Nick, Health & Physical Education Teacher
“I feel that Raw Elements gives the StreetWaves family of surfers the added protection We need to stay in the sun as long as necessary to achieve our goal of keeping kids off the streets and into the waves!!!! Thanks Raw Elements for protecting Us everyday. Peace, Love and Waves.”
-Maui Goodbeer, Miami Beach Founder, CEO StreetWaves Corp.
“As both a lifeguard and a health care professional, I am acutely aware of the need for effective sun protection from both UVA and UVB rays. There is clear evidence that physical barrier protection, such as the protection provided by the zinc oxide in Raw Elements, is far superior to chemical sunscreens commonly found over-the-counter. What few people realize is that not all zinc oxide is created equal– a large degree of variability exists, particularly in terms of photostability and water resistance. This is where, for me, Raw Elements sets itself apart. You can wear it in the water for hours, or on the beach all day, and not have to sacrifice the level of protection you need, and you also know that you’re not absorbing preservatives like you would with other sunscreens. I use it, and I recommend it.”
-Jeremy, Lifeguard & Pharmacist
“Not once in the past decade of being a Water Safety Instructor and Professional Lifeguard have I come across something that performs like Raw Elements! This product kept myself and my team protected, so that we were able to protect others all summer! Raw Elements has proven to be the most consistent protection that I have ever used. Being 100% Natural, I feel comfortable putting Raw Elements on my body. Sun Safety is one less thing that I need to be worried about on busy days at the beach when I am wearing Raw Elements; once it on…It’s on!”
-Dave Cannon, Oceanfront Director, High School Educator
“A combination of dangerous surf and sunny skies create the busiest days for professional lifeguards due to the large crowds of beachgoers. On days in which these conditions combine guards spend most of their day working in the water itself on equipment like jetskis or rescue boards as well as doing preventative lifeguarding for long hours in the impact zone. In these conditions guards are totally exposed to the damaging and exhausting effects of sun, wind and salt water. This leads to rapid fatigue and exhaustion, making rescue work even more dangerous. During my own career as a Surf Rescue Lifeguard Captain, I have often suffered from severe sun and windburn as a result of long days spent in the water and on the sand even while wearing a variety of commercial sunblocks. After a full summer of using Raw Elements exclusively while working as well as surfing and freediving I can confidently say that I have never used a product as effective. The Raw Elements stick and lotion stay on after application hours longer than anything else I have used in the roughest wave conditions, providing an effective physical barrier against both sun and wind. It is simply the best choice for anyone who exposes themselves to extreme conditions while working or playing. Stay out longer, use Raw Elements.”
-Jess Hiller, Lifeguard Captain
“The USA spearfishing team used Raw Elements Eco Stick sun block everyday while we were out on the water scouting for the 2010 World Spearfishing Competition. As a freediver it is hard to find a sun block that will protect your face from the sun all day and not get washed off from constantly jumping in and out of the water. Well your Eco Stick did just that! The team was very impressed with your products and continue to use them every time we go diving. “
-Sean Moreschi, 2010 USA Spearfishing Team Diver
“The ‘Kettlebottom Crew’ spends a lot of time on the water and in the sun chasing fish for our T.V. show and our clients. The last two seasons we have used the Raw Elements stick and lotion for ourselves and our clients. We have never used a product that gives such complete protection from the vicious Summer Sun. It also doesn’t seem to bother the fish! Other blocks have a very chemical laden scent and this definitely wasn’t the case when we used Raw elements. Use Raw Elements, protect yourself and catch more fish!!”
-Captain Robb Roach, Father of Three
“Sunscreen was always an issue with me. When I am diving, the basic lotion always wears off, so I end up burnt no matter if I had used sunscreen or not. Finally when I tried Raw Elements, I found a product that stuck to my face for a long as I was diving and even more. The product is organic, giving off an edible aroma similar to the smell of a power bar. Knowing that the product is not only protecting my skin from UV rays but also nurturing my skin with antioxidants and vitamins is a comfort I had never found in other sunscreens that smell like chemicals. We are blessed to have a Raw Elements sunscreen on the market to help us stay healthy and look young.”
