The first thing that drew us to Raw Elements’ excellent line was the company’s brown, organic-looking packaging. It’s eco-chic without being pretentious, and hints at the natural ingredients to be found inside the containers. Raw Elements uses very little plastic packaging. Most of it is recyclable aluminum. In facet, their containers are all recyclable. The contents are great, as well! All products are vegan, except for a couple that contain ethically sourced beeswax.
The company’s website, www.rawelementsusa.com, explains their philosophy and showcases their offerings. Everything is made with certified, all-natural ingredients. If you require a good sunscreen for the summer heat, look no further than the Face and Body Tube SPF 30 ($18.99). It lasts for more than 80 minutes in the water, so you’ll love it if you’re an avid swimmer. This sunscreen is soy, gluten and nut-free, biodegradable, and reef-safe. It won’t run or sting your eyes, so it’s great for kids as well as adults!
Perhaps your lips need some extra attention. If so, try the Herbal Rescue Lip Balm ($4.99), a highly-rated, moisturizing product that will moisturize your lips and give them protection from the sun’s rays. You can wear this balm in the winter, as well! 100 percent organic, and 100 percent wonderful! Note: this product contains beeswax, so it’s not vegan, though it is definitely vegetarian.
Everyone needs a good daily face moisturizer, and you’re no exception to the rule. The Tinted Daily Face Moisturizer Pump SPF 30 ($18.99) provides UVA-UVB true broad spectrum protection and is water resistant. Organic cacao forms the base of this product, as well as a sole active ingredient of 20% Non-Nano Zinc Oxide. Its potent blend of antioxidants works together to help repair your hard-working skin. Of course, this product is biodegradable, reef-safe, and safe for all ages, just like all of Raw Elements’ offerings! And cruelty-free, as well. You will love it, both on the land and in the water.
If you spend $50.00, Raw Elements will cover your shipping and handling costs. You shouldn’t have too much trouble spending that much! So many tempting offerings, all vegetarian (mostly vegan) and made without animal testing or cruelty of any kind. This company has been certified by Leaping Bunny, One Percent for the Planet, the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, and the EWG Sun Safety Campaign. It would be difficult to find another company that cares for the planet as much as Raw Elements does, so you know that you are perfectly safe utilizing their excellent products. Enjoy!
