This is the Natural Sunscreen Everyone is Talking About

Posted in Gear by


If you are vigilant about sun block and want only 100% natural, Raw Elements is what you need in your beach bag.


We found this natural sunscreen in a surf shop in Carlsbad, CA and the person who helped us said she loved it.

The RAW website speaks to how RAW came to be (super cool story) and why you should sunscreen your kids (and you!) with it.

The Certified Natural Sunscreen was developed by Brian Guadagno, a 20 year Ocean Rescue Lifeguard, who was searching for a natural alternative to chemical sunscreens.

The sunscreen is gentle enough for use in infant care and meets the performance demands of the most extreme athletes. RAW uses a sustainable, recycled, Non Nano, uncoated Zinc Oxide as the sole Active Ingredient. This is delivered in a gentle, Certified Organic ingredient, Eco-Safe, Reef-Safe, Leaping Bunny – Cruelty Free certified, Non-GMO Project Verified, NPA Certified Natural formula. Whew. That is a lot of care going into one product.

On their FB page you’ll find lots of great info including some cool profiles on who is wearing RAW (hint: some up and coming young athletes).

You can purchase RAW on their website with free shipping on orders over $50. Amazon carries it as well with free shipping for Prime members.

      We love it and the price is reasonable on Amazon considering that every ingredient is natural – plus they have such a cool story and they care so much! Let us know how you like it – we are almost out (but we just got back from the beach 🙂 we haven’t been outside quite as much since home back in AZ! And when we are – we usually like go to swimming in the late, late afternoon early evening).
