WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?
Coral reefs are the most productive ecosystem on our planet, providing most of the world’s oxygen and creating homes for 25% of all marine life. Unfortunately, there’s been a major decline of these reefs in the past few years due to coral bleaching. One of the biggest factors in the decline of coral reefs is sunscreen pollution.
"One of the biggest factors in the decline of coral reefs is sunscreen pollution. An approximate 14,000 tons of sunscreen enters water around corals each year."
The truth is, about 90% of well-known sunscreen brands contain one or more chemicals that are threatening to coral reefs. An approximate 14,000 tons of sunscreen enters water around corals each year.
ABOUT RAW ELEMENTS
Raw Elements is a company dedicated to education, environmental awareness, and sun safety, as well as protecting the coral reefs in Hawai’i. Working as an ocean lifeguard, founder Brian Guadagno discovered how harmful chemical sunscreens are for our personal health and health of our environment. He quickly discovered that there wasn’t a solution available and so he created his own. The goal was to develop natural sunscreen that could withstand active lifestyles, but also a brand that many people could connect with.
This sunscreen’s only active ingredient is non-nano zinc oxide, which is the only active ingredient that doesn’t damage the coral reefs. All other inactive ingredients are either organic or certified natural and sustainably sourced.

By bringing awareness to Hawai’i’s reefs and providing sustainable skincare products, Raw Elements is changing the way people think about our environment. These ways of thinking will help protect what’s important to the people of Hawai’i.
