Nourishing Naturally: Why We’re Raw

If you use Raw Essentials, you already know that our raw beauty products are never heated above 115°. This is to ensure that our active ingredients remain 100% raw — that is, in their natural, alive state. This is so important to us because it means that all of our active ingredients retain their highest possible nutritional value!

To give you an idea of why raw skin care is so beneficial for your skin, here’s a quick look at just a few of the nutrients that can be fully experienced only with raw beauty products like ours.

  • Skin care antioxidants. Antioxidants are essential for overall health and well-being. Many people believe that antioxidants are the key to anti-aging health and anti-aging skin care because they are able to both prevent and help slow the onset of both visible and internal signs of aging.

    Antioxidants work by neutralizing free radicals, which are caused by external aggressors like sun damage and pollutants, as well as poorly formulated skin care products. Free radicals slowly but surely destroy healthy cells, leading to damaged and weakened skin. When antioxidants are introduced, they stop free radicals in their tracks and actually work to repair the damaged cells, thereby restoring healthy skin.

    Many skin care products contain antioxidant skin care ingredients. However, with a raw skin care formulation, your skin will receive more antioxidants that are of a higher quality and power. In this way, a raw skin care formulation is better able to protect and repair free radical damage.

  • Skin care vitamins. Like the rest of the body, skin needs proper vitamin care to maintain healthy functions. Many vitamins are used in skin care products, but some of the best include vitamin C, which boosts collagen production and brightness to maintain a youthful appearance, as well as vitamin E, which conditions the skin’s texture.

    When a raw, natural skin care ingredient is maintained, its natural vitamins remain intact and active. This means that your skin reaps the full benefits of these skin care vitamins, leading to optimal results.

  • Skin care minerals. Like vitamins, minerals are a top necessity for creating and maintaining healthy skin. Many skin care companies fail to provide the skin with many essential minerals, resulting in skin deficiencies. At Raw Essentials, our raw ingredients retain their natural mineral content in order to provide perfected results.
  • Skin care omega 6 fatty acids. Like minerals, a lot of skin care products fail to include omega 6 fatty acids in their formulations! Omega sixes are the perfect natural skin care moisturizer, and while they are found in many commonly used skin care ingredients, only raw natural sources provide the omega 6 fatty acids your skin needs.

    Omega 6s help soothe dry skin, provide long-lasting hydration, and can even help reduce the severity of redness and discomfort caused by conditions like eczema. In short, omega 6 fatty acids are nature’s perfect moisturizer and are a must-have in every skin care regimen.

    As you can see, we really believe in the importance of using raw active ingredients! We will never claim that we’re the only health-promoting skin care company on the market, but we will go so far as to say that we are one of the very few companies harnessing the incredible power of raw, active skin care ingredientfor the benefit of your skin!

You pamper your face with rich skin care moisturizers and anti-aging products, but do you properly care for the skin on your body? Your body needs more than the occasional dousing of lotion — if you want the skin on your body to be as soft, radiant, and healthy as the skin on your face, follow these tips…

Protect against sun damage. Too often, we apply an SPF to our face, neck, and chest, but leave the rest of our body exposed to UV damage! This is what leads to premature skin aging, wrinkles, fine lines, leathery texture, hyperpigmentation and more. If you’d like to keep your body looking youthful and healthy, be sure to protect it by wearing weather-appropriate clothing and applying an SPF to exposed skin.

Cleanse right. A lot of mainstream soaps and body wash products are very stripping on the skin. Most of them contain sodium laureth/lauryl sulfate, an extreme irritant that is also used in floor cleaners and grease removal products! Instead, be sure to use a gentle body cleanser that will benefit your skin while it cleanse. Our Balancing Body Wash, for example, protects the skin with antioxidants while nourishing and moisturizing with a blend of natural oils. The skin is left soft, pure, and gorgeous.

Moisturize every day! When you use your daily face moisturizer, use your body moisturizer, too. Whether you use a body lotion, body cream, or body oil, the skin on your body needs to be properly hydrated and protected against moisture loss. This will keep skin supple, soft, and radiant, while also reinforcing the skin’s natural defenses against aggressors.

If you follow these three simple steps, your skin will look healthier than ever, and premature signs of aging won’t even be on your radar!

Did you know that mainstream skin care products often contain a slew of harsh chemicals, fillers, preservatives, and even ingredients that are banned in other countries? The truth is that subpar skin care can do a lot worse than fail to deliver great results; it can harm your skin and your body. The body absorbs up to 60% of what you apply to your skin; if your skin care contains dangerous ingredients, you could be risking so much more than the appearance of your skin.

At Raw Essentials, we believe that skin care should promote overall health as well as beauty. One of the ways we strive to create healthier skin is by using raw active ingredients. Why Raw? As defined in the dictionary, raw means, “unadulterated; in its natural state; alive”. What could be more health-promoting than nourishing ingredients delivered to your skin in their natural, alive state?

In order to maintain an ingredient’s raw state, it must never be heated above 115°. Raw Essentials’ products are not “cooked” in the same way that mainstream products are; instead, they’re carefully formulated and even packaged to never reach a temperature above 115°. This means that the ingredients retain every natural vitamin, nutrient, mineral, and skin care antioxidant, which are then able to heal, nourish, and protect your skin.

In addition to healthy raw skin care ingredients, Raw Essentials never uses sulfates, petroleum, synthetic preservatives, detergents, GMOs, or artificial colors and fragrances. This ensures safe, gentle use, even for sensitive skin types!

To sum up what we believe at Raw Essentials, here’s a look at the company practices we’ve promised to follow to ensure the best products for our customers:

1. We use 100% raw active ingredients.
2. We use ingredients that are as close to their unadulterated, alive state as possible.
3. We never use chemicals or synthetic ingredients.
4. We use a 100% natural preservative systems and will never use parabens.
5. Our products are cruelty free.
