Meet Raw Materials Skin Ambassador Amini Fonua

Amini Fonua, a Raw Materials Skin Ambassador, is a two-time Olympic swimmer proudly representing the South Pacific’s Kingdom of Tonga in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.

“My passion for all-natural skincare surfaced when I became aware of how frequently I noticed men and women lacking knowledge on properly caring and maintaining the biggest and most important organ of the human body: our skin.”

Amini’s favorite Raw Materials product? Skin Grit.

“Any time I need to look good I reach for Skin Grit to exfoliate away my imperfections.”

Amini left Tonga to attend Texas A&M University, where he shattered multiple school swimming records, became a Big XII Conference Champion, and was peer-voted Team Captain of the Men’s Swim Team.

His top 3 career accomplishments include:

  • 2 Olympic appearances (2012 London & 2016 Rio)
  • 2 Oceanic Swimming Championship Titles (2010 & 2012)
  • 3 Pacific Games Titles (2015)

Amini is no stranger to the sun. Whether he’s in Texas or Tonga, Amini uses Raw Materials Face Stick SPF 30 to protect his complexion from the rays. 

“The face stick is made up of some of my favorite all-natural ingredients: organic sunflower oil, organic cocoa butter, and organic beeswax. Bonus: this sunscreen never leaves streaky white marks like other sunscreens. Double bonus: the face stick has moisturizing qualities that leave my face feeling smooth and supple without being greasy and clogging my pores.”
