We developed Vapor Fresh® for one reason-- to help athletes avoid exposure to harmful chemicals found in everyday cleaning products so they can live healthier and perform better.
Stephen Steinberg founded the company behind Vapor Fresh®, Raw Athletics, back in 2008. While playing for the University of Maryland hockey team, he needed something to keep his pads from stinking up his dorm room. When he couldn't find any products to eliminate the odor without the use of irritating chemicals, he decided to develop a better product himself.
After a lot of research and testing, Stephen eventually created a formula that worked better than other products on the market while only using safe, natural ingredients. Realizing he just developed a unique product, he decided to send a few samples to local equipment managers of college athletics programs. When they came back with positive feedback and purchase orders, Raw Athletics was officially born and Vapor Fresh® Sports Cleaning Spray became the first of many Vapor Fresh® products.
Today, Vapor Fresh® has combined green-cleaning principles with highly effective chemistry to create an entire line of cleaning products for the sports and fitness industry. From professional and collegiate sports teams, to gyms and fitness studios, to homes across the country, you can find Vapor Fresh® almost anywhere.
The Vapor Fresh® Products
All of the Vapor Fresh® products are designed with the understanding that active people require stronger than average cleaning products, but also need to avoid the harmful chemicals that usually come along with stronger cleaning products. We work so hard to keep our bodies healthy, why would we compromise that with unnecessary chemical exposure?
Take a look at what we've got to offer and how they can help keep you cleaner, fresher and safer:
Vapor Fresh® Laundry Detergent
Vapor Fresh® Laundry Detergent is the strongest eco-friendly laundry detergent you'll find.
