Our mantra is anything that we put on our body should be as nutritious and delicious as what we put in it.
Everything is made with simplicity and with respect for our planet. All of our products are 100% raw, vegan sustainable, locally and/or ethically sourced, contain only natural ingredients, recyclable packaging, and are made from a centered place of pure love and positive vibes <3
In my early 20's I was diagnosed with PCOS, one of the most common hormonal endocrine disorders in women. A not so fun syndrome, with not so fun symptoms.
After visiting a naturopath I was determined to cure my syndrome naturally though a balanced lifestyle including a healthy diet, herbs, supplements, yoga, exercise, supplements, acupuncture and meditation. I have gradually incorporated all of the above into my life.
One of the most difficult tasks was attempting to eliminate all beauty and skincare products containing sulfates, parabens, and other harsh chemicals, as they're known to cause or worsen endocrine dysfunction. Not really so much what a woman with PCOS wants.
Yet, when I went to buy myself skincare and beauty products that fit the bill, I couldn't afford the bill. Everything was ridiculously expensive!
Then I realized I could make it myself. Scrubs that are so good, and so pure, not only did my skin love them, but my taste-buds too!
However, when developing skin care products, it isn't just health matters that are on my mind. Being a vegetarian, and growing up on the Westcoast of Canada, I have an avid respect for animals, our planet and nature. So it is just as important to me that our ingredients and the packaging materials we use are sustainable, vegan, eco-friendly and ethical. I embrace and am humbled by the ability to take care of my self using natural materials that mother nature has provided us with.
I also want to make Raw a brand that gives back. Which is Raw will donate 5% of our profits to a new charity on a monthly basis.
