RAAW HOLISTIC BEAUTY

It all started when I moved to New York. I was living a healthy life, ate organically and took good care of myself  - except when it came to the beauty products I assumed I was pampering myself with every day. For some reason, I never thought about all of the harmful chemicals they contained and they actually go straight into our bodies.

One morning I woke up with a horrible rash on my face - it came from an expensive high-end brand I trusted. The skin around my eyes was purple, wrinkled and flaky. It was horrifying. In that moment I decided I wouldn't ever put any harmful chemicals on my skin again. If I didn't understand the label, I simply wouldn’t buy it.To me, and as I found out later - to many other women out there, I had a more holistic concept of "beauty" than what I could find in stores. I wanted a beauty routine that was good for my skin, my body and my environment. I searched for a line of pure, efficient skincare in elegant packaging that I could also afford. I couldn’t find it - so I made my own. 

I began studying herbal medicine and the healing properties of plants and herbs as practiced in traditional Chinese and Eastern cultures. The first product I developed was the “Miracle Oil” - named after the miraculous power it contained and healed my eczema with….and that’s how it all started. There was no “tree-hugging” moment. I simply created Raaw in a Jar because I believe in the long lasting benefits of organic sustainable products. I hope you'll enjoy the, as much as I do.
