A body lotion that smells intoxicatingly of spicy ginger and citrusy tangerines? Yes, please! There’s only so much vanilla and rose one can take, after all. Root Remedies’ inventive scent combos are one of the many reasons why this local brand deserves a spot on your vanity. The other includes its commitment to using locally sourced ingredients whenever possible, its stance against animal testing and aesthetically-pleasing packaging; a total win in our books.
The brand tells #TeamCLEO about its top lust-haves and what sets their ingredients apart.
Tell us a little bit about the brand philosophy.
Root Remedies focus is to bring truly natural skin care products to our customers. We try to stay as close as possible to natural botanicals/ingredients and whenever possible, we will extract our scents and colours from the ingredients themselves. The founder of Root Remedies, Sian, like many young women, has tried various commercial skincare products to no avail. Eventually, she stumbled upon natural products and quickly saw positive results. She has spent years learning about natural skin care from scratch, even attempting to extract her own coconut oil at one point.
