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.
What goes into creating the products?
Our products are truly natural. Most of our scents and colours as extracted from the raw ingredients themselves, at our own workshop. We use oil infusion technique, a traditional method to do the extraction. Aside from that, we also actively explore local ingredients and local culture. We believe that the tropical botanicals available to us are often overlooked in favour of more “trendy” imported scents or flavours, and we always try to bring something new, effective and truly natural to our customers.
