Origin Story

It's a tale as old as time that morphed into an origin story with a twist. Teenager battles bad skin, endures scrutiny and goes through an arsenal of products to find relief. What makes this story different is that Marcia Gandhi went on to create a skincare brand out of the struggle and called it The Raw Rebel.

The idea seed was planted when she shared a blog post about homemade remedies for acne and her sister told her, "You should make it and sell it. I'm sure people would buy it." After many moons of pursuing a different path (lifestyle writer, deputy editor, quiet team player), behind-the-scenes tinkering, conversations with those who understood the vision, building the brand organically, research and development, trial and error – they did.

Today, the Raw Rebel is home to bespoke skincare and haircare, as well as tattoo aftercare products. Each item is lovingly handmade to order with good intentions and ingredients that are sourced locally and internationally.

We like to keep things fresh, so, we get our non-toxic, premium ingredients (food grade/organic/plant derivatives/lab tested botanical extracts, herbs or any combination thereof) in small batches to maintain a high quality. Our formulas are fluid which allows us to customize products to suit your individual needs.

These formulas have gone through a stringent testing process (on ourselves, loved ones and test groups) for your peace of mind. Some remedies have been passed down through generations, some are born from more recent developments in the industry, we do our best to make sure the individual ingredient claims are backed by science.

We're all about the journey of self-discovery, self-love, self-care, and returning to our roots. Embrace nature, your natural beauty and your wild.

We welcome all to #therebelution
