If there’s one industry that could use a complete sustainable overhaul, it’s the beauty industry. With over 120 billion units of virgin plastic packaging being manufactured every year, and countless harmful chemicals making their way down our drains every day, something needs to give.
Raw Oats is a sustainable and ethical skincare company, lovingly handmade by artisan and Michigan-local, Kelly. She wanted to make a difference by crafting effective skincare that didn’t harm the planet.
Raw Oats uses vegetarian and vegan ingredients, sourced locally where possible. The range consists of skin, bath, and body care products in low-waste, low-plastic packaging.
One of the best-selling products is the Cold Brew Coffee Soap. Hand-poured with real coffee grounds and a range of natural butter and oils to properly cleanse, nourish, and protect the skin from the elements.
They also have products for the men in your life. The Beard Wash and Shave Bar, formulated with argan and coconut oils; and the Creamy Beard Balm, made from mango seed butter base.
Raw Oats is also a socially-responsible brand, donating $1 per sale of every Good Vibrations Soap to the Midwest Vizsla Rescue. They have also donated soap and funds to Relay for Life Walk for cancer survivors.
