Hi I'm Marcella, Founder of The Root Remedy. The Root Remedy was created during the pandemic to bring diversity and inclusivity to the gummy supplement and “beauty from within” industry. During the pandemic, I got sick and turned to natural ingredients to help cure my symptoms. I noticed that there was a lack of diversity in the health and beauty brands on the shelves. Another problem I noticed was, competitor gummy formulas were filled with sugars and GMO’s. I then sought out a manufacturer to create a sugar-free, vegan, and non-GMO gummy supplement with ingredients that support a healthy glow from the inside out. And just like that, The Root Remedy was born. Our goal is to create inclusivity around self-care and beauty that starts from within.
What makes us different is our values. They’re integrated into every aspect of our business. 90% of the influencers and experts we partner with are from underrepresented groups. This includes women, BIPOC, and members of the LGBTQ+ community (FYI we’re all just human beings lol). We value inclusivity as a whole and bring our values everywhere we go.
We believe that “Beauty Starts From Within” and that is why we support mental health advocacy. The lack of diversity in the health and beauty industry is directly linked to institutional inequality. We partner and sponsor outreach events with black-owned non-profit organizations like JOY-DAY, that help people understand what’s going on with their mental health and better cope with their day-to-day. Our goal is to bring awareness and diversity to the industry through partnerships, resources, and community advocacy.
