The Root Remedy is the 1st black-female-founded beauty gummy supplement brand. We solve beauty problems from the inside out by targeting gut health and healing the gut-skin axis. Our goal is to bring inclusivity, diversity, and mental health advocacy to the “beauty from within” space.

Our Story

Hi I'm Marcella, Founder of The Root Remedy. The Root Remedy was created during the pandemic to help with my mental and emotional clarity. During the pandemic, I got sick and turned to natural ingredients to help cure my symptoms (my family is Jamaican-Panamanian and Native so these remedies came naturally). I noticed there was a lack of diversity in health and beauty brands on the shelves. Another problem I noticed was that 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.

Our Values

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. 

Social Cause

We believe that “Beauty Starts From Within” and that is why mental health advocacy is one of our core values. 13 years ago our founder, Marcella Graham, was clinically diagnosed with anxiety and depression. Her dislike of the way she felt on her medication jump started her interest in holistic healing. She has now made it her mission to educate BIPOC communities on the importance of taking care of their mental health from the inside out.   

The Root Remedy partners with black-owned non-profit organizations like JOY-DAY that help provide resources to BIPOC communities who are struggling with mental health. Our mission is to bring awareness and representation to the mental health industry through partnerships, resources, and community advocacy.
