The Root Remedy is the 1st black-female-founded beauty gummy supplement brand. We solve the things people don’t see in their beauty routine 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.
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.
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. Protecting my mental health inspired me to start my business during the pandemic. My mental health was declining between the fear based media and infectious virus that had changed our entire world. I needed an outlet and took a leap of faith during the most uncertain time in the world.
At The Root Remedy, 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 representation to the mental health industry through partnerships, resources, and community advocacy.
