Courtney Tobon is the owner and formulator of Love Raw Skin Care. An organic small batch skin care company based in the Niagara Region. It began with a need to know what was actually in our products. The first formulation was stretch mark cream and has grown exponentially to include a full line of skin care, hygiene products and a mens line that includes beard grooming essentials. All products are handcrafted using raw, unrefined and organic food grade ingredients. They are carefully blended to preserve the natural benefits of each ingredient. Love Raw never uses chemical additives or preservatives.
“I believe that you should be just as healthy from the outside in, as the inside out. Thats why using hand picked quality ingredients that will feed your skin the nutrients it needs as well as bring out the best in your skin, are of the utmost importance. Our skin is the largest organ we have, therefore we should be just as conscious of what we put on our skin as we are of what we put into our bodies.”
