Our Self Care Ethos

Truth. Love. Sugar. 
Raw Sugar was built on the idea that everyone deserves to feel beautiful and has the right to affordable, clean, healthy self care. It’s our Clean For All philosophy and one that comes purely from a place of knowing that self care is good for your mental health and contributes to SELF LOVE. When you love yourself, you’re able to own who you are and step into the most authentic and powerful version of yourself and share your unique beauty and light with the world around you. Showing up in your raw truth will lead you to the sugar — what we call the sweet stuff of life.  
What is Self Care?
Self care encompasses practices that help nurture your physical, mental, spiritual and social well being. In essence, doing something that helps your body, mind or soul feel good. There are an endless number of ways you can practice self care, from simple tactics like developing your weekly clean rituals at home, prioritizing sleep, taking a walk in the sunshine or scheduling in a warm soak in the tub to more indulgent practices like facials, massages or esoteric self-healing modalities like Reiki, sound baths or joining a local yoga studio. Know this — you don’t have to spend a lot to love yourself a lot. Simple, consistent prioritization of self care will have a greater effect on your wellness than the occasional indulgence.
