Q: How did you get started on Raganaturals LLC?
I have a Ph.D. in Biotechnology and I only had two passions - science and living a chemical-free lifestyle. Now you must be wondering: “What’s the connection here between Biotechnology and Lotions?” This connection came to fruition after I had my first child. He had no issues except a very common one “very dry skin”. I tried many creams and lotions available in the market and tried to rule out allergies, but nothing was working on him except steroid creams.
> Our mistakes are just reminders to make better decisions. I made quite a lot. I spent too much time before launch trying to perfect everything from packaging to labels, etc. I think it just wasted lots of invaluable time.
One day while looking for new creams for him to try, I started reading the ingredients and to my surprise, most of the creams had around 30 different ingredients which were almost similar. I couldn’t justify myself using so many chemicals on a small baby. Yes, this was the actual moment of enlightenment for the inner scientist of a Mom. I then started to read and understand the science behind bath and body products and start creating my own from scratch using basic and essential ingredients.
I am a trained microbiologist and understand the importance of following good manufacturing practices. My cream gave instant relief to my son, that was a very proud mommy moment.
Later, I gave the same cream to other friends who had dry skin issues and they all loved it. This was enough motivation to start my own personal care line, RaGa Naturals – minimalistic, using only the finest natural ingredients & handcrafted with love.
