The result is Raw Essentials, her home-made range of natural products, made using raw plant-based ingredients for men, women and babies.

Products such as face cream, body scrub, eye gel, lip balm, shaving cream and nappy rash balm are made in small batches out of South Fremantle.

Ms Scott said her main motivation for developing Raw Essentials was to educate people about the synthetic chemicals in skin care products.

‘My best-selling product would have to be the light face cream for devitalised mature skin,’ she said. ‘It’s blended with sandalwood and frankincense pure essential oils, which stimulate healthy skin regeneration… targets anti-ageing and the effects of our harsh Aussie sun.’

Raw Essentials products are available through a number of local retailers. Visit www.raw essentials.com.au for a range of stockists or to buy online.
