Our Story

We are 3 sisters ‘rooted’ by our entrepreneurial spirit, passion for healthy skin, and helping people be the best and most confident version of yourself!  Our collective ‘roots’ include years owning and operating medical spas, and learning from the best and brightest in skincare.  Fast forward and Voila – RAACINE™ is born!

What is in a name?

RAACINE is actually our family name (Fr: Racine) which in English translates to Root.  We added the extra ‘A’ in the spelling since we thought it was worth a double mention, and to represent how passionate we are for Vitamin A and Antioxidants as superfoods for our skin.  Growing up with a family name that translates to Root, it was more than a name, and choosing the name RAACINE is a tribute to our father who passed away a few years ago.

RAACINE is made from natural ingredients and proudly home grown in Ontario, Canada. The ingredients we choose are carefully harvested and selected.  That is why you will see our products have some of the highest quality and concentrations of key vitamins such as A, C and Antioxidants. It is so important to us that our products are organic, natural and of course, effective!

The most important thing our customers should know about RAACINE™ is who we are and why we exist. We are a company, ‘rooted’ in a few simple concepts.  Most importantly, authenticity and results focused. 

Authenticity:  RAACINE products look and feel authentic as they are.  What do we mean by that?  For example, the Refreshing Cleanser is made from Maple Leaf extracts and therefore is brownish in color.  We didn’t alter the color to white.

Results focused: RAACINE products are developed with high quality and effective ingredients, to keep your skin healthy and nourished.  If it is not good enough to eat, it shouldn’t be applied to your skin!  Up to 70% of what we put on our skin gets absorbed and in less than 30 seconds.

In a nutshell, healthy skin is noticeable.  It GLOWS!  It makes you feel CONFIDENT.  It is feedback such as this that inspired us to take our passion into the successful RAACINE skincare line ~ the future of skincare.

Finally, we are proud to be sisters, female founders, and yes Tara and Krista are twins!
