Lauren Raba

Catskill Botanicals, the creation of herbalist Lauren Raba, specializes in using wild harvested and locally grown herbs of the Catskill region to produce plant based skin creams.

Plant based infusions are combined with other natural ingredients, including a unique blend of essential oils, to formulate a variety of skin creams which provide nourishment and protection for our skin. Lauren makes each small batch with love and positive intention, with the goal of providing a product that will feed both skin and spirit.
