Our Story

Creator of Raw, Joseph Mariano began creating soaps in 2014. His passion led him to being commissioned to creating body wash and shampoos for float centers.  Several years later the product is still being used by 100’s of floaters and people around the globe.  In 2023, after almost a decade of developing and operating Raw Goods, Joseph stepped away from making soap to focus on his growing family.  He felt strongly there was no better person to entrust his vision of the Raw Goods., than his longtime friend and fellow veteran Eduardo Davila.
