Ravenwyne Mercantile on Spectrum News!

Joanne Schwallie believes that starting your day with something special can make all the difference, whether with a beautiful sunrise, a great cup of coffee, or a luxurious soap. So in 2015, she embraced her  obsession of natural ingredients, a love of high quality luxury, and a desire to create beauty, and launched Ravenwyne Mercantile, the place for beautiful, handcrafted, vegan bath and body products.


After many trials and errors she has perfected her recipes and creates plant-based, skin-loving products that add that little luxury. She also adds artistic touches: swirls and blocks of color, solid appliqués, and glittery flourishes, to make each piece unique and beautiful.


Ravenwyne Mercantile is committed to the highest quality ingredients and customer service.  Our products are 99% plant based with the exception of our Honey Soap and Lip Balm. Our glitters are biodegradable, not plastic.

We believe in community and use locally-sourced ingredients whenever possible. We love to collaborate with local artists, organizations, and retailers.


Some of our products have been created to represent the wonderful things Upstate New York has to offer. For example, our Wineberry and Rochester Lilac scents are a reflection of our gorgeous Finger Lakes Region, something our community is very proud of.
