Your health and wellbeing matter!
Yet, with the great abundance of health and wellness articles on the internet, it’s often challenging to make sure you get the most accurate and up to date information.
In RawBeautySource, we stand against the trend of using our readers’ health to advertise pharmaceutical or wellness products or provide misleading information to motivate specific purchasing behavior.
We are dedicated to writing high-quality, unbiased health and beauty-related articles that can help you understand various medical, scientific, and wellness topics better: in a clear, comprehensive, and transparent way.
The authors of the articles in RawBeautySource strictly follow the established content creation procedures:
- Use mainly primary sources of information (e.g., medical research papers, scientific studies, books, government publications, official medical associations’ documents, statistics).
- Reference where the information provided in the articles comes from.
- Thoroughly research the information to verify its authenticity and accuracy.
- Use a friendly voice and comprehensive, yet informative, and factual vocabulary.
- Conduct thorough research to provide information about both the positive and negative aspects of every article’s topic.
- Implement all the remarks, suggestions, and comments of the medical reviewers that collaborate with RawBeautySource.
- Avoid giving advice or recommendations, unless they are approved and verified by our medical reviewers, or are published by a highly authoritative source.
- Take our readers’ feedback into consideration and use it to improve the content creation process.
- Make timely updates of the content when new authoritative information is available, in order to stay current and up to date.
Our sources of information
We are committed to providing transparent, unbiased, objective, and factual information.
Therefore, we build our articles mainly on information from primary sources, including articles and studies in peer-reviewed scientific journals and magazines (e.g., ScienceDirect, Gut), medical research publications, books, official documents, and reports issued by governmental or private medical organizations/associations.
When primary sources are not directly available, the information in the articles is based on medical review papers published in authoritative scientific databases (e.g., PubMed), journals (e.g., BMJ Military Health), government websites (e.g., National Library of Medicine, Centers of Disease Control and Prevention) or leading scientific newspapers (e.g., Science Daily).
We don’t let our readers trust us blindly, so we add link references to every article that uses external sources of information (see the paragraph above for examples).
This way, our readers can easily follow the link to every study, document, or publication we have used and read the authentic text. The aim of this practice is to bring transparency to our content creation process.
Sometimes, scientific studies and research papers face limitations that can lead to weak or indefinite results. Other times, the results may be unsupported by other authoritative sources. This can be due to a lack of proper trial, insufficient time, or resources, as well as for other situational reasons.
We conduct thorough research on the external information we use, comparing it to related publications to ensure high-grade reliability and validity.
If such data validation is impossible (due to lack of publications, for example), we mention this limitation in our articles to inform the readers that more research is needed on the specific topic.
We keep in mind that medical and wellness topics can be confusing and complicated. That is why we aim to make you feel comfortable while reading!
We are committed to providing comprehensible information by using a friendly and empowering voice without letting go of the essential medical terms (to keep our content informative and factual).
Points of view
The articles in RawBeautySource.com don’t focus on one point of view. They look into various perspectives to help the readers see a broad spectrum of information. This way, we don’t aim to shape public opinions but enable learning and awareness on the topics we write about.
We are proud to be working with experienced health professionals, like physicians, dermatologists, dietitians, gastroenterologists, and urologists. Those medical experts are responsible for the reliability of the information provided on the website, and review a large amount of RawBeautySource’s content on a monthly basis, providing relevant, accurate, and objective feedback, remarks, and suggestions.
After the review process and the implementation of the suggested changes, the articles are approved by different members of the medical network.
We indicate that an article is medically reviewed by mentioning the medical reviewer at the beginning of the blog post, where the readers can see additional information about the health expert (like education, experience, and related websites).
Advice and recommendations
RawBeautySource does not aim to replace the counsel and the personalized advice of a medical doctor or health professional. That is why the articles that we publish do not contain advice or recommendations, unless they are suggested by a medical expert, or are published in an official scientific/medical publication (with appropriate referencing).
In fact, the health experts that we collaborate with, provide first-hand professional advice in the articles they review. Their recommendations are based on experience, knowledge, and expertise, and are integrated into the articles in the form of a quote (to indicate that the advice is given by a health expert, and not by RawBeautySource as a brand).
We love feedback, as it progressively makes RawBeautySource a more informative, user-friendly, and detailed website.
After we receive constructive feedback about our content, we research and evaluate its objectivity and applicability. Depending on the outcome, we update our content to improve its quality and accuracy! In the long run, such feedback helps us to upgrade our overall content creation process.
Ongoing scientific research and medical studies motivate us to regularly update our content.
We use newly available data, study results, and evidence to transform any outdated content into recent and accurate information.
