Oribi Organics was established back in 2014, when I began making my own natural skincare products.
After researching skincare ingredients and formulation recipes, I discovered that many of the trusted and popular commercial skincare products I had been using contained toxic, and potentially carcinogenic ingredients.
Until then, I had never heard of the controversial ingredients known as the 'Dirty Dozen'. These include synthetic additives such as sulfates, harsh preservatives; parabens, cheap, non-nutritive petrochemicals derived from petroleum, and artificial fragrances which are often used as a gateway for unregulated & undisclosed toxic additives.
Research has shown that these 'nasties' accumulate in the body's fatty tissue and have been linked to cancer, hormonal disruptions, skin & eye irritations, dermatitis, respiratory stress, headaches and general weakening of the immune system.
Apparently, it only takes 26 seconds for these ingredients we apply to our skin to be absorbed and make their way in to our bloodstream!
Realising that what we put onto our bodies is just as important as what we put into our bodies, I began carefully selecting natural & organic ingredients with specific properties and therapeutic benefits to create my skincare products. Over time, these simple, gentle, non-toxic skincare products developed into the Oribi Organics brand.
Each product has been thoroughly tested on myself and willing family & friends and proven its effectiveness before adding it to our collection.
Working with essential oils is a passion of mine. They are a true gift from nature and in addition to their amazing scents, when used correctly, they have such wonderfully unique benefits to the skin and overall health of the body.
From the anti-bacterial botanicals used in our Oily | Acne range to the rejuvenating & renewing natural ingredients used in our Dry | Mature range, each one has been deliberately selected and included in our formulations.
We constantly receive great feedback and testimonials from our customers who have tried and love our products and have seen results with regular use.
I am passionate about keeping our products affordable so that everyone has the opportunity to use skincare products that do not compromise health. Our products are sustainable and environmentally friendly and believe that great products should speak for themselves.
