OUR STORY

Hello! I'm Juliette, founder of Oribi Organics Pure & Natural Skincare, health-conscious entrepreneur, farmer's wife, and Mom to three awesome teenagers.

After researching skincare ingredients and formulation recipes, I discovered that many of the trusted and popular commercial skincare products I'd been using contained toxic, and potentially carcinogenic ingredients.  Oribi Organics was established back in 2014 as a result of the decision to make my own natural nontoxic skincare products.

Until then, I'd never heard of controversial ingredients known as the 'Dirty Dozen'.  This term is given to synthetic additives such as sulfates, harsh preservatives; parabens, petrochemicals derived from petroleum, and artificial fragrances which are often used as a gateway for unregulated & undisclosed toxic additives.  

Research has shown that over time, these toxins 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 and 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 personal skincare products.  Over time and by popular demand, these simple, gentle, non-toxic skincare products developed into the Oribi Organics brand.

Each product has been thoroughly tested on myself, willing family members & friends and once it has proven its effectiveness, it is added to our collection.

I'm passionate about working with essential oils. 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. 

My goal is to keep our products affordable while using quality ingredients so that everyone has the opportunity to use skincare products that do not compromise health. Our products are sustainable and environmentally friendly and it is my firm  belief that great products should speak for themselves. 

We constantly receive great feedback and testimonials from our customers who have tried and love our products and have seen results with regular use. 

We trust that you will enjoy our carefully handcrafted products as much as we enjoy making them.
