Oribi Organics was established back in 2014 as a result of my desire to make my own natural nontoxic skincare products.
After researching skincare ingredients and formulation recipes, I discovered that many of the trusted and popular commercial skincare products I'd been using contained nasty ingredients, such as sulfates, parabens and cheap, non-nutritive petrochemical ingredients. as well as unregulated & undisclosed toxic additives.
Studies has shown that 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 a general weakening of the immune system. Many people are unaware that It takes just a few seconds for the toxic ingredients applied to our skin to be absorbed and enter our bloodstream!
Essentially, What we put onto our bodies is just as important as what we put into our bodies. With this in mind, I began selecting natural & organic ingredients with specific properties and therapeutic benefits to create my skincare products. Eventually these simple, gentle, non-toxic skincare products developed into the Oribi Organics brand.
Once a product has proven its effectiveness after being thoroughly tested on myself willing family and friends, it is added to our collection.
My husband and I have farmed and produced essential oils since 2004. Our company EEO (Ezinqoleni Essential Oils (Pty) Ltd) farms and produces a few essential oils with our main product being Tea Tree oil.
I'm passionate about working with these amazing plant extracts. They are a true gift from nature and in addition to their beautiful scents, when used correctly, they have such wonderful and unique benefits to the skin and overall health of the body.
My goal for Oribi Organics is to keep our products affordable while using quality ingredients so that everyone has the opportunity to use natural 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 inspiring testimonials from our customers who've tried our products, seen results with regular use and have come to love them.
I trust that you will enjoy our carefully handcrafted products as much as we enjoy making them.
