Ora Naturals was inspired by a series of trips to Southern Morocco that I took along with Steve, my co-founder. On witnessing the production of Moroccan Argan Oil from the nuts of the ancient Argania Spinosa forest trees, we saw an opportunity to develop a new luxurious skin care range based on naturally occurring organic ingredients. Argan Oil has been used by the Berber tribe women of Morocco for generations as a natural and wondrous skin care product and as a highly nutritive food supplement.
I grew up in the Bay of Islands on the shores of New Zealand’s beautiful North Island surrounded by nature which created an instinctive interest within me for natural and organic products. I moved to England in 2005 and now live and work in Beckenham, Kent on the doorstep of the wonderfully diverse and multi-cultural city of London.
To create our own range of natural skin care products we have sought to combine pure Moroccan Argan Oil with natural plant extracts from around the globe, including my native New Zealand.
The name “ORA” comes directly from the New Zealand Maori language meaning health and vitality, and through the creation of Ora Naturals, we have sought to embody the best elements of a natural skin care range.
Ora Naturals launched in December 2012 and we look forward to spreading the word about our new and exciting range.
