We began by looking at beauty differently, seeing the world as a precious resource—not something to be exploited. So, we decided to do something about it and bring a new skincare vision to life.
It was a journey to get here: we learned new things about ourselves, found answers to questions we never thought we’d ask, gained strength in the knowledge that outer beauty reflects inner well-being, and ultimately, found ourselves in the process —skincare with a conscience. Most importantly, we give back to nature because it’s in our nature to do good. And we’re always discovering new ways to do that—for you and our planet.
THE SCIENCE OF NATURE
We create transformative skincare with naturally-derived ingredients, designed to complement skin’s natural activities and noticeably improve how skin looks and feels.
Today, our Origins Bio-Tech Lab scientists fuseover 30 years of Origins expertise in plant science and skin physiology, and meticulously identify the high-performing, bioactive elements of plant- and earth-based ingredients—then use innovative technologies to unleash and amplify their benefits.
Committed to the Planet
We believe it’s our responsibility to give back to nature and we endeavor to make choices that help reduce our impact on the planet.
