Dream. Inspiration. Research. Achievement.


I established Native Essentials in Hong Kong in 2011, after many years spent living in the Asia Pacific region, where I learned about local botanicals and how to use local plants for their beauty and well-being benefits. I was also keen to find ways to help people relax and sleep better, using only natural and organic ingredients.
I combined this initial fascination with Asian and Pacific botanical wisdom and my long term passion and knowledge of European Herbalism and Aromatherapy. This subsequently encouraged me to study organic chemistry and natural cosmetic formulation, and from this foundation, I began a quest of constantly researching innovative ways of creating powerful and pure organic cosmoceuticals, using only plants.
Each of my products that I formulate is made in my own artisanal fully equipped laboratory in Bangkok, Thailand and packaged in our workshop in Hong Kong. Production is made in small batches to ensure ultimate freshness. Each ingredient that is incorporated has been directly and personally sourced by myself, and as such I am personally proud and delighted to be able to share my creations with you.
I love each wonderful product, with its powerful organic potency, and hope that you do too.
