‘A series of events led me to start looking at the ingredients in skin care products. The more I researched, the more concerned I became about the long-term health effects of exposure to these ingredients. Firstly, I discovered that potentially harmful preservatives are required to give any sort of shelf-life to a product. What’s more, other synthetic ingredients, many of which are derived from environmentally damaging palm oil, are needed to stabilise the oil-water emulsion. I decided it was time to reinvent the way we make and use skin care, and launched Mokosh in 2006, as one of the world's handful of preservative-free, synthetic-free, palm oil free brands.
A short time later I met Jayne Bland, who has years of experience and passion for all things organic, and soon we began working together. Jayne introduced me to the ancient Indian science of Ayurveda, which inspired and influenced how we formulated our products. The result is 10 years of research and experimenting, refining and perfecting the range. We don’t compromise on what goes into our products - only the purest, most beneficial ingredients; nor do we compromise on what stays out - synthetic ingredients and plastic packaging will never be a part of Mokosh products. We are sure you will love caring for your skin the Mokosh way.’
The heart of our operation lies in the beautiful port city of Fremantle in Western Australia, within the land of the Whadjuk Noongar people. We believe a strong and sustainable community is based on treating the land, its people, animals and plants with respect. Our community extends well beyond the borders of Fremantle, from the growers of our precious organic ingredients living all over the world, to our customers across the globe. These human connections make us grateful to be part of such a life-affirming network of people, while working with a broad range of healing botanical ingredients is a reminder of both the bounty and fragility of the natural world. We hope you feel a little bit of that wonder when you use Mokosh.
