ORÍKÌ is a farm to skin and wellness brand that fuses all - natural ingredients & scientific research to create extraordinary personal care products. They create effective and luxurious beauty and grooming products utilizing raw materials and all natural resources discovered primarily across the Continent of Africa. Botanically based, using potent plants, organic ingredients and 100% natural essential oils.
Before ORÍKÌ was conceived, the founder, Joycee Awosika, was a little girl growing up in the western world, intrigued by natural ingredients and their potency. The first time she experienced the power of all-natural was at the age of 12 when she mixed an avocado, yogurt and olive oil together to make a mask for her hair; the result was a well moisturized, softer and more lustrous mane. She never looked back. Skin and hair became her weapon of choice for self-expression – a way to experiment with raw materials and resources – and it powered a journey that led her back to her roots on the Continent of Africa and that helped her create the brand that is ORÍKÌ.
ORÍKÌ was birthed after years of experimenting with all types of natural ingredients, at one point creating a mini lab in a home setting, testing and experimenting with diverse materials from activated charcoal to wild berries and ingredients in between. She wanted others to experience and believe in the potency of natural. Seeing a void in the industry and a depiction and narration of Africa as being helpless and lacking, she launched a skincare brand “inspired by nature and crowned with opulence,” focusing on a wide range of raw materials and ingredients for all skin types, creating formulas that work for all depending on skin type and concern.
ORÍKÌ’s products are designed to engender skin-loving results to ultimately “make you proud of your skin.” Most importantly, ORÍKÌ creates skincare products to inspire. Skincare exists for you to walk boldly in your bare skin with confidence. You should never feel like you have to hide your skin or cover it up. Makeup should be a choice.
