In the 70’s, Rivka moved to the UK and used fresh ingredients from our shores to create her very first product – an Organic Seaweed Shampoo and didn’t stop there.
Over the decades, Rivka has been a true pioneer in naturally-derived beauty products developing a popular range of haircare, skincare & natural homecare such as Lavender & Geranium body wash, Coconut & Shea Butter Shampoo Bars and Aloe Vera & Tea Tree Hand Wash.
