The inspiration behind sustainable healthcare brand Nzuri Organics

Nzuri Organics

Nzuri Organics is at the top of the tree when it comes to sustainable healthcare products. What inspired you to start this business?

I wanted to share skincare that was organic, effective and, most of all, affordable with no nasty fillers. I initially made the products just for myself and friends/work colleagues for five years before it was a business.

Why is it important that we are more mindful of sustainability in healthcare?

I strongly believe that we need to leave the earth if not better than we found it, at least not worse, so future generations can enjoy it equally. The healthcare industry produces a lot of consumables and if they are produced from renewables, it will play a large part in preserving the earth’s natural resources.

What challenges do you face in ensuring your products are organically produced?

It’s not so much a challenge as an opportunity to make the minimal ingredients I use in each product extremely effective. I only use certified organic ingredients and everything is made in small batches by hand, so I have 100 per cent quality control.

Tell us a bit more about what you offer? What are some of your most popular products? 

I offer organic and vegan skincare all handcrafted from certified organic ingredients. The most popular is the face range, specifically the Moisture+ Day Cream and the Rescue+ Face Balm. I get a lot of mail from folks who have told me how these two products have helped their skin clear up and reduce wrinkles, which in turn boosts their confidence.
