Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
— Antoine de Saint-Exupery

As consumers, we very often spend so much of our time, effort and money trying to solve issues that affect us deeply, yet often the most elegant and effective solution is right in front of us. Original Human Co began as a way for a mother-daughter duo to address some serious and deeply affecting skin concerns like acne, eczema and rosacea. After throwing serious resources at the issue for years, the solution for us was to turn to natural, minimalist and clean, which in this case was plant-based ingredients that are gentle but effective.

Often, less is more.

This is where the concept of Original Human comes from. Most times, the best solution is something we intuitively connect with, and it’s time to embrace that.


The Idea

Create natural, minimalist but effective skin care using plant-based ingredients from southern Africa in small batches.

Each product is tailored to a specific concern and shines in its own right, but can also be mixed, matched, and layered to fit your routine. 

Quality & Commitment

When it comes to ingredients, the fewer mysteries, the better. Healthy skin starts with high quality ingredients focused on the essentials. No fillers, just goodness. 

And we never test on animals, period. 

100% Handmade

The most active natural ingredients are the freshest ingredients. 

Which is why everything we make is handmade, in small, limited batches to ensure absolute potency and effectiveness.
