The ORÍKÌ Philosophy
ORÍKÌ embodies a new form of sophisticated expression in beauty, grooming and lifestyle. We believe in providing only the best products and the potency of nature coupled with research to create extraordinary personal care products.
We value knowing where our ingredients come from, the farmers who grow them, and connecting the human chain of hands that make every step possible from plant to profit, farm to factory, soil to skin, and botany to beauty. Our success is the success of every individual that touches the product across the value chain, and this keeps us motivated.
Our skin care, hair care and body care products represent a carefully deliberated array of products, meticulous attention to the scientifically-proven power of nature and the right mix of botanical extracts, vitamins, minerals, peptides and proteins.
We combine raw materials, all natural- resources and fair-trade ingredients, with a minimum 70% certified organic content, for visible and healthy results. Botanically based, we use potent plants, and 100% natural essential oils.
At ORÍKÌ, we champion social responsibility and giving-back by establishing programmes like ‘From Plant to Profit,’ our commitment to promote Sustainable Agriculture and empower farmers as a means of job creation, poverty reduction and economic development. The ORÍKÌ Foundation is a philanthropic asset of the company, supporting sustainable trade, youth women empowerment, environmental/clean energy initiatives, eco-conservation and collective relationships, while bestowing a true and meaningful reason to succeed.
The meaning of ORÍKÌ is “Your Crown/Your Origin”, and we believe it best reflects our intention to foster good natural things in the world and enrich the lives we touch, one responsible effective product at a time. Every customer should have an ORÍKÌ experience, utilizing ORÍKÌ products begets the beauty of a woman and the prestige of a man.
For ORÍKÌ, it’s simply the way business should be done.
Our Name Origin
We carefully considered a name that would best reflect the inspired fusion of our brand, blending natural & organic ingredients & scientific research to create extraordinary skin care, hair care and body products that are superior.
The word ‘ORIKI’ [Or.eek.e] has a rich ancient history in the Yoruba language, one of the predominant tribes and languages in Nigeria. The literal translation is “Your Crown/Your Origin” and an ORÍKÌ name is meant to inspire and bring out the best in an individual.
Just as ORÍKÌ is a cultural expression akin to the Continent of Africa, ORÍKÌ is a gateway between the best of nature and knowledge and a bridge from farm to bottle and botany to beauty.
Similar to the complex, sumptuous history of ORÍKÌ and its meaning; our formulas have been cultivated from a diverse portfolio of ancient botanicals and modern technology.
We love our name, not only for its rich history, but also because it’s simply beautiful, akin to our collection of natural and organic personal grooming products. We hope you agree.
