How it all happened and who is behind the brand Orientana?
A few words from me – creator and founder of Orientana brand: My name is Anna Wasilewska and I am a Polish businesswoman whose passion is natural style of living and Asia. Few years ago when travelling through Asian countries I came with the idea to start a cosmetics brand that would be based on Asian plants and would be totally natural. I was astonished by natural beauty of Asian woman and their methods of skin care. I left my job in capital markes and started to develop my own business, surrounded by cosmetic experts and scientists. I decided to produce Orientana cosmetics mainly in India and base them on Ayurvedic formulations. The facory has not only ISO certificates but also Ayurvedic certificate. All formulas are beeing approved by me and believe me I am strict in ingredients. They need to be natural and safe. So in my cosmetics you will not find SLS,SLES, ALS, mineral oils, paraffine, phtalates, parabens and other harmful products but you will find extracts from Asian plants such as ginger, amla, brahmi, neem, ashwagandha. I also offer snail cream that is very natural (more than 98% of ingredients are natural), also in Orientana we use snail mucin that is collected without harm to snails. I love animals and most of my products are for vegetarian and vegan.
I started in 2011 with 9 cosmetics. Now my portfolio comprises ca. 80 products and I am still working on new formulas. Orientana is well recognised in Poland as natural cosmetics with Asian plants. It is present in cosmetic chains and pharmacies all over Poland. Now we made it accessible abroad – you can buy them in our e-shop.
