In the late 1980s, a team of scientists and beauty experts had a Eureka moment: they realized that the same plants used in traditional medicine could be used to solve modern-day skin dilemmas. ORIGINS officially launched in 1990 and quickly spread to 22 countries around the world. Since then, the brand has continued to push boundaries by fusing proven plant extracts with advanced scientific know-how. Today, over 100 scientists labor at the ORIGINS Natural Resource Laboratories to research and test new formulas.
