Our mission at Origins is to care for skin holistically using the power of plants and science. Fusing over 30 years of Origins’ expertise in plant science and skin physiology, our scientists at the Origins Biotech Discovery Labs strive to identify the high-performing, bioactive elements of ingredients derived from nature, then use these innovative findings to create transformative skincare formulas to help support and boost skin’s natural activities and noticeably improve how skin looks and feels.
