Created by Nature. Crafted by Scientists
Indonesia-born Tri has an insider’s knowledge of personal care products. Over two decades in Asia as a chemist for multinational companies she saw what was in commercial products and how toxic, and sometimes ineffective, these ingredients can be. In Singapore, Tri became a certified aromatherapist with a passion for the healing power of plant-based products. In 2011, she and Ubbo co-founded Botanica Culture, where every product is completely natural, safe and effective.
Ubbo has lived and worked in Asia for more than 20 years, after beginning his career as a lecturer at a German university. As a chemical engineer, he was an expert in managing chemical plants, products and processes, including leading a team of chemists developing personal care products. For Ubbo, being the co-founder of Botanica Culture is the opportunity of a lifetime, where he can combine his attention to detail and quality with a passion for natural, sustainable solutions.
It all started with a problem
As chemists with years of experience developing and testing products, and managing large teams in multinational companies, we were used to solving complex problems. But this problem was more personal – Tri struggled with serious mouth issues: bleeding, swollen gums and tooth decay.
Chemicals aren’t the answer
We began to suspect the harsh chemicals found in regular oral care products, and driven by our growing discontent with the chemical industry, we used our knowledge and research experience to find a solution that could fully heal Tri’s teeth and was free from toxic ingredients, using only the power of plants.
From nature to the lab
Like all good scientists, we experimented. With Tri as the subject, we conducted our own clinical trial: analysing, mixing and testing a wide range of pure organic essential oils until we had formulated a safe, effective blend that healed Tri’s gum issues for good.
Botanica Culture is born
This special solution became our first product, Oral Botanica — born from a real problem and solved with rigorous science, using the power of natural botanicals. This approach is behind every product we create and every decision we make.
We have one goal in mind: to create better, simpler, cleaner products with unmatched quality, safety and efficacy.
We source the purest ingredients, apply cutting-edge science to give you the best daily-care solutions.”
