Mokosh was founded in 2006 by Dr. Marion O'Leary, a former veterinarian, pathologist and medical scientist. She was concerned about the long-term health effects of harmful preservatives and other synthetic ingredients on our skin. Many of which are derived from environmentally damaging palm oil, are needed to stabilise the oil-water emulsion. She decided it was time to reinvent the way we make and use skin care, as one of the world's handful of preservative-free, synthetic-free, palm oil free brands.
A short time later she met Jayne Bland, who has years of experience and passion for all things organic, and soon we began working together. Jayne introduced her to the ancient Indian science of Ayurveda, which inspired and influenced how they formulated their products. The result is 10 years of research and experimenting, refining and perfecting the range. They don’t compromise on what goes into Mokosh products - only the purest, most beneficial ingredients; nor do they compromise on what stays out - synthetic ingredients and plastic packaging will never be a part of Mokosh products.
