Our Story

From avocado seed to global brand … the Faith in Nature story

 

So where did Faith in Nature begin?

Within the hustle and bustle of New York City, Rivka Rose had an innate passion for nature from a young age. On many a visit to the grocery store she would buy Avocado Seeds (whilst a superfood now..a rarity then!) , plant them, and watch them grow. As time passed, Rivka moved from growing seeds to producing herbal ointments, mixing products in her kitchen sink and hand picking the raw ingredients!

After a move to Scotland, dealing with the change of weather, Rivka developed a moisturiser..ideal against the harsher Scottish winds. And thus Faith in Nature began. Her vision was to create an affordable beauty and skincare range for everyone to use from natural, vegetable sources, which were animal-cruelty free and environmentally friendly. This was a unique vision in the UK where even the most ‘natural’ ranges used mineral oil as a base ingredient and synthetic perfumes.

Numerous visits to the chemist for ingredients and bottles, and trips to London to pitch her products and sell from her rucksack, Rivka realised that the world of organic and fair trade didn’t exist. It wasn’t fashionable, and it wasn’t mainstream, but with persistence and passion, Rivka created a range of products.

40 years later, and with 40 years heritage, what Faith in Nature stood for then is still true now; Ethics, Quality, High standards, Value for money.

And to this day.. Rivka still grows her avocado seeds.
