Angela, born in the Netherlands in 1965, lived throughout Europe as a young woman. She was greatly influenced by her 16 years living with a Chinese family and many years of travel throughout all of Europe and China experiencing an extensive variety of arts, sciences, and cultural traditions. After her Homeopathic education, Angela moved to the United States in 1996.
Angela has since studied and practiced natural medicine with an additional education in Naturopathy, Western and Chinese herbal therapies as an Herbalist, therapeutic nutrition, and Aromatherapy. Angela’s worldly education blends her knowledge of traditional uses of plants with modern science and contemporary healthcare strategies. She has helped and continues to help many people reverse difficult health problems.
With her view on health and wellness and natural beauty rooted in the ancient traditions of holistic medicine, it is Angela’s belief that the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of life are closely interconnected and equally important to bringing one's system into balance, health and beauty. By using a deeply holistic approach, Angela creates beautiful professional skin care products using only food grade USDA certified organic and Wildcrafted/unsprayed ingredients. Having respect and reverence for the intended user, Angela's botanical formulas meet strict quality control measures, never compromising the bioavailability by using toxic fillers, chemical preservatives, or any other synthetic ingredient.
Through her unique custom blended botanical formulations, she addresses the skin, recognizing that everything that is put onto the skin enters into the body and becomes one with the person. Once a product is applied to the skin, the immediate therapeutic effects assist the body’s own mechanism to promote healing of self on physical, emotional and spiritual levels and always perfectly attuned to the skin's specific needs, protecting it against premature aging and restoring its natural balance. As both beauty and health begin with intention, so is it Angela’s intention to offer the best in luxury and purity through her product offering.
Today, when Angela is not formulating more incredible products, she can be found lecturing or seeing people in her private practice. Angela knows that improved health and homeostasis is available to everyone. If we live in harmony with nature by following nature’s laws, then good health is inevitable.
“It is my hope to reach as many people as I can, improving their health and life with sound knowledge and truly organic skin care products."
“At OBVITA we help people feel better, look better and most importantly be better through love, education, and wholesome organic skin care products”
The name OBVITA loosely translates to ‘concerning life’ in Latin. OBVITA Organics’ origin is one of altruistic health education as the organic product suite was born to provide our clients of our natural health clinic with truly natural food grade and cruelty free skin care products to a conventional world of hidden and not so hidden toxicity. The mission grew to include only clean/unsprayed ingredients derived from Nature so one can be nourished and pampered with organic skin care products & cosmetics that offer a pure and beautiful experience, while helping to conserve our planet and protect life on it.
Originally called OBVITA Natural Health Education and Research, we spent considerable time with our natural health clinic where we facilitate the education of the body, mind and spirit relationship and the impact of nutrition and natural living on well-being. Today we have two great focuses; OBVITA Organics; producing some the world’s finest skin care products and OBVITA Natural Health which focuses on natural therapies.
Our business plan calls for continued handmade production keeping local people employed and the personalized love in everything we produce … and while we are a business, our bottom line is natural health and well-being.
There are a growing number of organic skin care companies and some outstanding companies that have been around for a while now. At OBVITA, we commit to purity and safety of product with no plans to ever change this important precept. What makes us different from other organic skin care companies today is that we make our products from scratch without the use of cheap fillers, nor do we use pre-manufactured bases, synthetic fragrances, and toxic unnatural ingredients of any kind. We take it a step further by using only food grade USDA certified organic and wildcrafted ingredients, which contain so many more antioxidants and nutrients than non-organic ingredients. Our products are skillfully formulated to increase hydration and support cellular regeneration by nourishing the skin with the highest quality nutrients, Essential Fatty Acid rich oils, antioxidants and nourishing botanicals that nature has to offer. All with professional results!
