Australia’s leading organic baby skincare brand, GAIA, launches in Sri Lanka
GAIA, the trusted natural and organic skincare range in Australia, with a global presence in over 23 countries, held their grand launch event in Sri Lanka, at the Hilton Colombo, on the 19th of August with exclusive agency partners Nyth Global Venture Pvt. Ltd.
Established by Directors, Fazal Ahamed and Mifra Sadikeen, Nyth Global Venture Pvt. Ltd. was created with the goal of partnering with renowned, world-class quality, natural and organic brands to cater to the niche yet growth intensive Sri Lankan market for toxin free, natural products. Committed to quality and excellence, the company partners with institutions that create natural and extraordinary products and services, while reducing their impact on the environment through green practices.
Nyth Global Venture Pvt. Ltd. launched GAIA, in Sri Lanka with its founder Michelle Vorginec, as they felt that there was a gap in the market for this segment of high quality, naturally derived, certified organic, thoughtfully designed, innovative, and safe skincare products.
The certified organic oils and unique blends of pure and natural ingredients used in all GAIA products mean that they are incredibly safe and gentle to use and don’t contain any hidden toxins and irritants that are harmful. Perfect for use on your baby and children’s sensitive skin as well as mums to be, especially since your skin absorbs about 60 percent of what’s applied on it.
GAIA products have been winners of several prestigious Australian and international awards since its inception to date, including Mother and Baby, My child excellence awards, Cozycot parenting and more.
Speaking to the press and invited guests GAIA Skin Naturals’ founder Michelle Vorginec said, “We believe that what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in it, which is why all our ingredients are natural and toxin free. Our products use certified organic oils and are not tested on animals, which mean they are ‘cruelty free’ and ‘vegan friendly’.”
GAIA was founded by Michelle as her eldest son suffered, like many children do, from eczema. Unable to find products that didn’t irritate or dry her baby’s skin she created her own and GAIA Natural Baby was born. Following on the success of this, GAIA Pure Pregnancy, HIT NITZ 4 6, Skin + Body ranges were created.
Mifra Sadikeen of Nyth Global Ventures, being a mother to young children herself, felt an intense responsibility to give them the best possible start, which included using natural, toxin free products on her beautiful babies. When researching products of this nature she came across GAIA Skin Naturals and loved using their products as much as her children did, and they did exactly what they promised. This tried and tested personal experience with GAIA turned her into a passionate advocate for the use of natural and organic skincare products.
Today, many parents are inundated with advice on what to feed their children and how to create safe home environments for babies, but many are still completely unaware of the potential risks posed by everyday basics, body washes and other essential cosmetics. Yet, there’s growing concern that some ingredients used in these products may be inflammatory, toxic and cause a host of diseases including cancer.
GAIA creates natural, toxin-free products specifically targeted to moisturize and are free from ingredients known to irritate sensitive skin, making it eczema friendly.
The GAIA range of products in Sri Lanka include the Natural Baby bath and body washes, shampoo, wipes, talc-free powder, body lotion, massage oil, soothing cream and more. The Pure Pregnancy range includes the belly butter, nipple cream and belly oil. There is also the extremely effective and successful HIT NITZ 4 6 range which provides an easy, toxin free, two-step system to help control head lice. All these products are available online at www.gaia.lk with island wide delivery, at selected Healthguard outlets and at MILK at 44A Horton Place, Colombo 07.
Nyth Global Venture was set up with the ethos of bringing award winning, natural and organic brands to mums in Sri Lanka, keeping them and their precious bundles of joy, happy and safe from harmful toxins. They strongly believe in helping parents give their children a better, safer start.
