Orris was born out of a necessity to reconnect nature with craftsmanship. They believe cleansing is an integral part of any skincare ritual and should be a luxurious and indulgent experience. The result is a luxurious line of artisanal botanical soaps for face and body handcrafted in small batches in France.
Each cold process soap is hand-poured and hand-cut, using the finest oils, butters, and botanicals. Drawing from traditions such as Ayurveda, aromatherapy and Western herbal medicine, each of their soaps embodies a distinct persona and addresses particular skin concerns through the unique therapeutic and sensuous qualities of their natural ingredients.
It was founded by Kenneth Koo & Lani Dafter Le Berre, two creative souls and skincare lovers. They named their brand Orris inspired by the fragrant root of the Iris flower traditionally used in medicine and perfumery.
They struggled to find existing products on the market that were at once effective, enjoyable to use, and gentle enough for those suffering from sensitive, psoriasis and eczema prone skin. Orris' ethos is to use only the highest quality plant derived ingredients to craft a line of multipurpose and effective skincare products.
All their products are free of sulfates, surfactants, parabens, and synthetic fragrances and contain no animal fats or palm oil and are cruelty free.
