Like most things these days, the beauty industry is going through major changes.
In years past, beauty was an extension of fashion. It was all about keeping up with the latest trend, visiting the department store beauty counter, and feeling like a fashionista while sporting a bold new look. Girls just wanna have fun, right?

“Kaibae uses wild crafted plants, as nature intended, not modified by man. Nature shaped these plants in the wild, concentrating vital nutrients, making them hardy and beautiful, ensuring longevity in the harsh environments of the Ocean, the Amazon and the Savanna. There is a wisdom within plants that organize their nutrients to live long. It is that wisdom that Kaibae is bottling to make people healthy and beautiful. These ancient plants will disappear if we do not capture that wisdom and vitality. We can only save these plants by supporting communities to use these plants wisely, by creating sustainable harvesting opportunities which ultimately protects the environment. These plants once lost now are found, and they are precious to the survival of the planet and humanity.” -Dr. Luc Maes, Kaibae Co-Founder
