Emily Rohr has worked in regional Australia with traditional aboriginal communities for more than 20 years. The old desert people of Yulparitja use bush medicines and would often send her to collect plants and boil them up, teaching her to access hundreds of years of medicinal bush secrets. With the help of her father, a dermatologist and armed with a book of formulas dating back to the 1890s through generations of chemists on her husband’s side, Emily created Rohr Remedy.
Rohr Remedy’s unique story is the combination of this knowledge in bush medicine and scientifically proven pharmaceutical formulas. The Land Rights movement saw many of her friends attain their land. Through their desire to generate income from their land, she started making skincare basing the formula on her family recipes and adding bush medicines from the country. The brand supports ethical trading and environmentally sustainable collection of wild harvested native plants, by working with the indigenous land owners in Australia.
The brand understands that no two days are the same and no two people will have the same type of skin. By using the whole of these native plants, their extracts work synergistically with your skin, allowing your skin to draw down on what it needs. She has created a range that is suitable for all skin types and conditions. The entire skincare line is made in Australia and is free from parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, Propylene Glycol, sulphates, synthetic fragrances, Bisphenol A (BPA), artificial colours, aluminium and silicones.
