Rohr Remedy specialises in skin care that combines the unique and rare bush medicines of Australia with scientifically proven pharmaceutical formulas. The range is formulated using only wild-harvested native plant extracts (wild harvesting is even more potent than organic and plantation harvested ingredients) and other natural ingredients rich in essentials vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, antibacterials and folates that help with skin regeneration, rejuvenation and restoration.
Founder Emily spent years as an indigenous arts specialist in Broome where she learnt from tribal elders to identify bush plants worth extracting like Vitamin C-rich Kakadu plum, an astringent type of evergreen tree called Lilly Pilly, and the moisturizing, antibacterial Gumbi Gumbi shrub. With the aid of her father, a dermatologist and chemist husband, she set out to create an optimal skin range free from parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, propoylene glycol, sulphates, synthetic fragrances, Bisphenol A (BPA), artificial colours, aluminium and silicones. so gentle it can be used on infants and children.
“Our native flora harbours extraordinary natural remedies which, when used correctly, can protect and nourish our skin,” Emily says.
“The Kakadu plum has 800 times the vitamin C of blueberries. We have kunzea, honey myrtle, desert lime, boab seeds, Lilly Pilly, Quandong, seaweed, and so many wildflowers that can be used.
“It makes perfect sense to use them to protect ourselves from the very harsh environment in which they grow. They’re purpose-built!”
