People Botanical Body Care is based in New York. It is the people and city of New York City, with it's wonderful fashion, music, art, self-expression, creativity, community, and joy, that is the inspiration for our brand. Some of our products are made in Australia, some are made here in USA, and some are made in Europe. All our products use native Australian botanical extracts and oils in the formulations. We have been making plant-based, salon quality hair care, body care and skin care products for over thirty-five years.

We started making hair care and body care products back in the eighties. Our whole family was vegetarian and there were very few plant-based products available, and of course there was no online shopping or internet back then. We owned and operated exclusive hair and beauty salons, including locations at leading five-star resorts and hotels. We were living and enjoying the health and wellness benefits of a plant-based diet and lifestyle and wanted to extend that to our personal care products and share that with everyone. We also didn't see why people living a plant-based lifestyle couldn't enjoy luxurious and effective products made without animal derived ingredients or toxic chemicals. So, we started making professional salon quality products that were made without animal products and without animal testing, and without petrochemical ingredients. We were among the first to introduce vegetarian and vegan hair care and body care products to retail stores, and were also among the first to introduce plant-based products to hotels and resorts way back in the 80's.

Our motivation has always been to create luxurious high-quality hair, body and skin care products for everyday use that were more sustainable, highly effective, and enjoyable to use. We love great smelling, luxurious products that deliver superior professional care for your hair and body, but not at the expense of the environment, animals or the health of our skin and body.

We were soon exporting our plant-based products to Japan, USA (Whole Foods Markets), Canada, UK (Holland & Barrett, Waitrose, Marks & Spencer), France (Galleries Lafayette, Auchan Supermarkets, Douglass Perfumeries), Sweden (Sephora) and many other countries.

We started developing our new brand, People Botanical Body Care many years ago. It is the culmination of years of research, development and testing, creating plant-based products, and owning and operating hair and beauty salons and spas.


We use plant-derived raw materials in our curated aromas, which are created exclusively for us. These are different to the petrochemical based fragrances used in most mainstream products. The US FDA regulations requires us to use the term “Fragrance” in the ingredients lists on our packaging, even though that term is usually associated with petrochemical based fragrance, whereas our aroma blends are made with plant-derived raw materials.

organic ingredients

Many of the ingredients used in our formulations are certified organic. We do not state that on the labelling as some are certified by European or Australian organizations. The US FDA requires that only USDA (US Department of Agriculture) organic certification can be stated on labels.
