" After spending much of the last 20 years offshore I wanted to develop a product that incorporated some of the unique aspects of New Zealand. Our pristine seas are something we all grow up with, and so I was attracted to using our fabulous, nutrient rich kelp in a skin care range for an international market."
At Obiqo we combine the traditional and natural with the contemporary and some of the latest developments in marine bio-actives and the result is fabulous skin care based on sustainable and responsible use of our marine bounty.
“I was really excited about using Ecklonia Radiata kelp which grows in the pristine blue waters off New Zealand’s east coast. This wonderful kelp is a valuable and protected resource, and can be gathered only under license. Spending time looking at the remote and beautiful beaches where the kelp is found made me realise how fortunate we are to be surrounded by the pure southern oceans. An extract made especially for us from this kelp which is rich in vitamins, minerals and amino acids, is brought to you in all our Obiqo products.”
At the same time, Obiqo recognises the value of marine bioactives using peptide technology. Marine collagen for example plays an important part in maintaining optimal skin hydration, firmness and radiance, while marine elastin promotes suppleness and combats slackness, wrinkles and fine lines.
High quality formulation and manufacturing, and luxurious, internationally exciting packaging completes Obiqo skincare products.
Obiqo skincare combines the best of New Zealand's natural bounty with sophisticated marine bio-actives creating a new tradition of marine based skincare.
Imagine the sensation of walking beside a shining sea as the day begins.
That’s Obiqo. Alive. Refreshed. Renewed. Inspired.
