Native Plants and Botanicals from Katya’s Motherland
Katya’s love for herbal remedies bloomed from an early age.
Growing up in Russia, she recalls her mother and grandmother using native plant remedies as medicine and overall support for the body’s health - internally and externally.Her grandmother was a powerful healer who was deemed a miracle worker.
This imprint from her childhood, her own battle with cystic acne and other ailments inspired her studies of herbalism and aromatherapy, and many of the powerfully healing botanicals Katya grew up using are infused into her expertly crafted formulas.
Malaya Organics is Katya’s homage to her heritage and to the healers that gave her the gift of plant medicine.
You will find some of the ingredients Katya grew up with in most of Malaya Organic’s core products:
Siberian Cedar Nut Oil
Sea Buckthorn Oil
The Magic of the Taiga’s - Siberian Cedar Nut Oil
The Siberian Cedar Nut Oil is one of the most unique ingredients in our cult favorite Rejuvenating Face Serum.
It’s an unusual ingredient in the beauty industry, and the oil we use comes from a very unique place.
We source our Siberian Cedar Nut Oil directly from the Taiga region, from a community of people who live in accordance with the teachings of a Shaman known for her incredible healing powers and living in harmony with nature.
The people hand-gather the Cedar nuts and use hand-built, wooden cold press machines to press them so that the oil is never compromised by coming in contact with metals.
This precious oil is very dear to our founder because it is so effective and is also inspired by her heritage.
Growing up in Russia, Cedar nuts and oil were praised for their health benefits and skin-loving properties. It is one of the few substances in nature that has been scientifically proven to kill h-pylori bacteria in the gut.
Our Wildcrafted, Virgin and Cold Pressed oil is rich in Vitamins F, E, B1, B2 and B3, beta- carotene, essential amino acids, magnesium, zinc, iron, copper, iodine, and fatty acids omega-6 and omega-9.
Its benefits for the skin are unparalleled - it strengthens the natural skin barrier, protects from free radicals and the environment and is super moisturizing.
This oil keeps skin supple and youthful, it’s nourishing, suitable for sensitive skin, bactericidal, fungicidal, anti-viral, helps repair problematic skin (acne, eczema, rosacea, dermatitis, psoriasis) and gives the skin an overall revitalized, fresh look with a healthy glow!
Rare, Healing Wild Bee Neem Honey
Wild Bee Neem Flower Honey is very unique and rare. It is the start ingredient in our Advanced Repair Mask.
We source it from wild bees that live free in their natural habitat, an environment and ecosystem protected by the Indian organization sustainably harvesting their honey.
Neem Flower Honey is collected from wild bees that only pollinate the Neem flowers. It stands in a category of its own amongst healing honey nectars, since it’s imbued with the magically healing pollen of the Neem plant.
In Ayurvedic medicine, Neem is considered one of the most healing medicinal herbs. It is used as an analgesic, alterative, antibacterial, antitumor, immunomodulatory, and much more.
Specifically for skin, it was used for a myriad of ailments including acne, wounds, eczema, skin ulcers, ringworm, scabies, and even leprosy.
