Utara Organics was founded by Amy Arnett-Smith on the North Shore of Kaua‘i. Due to a medical condition and skin sensitivity, Amy was in need of natural skincare products. In 2009 she started a line of mangosteen-based organic skincare.
After researching the fruit as a base for her products, Amy learned about its use in Southeast Asia for treating acne, wounds, and other skin conditions. She also found that the properties of mangosteen help to get rid of bacteria and inflammation in the body. Today, Utara Organics crafts all-natural skincare products including creams and serums using mangosteen and other ingredients grown on her farm!
