Aubrey Hampton was born on an organic farm in rural Indiana and was educated in New York City. He learned, from the age of nine, how to make herbal cosmetics from his mother. A phytochemist and herbalist, he founded Aubrey Organics® in 1967 with two natural products he formulated in his own kitchen-Relax-R-Bath and GPB Hair Conditioner. Since then he has created over 200 hair, skin and body care products, which are internationally recognized as the most natural herbal products available. Nearly every health food store in the United States and Canada carries his products, which are also sold throughout Europe, Asia and South America. Aubrey's list of “firsts” in the industry is impressive. He was first to use coconut fatty acids in hair and skin care; first to formulate cosmetic products with jojoba oil, evening primrose, blue camomile, Rosa Mosqueta® and Matcha green tea; first to develop a natural preservative with citrus seed extract and vitamins A, C and E; and the first cosmetic manufacturer to be certified as an organic processor (in 1994).
