FROM THE EARTH, THROUGH GENERATIONS
From the earth, through the generations: Omorovicza is rooted in Budapest’s unique geology. Following a tectonic collision, Budapest was formed in the same moment as the Himalayas. This formed a massive fissure, where waters plunge right down and are imbued with minerals, before being delivered to the surface and discovered by the various waves of humans to inhabit Budapest, and benefit from its waters. Among those inspired by this geological marvel was the Omorovicza family, who created the Racz Fürdő, or thermal bath, the first Omorovicza Institute.
At the turn of the millennium, Stephen de Heinrich de Omorovicza was living in Budapest, where he met his wife, Margaret, who was chief of staff at the US embassy. When Stephen and Margaret de Heinrich de Omorovicza experienced the powerful effects of Budapest’s mineral-rich waters at the thermal bath Stephen’s ancestor built, they were inspired to found Omorovicza, bringing the benefits to all. They established Omorovicza, inspired by the curative effects of Budapest’s bathing culture, with the idea of harnessing the waters’ potential – the ritual, the experience, the effectiveness – for everyone. Enlisting the help of a laboratory of dermatology, Margaret and Stephen developed and patented Omorovicza’s Healing Concentrate™, launching the brand in 2006.
Budapest’s healing waters have long been known to help soothe, repair and protect skin, the result of the 26 different minerals that occur naturally in the thermal waters, thanks to the unique geological properties of the city. Over time, science has been able to prove what thermal water devotees have known for millennia: that this naturally occurring elixir has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antioxidant properties, and can even help regenerate the skin by boosting levels of hydration, oxygenation and proteins, such as collagen. It’s this that is captured in Omorovicza’s patented Healing Concentrate™.
Our patented and clinically proven ingredient powers every one of our products, delivering a potent distillation of Budapest’s thermal waters via biofermentation and encapsulation.
We believe your skin should experience the best therapeutic ingredients available, so we use the finest natural ingredients at the heart of our formulations. We formulate with a goal of 100% natural ingredients, however where skin will benefit from actives not available in a natural form, we enhance our products with synthetic ingredients, clearly stating what we have used and why. It is our policy to exclude parabens, silicons, phthalates, oxybenzone, talc, and synthetic colours and fragrances. When formulating, we engage a sophisticated, scientific process that values efficacy and integrity.
