About

My name is Joy Luria.

I founded Aahana Organics in October of 2015 although I had been making products for private clients for many years. Aahana Organics is a topically applied orchestra of fine music with every note perfectly in tune with you and your body.  The daily cleansing routine becomes an introduction that unfolds into a story. The melody begins merging what your body's needs. Aahana Organics delivers a vast range of nutrients, vitamins, amino acids and antioxidants to your skin. This offers the body a path to a healthier tomorrow. I give to you a worldly, comprehensive and complex product line to nurture you as you walk a new path of health and beauty. I invite you to transform into the best version of yourself. Spread your wings and fly!

Aahana Organics is wholefood skincare.

Aahana Organics takes great pride in producing a line of skincare that uses whole food ingredients because your skin deserves it!

 

Organic and natural skincare products are currently unavailable on the market.

Why did I feel the need to create Aahana Organics and what sets it apart? 

Perhaps I should share how it all began. I was with a client one day and after a lengthy discussion she confessed she was not taking her herbs regularly. In fact, she stated, "If you put them in my coffee, I wouldn't forget to take my herbs!" This single statement got me thinking…what if I put them in your skin care products? Thus Aahana Organics was born.

 

All Aahana Organic products begin with a proprietary herbal oil made specifically for that product. Each herb is chosen for a specific set of attributes intended to support the formula.  Herbal oils can take up to a month to make.  It can be tedious and cumbersome, but well worth the time! I have one client who calls the herbal oils “liquid gold”.

 

The herbal oils are then diluted for daily enjoyment with carrier oils from around the world, which creates highly nutritious serums your skin will love to drink up.  I handcraft every formula in small batches to keep as close to the original spirit and art of product making as possible.  All the techniques I use are based in the ancient ways of cosmetic making and only updated to our century so we can reap all of their benefits.

 

Your body is AMAZING at repairing and sustaining when you give it what it needs. Aahana Organics is comprised of harmonious wholefood ingredients that your skin can absorb and use to maximize your best results. The more nutrients you give the skin...the better the results. Just like our stomachs, the skin can only absorb so much at a time. Frequent use in controlled doses/portions is often more beneficial than infrequent over-use.


Aahana Organics is food for your skin. Meals are often a time of gathering, connecting, sharing and showing love so why shouldn't we approach our daily beauty regime the same way? When you take the time to feed your skin you are essentially expressing love, admiration and appreciation for your body. This time is sacred and needs to be treated as such. Aahana Organics allows one to nourish the self by creating a sacred space of peace as you begin and end the day.

Did you know?

It takes 60 roses to produce just ONE drop of pure rose essential oil! 

That means 15 milliliters of pure rose essential oil = 65 pounds of rose petals! 

ONE ounce of pure essential oil = 60,000 pounds of rose petals!

Aahana Organics uses herbs, carrier oils, butters, waxes and real essential oils that have been carefully selected for the beneficial qualities they impart to the formula. Each ingredient imparts a distinct aroma, some more aggressively than others, but together they all contribute to the luscious scent of the product. 

 

Embracing an organic color scheme

 

The color of Aahana Organics products reflects the ingredients.  There are no dyes, iron oxides or micas used to produce the desired color. Some soaps may have an orange, pink, red, green or black hue but this is due to clay, charcoal or herbs.  Every ingredient has a distinct purpose for the formula.

 

Embracing whole ingredients for their whole value

Aahana offers your body beneficial products free from harsh and damaging chemicals.

 

According to the EWG (Environmental Working Group), the average woman uses 12 personal care products and/or cosmetics a day containing an average of 168 different chemicals.  Teenagers use an average of 13 products daily increasing their exposure to toxic build-up. The Aahana Organics philosophy is centered on the belief that everyone deserves familiarity with every ingredient in one’s skincare ritual. Everyone deserves the peace of mind to know their beauty products are safe since the ingredients end up in your bloodstream!
