The story of Mt. retour begins not in Australia, but in France. After failing to find a natural skincare product that was gentle on his sensitive skin, founder Pisan Chowvalit travelled to the South of France to study aromatherapy. It was here that he discovered the natural healing power of herbs, botanicals and organic essential oils.
Armed with this new knowledge Pisan returned to Australia and bought an organic farm in the pristine Blue Mountains. There he grew his own herbs and botanicals, and the seeds of the Mt. retour brand were sown.
Each natural ingredient that is selected for the range boasts incredible healing and therapeutic properties – organic lavender, organic rose, organic ylang ylang, calendula and certified organic frankincense, organic jojoba oil, organic apricot oil and certified organic beeswax are but some of the powerful herbs and botanicals utilised in the Mt. retour range.
Pisan’s aim was simple: to create a range of gentle, certified organic essential oils and skincare products, safe for all skin types. As such all Mt. retour products contain only the purist, most natural, certified organic ingredients available. It was Pisan’s vision to create products that were truly safe, truly certified organic and truly affordable. It is this ethos that has helped the Mt. retour brand flourish.
Today Mt. retour is distributed to over 15 countries and is a leading certified organic skincare brand in Asia. It meets the highest certified organic standards and is accredited by Australian Certified Organic (ACO) and the Organic Food Chain (OFC). It contains no harsh synthetic chemicals including no artificial fragrances, sulphates, parabens or petrochemicals.
