Written by Jenni Kulmala
Born in Siberia, with its harsh and remote landscapes, Siberia is one of the last few largely undiscovered territories in a world where almost every other corner has been explored. Here, nature is powerful, unspoiled and wild. In this large territory and into the Russian Far East, nature reserves have been preserved, allowing some of the most unique fauna and flora in the world to reign.
A wealth of endemic plant species thrive, with exceptional therapeutic properties. Traditionally, the herbs, berries and flowers of Siberia and Northern Russia were used to concoct ‘elixirs of youth’ and unique beauty treatments for Russian Tsars and the Imperial Family.
Their secrets have been handed down since the dawn of time, from generation to generation by local tribes native to Siberia. Herbs and plants from Siberia, that are able to survive in one of the most extreme environments on the planet, have developed powerful regenerating and antioxidant properties, offering unique health and beauty benefits for the skin.
Herbs, plants, flowers and berries are sourced from an unspoiled landscape, hand-picked by local Siberian natives, respecting the natural growing cycles. We pay premium prices for wild, manually harvested herbs and plants, in order to support small Siberian tribes and their communities, bringing positive changes to the lives of the native people of Siberia.
The Natura Siberica cosmetic range benefits from the strictest European certifications.
Natura Siberica’s products have been recognised internationally for their quality, originality and innovation – winning us many highly respected awards.

The Unique Language of Siberia
Our understanding of the herbs and plants used in our modern formulations began in the 1940’s. Russian botanists Lazarev and Brekhman studied more than 4000 thousand plants and herbs from Siberia, before identifying just 12 unique to the rest, that they named ‘adaptogens’. Having survived the Ice Age, these unique plants now possess rare qualities, since adapting to survive in -50⁰C temperatures and severe winds, by synthesising protective active ingredients and powerful antioxidants.
Scientists determined that the rare qualities in these adaptogenic herbs could be harnessed therapeutically for our own well-being and to help slow the skins ageing process.
Natura Siberica utilises a variety of herbs, plants and berries from Siberia, many of which are unfamiliar to the outside world.
