Gaia Research trading under the brand name of Gaia Organics was founded by principle researcher and formulator Stuart Thomson in 1990, 26 years ago. Their journey began with the education and manufacture of natural skin and health products. Since the Thomson’s retirement in 2011, Claudia Wantling has taken the company to new heights not only manufacturing and supplying local health shops, wellness centres, beauty salons and health pharmacies across South Africa, but also manufacturing according to EU natural and organic standards to 4 independent distributors abroad.
The Gaia skin care range is carefully formulated to incorporate leading edge ingredients such as Kombucha extract, Organically grown Green Tea extract and the use of limited plant oils to prevent rancidity. Our natural Alpha-Hydroxy Fruit Acid toners provide a natural anti-ageing formula. The Gaia range is suitable for all skin types but focusing predominantly on dry and damaged skins with their revolutionary Royal Bio Nutricell (Gold) formulation assisting with skin cancer and pigmentation problems.
What Makes Gaia Organics Personal Care Products Unique?
- First principle: Do no harm to humans, animals and the earth
- Naturally preserved to prevent rancidity
- Not Tested on Animals
- High hyaluronic acid derived from Kombucha Mushroom and Vitamin C
- Where you see * it denotes certain ingredients are organically sourced - (Jojoba Oil*, Sesame Oil*, Green Tea extract*, Kelp*, Lavender*, Rose Geranium*, Coconut Oil*, Comfrey Allanton*, Kombucha extract*)
- Pioneered fruit acids, green tea, colloidal silver, and kombucha extract use in personal care products, the latter, a unique source of bio-active cell regenerative ingredient substances otherwise only cruelly animal kingdom sourced (animal placenta)
- A 30+ year natural product research knowledge base and 15+ year formulations and consumer feedback experience base
- Nature’s finest ingredients, enhanced by rigorous modern chemistry, including selective natural ingredients, without which no skin care product can be truly safe in use
- Strictly limited use of plant oils to avoid oxidation, the cause of premature aging, actually accelerated by most such products and especially crude, so-called “natural” oils
- Genuine fruit acid complexes pioneered by Gaia Research were introduced way ahead of all competitors and whilst others reduced concentrations due to irritation, Gaia’s products, tamed by green tea and uniquely formulated as toners, remain non-irritatiing and the most potent, safest and efficacious visible age reversing AHA products available internationally
Must say…I’ve been using Gaia since last year November. I bought it at the farmers market in Sedgefield…and since then my skin has improved dramatically. I absolutely love your products! Rozanne – East London
I am 35 years old, environmentally aware person and my Mom recommended your product to me, I was slightly skeptical because of the good price, within a week my skin and face had improved drastically, I had never before used a natural product (I wish I could tell you what I was using, well-know brand with a price more than double).
Highly recommend the Moisturiser and Toner combination for clear, glowing skin that heals and closes the pores. These organic natural products are of the highest quality, the proof is most certainly in the pudding. I am definitely going to try the GOLD range next. The lady I buy the product from at the Wild Oats market, in Sedgefield, is so friendly and sweet, efficient and caring, lovely person to deal with – THANK YOU.

Gaia Organics Pigment Controlling Night cream – Testimonial
I’ve had pigmentation marks on my face for the last few years & I have tried so many products & treatments that barely made a difference. I’ve recently started using the pigmentation night cream & am so impressed! I’ve already noticed that the brown patches have lightened & I’ve only been using the cream for one week. Thank-you!!!!! Bernice
I really only talk from results. I was a professional triathlete and mountain biker, so my skin took some hammering, but I could clearly see a difference when i started to use Gaia and when I put the cell generating moisturizer on my skin after I bought it now, I could immediately feel the softness and I love the smell - Hannele Steyn – Passion 4 Wholeness
