“Staying true to our roots and being authentic is really important to our family. People are still blown away that we grow all our own herbs but our quality standards are really high.” ~Tara Cooper, Owner, Ohana Organics
Ohana Organics founder Tara Cooper started her Humboldt County-based company after she moved from Hawaii to California and found herself missing the scents and beauty of the Islands. In 2000, she launched a line of hand-crafted Hawaiian perfumes, botanically-scented organic shea butters and herbal salves, infused with organic herbs grown on the Cooper’s small farm. Recently Ohana Organics beat out 100 companies to win 2014 NEXTY Popular Vote Award in the Beauty and Natural Living category for their innovative Tattoo Butter, a vegan blend of organically-grown herbs and shea butter which naturally decreases tattoo healing time. The award was presented by New Hope Natural Media and Sterling-Rice Group and the winner was chosen by consumers, manufacturers and retailers in the natural products industry. Ohana Organics products are distributed to natural supermarkets, tattoo shops and boutiques across the United States, Canada and Australia.
