About Us

Gaia Organics is a range of hand-crafted natural and organic skin care products.

GAIA began under the original name of “Rainbow Organic Herbs” formulated by Stuart Thomson and my mom Lettie Thomson, trading their small range on the market under the shady oak trees in Knysna, a small coastal town along the Garden Route, South Africa, in 1983.

In 1994 we registered as the company Gaia Research under the brand name of Gaia Organics.  Our first export took place to Germany as well as the UK in that year.  With the burst of the technological era, we now have many individual customers worldwide.

Our initial health shops stocking Gaia Organics, some dating back 20 years are Fruits and Roots in Bryanston, Die Boord Pharmacy in Stellenbosch, Organic Living in Constantia, The Mustard Seed in Grahamstown,  are original and still very loyal outlets.

We are now in our 2nd generation and Claudia Wantling, along with the team consisting of Alan, Nomazizi and Phikiswa, continue to produce products with commitment, passion and love.

Therapies such as 35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide, alkalizing, pure Magnesium Peroxide Oxygen Powder form part of our oxygen health range, notwithstanding the flagship organically grown Chinese Green Tea have assisted many with overall health and wellness.

Our  products are not factory produced or mass distributed, but carefully and lovingly hand-crafted, and our followers are as far afield as Germany, United Kingdom, Netherlands, France, Australia as well as various parts on the African continent.

We welcome the individual Gaia follower, as well as selected health shops, beauty salons, nutritional and lifestyle / wellness centre’s of authentic nature.

Yours sincerely,
Claudia Wantling Director, Gaia Organics / Gaia Research, Plettenberg Bay, South Africa
