Welcome to Gaia Organics

Gaia Organics is an authentically owned family business and manufacturers of natural & organic skin and healthcare products.  They have been stalwarts in the industry since 1994.

Skincare products are naturally preserved, enriching organic oils (kalahari melon seed & jojoba) used for supreme skin restoration due to sun damage via our flagship Nutricell (bio and royal) formulations. Green tea used in prevention of skin cancer. Focus on skin renewal using anti-ageing alpha-hydroxy fruit acid toner complexes.


The health range is focused on Oxygen therapy.  They were the first company to import organically grown Chinese green tea in it’s whole-leaf form without being blended with black tea rendering the Gaia tea of top quality.

Our History

Gaia  began under the original name of “Rainbow Organic Herbs” formulated by Stuart Thomson along with his wife Lettie in 1983 where they began trading their small range in Knysna, along the Garden Route, South Africa.  From there the business grew to a few health shops who wished to stock this natural and beautifully fragranced range.

In 1994 Stuart formed the Gaia Research Institute and registered the company trading as Gaia Organics.

Since the Thomson’s retirement in 2011, Claudia Wantling (Lettie’s daughter) who had been under tutelage for over 15 years began the journey of taking the company to new heights along with her team consisting of Alan, Nomazizi and Phikiswa.

Gaia Organics continue to produce products that are authentic in nature but also by introducing new standards and ingredients to meet industry demand.

Gaia’s health therapies such as 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide and alkalizing magnesium peroxide oxygen powder have assisted many with overall health and wellness.

Our  products are not factory produced or mass distributed but carefully and lovingly hand-crafted.

We welcome the individual Gaia follower as well as selected health shops, beauty salons, nutritional wellness concerns of an authentic nature.

Yours sincerely,
Claudia Wantling – Director
28 Longships Drive, Plettenberg Bay in the heart of the Garden Route, South Africa.
