At the heart of OLUMES is a story of beauty and heritage, of the lush rainforests and clear seas of Borneo. It’s a story inspired by a land rich in biodiversity, where ancient wisdom and natural wonder intermingle.
Our founder, Aerin – a cosmetic chemist, found her inspiration in the time-honoured remedies of her homeland. These powerful botanical and marine extracts, safeguarded by the wise elders, encapsulated the rhythm of nature and the harmony of life that is intrinsic to Borneo.
Growing up in Borneo, Aerin was immersed in a culture where beauty and nature were inherently intertwined. She watched the wise elders use potent botanicals, treasures of the rainforests and seas, to maintain their timeless beauty. These early impressions left a profound mark, sparking a lifelong passion for skincare that is reflected in every OLUMES product.
