6th August 2015, Ayala Center Cebu – Oryspa had an intimate celebration as it leads the rice bran-based beauty and wellness products innovation in the country. Oryspa Spa Solutions is the first and the finest maker of rice bran-based health and beauty products in Cebu, offering products that provide instant relaxation and rejuvenation even when on the go!
The term “Oryspa” was coined from oryza sativa (the scientific name of rice) and spa, which gives the brand its identity – rice for spa. Rice bran, the main ingredient in Oryspa products, is the outer brown layer of the rice kernel usually discarded in the rice milling process, or used for growing livestock. Known as “tahop” in the Visayas, this centuries-old material is actually high in antioxidants and vitamins, making it a perfect ingredient for health, beauty and wellness products.
Laguna-based entrepreneur Sherill Quintana started researching about rice bran in 2007 and found that rice bran is rich in skin renewal Vitamin A, moisturizing Vitamin E, anti aging Vitamin B and antioxidant Omega-3. And when used topically, rice bran oil can help improve blood circulation and stimulate cell turnover.
Oryspa has three branches in Cebu – Second level Ayala Center Cebu, Upper Ground Floor of SM City Cebu and at the Ground Floor of Parkmall.
