After struggling with adenomyosis and digestive issues for years because of hormonal imbalance, Raja Benzaitar discovered that most of the endocrine disruptors were to be found on the products we use on a daily basis like beauty products. Raja turned to nature to heal herself, She educated herself on the power of phytotherapy and botanicals and found herself going back to her Moroccan mums beauty secrets to avoid chemicals and toxins in her personal care products that were tremendously contributing to her hormonal imbalance.

Today, she made it a mission to help health-conscious people take care of their skin, hair and wellbeing without using toxins or harmful chemicals. Her story began with one simple idea and value: “Achieving Real Balance through adopting the Right Behavior”.

She now believes that inner and outer beauty is about finding real balance through caring for our body and mind while consuming responsibly.

Fusing her Moroccan heritage and swiss education, Raja Benzaitar founded RB ORGANICS with the firm belief that it is through a deeper connection with nature that we can really take care of our wellbeing while consuming responsibly and positively impact our planet. While evolving in the luxury market, the brand believes in eco-luxury and responsible luxury. They aim to reduce our ecological footprint as much as possible by using eco-friendly packaging and giving back more than 10% of their profits to positively impact the environment and the communities that contribute to the manufacturing process of their products. Raja believes that both the RB ORGANICS products and the people who use them will change the world one step at a time! She wants you to feel good while doing good to be at your best!
