CELSUS Bio-Intelligence started in Boulder, Colorado with a friendship, a vision to benefit others, and a shared passion for business with integrity.
In the words of Co-founders Pieter Oosthuizen and Joshua Onysko (also founder of Pangea Organics): "We seeded our vision for a line of highly efficacious 'medi-organic' skin remedies on a 5,000-mile motorcycle ride across the Western United States. By the time we got back to Colorado, we were committed..."
Since leaving his native South Africa years before, Pieter had been contemplating ways in which he could ‘give back’ to the country that gave him so much. The question was how?
During their nights around the campfire, Pieter and Joshua drew on their shared expertise to create the plan for a sustainable venture that would fulfill their deep commitment to benefiting others and the environment.
By utilizing the powerfully regenerative botanicals and anti-oxidant rich oils of southern Africa, among others, CELSUS now promotes sustainable cultivation and harvesting and works to stimulate grass-roots economic development. And in the process, we create remedies that work exceptionally hard for you while being genuinely good for your skin.

We believe in the power of good science. We believe in the wisdom of nature. We believe in your commitment to take care of yourself. And we don’t believe in compromise. That’s why our products are formulated to deliver maximum efficacy and complete benefit to your skin and your body.
Healthy You, Healthy Planet.
We are committed to helping you while helping our planet. Our botanical ingredients are organically-grown and sustainably harvested, our packaging is sustainably produced, and our business practices support the well-being of our employees, our partners, and our clients.
Creating Positive Change.
We believe that profitable, socially responsible businesses can be an effective tool for creating positive change in today's world. Efficiency is the password of the new economy: optimize resources and results, and minimize impact. We strive to make this true from our sourcing of ingredients through our production process, and all the way to the benefits you derive from our products.
Ingredients for a Sustainable Future.
Income inequality is a growing concern worldwide. Our vision is to help close the gap by sourcing most of our botanical ingredients and oils to treat scars directly from small farmers in southern Africa and worldwide.
