In 2006 she co-founded the Mambino Organics brand of skin and body care products featuring simple plant-based, certified organic ingredients. Her philosophy is founded on the premise that scent, texture and marketing claims will not change your skin but live, raw ingredients will. She sources raw, environmentally sustainable ingredients of the highest quality directly from family owned organic and fair trade farms in various parts of the world, from countries such as Madagascar, Tahiti, Peru, Italy, Hungary and Bulgaria.
She was one of the first few companies to introduce to the U.S. market a line of holistic and 100% natural and organic products for expecting moms. Her approach based on holistic and naturopathic principles challenges some of society's fundamental beliefs relating to what is truly natural. At the time, truly natural products like this didn't exist. Most "natural" products were either filled with 'fake' natural ingredients, preserved with parabens, contaminated with synthetic chemicals, petroleum products or had as a sudsing agent, the ever-present sodium lauryl/laureth sulfate. 'Green' or sustainable chemistry was in its infancy and there wasn't the selection of alternative or green ingredients that there are today.
Today, Mambino Organics, has become a well known and respected brand for its high quality, unique and luxurious formulations and their unparalleled ability to make a positive change to the skin. The key to Mambino Organics effectiveness and great success is its active ingredients and the way they are combined and processed. Mambino Organics products are distributed through apothecaries, natural food stores, spas and naturopathic clinics in North America, Ukraine, Switzerland, Ireland, UK, Australia, New Zealand and the Far East. Her company is based in Los Angeles, California where she lives with her husband and partner, Andy. She has made TV appearances on shows like ABC's Extreme Makeover, and on Networks such as MTV UK and Telemundo to name a few.

Mambino Organics fully discloses all ingredients on each product. Our commitment to you, our customer, is to provide the purest and best performing natural personal care products possible, with the health and safety of you & your family in mind.
Mambino Organics products are:
We take great pride in providing our customers with honest and true products that really are natural! We've had every ingredient, our original formula, blending process, packaging and product label thoroughly researched and responsibly checked by these organizations bellow so you can be completely confident in our clean and green credentials. We have also won a National Export Achievement Award by the Los Angeles Chamber Of Commerce. Mambino Organics is proudly Certified USDA Handler (manufacturer).
An organic product is subject to very strict production procedures. With organic farming, the soil is prepped over a three-year period, and then once growing begins, the grounds are watch-guarded to ensure the environment is protected. Organic growing also bans the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers that can alter or harm the plants. As for complex organic products such as skincare, the extracts that go into the formulas must come from organic growing. That's why "green" or "natural" cosmetics are not necessarily "organic".
Our products for moms have a minimum of 70% certified organic ingredients. Our infant & baby line, except for the Mild Baby Wash & Shampoo is 100% USDA Certified Organic by A Bee Organic Company. If you need to see our Organic certificate, please email us.
Absolutely not. None of our products contain chemical preservatives. We only make use of natural preservatives, such as Rosemary extract (ROA) and natural vitamin E (kosher certified, GMO free and suitable for food and cosmetic use).
No. We have run all necessary tests to anticipate potential allergies. According to the results of different tests we certify that all the products are safe for cosmetic use in normal conditions.
Our essential oils come from a supplier who does AEOR (Applied Essential Oil Research) and provides certificates of analysis of EO quality. All our essential oils are organic or wild harvested and used in small therapeutic amounts, so their aroma is a citrus that's irresistibly fresh. All EOU oils are pesticide free according to GC/MS analytical results.
Organic raw materials are not refined or chemically modified, so no two batches are the same. So, the same product can have a different appearance, whether it's a variance in color or the levels of essential oils.
The Mambino Organics products are specially formulated to be safe during pregnancy and after birth but also suitable for children, men and women of all skin types and ages.
Since we use only the highest grade natural and organic ingredients, a little goes a long way. Every product has a shelf life of 16-18 months unopened and 12 months opened, because the packaging preserves the formulas. To help maintain the freshness we recommend the following: Products should not be exposed to direct sunlight or heat. They should be kept cool (below 85 degrees) but not extreme cold.
All of our raw ingredients come from highly reputable suppliers, all providing the highest quality ingredients on the market today. Each ingredient is screened, analyzed and sampled to insure purity and quality. Most of our ingredients are organic or wild harvested, cold pressed or expelled pressed to preserve nutrients and effectiveness. We never use refined oils that are solvent-extracted.
We hope that you enjoy using our products as much as we enjoy making them.
