Utama Spice is a traditional skincare company based in Ubud, Bali. We focus on applying ancient Balinese herbal knowledge to create products that not only enhance your skin’s natural beauty but also provokes your mind to consider the raw power and beauty of nature. We do this by using only 100% pure natural ingredients. We got our start in 1989 when Dayu Suci and Melanie Templer saw a need to retain Bali’s amazing herbal knowledge and traditions. This knowledge was being quickly lost with the advent of modern products containing dangerous chemicals. As the demand for traditional remedies declined, the herbs and spices used in these remedies were too quickly being lost further perpetuating the cycle.
Dayu, with her extensive knowledge of traditional Balinese remedies, and Melanie, with her never ending quest to discover the wonders of the natural world, quickly rediscovered the amazing benefits of essential oils and other natural ingredients. They started making their remedies by hand for their loved ones. We have continued their passion today in the hope of sharing their discoveries with you and your loved ones.
