Our Story

We are Indigena - healing beauty powered by the wonders of nature. 100% natural skincare created with wild grown botanicals hand harvested here, in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador. Our formulations balance scientific innovation with the natural power of this unique, resilient landscape. A blend of pure ingredients sustainably distilled from sea botanicals and indigenous northern boreal extracts. Working in harmony with the seasons, we locally grow these indigenous ingredients. We craft pure, safe and effective products, here on the island, to care for your skin and the environment.

The magic of our precious landscape inspired the birth of Indigena skincare. The island ofNewfoundland is a geographic anomaly. It exists below the 49th parallel and on the same latitude as Paris. The landscape endures a harsh, ever-changing North Atlantic climate. This has allowed rare adaptogenic plants to grow and adapt for survival over millions of years. Now, they flourish on this land creating some of the most powerful plant actives that we mindfully forage by hand. Using adaptogenic plants allows us to create resilient skincare. We capture nature’s essence to offer skin the same strength, balance and protection that these plants have developed for themselves over millennia.

Every Indigena product is packed full of these potent botanicals. They are rich inantioxidants and deliver plentiful nutrients to the skin. We blend waterless formulations thatreplace the typical “aqua” with skin soothing and nourishing botanical waters. Our productswork in harmony to fight free radical damage and are scientifically proven to deliver glowing,clearer and healthier skin for all.

At Indigena, we believe in creating happiness for the skin you live in through healing beauty inside and out. We are passionate about creating products that truly make a difference to people's lives. This is why we choose to embrace botanical adaptogenic skincare so that nature’s strength can restore your skin’s balance.

All Indigena products are made in Newfoundland, CA. 100% natural, vegan and Cruelty Free certified by PETA.

A NOTE FROM LISA WALSH, FOUNDER


In 2011 I founded Indigena to create exceptional, affordable skincare from botanical ingredients native to Newfoundland. I was, and still am, continuously inspired by this unique landscape - one of the world’s most remote and clean eco systems. I love the world of beauty and wanted to capture nature’s healing elements to create a restorative journey to skin wellness. At Indigena we aim to create happiness for the skin you live in. 

Whilst my daily work often entails meeting with Indigena’s teams from production to marketing, I always make time to explore and forage the land and sea of Newfoundland. After all, it is these native botanicals that are the heart of Indigena’s adaptogenic formulations. 

Being happiest by the ocean, our production facility and lab are located on the Newfoundland coast where the crashing waves call and inspire me everyday. Being passionate about our planet, Indigena is built on a commitment to using the most potent and pure natural ingredients in the most sustainable way possible.
