ORESTA's Birthday Giveaway

June 24, 2016

In 2001, I founded Ottawa’s first organic spa and healthy beauty boutique. I believed that no woman should ever compromise her health for beauty. At ORESTA, we do your homework for you so you can shop with confidence knowing that you are purchasing the best healthy beauty brands available on the market. We offer a unique selection of pure, results-oriented, organic, vegan, gluten and cruelty-free skin care, hair care, body care and cosmetics. We also offer custom blended organic, vegan and gluten-free spa treatments.

In 2008, Scott Lake, one of the original Shopify founders introduced me to Shopify. He believed that online shopping was the way of the future and that creating a clean, simple and easy to use e-commerce platform was a perfect compliment to our existing brick + mortar shop. We are honoured to be the 39th of now over 200,000 Shopify merchants. We have experienced significant growth and ORESTA now has 3 brick and mortar shops in Ottawa as well as a vibrant online shop. We are proud that oresta.ca was the first green beauty online store to offer safe and healthy beauty choices for women across Canada from large cities to small, rural communities.
