Pomifera was launched in 2019, based in Iowa. The name is derived from the key ingredient in most of its products – pomifera seed oil.
Pomifera, aka osage orange, hedge, or hedge apple, is a small tree that is a member of the mulberry family and a distant relative of the orange tree. The fruit isn’t usually eaten by humans, rarely foraged by animals, and grows plentifully without extreme water consumption – an appropriate ingredient to build a sustainable body and skin care brand. There are a couple of products from Pomifera’s line it would now be hard to live without, and knowing an inedible and bountiful fruit is responsible for their existence makes it even sweeter.
