how we started
The story of our essential outdoor hygiene and skincare products range
A true lover of nature and an adventure seeker. Clivina got tired of having to lug around products that were over 90% water, when water was readily available in most places she travelled to, be it from streams, rain or even piped water. They were bulky, over the luggage limit, unpractical in the shower and to top it off mostly not very good for nature or your skin.
Combining her skills as a qualified Natural skincare formulator and her love of nature she knew there was a solution to these issues. It has taken her just over a year of research and formulating with Chemists to finally reach our end products. They not only address the above pain points but they are also good for nature and you. These are either concentrated (Hair & Body wash) or dual purpose (Sunscreen & Insect repellent) cutting down on the number of products that you need to travel with. All ingredients used will not harm nature in any way.
As Clivina likes to say, “from Nature, for Nature”.

REDUCE YOUR FOOTPRINT
Over the last few years, the beauty industry has been hard at work convincing people that they need a 10-step skincare routine and that skincare is synonymous with self-care. Your skin doesn’t need all that though. Less is more! Did you know you actually only need three products for your skin to thrive? A cleanser, a moisturiser, and a sunscreen. That’s it. That’s all you really need for happy, healthy skin.
The Intrepid Explorer’s three-pack delivers all three, with the bonus of natural insect repellent for outdoor enthusiasts. Think of it as skin minimalism. And it’s not just good for your skin – it’s good for the planet too. People often forget about the ‘reduce’ part of “Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.” What are you doing to reduce the waste you create in the world?
When it comes to reducing consumption, simplifying your skincare routine is a great place to start. According to the Plastic Pollution Coalition, the personal care and beauty industry produces more than 120 billion units of packaging every year globally – most of which are not truly recyclable. Investing in a simplified skincare routine means less waste going to landfills, and with recyclable packaging like ours, your footprint in the world is dramatically reduced.
Convenient, Functional and Essential Outdoor Hygiene and Skincare
The Intrepid Explorer products are made by people that care, for people who care. We’re looking out for the planet, and inviting you to join us on our journey. We’re passionate about nature and using what nature has given us to build a better world.
Whenever we spend time in nature, we’re reminded that the answer is out there. We need to challenge the status quo of how things ‘are’ and focus on how things ‘should be’. Mass-produced products full of harmful chemicals hurt people and hurt the planet.
We believe that natural, eco-friendly products with ethically sourced ingredients are the way forward. While a natural, organic product may come with a higher price tag, you pay less in the long run. With continuous exposure to the ‘forever chemicals’ or PFAS in most products, we pay the price with our health and wellness. It’s time we get back to what nature has given us.
Eco-friendly products made with the earth in mind
Nothing ruins an outdoor adventure like a sunburn, or not being able to sleep with all the insects ‘bugging’ you at night. Streamline your skincare for all your outdoor adventures with sun protection during the day, insect protection day and night, and a powdered hair and body wash that protects you 24/7.
Get back to basics with The Intrepid Explorer’s outdoor hygiene and skincare range. We know that nature has given us everything we need. And we’re giving it back to you in three handy essentials you’ll never want to leave home without.
