A desire to provide children with chemical free hair and skin treatments led cosmetologist Marie Lee-Driver to develop her own line of natural products.

Her Research

Lee-Driver, a country girl from Virginia, modeled her product on one she used in her children’s salon located in Philadelphia, PA. “I started thinking, ‘If I can bake a cheesecake or a pound cake, I can make a hair product,’” she said.

She researched which natural ingredients worked best and met with dermatologists. Then she launched Oria’s O’shay Nature Butter, a natural body butter comprised of oils and Shea butter, which can be used from head to toe. 

Success! Oria's O'shay Nature Butter is now sold in Whole Food stores across the USA
