Beauty. Power. Love.
Lorde is different.
Rachel Williams, a sought after veteran makeup artist and esthetician in the beauty industry realized a great need missing throughout her years working on models, celebrities, the every day woman and more throughout the cosmetic industry.
There was a deep need to have honesty, transparency and a higher accountability of ingredients and best practices with cosmetic companies. There was a need for those seeking beauty products to be educated deeper, and equiped more lovingly.
Hiking with her husband and children in the Smoky Mountains in 2014, One phrase came to mind that inspired Rachel to create and open Lorde.
Beauty. Power. Love.
Beauty, Power and Love is a commitment to ourselves, eachother, and our environment. A deeper understanding of beauty, power and love happens through educating, experiencing and propelling it forward to others and our environment. Many times it starts with beauty. When we feel beautiful we do more powerful things, we love deeper, we physically display these attributes and share it with others powerfully.
Then came the philosophy which Lorde is built it's foundation on.
From source to experience, everything Lorde offeres is to the utmost and highest quality; with greater accountability to the clients, communities, and to our environment.
As an exclusive clean indie beauty driven Spa and Cosmetics Boutique, Lorde offers makeup application, facial waxing, and mind blowing prestigious facials featuring the world renowned Omorovicza Spa and Skincare products.

Although much is understood about the beneficial effects of thermal waters on bathers, harnessing the minerals in these waters into a skincare range presents a significant challenge. To stimulate the skin to heal and repair itself, minerals need to be absorbed by the deeper layers of the skin - but this first requires transforming them into a state that the body readily recognizes and absorbs.
Working with a Hungarian Nobel prize-winning laboratory, Omorovicza Cosmetics developed Hydro Mineral Transference™, a delivery system, to enable the absorption of minerals from the healing waters of Budapest by the epidermis for firmer, suppler and younger-looking skin. Based on the ancient science of bio-fermentation, Hydro Mineral Transference™ captures minerals in their original form, reconfigures their molecular structure into a state that the body recognizes, then delivers them to the deepest levels of the skin where they will have the greatest effect.The results are nothing short of spectacular.
Omorovicza products are powered by a potent blend of Hungary’s mineral-rich healing waters and our patented Hydro Mineral Transference™ delivery system. This is combined with the finest vitamins, essential oils and other natural ingredients from across the globe, from the bed of Lake Heviz to the peak of the Andes mountains. Products are fragranced with natural scents crafted in Grasse, the heart of the perfume industry.
Omorovicza uses high- performance, naturally derived alternatives to commonly used synthetics, ensuring the Omorovicza experience is one of total luxury and maximum efficacy. All products exclude the following ingredients and are never tested on animals:
SODIUM LAURETH SULFATES

At first touch, skin is soothed, moisturized and visibly rejuvenated. Over time, collagen and elastin production is boosted and vital moisture is locked in. Surface damage is repaired and skin is strengthened.

For many centuries, African people have used pure, indigenous botanicals as traditional healing remedies for natural health, beauty and wellbeing. Our research has led us to some remote places in Africa where we have met leading botanists and native plant specialists who share their knowledge and passion with us. From our discoveries we have carefully selected many botanical treasures with calming and anti-inflammatory skin care benefits and profound abilities to rejuvenate, replenish and soothe unbalanced, stressed and irritated skin.
Using only sustainably sourced, naturally harvested botanical ingredients, African Botanics utilizes these powerful, time-tested plants and combines them with cutting-edge formulations for proven results that target specific skincare concerns. Our ingredients are known to minimize scars and acne, nourish dryness and smooth fine lines while restoring balance and equilibrium.
Almost all of the ingredients we use are certified organic and are always sourced from leading suppliers. No animal ingredients, color additives, synthetic fragrances, mineral oil or any other potentially harmful chemicals or fillers are used in African Botanics products. We are against animal testing and believe all life is precious.
