The journey to create a successful company can be as arduous as scaling a Tibetan mountainside, but well worth the view from the top. Bruce McMullin founded Sibu in 2003 after series of events led him to Calcutta, India where he crossed paths with an ayurvedic specialist in Chinese plants and herbs. In passing, this expert mentioned a powerful holy fruit, the Sea Buckthorn berry.
From there McMullin's quest took him to new heights, figuratively and literally, as he journeyed to some of the most remote locations of the Himalayas to find the superior source of Sea Buckthorn that is the foundation for all Sibu products.
In addition to being a successful entrepreneur, Bruce has a thirteen-year history of philanthropic efforts worldwide serving as executive chairman of Choice Humanitarian.
Beautiful People. Beautiful Earth.
Sibu is proud to offer an exclusive line of health & beauty products that will improve the way you look and the way you feel. But they are also sensitive to the constant stress on our environment due to chemicals, overflowing landfills, and irresponsible management of our forests and other valued resources.
For these reasons, Sibu Beauty is also proud to announce a range of sustainability initiatives which respect the earth and the resources it provides. From their easily recycled plastic and their partnership with the Forest Stewardship Council, to their fair trade harvesting practices in Tibet and philanthropic outreach, Sibu Beauty want to make a difference for your health and for the planet.
Sustainability & Fair Trade
In Sibu's endeavor to keep you looking beautiful, they also strive to protect and respect the earth's fragile resources. So they've implemented processes to use precious natural resources responsibly and with minimal impact on our beloved planet. Sea buckthorn berries are a naturally sustainable resource growing wild at the source in Tibet.
Sibu's trade practices promote equal and sustainable relationships between their company and the villagers who harvest and process their berries. This includes fair wages, processes that are environmentally sustainable, and healthy, safe working conditions.
Against a backdrop of pristine Himalayan mountain peaks, Tibetan villagers cut a trail through the thick morning fog past ancient monasteries, journeying to the wild groves of sea buckthorn. Just as sea buckthorn berries are revered for their life-giving health properties, they are also venerated as a life sustaining financial resource. Often, entire families work in some capacity in the chain of harvesting and processing. The brief harvest season can provide enough money so that villagers can sustain themselves during the harsh winter months in the Himalayas when resources are scarce. There is an air of celebration to the harvest and processing season. Perhaps it's because workers are paid a fair wage the same day as the harvest and processing. To date, these dedicated, hard-working villagers have received consistent salary increases each year. From the harvest to the shelf, Sibu strives to run a responsible business with reverence for both people and the planet.
