About Abra Therapeutics
For the past 40 years Warren Raysor, President and Herbal Formulator at Abra Therapeutics, has dedicated himself and his company to herbal research, formulation, and education. His interest in plants began early in life. At 14 Warren's professional career began as a counselor and guide for wild useful and edible plants. In 1970 he began cultivating culinary and medicinal plants in his own garden and giving "plant side" lectures on organic gardening to anyone who passed through his garden gate. Back then, the whole idea of using Nature's plants to nurture, nourish and heal was just beginning to be recognized as a healthy lifestyle by the "New" generation. Although there were Health Food Stores, there were no 'Natural Food Stores' yet, and the Organic movement was known to only a few progressive vegetarians. As part of a small group of alternative thinkers Warren began formulating herbal products for the Natural Food Stores that were beginning to spring up across America. He is happy and proud to have been a part of many "beginnings" over the years in the Natural Products Industry.
In 1995, when Warren and his wife, Arie, decided to join their dreams and resources, the Abra Therapeutic product line was born. They knew that they had all the necessary herbal resources to make the finest herbal personal care products in the world. They knew they had a vast amount of experience to share, and they believed a successful life meant living their visions and values.
Today the Abra Therapeutic line has many loyal customers. Their plant resources reach far beyond Warren's garden gate, and their path has led them to some of the most exciting botanical sanctuaries in the world. They have taken an active stand against using any non-renewable tree harvests such as sandalwood and rosewood and support several organizations dedicated to wild plant preservation.
Warren and Arie are blessed to live their dreams and their values, and to bring the wondrous gifts of Nature to your door.
What They Stand For:
- Speak The Truth
Anyone can say they're natural. but great skin care requires more than a drop of herbs in the formula just to make a claim on the label. Fooling the customer is not their way. Abra Skin Care contains therapeutic levels of certified organic herbals and pure unadulterated essential oils that are in the products for a therapeutic reason, not just for show.
- Raise The Standard
Abra Skin Care is formulated by a professional herbalist. Just like high quality herbal supplements, they combine standardized and whole herb extracts to deliver the entire range of nutrients to the skin. Unlike most other skin care companies they start with certified organic whole herbs, produce their own extracts, and create fabulous products around them. Their herbals are the active ingredients and not just buzz words for the label.
- Share Their Knowledge
Knowledge comes from experience. In a world with so much emphasis on glitz and marketing, it's often difficult to determine herbal fact from herbal fiction. As herbalists and skincare formulators they want to share their 30 plus years of experience so that people could learn about skin nutrition and the natural healing power of plants.
- Respect Our Earth
Using organic herbs is only part of their ecological commitment. As part of their "It's Our Nature" program, all their ingredients are obtained from ethically harvested and renewable resources only. The earth is our home. There is only one. It is our responsibility.
- Make A Difference
As many as one in eight species of plants is at risk for extinction. Abra's "It's Our Nature" program actively contributes and supports non-profit organizations dedicated to preserving and cultivating endangered medicinal plants.
- Nurture Beauty
They formulate products to enhance physical beauty by nurturing healthy cells. They see true beauty as health, vitality, attitude and personal style, and encourage people to recognize their beauty in laughter, kindness and the joys of friendship. Looking good helps achieve those goals.
- Earn Your Trust
Advertising doesn't buy loyalty. Recommendations from people who use their products are responsible for their success. They choose to invest more in research and ingredients than in advertising. It keeps the prices down and the quality up. Many products that are two and three times as expensive have minimal levels of the featured ingredient. this is due to the high cost of advertising and marketing. Their products earn your loyalty by delivering exceptional results. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with your friends. This is their way.
Pledge of Purity
Creating Therapeutic Skin Care is more than blending the most popular herbs and vitamins. It is a dedication to growing, harvesting, and understanding the healing properties of plants. It is knowing that a plant is only as good as the soil in which it is grown. It is a commitment to use only the highest quality actively therapeutic herbals, vitamins, minerals and essential oils. It is their Personal Pledge of Purity.

I really, really like this scrub. It's mild enough to use almost everyday, but with enough texture to actually exfoliate. Great for those of us with dry, combination, and/or sensitive skin and poor cell turnover. The peppermint and ylang-ylang help constrict pores and feels great. Not too overpowering. One jar lasts me about 3 months of almost daily use. This line of products seems very obscure and Lucky is the only place I've found them lately. The only issue I have is with the container. I see no reason why this product can't be in a tube. Jars are neither hygienic nor waterproof for shower use. Also a pain when traveling.
