Our Story – The Secret Valley In The Himalayas

“Idemo”-beauty of nature, is inspired by the extreme climate of the Himalayas, the glory of the sun, freshness of the air and the unblemished glacier water in this innocent valley with its abundance of Himalayan Apricot

The Idemo story begins with our founders, the Oon sisters from Penang, Malaysia, visit to Ladakh located in the foothills of the Himalayas, back in 2013. Like a soft whisper to the soul, Ladakh invites your spirit into a captivating world of nature.

On one of these visits, the Oon sisters noticed the natives were endowed with glowing, radiant skin regardless of their age, capturing the hearts of the Oon sisters amidst the background of peaceful trickle of melting glaciers merging into the Indus River passing through the valley.

The secret to the natives youthfulness complexion? Himalayan Apricots!

Our Responsibilities – How Do We Serve

We are made wise not by the recollection of the past, but by the responsibility for our future   ~George Bernard Shaw~

Idemo deals directly with the native farmers of Ladakh to ensure that they reap a fair return on their harvest by paying fair prices and donate and additional percentage of our revenue to education programs that improve the lives of children in the areas that need them the most.

Our Cause – Why We Do It

W.B. Yeats, once said that, “education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire”

Idemo was founded on the belief to support the education of children that need it. We feel the need to break down the barriers to education by helping poor and vulnerable children access early childhood and primary school services.

Only through an education can many children see their route out of poverty, it gives them a chance to gain the knowledge and skills needed to improve their lives. When children miss out on school and sacrifice their education, they become trapped in a cycle of poverty.

The 2015 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals have committed to achieving inclusive and quality education for all to promote lifelong learning by 2030. This goal will be achieved by ensuring free and equitable access to quality early childhood education, and primary and secondary schooling for all.

How Idemo Came To Be – Nature’s Secret 

Those who find beauty in all of nature will find themselves at one with the secrets of life itself

The apricots are individually picked by hand and the oil is then extracted from the kernel without changing any of its chemical properties, thus preserving the natural abundance of nutrients provided by Mother Nature.

Idemo carefully preserves this secret into its products to be shared with the rest of the world while at the same time to build the economy of the natives in this unpolluted valley.

We believe in connecting people to return to Nature by promoting a natural healthy lifestyle and provide the highest quality skin care.
