Our Story
At Dr. Ora, we’re all about keeping it real and keeping it fun! Created from an adventurous soul and finessed with a passion for beauty, Singapore-born Dr. Ora speaks to the free-spirited, the enthusiastic, the unapologetic. The ethos of healthy skin should be simple — for you to live life to its fullest, and for the brand to stand by you every step of the way. Think of it this way: there’s nothing quite like having someone have your back, and Dr. Ora pledges to be that best friend that nurtures, supports, and understands your every skin need.

Founded in 2018, Dr. Ora has pledged itself to vegan and organic beauty supplements that harness the power of botanicals, fruits, and actives for high-efficacy results. Every single step of formulation is sincere and meticulous, driven by the strong belief that healthy skin starts from within. And in the name of being a true confidante, Dr. Ora entrusts you with full ingredients transparency. No frills, no fluff, no fillers. Now, that’s what we call a 100% commitment.

With Love,
Dr. Ora Team
