robin brown | Co-founder
Co-founder and CEO Robin Brown has been personally involved in the ideation and formulation of every Erbaviva product since the debut of the baby collection in 1996.
Born and raised in the UK, Robin enjoyed a successful career as a cinematographer in Los Angeles’ film industry and became fully immersed in California’s organic lifestyle. His passion for health and wellness evolved into a commitment to create something meaningful after becoming a father. Inspired by his children, he was moved to make truly healthy, organic personal care products that families like his own could trust.
Robin’s dedication to nature has been a catalyst for Erbaviva’s many designations of social and ethical responsibility, including USDA Organic and B Corp Certification.
He resides in Los Angeles with his family and hopes to someday own a biodynamic farm in Ojai, California.
Organic skincare pioneers Robin Brown and Anna Cirronis created Erbaviva in Los Angeles’ artistic Topanga Canyon enclave in 1996. As early proponents of California’s organic food movement, Erbaviva was born from the desire to apply the same principles of sustainability, ethics and quality to the products used on their children’s delicate skin.
In the early days, Erbaviva products were crafted first for individual use and later for friends and family. Today, the brand offers personal care products for pregnancy, baby and a global community of like-minded beauty seekers. Erbaviva or “living herbs” in Italian, features pure, USDA Certified Organic ingredients that have been thoughtfully derived from nature. The expertly balanced formulas nourish the skin, using enriching botanicals, essential oils and living herbs, to yield exceptional results.
And while Erbaviva has grown, the founding values of transparency, authenticity and organic integrity endure. Erbaviva is still proudly made in Los Angeles— at its own clean, green solar powered manufacturing facility. It is among the few companies globally to achieve B Corp Certification, meeting rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency.
