Oatsiva Enterprises was founded by pharmacist Michelle Cassumbhoy in 2017.
Over a career spanning almost twenty five years she has acquired clinical knowledge from major Australian public and private hospitals in addition to extensive retail experience.
The flagship product Oatsiva Concentrated Oatmeal Moisturizer was formulated based on this combined experience.
The inspiration for this product was to provide a high quality, pharmacist formulated, intense moisturizer for a wide range of consumers at a reasonable cost.
