Five Questions For…is a new series that will provide a snapshot of fascinating and innovative people. Some of our subjects will be company founders who are doing amazing things within the beauty industry and beyond, others will be tastemakers whose style we admire — and all of them will be interesting. First up? The founder of Pangea Organics, Joshua Onysko, who started his organic body care line eight years ago after a life-changing, seven-year journey through Asia. He’s also responsible for creating one of our favorite lip balms ever! Intrigued? Check out Joshua’s blog for his monthly insights.
Joshua Onysko, Pangea Organics Founder
1. What’s your must-have grooming product?
Hands down, our Balancing Oil. I never leave home with out it. It is packed with anti-aging and skin cell regenerating ingredients — serious instant and long term results. I also mix a few drops with shower gel to shave, and a drop in my hair…Simply the best!
2. Biggest splurge (beauty or otherwise)?
My motorcycle. I love talking multi-day motorcycle journeys…nothing clears the mind more!
3. Favorite ritual?
Soaking in my wood hot tub by the creek, with a mud mask on, sipping some Guayaki Yerba Mate and honey. Reading the New York Times, then heading to meet friends for brunch.
4. What was your first job?
Delivering newspapers for the Providence Journal, I think I was seven years old.
5. If you weren’t running Pangea Organics, what would you be doing?
Traveling the world and empowering the poor with the tools they need to reach higher grounds…Everybody needs a little inspiration.
