About Us

Our Story:

Niora is a company born from care,  passion and commitment, as it was created by a man as a gift for a woman. In 1992, chemist George Tindall begn creating natural anti-aging skin care products. Two years later, George met Cindy, a beautiful woman who suffered from adult acne. She was often embarrassed to show her face in public. George saw Cindy’s frustration with the acne products she used. They were not that effective and were irritating and harsh. Typically they left her skin dry and did little to control oiliness. They certainly didn’t enhance the beauty of her skin. George wanted to create a new anti-acne product for her, one that would not only clear adult acne but also keep her skin moisturized, healthy and beautiful. After extensive research, he developed a product made of natural and organic ingredients. Instead of trying to sterilize the skin and strip it dry of oils, Tindall focused on exfoliating and cleansing pores while balancing oil and moisture levels. The approach worked, and the revolutionary Alpha Clear was born. The results were immediate. Cindy became more confident, happier and did not need to hide anymore. The best part was that she and George married. Cindy hasn’t had acne since, and even as she has gotten older, her skin has remained soft and glowing.
