The Road Less Taken.

At the core of the Inessa brand is the value of family. The desire to live a healthy and prosperous life for yourself and the ones you love. Ray and Mai, the founders of Inessa, are developing pure products that support successful ageing.

Ray originally from Holland, has had 40 years of adventure, experiencing life off-the-beaten-track. Ray has lived with the Bedouins in Syria, spent time with the Pygmies in the Congo and travelled through the Amazon delta in the war area between Ecuador and Peru. Ray’s stories of survival through extreme wild conditions are documentary worthy! Ray’s journeys taught him the impressive power of nature, that the most pure and life sustaining ingredients are sourced from the earth.

 Inessa prides itself on the purity and quality of the ingredients used in all of the products. Inessa endeavours to source each premium ingredient where possible from the best Australian environments. Tasmania especially, with its natural beauty, has been discovered to be a rich and fertile land that produces high quality life sustaining ingredients for their superfoods.

 The Inessa way of life is one of simply providing yourself with the building blocks and nutrition that your body needs. With the right ingredients, in the right combination, in the right doses for specific health. We hope that you will enjoy the benefits of these products as much as Ray and Mai do. Make them part of your everyday routine, and that you will enjoy a full, healthy and rich life!!!


Mai, Ray’s wife, was born in Japan and in her search to discover more about the world and herself; she left her hometown of Nagoya to travel to Okinawa Island and later Nepal. She experienced a pure, natural and healthy lifestyle and firmly believes this is the best way to live. It was a conviction that would reflect on the choices she made throughout her life. When Ray and Mai met in Australia, there was an instant attraction and they decided to call Australia home. This is where they started their family and pursued their dreams.

In their quest to share a Japanese vegetable-based pasta and rice alternative, they started Slendier in their spare bedroom and 6 years later, boasted distribution across 20 countries worldwide. Now they have again chosen a road less taken.

They realized for a long time that anyone’s health, beauty, well-being and the integrity of your frame is all determined through your nutritional input. How your body feels and looks will impact your energy, confidence and quality of life. Mai and Ray thought there must be better ways to look after yourself in a sustainable and effective manner. To age not only gracefully but successfully. With success they mean to feel and look beautiful, energetic and rejuvenated and to have a frame that will work not only as good as it gets but also for as long as possible. That inspired them to create premium beauty, joint and total body care medicines as well as natural superfoods that are wholesome and as pure as can be – Inessa was created. Inessa means PURE in ancient Greek and it is here to help people live fuller, healthier lives, and look after themselves…..from Within.
