The Man Behind Gramps: He’s Not As Old As You Think
Words you hear everywhere in 2017: Organic. Natural.
Products boasting these terms have been all the rage this year, and the train doesn’t seem to be stopping soon. Then again, who wouldn’t want to use them in their everyday life? Not only is it safe to use, but it’s great for the environment. #SaveMotherEarth.
Harsh preservatives and chemicals were used by brands to help their products last longer, and consequently to cut back cost. However, this proved to be harmful to health after prolonged use (yikes!).
Luckily, we have Gramps. Nor Rezan Mohamad Noor, or affectionately known as Tok Ayah or Gramps, is the brains behind the 100% natural, water-based and enviromentally-friendly brand established in 2006.
Their first product was the Mosquito Repellent Aromatherapy inspired by his protective instinct for his grandson, who had developed a severe allergic reaction to mosquito bites, which fuelled his desire to create something with 100% natural ingredients.
Tok Ayah has retired from the Penang Municipal Council after 33 years of service but after retirement he is now still working full-time with Gramp’s to develop a line of all-natural products for solutions to everyday household problems. Together with his children where his only son, Mohamad Reza Fikry Bin Nor Rezan is driving the Gramp’s empire. Gramps is a close-knit family business and they’re dang proud of it.
Here are some of the products that Gramps has to offer:
