OOliva’s vision of a fully sustainable line from product to packaging rests on four pillars.
- clean ingredients for people and planet
- ethical farming and labor
- transparent consumer information
- waste reduction in production and packaging
At OOliva the research never stops.
You shouldn’t need a PhD in chemistry to choose safe cosmetics. While it may be easy to maneuver away from long lists of unrecognizable ingredient names, the trouble now is many harmful ingredients masquerade as something that grew from the earth. Or worse, there are clean, absolutely natural ingredients in some products that have no business near your skin. There are absolutely zero standards set for terms like, “natural” or “plant-based”. Ingredients that are naturally derived can be laden with petroleum solvents (i.e. essential oils), are destroying the rainforest (i.e. palm oil) or are actually a synthetic version of a natural ingredient (i.e. baking soda)! Sadly, these examples are just the tip of the iceberg.
This is where we focus our work and research.
Our products are made with simple, whole ingredients that are free of harsh and unnecessary additives. We never use synthetics or preservatives and produce a luxe, concentrated line of products including soap, deodorant and hair care. Every recipe is painstakingly formulated and created in small batches with as many organic, fair trade and non-GMO ingredients as possible.
