With a simple philosophy of, “Safe cosmetics are a consumer’s right and our earth’s rightful due”, OSEA brand vegan skincare line draws from the invigorating and healing properties of the ocean. Proudly proclaiming their line as both certified vegan and cruelty free, the company is also a fervent protector of the environment. In fact, OSEA was the first ever company to sign The Compact for Global Production of Safe health and Beauty Products in 2002. Their products are all completely free of synthetic fragrances, genetically modified ingredients, petrochemicals, parabens and sulfates. This unwavering environmental commitment by their founder, who is often involved in legislative efforts on behalf of environmentally friendly cosmetics, is what led the decision for all of OSEA’s products to be packaged in glass – an endlessly recyclable product.
One of the main components of OSEA’s line is USDA certified organic seaweed, which is hand harvested in Patagonia and sun-dried on special drying beds. The beach from which the seaweed is harvested is in a desolate region, and the water is so clean and untouched that it provides the perfect environment for sustainable harvesting. Seaweed is a concentrated source of important vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. It has the ability to both firm and soften skin, as well as improve blood and lymph circulation.
OSEA features lines for all skin types: normal, dry, sensitive, oily, combination, acne-prone and mature. They offer three highly effective masks to choose from as well: Black Algae Mask (for exfoliation), Red Algae Mask (for breakouts) and White Algae Mask (for sensitive or rosacea-prone skin). They also offer a body line to ensure that your skin stays nourished from head-to-toe.
And for jet-setters who are always on the go, all of their products are offered in travel sizes, as well as full travel sets, so that your skin routine goes uninterrupted during those extended trips away from home. Of particular interest is Sea Vitamin Boost which packs a powerful infusion of vitamins and hydration – perfect to use after your skin has suffered the dehydrating effects of airplane air.
