It’s no secret that we are obsessed with the Ocean. The Ocean is not only the source of our ingredients, it is also the source of our inspiration. From my grandmother starting one of the first polar bear clubs in the 1920s to my daughter’s Venice Morning Swim Club and my my son’s quest for the next best wave, to my husband’s daily beach rides and my youngest daughter’s yoga practice on the sand to my own lifelong study: the Ocean has given us so much. That is why my family and I are so excited this year to celebrate World Ocean’s Day by giving back.

Summer is almost here. And, if you're like me and have combination/blemish-prone skin that doesn't tolerate heavy creams, it can quickly become a cruel summer for your pores! When I apply sunscreen I feel like my face instantly becomes a magnet for dirt, pollen, sand, dust, grit and grime. The last thing I want to do is apply a moisturizer.
But there is no getting around the fact that moisturizing is an essential part of long-term skincare. Not only do moisturizers have anti-aging benefits, they actively protect your skin from free-radical and environmental damage whie replenishing essential nutirents and boosting elasticity. Lightweight moisturizers loaded with healing botanicals like OSEA's Blemish Balm also help balance your oil production and decrease oily sheen. After a year of using not one-but two (!!)- OSEA moisturizers religiously I can safely say two things:
1. My skin has never looked or felt better
2. I will never stop using them!
Here's the rundown on OSEA's best-selling lightweight moisturizers which are the perfect addition to your summer skincare regiment.

Spotlight on DPHP: A Key Ingredient That Sets OSEA Apart!
The Short Story:
What is DPHP? You may have seen it on your skincare labels and wondered what it is and if its natural. DPHP or Dipalmitoyl Hydroxyproline is a plant-based amino-acid that feeds the collagen fibers in your skin, re-sculpts and tones, corrects uneven pigmentation, and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Basically, it is your skin’s new best friend!
The Science: Continue reading

OSEA's Recipe for Inflight Skincare
We like to call our Mom "The OG Hippie". Long before Boho was a thing, she was living it: ravelling around the world, living in a plastic pyramid in Hawaii (for a year!), researching natural health, meditating, making her own tofu, granola and almond milk.
I think it would be safe to say that my Mom has always been on her own path. And the path that took her from a hippie to beauty entrepreneur is certainly no exception.
The short story is that a young hippie joins a healing center commune and starts running their spa. She looks into skincare products to compliment their holistic treatments and realizes women are being poisoned with toxic ingredients. So she decides to come up with an alternative and creates her first formulations of marine-based products. She has kids and becomes best mother ever and spends the next 15 years perfecting Continue reading
