OCEAN. SUN. EARTH. ATMOSPHERE.
“Since the beginning, my mother and OSEA’s integrity have never faltered. Our skincare line as you see it today adheres entirely to my mother’s initial vision. We still do not consider ourselves in the business of being a “big business”. Instead, we continue to produce products that support skin’s natural health and beauty and are designed with ingredient-conscious skincare consumers in mind….The sea remains our primary source of ingredients and inspiration.”
We believe that safe cosmetics are your right and our earth’s rightful due.
Our company philosophy is built into the name – OSEA stands for Ocean, Sun, Earth, and Atmosphere. We respect the four elements of our planet and work with nature to heal the human body. We don’t do anything that pollutes or harms our planet because that is where we find our most effective ingredients.
OSEA was never intended to become a household name. We started as a way of filling a palpable void in the cosmetics industry in which there were no natural spa products available. What we eventually realized is that your skin deserves to receive the same treatments at home that you get in the best spas in the world. So we expanded our range to give you OSEA products for your everyday skincare routine to soothe, nourish and repair your skin responsibly.
We were the first company to sign the Compact for Global Production of Safe Health and Beauty Products in 2002. Since then, over 1000 companies have joined OSEA in pledging to phase out the use of toxic chemicals in all beauty products.
Today, we are committed to providing customers with extensively researched products designed for their purity, quality, and effectiveness. We develop our products with only the purest ingredients proven and technically advanced formulations to restore skin to its highest level of health and appearance. Using product formulations that took our founder Jenefer Palmer over a decade to refine, we bring together the abundant vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids derived from earth and sea that your skin needs. We also take care to harvest our natural ingredients in an eco-responsible manner to ensure the sustainability of the incredible ecosystems in which they are found.
“I want to leave this planet a cleaner place than when I arrived. (Like being a good house guest) I also want women to be able to use the safest cosmetics possible. Remember 70% of what you put on your body can be absorbed into your bloodstream. I want to raise the consciousness of women so they use safe cosmetics, it's not just about beauty - it's about their health.”
- OSEA Founder Jenefer Palmer
