OSEA began in Jenefer’s kitchen sink after a decade working as Spa Director at the historic Murrieta Hot Springs. Paired with her training in various healing modalities including Polarity Therapy, Acupressure, Shiatsu and Biodynamic Cranialsacral Therapy, Jenefer was a thought leader in the burgeoning wellness space. Her desire to create active, organic and clean skincare was revolutionary and what began as a personal passion soon evolved into a fully fledged beauty brand, manifesting the seed of her idea into reality.
Melissa inherited her mother’s belief that the ocean is the source of all life. Like her grandmother, she started a morning swim club in the ocean (though in the Pacific and not as frigid as the Atlantic in winter). At the start of her career, Melissa created e-commerce strategies for a host of wellness brands, building a reputation as master community builder and digital marketer. Ultimately, Melissa returned to where it all began—to Southern California to take the reins as the CEO of OSEA, transforming a small family business into the leader for clean, sustainable skincare.
