Safe cosmetics are a consumer's right and our earth’s rightful due.
Natural, Non-toxic Beauty
OSEA embodies the core elements of wellness: Ocean. Sun. Earth. Atmosphere. My mother, Jenefer Palmer, founded OSEA 20 years ago with the intention of creating a natural skincare line free of toxic, synthetic ingredients. OSEA delivers proven results without causing harm to our health or the health of our environment. Jenefer’s innovative formulations of certified organic, bioavailable seaweed, infused with pure steam-distilled and cold pressed essential oils create powerful natural anti-aging solutions and reduce the appearance of blemishes–eliminating the need for synthetic ingredients entirely. OSEA is free of synthetic chemicals such as parabens, petrochemicals, and sulfates.Learn more about what’s NOT in our products
In 2002, OSEA was the first company to sign “Compact for Safe Cosmetics”, an initiative started by the Environmental Working Group that holds companies accountable for ensuring that their products are “free of chemicals that are known or strongly suspected of causing cancer, mutation or birth defects.” Since then, over 1,000 companies have joined OSEA in pledging to phase out the use of toxic chemicals in all beauty products!
Plant-based, Vegan Ingredients
Jenefer is proud to have pioneered the plant-based vegan conscious skincare movement since 1996. OSEA products are not only natural, effective and cruelty-free, but also free from animal-derived ingredients such as lanolin, beeswax, carmine and more. We believe that animal rights matter! Vegan skincare is also the most eco-friendly! To produce one pound of animal protein vs. one pound of plant protein, it takes about 12 times as much land, 13 times as much fossil fuel, and 15 times as much water. All of our plant-derived ingredients are sustainably grown and our bioavailable seaweed is eco-responsibly and hand-harvested from the pristine waters of the Sea of Patagonia.Learn more about our Seaweed
Most of our products are packaged in recyclable glass bottles. Glass is endlessly recyclable and impermeable, ensuring the purity of our products. Jenefer has mandated that OSEA will NEVER package in soft plastic as it leaches harmful Phthalates, endocrine disruptors which may also be carcinogenic.
"My mother and OSEA’s unwavering 20 year commitment to natural, organic, vegan, gluten-free and non-GMO ingredients, and green packaging solutions is just part of our family’s ongoing promise to protect your health, deliver beautiful results and leave the smallest carbon footprint possible."
-Melissa Palmer, OSEA CEO
"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."
-Jenefer Palmer, OSEA Founder
