Happy Earth Day! At Olio E Osso, we take sustainability and clean beauty seriously. It’s something we consider in every aspect of our business – from ingredients and sourcing to our practices and ethics. Here are 3 ways we at Olio E Osso work to protect the earth’s precious resources!

1. Ingredient Sourcing: We take great pride in sourcing clean, high quality, small-batch ingredients made without chemicals that can disrupt your health or pollute the earth. We are all about the purity of our products – because what goes on your skin ends up in your body. 

2. Sustainability Practices: We seek out ingredient partners who practice sustainability all the way from sourcing and manufacturing to the disposal of their materials. Each partner is closely vetted by our founder, Paola, to ensure they meet our sustainability and ethical labor standards. 

3. Reducing Carbon Emissions: To cut down on carbon emissions from shipping, we source the majority of our ingredients from the U.S. - and locally from Portland, Oregon, whenever possible.

4. Waterless Beauty: Did you know that by 2025, two-thirds of the world's population could be facing a water shortage? By creating waterless products, we are reducing our water footprint, eliminating the need for synthetic preservatives, and creating a product that is lighter, lasts longer, and has a higher concentration of active ingredients. It's a win for the planet and for you. 

How can you help?

Upcycle your body oils. Recycle your empty body oil containers with your glass recycling or save them to reuse! We like to refill our mini sets and use them for travel! 

Recycle those balms. Save your empties! Once you’ve collected three, send them back to us for recycling and you’ll receive a code for $10 off your next purchase!
