Less is more fun.

We believe in making the best possible products using only the essentials, delivering functional and versatile beauty without fillers.

Who We Are

As a makeup artist and stylist with over 25 years of experience in the international film and commercial industry, Paola LaMorticella knows skin care. So, when she realized that prescriptions and over-the-counter creams irritated her infant son’s skin, she decided to do something about it.

Paola created her own balm to soothe her son’s skin naturally, using a unique combination of simple, nourishing elements and eliminating all non-essential ingredients. The resulting formula healed her son’s skin and with that, Balm No.1 and Olio E Osso were born. Today, Olio has grown into an entire line of balms and skincare products that support skin naturally to keep it clean, strong and beautiful, as it should be.

Necessity Is the Mother of Invention

Our Olio E Osso team includes a diverse set of smart, capable and dedicated women (and a couple men)! We make our products by hand in small batches in Portland, Oregon. We are honored to support local communities by designing, sourcing, and producing all of our collection in the USA.
