Osea Malibu Skincare

In the 1920s, Jenefer Palmer’s grandmother founded the Long Island Polar Bear Club and took dips in the ocean 300 days a year. Ever a believer in the healing powers of the ocean, Jenefer founded Osea in 1996, a sustainable seaweed skincare company whose formulations she’d spent a decade developing. Now her daughter, Melissa, works by her side as the company’s CEO. A simple, seaweed-focused, ingredient list and a proven track record helped make the brand a success. Osea’s early commitment to environmental ethics, sustainable packaging, and vegan and cruelty-free ingredients were unusual in the ‘90s. Today, Osea continues to achieve the highest sustainability standards and certifications. The company is Climate Neutral Certified and Ocean Positive Verified, meaning they offset more carbon than they create. The brand is also Leaping Bunny Certified and PETA Approved. Their Undaria Algae Body Oil is a cult classic (and loved by our own reporter Lily Olsen). We also recommend trying the Vagus Nerve Bath Oil and Ocean Eyes Age-Defying Serum, both Allure Best of Beauty Award Winners. Get 10% off with code BLUEDOT.
