Why Organic?

 

Your skin is your largest organ, which is why you should be just as concerned about the topical products you're using as the foods you're consuming.  Everyday we are exposed to free radicals and other environmental scavengers that can wreck havoc on our skin and health. But, did you know, on average, women are exposed daily to over five hundred synthetic chemicals from just her beauty products alone?

With this shift in consumer awareness, more and more people looking to get away from chemicals, are switching their conventional products for cleaner, organic alternatives and finding that natural, organic skincare is actually more effective and works better.  This makes sense, because the absence of pesticides and fertilizers in soil means plants are able to boost their production of phytochemicals (antioxidants and vitamins) thus making them safer, more powerful and beneficial than synthetic ingredients used in commercially, mass produced products.  

Natural products have been used for centuries and are finally getting their place on mainstream shelves.  It is projected that the natural skincare movement will hit $13.2 billion in 2018, and for good reason. You don't need synthetic, unpronounceable ingredients in your skincare to get results.

At O.W.L., we are committed to providing you highly concentrated, active products that produce real results.  All of our ingredients are derived from natural, certified organic sources, which means you're getting a more effective product, void of harmful, synthetic toxins that can build up in your system and negatively impact your health.
