OSEA Malibu – Vegan Skincare from the Sea


It’s our largest organ.

Experience has shown me that diet has more of an affect on the appearance of skin than anything else.  However, I do think it is important to use great skincare. I want to be using products which contain high-quality ingredients, are simple to use, and most importantly — do not test on animals.

With these stipulations in mind, there are two brands which I gravitate towards: DermaE and OSEA Malibu.

For the last few months I have been using the OSEA Malibu line, and these products fit the bill.

All of their products are vegan, gluten free, and cruelty free. I love that none of their ingredients OR final products are ever tested on animals, and OSEA products do not contain any of the following common cosmetic ingredients:

● Animal By­Products          ● GMOs
● Gluten
● Nanomaterials

● Petrochemicals          ● Petroleum
● Phthalates
● Sulfates

● Palm Oil
● Parabens
● PEG Compounds

  • Synthetic Color
  • Synthetic Fragrance

My first love is the Anti-Aging Body Balm.  I find it to be the perfect finale to my weekly mineral salt baths.  After a lovely soak, I will slather myself with this coconut oil based balm.  In their words:

Nourish and tone the skin with this luscious, silky, sea-mineral enriched body balm. Alaria Esculenta marine extract improves the skin’s elasticity and Macrocystis algae is high in iodine, vitamins and minerals to heal sun-damaged skin and prevent wrinkles. Botanical Coconut and Babassu oils are readily absorbed and rejuvenate dry, flaky skin leaving behind the scent of paradise.

I’ve found the Atmosphere Protection Cream to be great underneath my makeup. It leaves a matte finish, which I find to be the perfect base/primer for foundation. It leaves a lovely, almost air-brushed finish which looks great in photographs.

If you are in the market for a cleanser, you really cannot go wrong with the Ocean Cleanser. This ph balanced formula has worked great for makeup removal.  For very sensitive, dry or Rosaceaic skin, I would recommend the Ocean Cleansing Milk.

Loaded with nature’s best skin soothers like Water Lily extract, this super gentle creamy cleanser calms redness and inflammation on contact. DPHP and organic algae increase elasticity, boost collagen production and ensure long-lasting hydration. Leaves skin looking and feeling rejuvenated with a soft glow. Fragrance-free and pH balanced.

The last item is what I like to call ‘my secret weapon.’ The OSEA Undaria Argan Oil is a little miracle in a bottle.  This product is formulated to “restore the youthful glow and luster diminished by the effects of the sun and aging. Perfect for sensitive skin.”

I’ve been pressing it into my skin nightly prior to applying moisturizer. If I accidentally forget one night, I can tell a difference.  I never want to be without this little gem!
