Great for: Natural Skincare, Hair Care, Body Care, Makeup, Mum & Baby
Odylique offers a range of skincare, body care and hair care natural, organic products, not tested on animals. Available in their online shop.
The products are hand-made in their Suffolk workshop – not outsourced to a factory. This is quite unusual in skin care manufacturing and it ensures you the highest level of product quality and freshness.
Their philosophy is simple: All ingredients must have therapeutic value, and the product must be a joy to use. This means they use actives – herbs and essential oils – in therapeutic concentrations for optimum benefit. Plant oils must be virgin and cold-pressed so that they have their full antioxidant vitamin-content intact, so as to actively nourish the skin and protect it from premature ageing.
Odylique products are free from synthetic chemicals and are all certified to strict Soil Association organic standards. There were one of the first companies to create certified organic cosmetics and follow the precautionary principle to formulate the purest cosmetics possible.
Odylique was founded by people passionate about the power and efficacy of genuine natural skin care, particularly for sensitive skin.
The founder, Margaret began making skin care from natural ingredients over 30 years ago. ‘Conventional’ cosmetics didn’t suit her allergy-prone skin and she was desperate to find a remedy for her family’s eczema problems. She felt there must be a healthier, more effective way to make skin care than using petroleum and artificial additives. So, armed with qualifications in herbal medicine and aromatherapy, and a passion for the genius of nature, she set about creating truly effective formulations, based only on organic herbs, plant oils and natural active ingredients that were compatible with the most sensitive skin. The result was Essential Care (renamed Odylique – which means ‘power of nature’) that she launched as a company with her daughter Abi and husband Colin in 2003.
Odylique is still a family-owned company run by Abi and Margaret and supported by a wonderful team.
