Lubrizol Skin Essentials works with a lot of clients producing hundreds of products but has invested in only one.
One Ocean Beauty is a breakthrough, sustainable beauty and wellness collection that launched last year with the help of an equity investment from Lubrizol Skin Essentials. What moved Lubrizol to offer this unprecedented support to a startup company?
We deeply believe that the next generation of successful beauty brands will be more than socially conscious; they’ll be socially committed to an unprecedented degree. One Ocean Beauty is already there.
It works with innovative Lubrizol technology to develop clean, clinically proven and sustainably produced beauty and wellness products. The collection is free of GMOs, parabens, sulfates, phthalates, PEGs, nanoparticles, mineral oil and synthetic fragrance. The company also uses sustainable packaging and shipping materials.
Perhaps most importantly, it has donated a substantial sum to Oceana, the largest international ocean conservation and advocacy organization. A commitment to protect and restore the oceans underlies all of One Ocean Beauty’s products, from topical skincare to marine-derived nutritional supplements.
And, of course, the products work. They’ve been clinically proven to reduce wrinkle depth, increase skin’s elasticity, decrease roughness, reduce shine and more.
This rare combination of cause and effects has led Vogue to hail One Ocean Beauty as the “new wave in beauty,” while O, the Oprah Magazine called it a “biotech trailblazer.”
We’re proud to have played a part in helping One Ocean Beauty become a company that will serve as a role model and standard for other socially committed beauty brands.
