Ocean, sun, earth, and atmosphere. They’re not only the four elements of nature — they’re also the principles behind vegan skincare line, OSEA. Inspired and sourced from the ocean, these products are new to the milk + honey family and are available at our 2nd Street District, Hill Country Galleria, River Oaks, and South Lamar locations, as well as online.
This botanical line of gluten-free products is the brainchild of founder, Jenefer Palmer. On a business trip to Brazil, Jenefer discovered the skin-rejuvenating power of algae and decided to make this potent plant a key ingredient in her products. OSEA works to heal the body using natural products that are easy to integrate into your everyday skincare routine. In 2002, the company became the first to sign The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and is committed to producing paraben-free, sulfate-free, synthetic color-free, and fragrance-free products.
