Body Guard can be used morning and night to nourish, repair and protect your skin. Apply the cream to clean and dry skin and massage it in until it has been absorbed. Pay particular attention to the areas of the body that have a tendency to be extra dry (knees, elbows, etc.). Avoid cleansers that contain sulfates and instead look for cold saponified soaps as they are less drying.
If you would prefer a more light-weight texture, we recommend that you use our moisturizing body milk Magic Milk.
To complete your routine, try our hand and nail cream Happy Hands and our comforting foot cream Feet Good.
- I have dry, irritated skin, will Body Guard help me?
Yes, Body Guard, being very rich, will nourish, repair and protect your skin. We recommend that you apply the cream generously to damaged skin and massage it in until it absorbs. We also recommend you don't take showers that are too hot as hot water can dry out your skin.
- Is Body Guard suitable for children's skin?
Yes, of course! Body Guard is perfectly suitable for children as its healthy mix of ingredients means it's harmless to young skin too. It softens and protects your skin while reducing red patches and irritation.
- I am pregnant, can I use Body Guard?
Yes, this nourishing cream does not contain essential oils so it's perfectly suitable for pregnant women!
- Can I use Body Guard to prevent stretch marks?
Yes, this cream is very nourishing and will soften your skin and thus it will prevent stretch marks. We recommend that you apply it in the mornings and evenings, massaging it into the required areas
- Can I use Body Guard on my face?
There is nothing to stop you using Body Guard on your face and it will moisturize your skin, however, its rich texture means it is not perfect for the face.
- Can I use Body Guard after sun exposure?
Yes, the active ingredients in Body Guard will help regenerate your skin after sun exposure. Great for developping that perfect summer tan!

5 simple ways to reduce the environmental impact of your skincare product!
Try, when possible, to order products in packs of 2 or 3. Not only will you save money (shipping fees + a boOnus of 4 or 9 euros) but you will also reduce the environmental impact of your products by having fewer deliveries.
Why? The experts who carried out an investigation on the environmental impact of oOlution found that shipping had a significant environmental impact on the life cycle of a product. To reduce this impact, it was necessary to reduce the volume of shipments and so we had boxes custom made according to the size of our products. It is also better to ship as many packages as possible at the same time, so we introduced a boOnus: 4 euros for every pack of two products ordered and 9 euros for every pack of 3 products ordered!
If you can pick up your package at a Pick-up Point without using your car, it is much better to choose this method of shipment. If you cannot reach a Relay Point without using your car, it is better to have your package shipped directly to your home address. The Mondial Relay delivery to parcel shops is available in Belgium; Germany, Luxembourg, UK, Spain, Austria, Italy, and Portugal.
Why? During the analysis of the environmental impacts of all the products throughout their life cycle, our eco-conception experts took into account shipment. While studying the different possibilities and the different types of transportation, we were able to determine the shipment type that has the least impact on the environment according to different situations.
Whether it's with soap or gel, it's better to clean your face with cold water. It stimulates blood micro-circulation for a nice complexion and it saves energy, as there's no need to heat water.
Why? Heating water while you wash your face uses a lot of energy over the course of a product's lifetime.
4. Makeup Removal
Try to avoid using cotton pads or disposable wipes. Instead, try reusable, washable wipes made of plants (organic cotton, linen, hemp, bamboo, eucalyptus..)
Why? Cotton pads are not the best for your skin, especially if it's sensitive. Furthermore, making conventional cotton (non-organic) is the process that consumes the most pesticides in the world. The less waste we produce, the better the situation for our world-wide biodiversity.
Discard your empty bottles in the recycling bin, (or post them back to us free in the envelope you receive with your order, and we'll do it for you!).
Why? Contrary to almost all existent bottle pumps, oO's skincare bottles do not have a metal spring so they are really 100% recyclable. With a bottle pump made of 100% recyclable plastic and a well-established recycling system, there are no excuses!
There you goO! With these 5 actions, you can lessen the environmental impact of your beauty routine. Isn't that awesoOme?%MCEPASTEBIN%
After 3 years of research and development, oOlution was created in 2013 by biochemical engineer Anne-Marie Gabelica. Anne-Marie went on to become the beauty and well-being expert for the TV programme "La Quotidienne" where she gave out advice on well-being and natural beauty. oOlution was one of the first brands to be awarded the Slow Cosmetique award in 2015. Our vision of a sustainable cosmetics brand is to maximise the usage of ingredients that are good for the skin, such as plant-based oils, distilled plant water and plant extracts, while not using any ingredients that are harmful or toxic to the skin, such as hydrogenated or esterified oils, sulphates or synthetic ingredients. Therefore, all oOlution cosmetics are made with 100% natural ingredients and each one is made from a diverse range of organic plant-based ingredients, to produce a solution for the different needs of all types of skin.
oOlution isn't just good for your skin, it's good for the planet too! In 2013 we won a prize from the Minister for Ecology for our commitment to increasing biodiversity. We fight against the use of palm oil which poses an enormous threat to the environment. As well as being the first brand to 100% exclude the use of palm oil and all of its derivatives, a part of our profit goes towards preserving the Boreno Rainforest against deforestation which is linked to the usage of palm oil. In May 2018 we reached 5 hectares of preserved forest, and this is only the beginning! In order to go further with our ethical and ecological movement, all our packaging is 100% recyclable and all of our products are vegan and not tested on animals.
