Soap Rise, the first ever oOlution soap, is an ode to happiness that we have made especially for you for our 6th anniversary ! Because nature is full of plants that help us feel good, all 6 members of the team have chosen an essential oil that makes them happy to add to our soap, as well as more than 20 organic plant-based cold-pressed oils !
Caroline, Elise and Adele chose essential oils with citrus scents: lime, sweet orange and green mandarin respectively ! Citrus fruits have soothing and relaxing properties, ideal for making you feel good ! Anne-Marie chose essential frankincense oil for its harmonizing and stimulating properties. Audrey has chosen ylang-ylang, more floral and sensual, for a feeling of calm and well-being. Finally, Léa chose orange blossom, which brings back memories of her childhood !
This bold mix creates a scent that is soft, sweet and captivating - perfect for a serene shower :)
This cold process soap is made by hand in the traditional way in the Hautes-Alpes. The process of cold saponification consists of making the soap at a low temperature in order to not disturb the plant-based oils that it contains and also to avoid damaging the fatty acids, thus preserving their beneficial properties.
Soap Rise is made up from a unique formula of more than 20 nourishing and refreshing plant-based active ingredients, chosen for their effectiveness by Anne-Marie, Adèle and Léa, our three natural formulation engineers:
24 organic cold pressed plant-based oils:
Sweet almond, Andiroba, Argan, Baobab, Borage, Hemp, Coconut, Rapeseed, Orange blossom, Passionfruit, Pomegranate, Flax, Macadamia, Marula, Kalahari melon seed, Moringa, Brazil nut, Olive, Onager, Perilla, Musk rose, Sesame, Green tea, Sunflower
1 organic oil infusion:
6 organic essential oils:
Lime, Frankincense, Orange blossom, Green mandarin, Sweet orange, Ylang-ylang

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?
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.
