Makeup, pollution, sweat: we know (and we can feel) that skin faces lots of irritants every day that can eventually block pores and prevent skin from breathing. Cleansing is therefore a key step in maintaining a complexion that is clear, smooth and free from imperfections !
The aim of our sulfate-free cleansing gel Gentle Angel is to clear the epidermis of all the impurities it picks up during the day. Being very effective whilst being gentle and not drying skin out, it can be used on all skin types, even sensitive skin ! Gentle Angel is full of over 25 organic, plant-based and purifying active ingredients, such as organic rosemary and ylang-ylang essential oil.
At oOlution, we have gotten rid of all the aggresive surfactants that are often used in cleansing gels. That's why, despite being very effective, Gentle Angel does not foam or lather and is kind to sensitive skin.
Gentle Angel's scent beings with notes of greens and citrus fruits before finishing with notes of Vanilla.

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.
