1. Why we add Oxygen
Oxygen is the all-star ingredient in everything we make. It's all around you and in the air you breathe. But over time, our skin can be deprived of the oxygen normally delivered through the bloodstream.
An oxygen-rich environment is good for your cells; it speeds up cell metabolism and helps your body produce new cells. (That’s why physicians and athletes use hyperbaric chambers to speed tissue healing). Oxygen is great for your skin. Increased circulation of oxygenated blood is good for skin cells. It results in faster cell metabolism and therefore healthier, fresher-looking skin.
So, how does your skin get more oxygen? Some recent studies have shown that the skin absorbs oxygen from an O2 supersaturated environment, in other words, from the outside in. The billions of microbubbles in our products create an oxygen-rich environment that allows your skin to absorb oxygen where it needs it the most.
2. Why we use Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance produced by your body that delivers amazing benefits to your skin. It is a natural humectant, meaning that it draws moisture into the skin. It plumps and hydrates, which relieves dryness and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It even speeds healing when applied topically. In other words, it is an all-around powerhouse for smooth, supple skin.
However, just as with oxygen, over time its levels in the skin can be depleted. Natural aging, UV radiation, and pollution in the air reduce the levels of hyaluronic acid in our skin. Truly O2 skincare helps replenish the level of hyaluronic acid in your skin to maintain and enhance its natural benefits.
3. The other stuff we use (the team players)
Keeping your skin hydrated is a core principle of good skincare. We use a short list of all-natural ingredients like shea butter, sweet almond oil, organic lecithin, and natural glycerin that keep moisture in your skin. These ingredients work together by forming a light barrier, while also attracting moisture to the skin’s surface.
Keeping the skin hydrated means reducing visible lines and the signs of aging, while also keeping skin bright, soft and beautiful to touch. Our simple blend is light, non-greasy, and absorbs quickly and easily. We also use Alpha-tocopheral (Vitamin E) to help heal dry skin and prevent damage from UV radiation.
4. The stuff we keep out
It’s not just what we put in our products that makes them great; it’s what we keep out of them. We don’t use fragrances, dyes, or additives. This means that you get the benefits of our natural ingredients without the harms of toxic chemicals found in many other products.
Incredibly, many toxic and carcinogenic substances banned in other countries are still contained in many products sold in the United States. These include carcinogens like formaldehyde and sodium lauryl sulfate, as well as other chemicals that interfere with our body’s hormones. Many of these ingredients, have been linked to more serious health problems, such as parabens and phthalates.
5. Truly O2 is Cruelty-Free and Responsibly Made
We believe skincare products should be simple, effective, and backed by science. Ours are. We also believe that as well as being good for you, they should be safe for animals and the planet. Ours are.
Our products are all cruelty-free and vegan. We don’t test them on animals, and we don’t use animal products. And we’re more than happy to keep toxic, damaging chemicals out of our products because these are damaging to your body, as well as to the ecosystem. And honestly, the state of our bodies depends on the state of the world around us.
To take it a step further, we also strive to implement ecologically responsible methods and processes wherever we can, both in our packaging and production.
