Hello dear family, friends, and the great unknown!
Many of you know I’ve been a bartender for
18 years, that is no longer my employment due to the pandemic crisis. This misfortune has shed light towards a pursuit of passion. I want to go full force with an environmentalist approach with my sustainable organic skincare company I started in 2014.
One Love Body & Soul LLC is a Maui based conscious company that takes to heart the ingredients and packaging used in our products. Our Mission is to help others live a plastic-free lifestyle while using products you can trust. We have a passion for sourcing local and/or organic ingredients, showcased in recyclable, compostable packaging that is not only nurturing for our body but as well as our Earth.
Did you know Hawaii is the first state in the US to ban the sale of sunscreen containing the coral-harming chemicals oxybenzone and octinoxate? This ushers in a new era of reefsafe sunscreens, the new law goes into effect January 1, 2021.
Right now I’m in the process of getting the SPF 30 mineral sunscreen manufactured and FDA approved. This is where I need help with the costs.
Once this sunscreen has it’s approval stamps (SPF 30 and FDA approved) major retail stores like Target, Sprouts, Whole Foods,Trader Joes any others will legally be able to take on more of our products.
This will be huge for One Love Body & Soul putting us on the map nationally with other like minded brands!
Currently OLBS is Peta cruelty-free approved. I’m working on the acquiring the Non GMO project verification and Leaping Bunny Logos for additional product seals. ♻️ ✔️
