OUR PROMISE FOR A BETTER FUTURE
My vision when I created Ouli's Ointment was to keep it simple and reduce waste in the beauty industry. This came from being a makeup artist over 14 years, I have thrown away a lot of packaging from new products, as the trends are always changing there is always new product and new packaging that comes with it.
So, what does Ouli's do to change that?
Our tins are made from aluminium making them lightweight and durable, our seals are biodegrable and made from vegetable cellulose and we have no outer packaging, overall reducing shipping costs and footprints.
About 21% of global greenhouse gas emissions are contributed by industrial sector, of which aluminum industries accounted for ∼1.0%.
Aside from our tins being fully reusable, aluminium is the most recyclable material available.
Aluminium is corrosion resistant and can be recycled over and over again, requiring just a fraction of the energy used to produce the primary metal.
And our shipping materials are made from 100% recycled materials.
Our ingredients are organic, this may seem like a small step but as we have learned from bees alone, pesticides contribute to damaging our eco system so using organic ingredients reduces the impact.
Manufacturing in house gives us control over where and how our ingredients are sourced and allows us to work in small batches minimizing the amount of product that is wasted to zero. We have full control over our supply chain and the quality of our ingredients.
Working with regenerative farms to help know where our ingredients come from and that they are contributing positively to the environment by using the land and caring for the soil in a way that will yield more over time and increase resilience to climate change.
For a small business we are doing our part and we hope you will continue to support Ouli's as my vision is to continue growth in a sustainable way and with your support will continue down this road.

The issues that women with cancer and cancer survivors confront each day are complex. Living with cancer and the harsh treatments that often accompany the disease are known to lead to inhibition of emotional expression, decreased physical ability, altered physical appearance, depression, high stress, anxiety and other detrimental effects that hinder the physical, mental, and spiritual well-being of women. The Foundation for Living Beauty cares about each individual woman, and applies our wrap-around approach to helping women regain their sense of femininity, self-worth, beauty and emotional stability after coping with the taxing effects of cancer and chemotherapy.
