Oquist’s philosophy lies in the Art and Beauty of nature.
That is why we created Waterless (I) and Multifunctional (II) products that do not harm nature or your skin (which is really nature too). To honor Earth we decided to store our formulations in a Sustainable clay Sculpture (III), made to be upcycled in your home.
Waterless formulas means 100% product for your money, since a standard skin and body care product contains 80-97% water as a so called “filler". This also means we are not shipping unnecessary weight and we need less packaging. By eliminating water from our formulations we ensure a super potent and multifunctional product without preservatives at the same time as we reduce our Carbon Footprint by ~80%.
Multifunctional products are the future, or so we believe. Our portfolio consists of 4 cosmetic products that together replace a total of 20 products. We know great skin can be achieved by less steps, time and units. Our aim is to reduce your cosmetic product unit need in half.
All packaging in our portfolio is intended to be upcycled after the content inside is finished. Use it as an olive oil dispenser, vase, book holder, tea bowl, espresso cup, jewelry container etc. The only limit is your imagination! We have thoughtfully developed each piece of packaging together with ceramic artists and each piece has its own unique story. Our hope is that this story will continue its life in your home as an upcycled object.
If you nevertheless want to dispose of it, remove the plugs and sort per local regulations. Even if the packaging is not properly disposed it will not do any harm to nature and eventually return to the soil in the form of small rocks.
