One Love Organics was one of the very first brands I tried almost 8 years ago when I started blogging about better beauty and it just kind of became a measuring stick that I used going forward. Why?

🤍I love the efficacy of this brand. I will recommend their Botanical B Cleansing Oil until the day I die it’s so good. 

🤍I love the integrity of this brand. They found a way to get their products ECOCERT® certified (the gold standard of better beauty certifications) even when there was no possible option in sight. 

🤍I love their won’t-settle-for-less approach—like when other brands were smelling like patchouli and bergamot essential oils, OLO came in like BAM, our products actually smell good and still meet ECOCERT® specs (and this was back in 2010!). 

🤍I love their transparency and willingness to educate like last year when the TNK took a virtual tour of the OLO manufacturing facility with founder Suzanne LeRoux herself.

 🤍I love their commitment to excellence as Suzanne is still directing formulations and testing all of OLOs new releases herself. 

I’ve been using OLO exclusively for the past month (TRULY!) and not only does my skin feel amaze, but I’m also so excited to dish on my absolute top pick faves. But first, let me tell you a little bit more about what makes this brand a standout.   

IN THIS POST:


Why One Love Organics is a standout in better beauty

Aside from having one of my all-time favorite exfoliators, One Love Organics is a clear standout because of its commitment to incredibly high, ethical ingredient standards. You know how hard it is to determine which certifications are legit or not, but with OLO, they’ve made it simple BY BUILDING THEIR OWN ECOCERT® MANUFACTURING FACILITY. 

Yep, they went there.

Founder/CEO Suzanne LeRoux told us what that means a couple years ago:

“We have a system in place in order to achieve and maintain certification that tracks ingredients from source to finished formula, ensures the freshness and organic and/or natural origin of each ingredient and finished formula, ensures that we only use recyclable packaging, that we have sustainable manufacturing methods to reduce waste and encourages the recyclability of everything we use in our facility—including paper.

Our cleaning agents and even pest control methods must also be approved as well. We are physically inspected and audited each year by our certification officer. It’s quite rigorous and not only covers the products themselves but also our business practices, including how we market the products as natural and organic as well. I can honestly say that I will purchase anything with confidence that has an ECOCERT®/COSMOS seal after working with them for the past six years. They are ethical and thorough with every detail!”

Basically, they’re fulfilling all my wildest dreams when it comes to ingredients, third-party testing, formulas, cleaning agents and more—but above all, they make products I wanna reach for every day.

My top One Love Organics picks for a full skincare routine

It’s rare that I’d actually want to craft an entire skincare routine from one brand, but OLO makes that a simple choice. Since the brand launched with 3 products in 2010, it’s grown to include beautifully diverse products that cover all my bases for a skincare routine.

Here are my top picks, which can *easily* be compiled to complete a full day/night time routine. If you’re looking for a simple way to boost your skin without worrying about the cocktails you might accidentally be creating by crafting your own routine, OLO is the answer.
