Ocean Bloom Ingredients
We’re inspired by nature’s power and diversity. We use natural ingredients and ingredients of natural origin from all over the world in our formulations, creating trusted products that do what they say they will and feel great on your skin.
Our ingredients are either natural, of natural origin or synthetic. Natural ingredients come from plants, and use low impact processing methods like freeze-drying. They also include ingredients such as palm oil which we can assure you is certified organic, certified sustainable and is purchased from farms on the RSPO members list.
Ingredients of natural origin originally come from plants, but have been modified in some way to make them more functional. A good example is refined sunflower oil. Crude edible oil from renewable sources contains impurities, which are removed during the refining process.

Vitamin C is one of the most exciting, research-proven ingredients you can apply to skin. This water-soluble antioxidant is a natural component of healthy skin. When we’re young, vitamin C levels in skin’s outermost two layers (epidermis and dermis) are abundant, but as we age, these levels naturally deplete. Unprotected sun exposure (UV damage) and pollution can accelerate this decline, leading to skin looking and feeling dull, uneven, and less firm than it once was.
