December Promo: Twice the Love with One Love Organics
This month, our promotion is with One Love Organics: Spend over $200 (pre-tax) and recieve not one, but TWO cleansing sponges – a $26 value! Sweet deal. One for you and one for a friend. It’s kind of our version of a stocking stuffer.
In the meantime, we wanted to give you a little insight into the OLO brand, so asked a few questions of founder, Suzanne LeRoux. Learn a bit about the brand and get to know the awesome (and super cute) sponges below.
1/ What was your inspiration/motivation behind launching One Love Organics?
My motivation for launching One Love Organics stems from my belief in the power of a well-executed beauty ritual. Indulging in self-care is how I made it through college and law school with my sanity intact. I loved it so much that I embarked on formal studies in aromatherapy, integrative herbology, holistic nutrition and cosmetic chemistry while practicing law full time. It was my husband, Chase, who encouraged me to focus my passion, expertise and business skills on developing One Love Organics and launching officially in 2010.
We created One Love Organics to offer a simpler approach to beauty: a sensitive yet effective alternative to all those ubiquitous bottles and the mysterious stuff they contain. Our philosophy is focused on a few supreme, certified organic and natural products that make skin care fun, easy and effective.
One of the original OLO products, Skin Savior, is still a best seller.
2/ You're constantly launching new hit products! How do you decide on what the next product will be and how do set about developing it from conception to something that people love and use?
I think we are able to launch hit products at One Love Organics, because we listen to our engaged group of OLO consumers for direction on the development of new products.
As the chief formulator and founder, I develop our one-of-a-kind formulas at the One Love Organics ECOCERT® licensed manufacturing facility located on St. Simons Island, Georgia. Because we control both the R&D process and the manufacturing of our own products, we are uniquely positioned to conceive, test and release products with care and efficiency, and without the external constraints of contract manufacturers.
One Love Organics develops and manufactures its products in small batches at the company’s ECOCERT® licensed manufacturing facility, 1 of only 10 such facilities licensed in the United States for natural and organic cosmetics. We control every facet of production from sourcing to shipping so that our customers can trust our commitment to the quality, value, integrity and pureness of each product that we produce.
3/ The cleansing sponges: What makes them so great and any specific secrets on using them?
The Cleansing sponge is made from 100 percent preservative –free konjac root fiber. Konjac root is an Asian-cultivated, root-based vegetable that is naturally alkaline, helps to balance skin and nourishes skin with vitamins, protein and natural minerals. Due to Konjac fiber’s excellent and water-holding properties, the material is very soft and elastic. As a result, The Cleansing Sponge has an extremely gently texture and can be used on the face, neck, and even the very delicate under-eye area.
The Cleansing Sponges are ideal for everyday use, even on the most sensitive skin, and are very simple to sue. Simply dampen the sponge in warm water until it softens and expands to double its original size. Apply cleanser to sponge and gently massage skin in circular motions. Rinse thoroughly after each use and hang to dry. We love using this sponge with One Love Organics’ cleansers, including the Easy Does it Foaming Cleanser, Vitamin B Cleansing Oil and Brand New Day Scrub + Masque.
