Get back to basics with simple, proven ingredients.


What makes a product effective? Active ingredients. Why? Simply put, active ingredients are the reason you use products in the first place. We formulate our products using clinically proven actives: vitamin C, niacinamide, fruit acids, hyaluronic acid and antioxidants.

Here’s what you’ll never find in our products: Parabens, formaldehyde-releasing preservatives, propylene gycol, phthalates, synthetic color or synthetic fragrance.

Simple is better for your skin and for our planet.


We are dedicated to sustainability at Otto Skin Goods. In addition to sourcing packaging, bottles and shipping materials that are recyclable, we source ethical ingredients and craft our products in small batches for less waste. You can feel good knowing that your own commitment to minimal skincare is creating a minimal impact for our world, too.

Our Commitment

What sets us apart? Single note formulation.


What sets us apart is our ability to concisely curate formulations with active and plant-based ingredients, which are independently placed throughout our line of products. We call this single note formulating—a revolutionary and responsible way to formulate skincare that gets results but gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin types.

The key is single note formulation.

Every product has its own unique set of ingredients and purpose.

Active ingredients are used at correct percentages and not repeated in any other product to reduce harm and overuse.

Plant-based extracts are utilized to enhance the effects of the active ingredients and are chosen for their low irritant and allergy potential.

Each Otto product is results-driven for specific skin concerns. (think: helps to visibly brighten, hydrate and refresh)
