Free from harsh, allergenic and sensitizing ingredients
To us, safety means not only avoiding harmful ingredients, but reducing allergy risk and correctly utilizing active ingredients. Our ingredients are vetted for potential harm, allergy, irritation, compatibility and necessary percentage—only then is an active or plant-based ingredient added to one of our products.
Otto Skin Goods is focused on blending ingredients to achieve specific results at just the right time of day. We believe that many skin issues are a result of sensitized or reactive skin, caused by harsh and improper use of both active and botanical ingredients.
No animal testing + low environmental impact
Our products are never tested on animals because we test them on ourselves, friends and brand ambassadors. Plus, we’re always ready to pivot, improve and update our products whenever research, science or a friendly recommendation requires us to.
We use glass packaging whenever possible because we believe this is better for the environment.
We are careful with the selection of our ingredients and avoid anything that is either sourced unethically or harmful to the environment once rinsed off.
Supporters of slow beauty and growth
We hand-pick influencers and require them to actually use our products and actually like them before posting.
We are slowly growing our social media following with thoughtful content, educational blogs and purposeful interaction.
We choose models that represent real life, many of which are personal friends.
We are careful with our language and try to take a positive, encouraging view of beauty and age. We are not into anti-aging, overnight results, empty promises or unrealistic claims.
Family-owned and made in the USA, and supporting others like that, too
When it comes to almost all of our business needs, we strive to support other local and small businesses whenever possible. For example, we seek out local designers, web builders, packaging, social media management, copy, photography and marketing.
