Doing less is better for the environment. The fewer products we use means less packaging to dispose and fewer ingredients to source and ship. Our impact on the environment goes way beyond the glass bottle and recycled box our serum comes in. It starts with every ingredient we source, the packaging, plus the shipping materials and emissions for transportation of every ingredient.

There are many things that go into a finished product, from sourcing to testing. Using fewer products with a more simple, concise ingredient list is better for the environment. Use what your skin needs and nothing more.

There are absolutely no parabens or phthalates in our products, and we never test on animals.

Brightens and visibly evens your complexion for that fabled glow.

Fresh Start Oil Provides Glowing, Fresh Face

I adore the Fresh Start Face Oil. I am 48 years old and wear little or no makeup on a daily basis. After I apply my oil at night my face immediately feels soft and soaks in all the natural ingredients. The best part is waking up the next morning with smooth, glowing skin that feels perfectly moisturized. Otto Skin Goods is my go to skin product line and I recommend it to all my friends... because of its ease and its incredible results!

I love the face oil

I have been searching for a light face oil for some time and found Otto’s fresh start face oil and it has been perfect for my dry skin. I don’t love using lotion so this was a great alternative to keep my face moisturized

Love this face oil!

Use this every morning and it works great! My face is usually horribly dry during the winter but with this oil, it's moisturized and bright and lovely. I haven't used a face lotion in months.

WOW! Need I say more?

This is an absolutely fabulous oil in every way. First, I literally feel like I am glowing when I put this oil on my skin. I would like you to know that I have never said that with any other product I've ever used and I'm a 47 year skincare junkie! Second, the smell it so wonderful. I think it smells a bit like cucumber, but I see that wild harvest lemon is the only ingredient that might make this oil blend smell. It's a smell I look forward to every day! I usually do not use products with citrus essential oils because my skin is very picky and will breakout easily, but I have no adverse reaction to this oil. I am a most happy customer and whole-heartedly recommend this product. Definitely my favorite day oil!

The Ultimate Oil!

I look forward to using this oil daily! It locks in hydration for the entire day and gives my skin a subtle glow - I have not needed foundation/cover up since using Otto Skin Goods, it truly improves the quality and appearance of your skin!
