You may remember Ogee Organic Skincare from their impressive 1st place finish at the LaunchVT Competition, which featured a $30,000 in cash along with other prizes.
Since the company’s start in 2014, they have successfully raised start-up funding, developed state-of-the-art organic formulations, packaging and marketing initiatives. And now, they have just launched their Ogee.com website, a fully functional online store, as well as kicked off their Instagram (instagram.com/ogeebeauty) and Facebook (facebook.com/ogeeskincare) campaigns.
What is Ogee?
Ogee is a new line of luxury, certified-organic and effective skincare products. Through their extensive research on skincare, they found that women wanted both an organic product that really worked and transparency in the ingredients in their products. “We really pushed the boundaries of naturally scientific formulations,” said co-founder Mark Rice when describing the technology behind the products.
Their "secret ingredient" is Organic Jojoba Oil. Unlike other skincare oils, the wax structure of jojoba oil is very similar to the natural oils of our skin. Which means it not only moisturizes, but absorbs faster than other oils. Rice explained, “Jojoba Oil’s unique molecular structure makes it the best natural oil for skin.”
Why They Are Impressive
They are committed to environmentally friendly and healthy practices. Their website even states that "Our uncompromising standards mean we will never use petroleum derivatives, parabens, synthetic fragrances, formaldehyde, or GMOs." They also support the Organic Farming Research Foundation (OFRF).
