REAL Organic Products, handmade with Love.
Founded in 2010 by sisters Christine Buchanan and Louiza Rademan, Oh-lief was born out of their love for nature and the desire to use products that would not harm the skin or the environment. Growing up in a household where green and organic were valued principles, Christine found herself in a predicament while pregnant with her first baby boy. While trying to find a skin care range to use during her pregnancy, Christine was dissatisfied with the conventional body products on the market. And this is how the idea came out to develop a new range of natural baby and body products, based on old family recipes.
Oh-Lief references olive oil, which is the main ingredient found in all the products, as well as their love for natural skin care. Oh-Lief products do not contain any harsh chemicals, artificial fragrances, petroleum, parabens, artificial colors or nut oils. They use a base of organic olive oil and beeswax, which is combined with the natural properties of a number of other organic ingredients to form a complete range of products that is ideal for all skin types.
Oh-Lief natural olive baby products are specifically developed for babies with sensitive skin. Production is restricted to small batches to ensure freshness and high quality standards. The original recipes were formulated using only natural products found in the area surrounding the small town of Riebeek West located in the countryside 2 hours outside Cape Town, South Africa.
Oh-Lief relies on the healing benefits of ‘nature’. Keeping it simple is the best for babies which is why ingredients are kept minimal, and each ingredient is carefully selected based on its healing properties.
