Waste free Organic Oils?

I simply can't tell you how excited I am to have been introduced to this amazing company!

They have been supplying quality oils and ingredients to large mainstream cosmetic retailers for some time now. Their main company O&3 sources organic and sustainable cosmetic ingredients, (mostly carrier oils) for large scale cosmetic companies with quite large minimum order quantity's.

They are a family run business, a brother and 2 sisters. They have very cleverly realised that the Green Beauty movement, and the need for more sustainability in the cosmetics industry, has introduced and opened up a completely new market of small cosmetic and skincare brands. These brands like me are just starting out and wanting to use only organic, natural, sustainable ingredients, that have as little an impact on the environment as possible!

So Makers Ingredients was born! This is a sister company to O&3 with no minimum order quantity!

One of the reasons I'm so excited to start using their oils is because they try wherever possible to source no waste oils.

What this means is:- Cold pressed carrier oils are mostly obtained from the plant seed, for example Grape Seed Oil, Almond Oil, Cherry Kernel Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil.

O&3 / Makers Ingredients thought about the food industry or more specifically the food industry waste products? They now use the unwanted seeds from food production to make some wonderful oils that are so beneficial to the skin, some of these are Strawberry Seed Oil, Raspberry Seed Oil, Apple Seed Oil. But, they still don't skimp on quality, making sure that they only source the unwanted seeds from food companies that also only use quality sustainably sourced produce. Where they cannot obtain no waste oils, they go the extra mile to source sustainably, and they provide proof /documentation of provenience, organic status and quality of the crop.

What I love THE MOST so far about this company is its passion to reduce waste, the way they have opened their arms to the smaller brands and us kitchen table formulators, its promise to produce quality sustainable organic oils and the ease of which you can require all the relevant documentation for every product your purchase from them. They have a Dropbox that you can simply go into, find the product you have just purchased and download the documents.

I love the website, the quickness of delivery, the packaging and the thank you card.


Like I said super excited. Now to formulate!
