I found out about Osmia when my mom gave me two of their products as an eco-friendly zero waste  Christmas gift! She's a nurse and the founder is a physician, so that's how she found it. My mom chose a himalayan body buff and rosemary body mousse, both of which I absolutely LOVE!

The products came in small reusable glass jars, and their labels are made from rock and resin and are 100% biodegradable!  The gift set my mom gave me also came in a small reusable burlap bag. 

So not all of Osmia's products are zero-waste friendly. Many of the lotions and liquid soaps come in pump bottles with plastic tops.  However they do make a variety of solid soaps and jared goods that I would say are acceptable for a zero-waste lifestyle. And if you are thinking of not going head first into zero waste, but still want to explore more environmentally conscious options, Osmia is great place to look.

I also like Osmia because I consider them to be a truly non-toxic company. You can pronounce all of their ingredients and they have a list of never-ever ingredients that won't ever be in any of their products. They include:

  • Parabens
  • Ethoxylated ingredients
  • Phthalates
  • Synthetic color
  • Sulfates
  • Synthetic fragrance
  • Petrochemicals

So while Osmia isn't a perfect zero-waste company, they are nontoxic, environmentally conscious and have zero waste options available, which is why they made my list of Company Spotlights.
